Draper Lake | Santa Rosa Beach | Florida


Draper Lake Coastal Village is a development comprised of two magnificent wooded peninsulas separated by a tributary to Draper Lake. Draper Lake is one of few very special coastal dune lakes found along the Florida Panhandle. The lake fronts the Gulf of Mexico beach and is connected to the Gulf through a dune opening. The community land located within the first 100 feet from the lake’s edge is protected from development, providing pedestrian access to the water through winding nature and hiking trails. The master plan is by Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company. 

The site layout and architectural character of the new traditional Coastal Village is designed in character with the building traditions of the historic Great Camps of the Adirondacks, the Chautauqua Assemblies, and other mountain/lake villages and retreats. A Regulating Plan and Architectural, Urban and Street standards regulate the layout and character of the buildings, circulation, and open space.
