Located 200 yards from the peaceful beaches of Ocean Ridge, classic Bermuda Bungalow invites coastal living with 100 feet of deeded beach access. Built in the 1950’s by Belford Shoumate, famed Palm Beach architect known for his work with J. Urban of Mar-a -Lago and the 1939 World’s Fair, the historic charmer welcomes you through an award winning tropical garden with orchids and foxtail palms, leading past the Old Hollywood style pool. Cozy yet spacious, the four bedroom, three bath home exudes warmth with polished Dade County wood floors, vaulted ceiling of clear cypress, and working fireplace. Coastal charm within four houses of the ocean and private location in desirable east A1A neighborhood makes this a special place to relax and rewind within minutes of Downtown Delray and the Boynton Inlet. Adjacent lot is available for sale to make your cottage by the sea spectacular.
Situated between Lake Worth and Boynton Beach, Ocean Ridge is a coastal community originally founded by 13 families who seceded from neighboring Boynton Beach.
Ongoing restoration of eroding beaches, protection of sea turtles, and continued beautification of Ocean Ridge are its residents’ main concerns. Low-key, low-density and low-profile all characterize Ocean Ridge. Whether you stroll or bike along spectacular Old Ocean Boulevard, reminiscent of a quiet native Florida seashore path, drive through its tree-lined residential streets, or simply pass through Ocean Ridge on a scenic drive of A1A, you’ll note a beautifully landscaped, diverse seaside town.
