DESTIN, Fla. (WKRG) — Standing three stories tall with beautiful balcony views, there is a new top dog for the most expensive beachfront property in Destin.

A Texas family bought the home in March off Ocean Boulevard, closing at $6,650,000.

“This transaction exceeds any previous sale in the community by more than $130,000.”
