About Draper Lake

A Place Like No Other

Draper Lake Coastal Village is a private development comprised of two magnificent wooded peninsulas separated by a tributary to Draper Lake.  Draper Lake is one of several very special coastal dunal 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.  This plan was created in partnership with Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company.

Draper Lake boasts a unique natural environment featuring a protected ecosystem harboring unique flora, fauna, and marine life, surrounding live oaks and pine forests, and an immediate proximity to the Gulf of Mexico. This single family residential community of 96 lots includes two community pools, boat houses that provide access to the coastal dune lake and the Gulf, and a 48 foot observation tower.  Pedestrian trails provide a continuous link to the greenway system running through the property. Golf carts are provided by the association to access a private cabana that allows easy access to the public beach on Gulf View Heights.

The site layout and architectural character of the new traditional Coastal Village for Draper Lake 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. The Regulating Plan and Architectural, Urban and Street standards regulate the layout and character of the buildings, circulation, and open space.


Amenities include bridges, two boathouses, the observation tower and two swimming pools. Each pool has a gathering area with comfortable seating and a fireplace.  The Draper Lake village neighborhood is a place where you can walk, boat, fish or swim. Pedestrian trails extend from the lake front to each of the two village greens located on the east and west peninsula. The Village Greens offer each peninsula a central public space that is a great location for gatherings. Additional public spaces are provided in smaller neighborhood greens. The east and west peninsulas are connected by a wooden pedestrian bridge from which you can enjoy the expanse of Draper Lake and the dunes beyond.
