Golden Beach Homes-Oceanfront or Intracoastal Living


There are oceanfront condo buyers in the market that really want very large living spaces.  What I have found for some of these buyers are that although the lifestyle and ease of living in a condo is most desirable, the space cannot fully accommodate their need for a large living area. A home in  Golden Beach is a great option.  Homes are available either directly on the ocean or directly on the intracoastal waterways.

Golden Beach is an oceanfront town that is 1.3 miles long and is in the northernmost portion of Miami.  It is composed of only 370 single family homes most of which are either on the intracoastal waterways or the ocean.  The city has their own police force and its own government including an elected mayor.  As you drive along Ocean Blvd. you know immediately that you are driving through Golden Beach.  The city is in its final stages of renovation which included the installation of magnificent Royal Palms all along Ocean Blvd.  The renovation also included the burying all electrical wires underground, revamping the few parks, and renovating all the community bridges.

Real Estate opportunities in Golden Beach run the spectrum.  You can buy one of the most magnificent homes in South Florida situated directly on the ocean for anywhere from $9 million to $18 million. There are also two oceanfront lots on the market starting at $3.5 million.  These lots were at one time offered for double the price. Prices are comparable to specific communities in Miami Beach or Fort Lauderdale.

There are more moderately priced homes built in the 90’s and homes from the 1950’s that have been renovated keeping the period charm. There are projects to embrace as well.  A 1947 tear down is on the market for $565,000.

If ultra-modern is your taste there are a few homes that fit that style.  There is a brand new 5500 square foot home on the intracoastal waterway with white glass flooring and every modern minimalist design feature available.

The location of Golden Beach is ideal. Minutes from Miami Beach shopping and fine restaurants, minutes from the Fort Lauderdale Airport, and Aventura.  This is a very unique City with great real estate options in a great location !
