Emmy winning producer, actor, philanthropist and former football player Matt Battaglia is selling Gulf of Mexico beach estate with Engel & Völkers for $6,995,000

517 Beachside Gardens, Carillon Beach, FL 32413

The real estate market along 30A is flourishing. Investors are keeping a close eye on the entire region, as the value of houses keeps increasing thanks to renewed interest in vacation houses.

Engel & Völkers today announced its representation of Emmy winning producer, actor, philanthropist and former football player Matt Battaglia in the listing of his beachfront estate at 517 Beachside Gardens, Carillon Beach. License Partner and Private Office advisor, Beau Blankenship is the listing agent.

“I chose to work with Beau because of his successful track record in the market,” said Battaglia. “Beau’s expertise paired with the leverage of Engel & Völkers’ international network and extensive marketing made choosing the representation of my property a no-brainer.”

The newly built home offers eight-bedrooms and 10-bathrooms spanning 6,096-square-feet, in addition to a private pool. The estate features 140-feet of private beach frontage, almost triple that of the average waterfront home along 30A, as well as 60-feet of interior gulf-front views compared to the average 35 feet. Located inside a gated community, the listing also comes equipped with five communal pools, tennis courts, 12-acre lake and private, security patrolled beach. Listed at $6,995,000, the property offers a projected annual rental income of over $400,000 and is currently appraised at $8,400,000.

“It is an honor and privilege to represent both Matt and his exquisite property,” said Blankenship. “Offering unique opportunities as both an investment or legacy property, this Gulf-front home appeals to a wide audience of investors and end users. I plan to strategically utilize Engel & Völkers’ extensive network to connect with our feeder markets from around the world to find the right buyer for this home.”

Battaglia purchased the land in September of 2015 with intentions to build a retirement home for he and his wife. Construction of the home completed in March 2019, but ultimately Battaglia decided to keep his primary residency in California.

"The real estate market along 30A is flourishing,” said Blankenship. “Investors are keeping a close eye on the entire region, as the value of houses keeps increasing thanks to renewed interest in vacation houses. Northwest Florida offers year-round warm weather, close proximity to the water, a vibrant tourist scene and numerous attractions — a perfect combination.”

Battaglia is an Emmy winning producer, has co-produced a two-time Golden Globe nominated film and has been an actor in nearly 100 films, network pilots and television shows. He is best known for his roles in “Friends,” “Thor,” and “True Detective.” He is currently starring alongside Nick Nolte, Josh Hartnett and Barbara Hershey in Paramount’s new television series, “Paradise Lost” due out in 2020. Prior to entering the entertainment industry, Battaglia was an All-American football player at the University of Louisville and went on to play professionally with the Philadelphia Eagles. Battaglia is also an avid philanthropist, having created The Mint Jubilee, a celebrity driven charity event at the Kentucky Derby, which has raised millions of dollars for cancer patients.
