Ocean Ridge, Florida: One of the Gold Coast’s best-kept secrets, Ocean Ridge is prized for its tranquility, relaxed ambiance, and unspoiled barrier island beauty nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway.
Just steps from the ocean on a quiet one-way street with no public parking, a large pool with waterfall spa offers the quintessential Florida style of living on this beautifully landscaped gated-and-walled property. In addition to the three-car air-conditioned garage, this estate can accommodate off street parking for up to 12 cars.
Breezeways, terraces and balconies bring outdoor living indoors in this magnificent residence, which utilizes an open floor plan to maximize spaciousness and light. This architectural gem, with five bedrooms and 7,711 +/- total square feet, was designed by architect Randall Stoft to offer gorgeous ocean views. Details throughout include custom window treatments, impact glass windows and doors, 12-foot ceilings, custom moldings, and marble flooring. For easy outdoor entertaining on the ground floor, the 2,000-square-foot recreation room with ample storage space includes a kitchen and cabana bath that flows out to the pool area. On the second floor, off the foyer there are three spacious ensuite bedrooms, one with a balcony overlooking the pool area, and a guest half bath. The main entrance is embellished with a mosaic-marble-inlay floor and domed ceiling. The brightly lit library-media room provides a quiet place to read, enjoy a movie or entertain guests. The custom wood paneled elevator provides access to all three levels of this custom-built home. The open floorplan on the third floor includes a family room, kitchen, half bath, and the master suite.
The living and dining rooms feature artisan Venetian-plaster ceilings and both rooms feature French doors that open to a large ocean-view balcony with a gas fireplace. The gourmet kitchen is finished with custom wood cabinetry, granite counters, stone backsplash, professional-grade Viking appliances, with a cook’s island and snack bar. The adjacent breakfast area flows out to the family room, which features a cove ceiling, a bay window, and a French door that opens to a large sunset-view balcony. The master bedroom suite, with a sitting area overlooking ocean vistas, comprises a large walk-in closet and a marble-and-granite appointed bathroom fitted with dual sinks, custom-wood cabinetry, spa tub, glass-enclosed shower, and a separate water closet.
