Andrew Avenue, Delray Beach, Florida. Historic Delray Beach is a beautifully preserved oceanfront community in the heart of South Florida’s famed Gold Coast. Established in an exclusive island-side enclave, this ultra-luxe residence is one block from the pristine ocean beachfront and just a short distance from the eclectic shops, cafes and restaurants that line vibrant Atlantic Avenue.
An immediate impactful highlight, the verdant canopy of a commanding century-old Banyan Tree shades an oasis of tropical landscaping that can be enjoyed from the covered entry porch and hanging balcony of this magnificent island-inspired residence. Providing privacy in the back yard, lines of mature palms frame tropical pocket gardens, a huge pool deck, and a marvelous five-star-resort-like salt-water pool with a spill-over spa. A hidden gem, a bronze five-bowl Toucan Bird Fountain, set within a formal pocket garden, adds the mystique of the serene music and dazzling sparkle of cascading water.
