Breathtaking Views in South Florida
There’s nothing like ocean view living in South Florida. For those that live in luxury homes on the private and secure barrier island of Manalapan, FL, residents enjoy waterfront living at its best.
The sun rises over one side of the barrier island with amazing views of crystal blue waters in the Atlantic Ocean and it sets with rich hues of orange, red, pink, and purple over Lake Worth–Florida’s largest and safest part of the Intracoastal Waterway.
The Story Behind A Manalapan Paradise By The Sea
In the early 90’s a family started to build a spectacular mansion right in the heart of Manalapan, but due to family setbacks, the beautiful oceanfront property was let go and never lived in until purchased in the mid 90’s by the current homeowner.
The new homeowner, who was very passionate about the design and details, hired Architect Randall F. Keller, to completely renovate and expand the home. Marc Michaels, one of the top ten design firms, was also hired to meticulously design Paradisio del Mar to be what it is today.
Additions to the core home of Paradisio Del Mar were made to the South and North of the home site, making Paradisio Del Mar one of the Top 26 largest, privately owned homes by square footage in the U.S (amongst other properties on this list are Bill Gates’ estate in Washington and Donald Trump’s former mansion in Palm Beach, FL).
Connecting the beach side of Paradisio to the waterway is a private tunnel (one of only 10 in existence) that runs under Ocean Boulevard.
This tunnel was added to simply give the owner and his family a safe way to cross the street! The unique and rare feature adds to the mystique of this paradise by the sea.
The Best of Both Worlds: The Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway
Living in Manalapan on both the waterway and Atlantic Ocean makes it extremely convenient to for yachting and jet skiing.
The residents of Paradisio Del Mar and other nearby luxury homes can access the Atlantic Ocean in just 2 minutes from their private dock on the waterway.
Paradisio del Mar’s setting on the east side of Lake Worth, with the Intracoastal Waterway Channel on the west side of the lake, adds to the privacy and security of the estate. This prime location provides easy boating access and a very peaceful setting with spectacular sunsets over the water that are a perfect backdrop to any evening activity.
Entertainment With A View
Entertaining at Paradisio Del Mar has been the centerpiece of enjoyment for it’s homeowners–imagine cocktail hours at sunset, catered dinners, weddings, putting a private green, a private boardwalk leading to a guest cottage that rests on sand dunes, and an impressive billiard room all with spectacular views of a waterfront paradise.
