South Ocean Boulevard, Delray Beach, Florida. Historic Delray Beach is a beautifully preserved oceanfront community in the heart of South Florida's famed Gold Coast. This ultraluxury residence, directly fronting 120'± of public ocean beachfront, is situated in a highly coveted location along A1A, midway between Linton and Atlantic Boulevards, just minutes from the eclectic shops, cafes and restaurants that line vibrant Atlantic Avenue. It is barely 10± minutes from Boca Raton's private executive airport, and an easy 25± minute commute to Palm Beach International Airport.
Truly an idyllic oasis, this gated walled property sits 19.5± feet above sea level on a manicured estate-sized lot of well over an acre, verdantly landscaped with privacy hedges, expansive no-maintenance turf, tropical shrubs, and coconut palms. The residence is set back from its 120± feet of direct Atlantic Ocean beachfront behind protective dunes evocative of The Hamptons. It is introduced by a serpentine drive of Tabby concrete leading to an auto plaza that provides ample guest parking, with additional parking under the porte cochere between the twin two-car garages.
The rear entertaining area is comprised of two glass enclosed air-conditioned pavilions. One connects the family room and the other connects the grand salon to the oceanside pool area via French nano doors (accordion fold sliders) that blur the line between indoor/outdoor living. The family room pavilion (pecky cypress ceiling, terazzo floor) has a built-in summer kitchen (Alfresco grill, Scotsman icemaker, mini fridge) for alfresco dining and conversation. Both pavilions open to a resort-style 30' x 60' heated saltwater pool with dual sun shelves. An expansive turf lawn beyond the pool area is framed with hedges that create a privacy barrier without obscuring the breath-taking panoramic ocean view.
