Eleuthera Drive, Ocean Ridge, Florida. One of the Gold Coast's best-kept secrets, the exclusive hamlet of Ocean Ridge is prized for its quiet solitude, relaxed ambiance, and unspoiled island-like landscape nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. The convenient location of Ocean Ridge is within easy driving distance of Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and Palm Beach, all offering a wide range of fine shopping, dining, and entertainment. Ocean Ridge is only a 20-minute drive from Palm Beach International Airport.
In a tropical island setting on a quiet cul-de-sac, a leisurely stroll from the beach, this beautiful Mediterranean-style estate stretches across 144 feet of deepwater shoreline commanding wide views overlooking the canal to the Intracoastal Waterway. The seawalled waterfront is served by a substantial 80-foot yacht dock with 10-ton boat lift and secondary jet ski lift. Highlighting the well-elevated grounds, a wraparound waterside loggia opens by the resort-style pool graced by a decorative brass dolphin fountain.
Serene waterfront scenery fills every room of this classically inspired residence built to high-end construction standards. An open floor-plan maximizes spaciousness and light in a total of 5,685 square feet offering four bedrooms, four and a-half baths, and a two-bay garage.
