Village Commons-Watersound, FL

Watersound OriginsSM

Natural treasures abound in this community that reaches out to the banks of Lake Powell, one of Florida’s largest coastal dune lakes. Watersound OriginsSM community’s meticulously planned neighborhoods embrace the unique environmental resources of the land. Kayak on Lake Powell, walk the trails winding through the community, picnic in the parks or head to the South Walton beaches.  Choose a Watersound®  or other community that complements your lifestyle!

Influenced by maritime architecture of year’s past, homes and common spaces reflect uncompromising aesthetics with a modernized, coastal vernacular. Often described as “A Coastal Village,” Watersound OriginsSM residents have the best of both worlds: abundant amenities in a well-designed, thoughtfully planned community surrounded by towering pines reaching the shores of Lake Powell … and the excitement and activities of legendary Highway 30-A only two miles south.


St. Joe’s long standing dedication to stewardship of the land is executed throughout the community from the natural landscaping with native plants to the reclaimed ground water utilized for landscaping needs.  In addition, a 5 mile trail has been added to the community to connect Walton and Bay County directly into the Panama City Conservation Park.
