Parish of Bluewater Point
The Parish is located in the Niceville/Bluewater Bay are of Okaloosa County, Florida. A portion of The Parish fronts Ward Cove, a protected portion of Rocky Bayou and, by extension, Choctawhatchee Bay. The Bay is a popular location for boating, and Ward Cove features a marina. The white sand beaches and emerald water of the Gulf of Mexico are only about 15 minutes away in Destin. The Parish is a short drive from most of the Southeast, including major cities such as Atlanta, Birminham, and New Orleans. Okaloosa Regional Airport, which is served by major commercial airlines, is located about 10 minutes away.
The design inspiration for The Parish is the architecture of the Gulf Coast, particularly that of the French Colonial era in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. The designs that emerged from these places spread throughout the Gulf Coast region and are among the most beloved and respected in the history of American architecture. Like America itself, the architecture was a melding of several different cultures, traditions, and attitudes. Most importantly, the architecture took root in the unique characteristics of the Gulf Coast.
The common spaces of The Parish include the park, street, medians, walkway, and pier. These areas are part of what makes The Parish a community rather than a collection of houses. These common spaces are designed to be beautiful and allow for interaction among neighbors.
