The Heritage – A VIE Legacy Show Home

As the winds gently whisper through the sea oats on the dunes, a new legacy is born near the Gulf of Mexico.

The Heritage—A VIE Legacy Show Home is a brand-new residence that was unveiled in late Summer 2022 to the Heritage Dunes community just off Scenic Highway 30A in Northwest Florida. Located on 30A but not of 30A, the home’s southern coastal design evokes an unrivaled sense of refined living akin to the classic elegance of Ralph Lauren meets beachside life.

Gerald F. Burwell of Burwell Associates, Inc. is the principal architect of the VIE Show Home, which has a layout that will inspire those who will reside in it while connecting them with the land, the nearby white-sand shores, and the emerald Gulf waters.

The show home is the first of nine new homes designed by Burwell and developed by Bella Mare Real Estate Holdings, LLC, in this gated, rental-restricted community. Consisting of only 30 home sites, The Heritage embodies a dream for its future homeowners to embrace gracious living within the stunning generational enclave of Heritage Dunes. The Heritage Dunes community offers a private beach, a grotto-style pool, and peaceful luxury beneath swaying palm leaves. The developers at Bella Mare chose this legacy community for their latest project for its central location in the heart of 30A.

The key team of partners and collaborators on this project includes Grand Bay Construction, La Florida Coastal Properties, LLC, Patrick Hodges Land Studio, and Duce & Company Interiors. The Heritage embraces a sense of place and the values of a lifestyle that will bring pride to the neighborhood and its neighbors.
