Nestled along the shore of the Choctawhatchee Bay in east South Walton, the Point Washington community is a long established residential area just a short drive from Grayton Beach, Seaside and WaterColor. A historical area, Point Washington is home to the 163-acre Eden Gardens State Park featuring the Wesley House, a plantation mansion dating back to 1897. The landscape is defined by winding live oak trees draped in Spanish moss and most homes feature an Old Florida cottage style architecture with metal roofs and covered porches. The protected Point Washington State Forest allows for nature exploration with driving and walking trails available for public use while Bay Elementary and a few area churches make this community popular among families. Neighborhoods include the Daughettes, Bay Magnolia, The Woods and Audubon Point.
