The Alys Beach development in Walton County, FL was designed by Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, starting in 2003. The development covers over 150 acres; 20 acres are preserved wetlands. Lots begin at $400,000 and homes starting at a million.
Located between Seaside and Rosemary Beach, Alys Beach is the third meticulously thought-out DPZ-designed resort community along Highway 30-A. The site reflects rural-to-urban transect, with the urban village being right off the beach to the south, and the preserved wetlands to the north. The community is a showcase of sustainability and contains breathtaking architecture. The urban village is also designed to sustain the most torrential storms the Gulf has to offer.
