Ocean Avenue, Ocean Ridge, Florida. One of the Gold Coast’s best-kept secrets, exclusive Ocean Ridge is prized for its quiet solitude, relaxed ambiance and unspoiled landscape nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway.
An Old Chicago brick-paved motor court, introduced by custom-built iron gates, creates a stately sense of arrival, and hidden by palms in the tropically landscaped backyard, the cedar loggia, embellished with precast stone columns, overlooks the resort-style heated pool and spillover spa set within an expansive marble sundeck adjacent to covered and uncovered marble patios. The built-in Wolfe grill and the summer kitchen, finished with a warming drawer, ice-maker and fridge, invite alfresco entertaining and family leisure time.
