The best Gulf views are always at the top and this PENTHOUSE at the Empress surpasses all others. Sheer elegance only begins to describe this condo which features astonishing views of the GULF, BAY, and LAKE. The semi-private elevator takes you to the foyer which is only shared by 2 units. Once inside you will be greeted by a fully furnished condo with travertine floors, custom ACCENT tile, CUSTOM crown molding, and CUSTOM drapes. The Penthouse features two separate living areas with one focusing on the views of the Gulf and the other the views of the Bay. If the sea breeze is what you desire, pour yourself a glass of wine from the wine bar which has a SUBZERO wine cooler or fix a drink from the wet bar, and step out to the Gulf Balcony which runs along the entire length of the condo! The Empress is only one of very few condos in Destin that boasts balconies on both the Gulf and Bay side. You will not find a Gulf balcony like this since it has 3 exterior ceiling fans, ample seating, and an outdoor TV to enjoy your favorite show, sports game, or SiriusXM music channel.

Enter the kitchen and enjoy granite countertops and high end appliances including a VIKING refrigerator and VIKING 5 burner gas cooktop, WOLF Microwave, WOLF Stove and WOLF Warming Drawer, super quiet THERMADOR Sapphire Dishwasher, and Delta pot filler. To preserve the beauty of the backsplash tile, there are 3 under cabinet electrical outlet strips which provide twelve outlets in the kitchen along with LED under cabinet lighting. The large pantry also has a CUSTOM built spice rack.

Two of the bedrooms have Gulf Views with separate doors to access the Gulf balcony while the third bedroom has amazing views of the Bay. Each bedroom provides the ultimate privacy with its own separate bathroom. The Master bathroom is nothing short of magnificent with inlaid ACCENT tile border, a whirlpool tub, oversized shower with Altman rain head fixture, double vanity, make-up sitting area, and two CUSTOM built walk-in closets. The 2nd master Gulf bathroom includes a walk-in closet and shower/bath combination with ACCENT tile. The third bathroom has a single vanity, sitting area, and shower with ACCENT tile.

This condo comes with a DEEDED GARAGE PARKING SPOT, ARMOR Screen hurricane curtains, SMART Wi-Fi thermostats, HALO water monitoring system, Remote controlled sun shade, and separate climate controlled storage area which is the largest unit at the Empress. SELLER WILL CONSIDER REDUCING THE ASKING PRICE IF BUYER WANTS THE CONDO UNFURNISHED.

The Empress amenities include lakeside pool, whirlpool, and fitness center, and recently remodeled Lobby. The Empress is rental restricted for the first year of ownership and afterwards owners can be put on a waiting list. Rentals over 30 days are allowed.
