Downtown Delray Beach: More Than Worth the Stay
Delray Beach is the perfect blend of lazy beach days and vibrant nightlife, with a dash of afternoon adventures on the side. Known as Florida’s “Village by the Sea”, this quaint city of 60,500 possesses an unparalleled magnetic quality that has attracted residents from around the world.
This is a lifestyle that sports Panama hats sold by individually and locally owned beachside shops, and where everything worth seeing is a charming walk away.
The Seaside Village With an Edge
While Florida boasts of several hip towns containing both urban centers and beaches, Delray Beach’s unique history and urban planning make this city stand far before the rest.
Florida experienced a huge land boom in the 1920s that set the stage for a massive influx of construction prospectors and homeowners hungry for a slice of Florida sun. This prompted undesirable suburban sprawl away from downtown amenities and the growth of view-blocking, oceanfront high-rises.
However, thanks to progressive thinking decades ago, Delray Beach never went down such a path. Mandates prevented the construction of aggressive high-rises and commerce was channeled to the famed Downtown Delray Beach Atlantic Avenue. This avenue sweeps from the beaches, across the Intracoastal Waterway, and pushes several blocks westward.
Lining its sidewalks is a living, breathing downtown, with an array of neighboring real estate. When it comes to selecting the most desirable properties, residents want to know where they can live near the water, while still be able to walk to Atlantic Avenue. After all, this defines a walker’s paradise town.
The variety of desirable walkable properties is staggering. Intracoastal condominiums and townhomes are tucked on either side of this water-thruway, and the beach itself is lined with multi-million dollar waterfront estates featuring Mediterranean Revival mansions neighboring classic 1950s beach bungalows. Many townhomes can be found above and adjacent to the classic restaurants and hip boutiques that line and surround Atlantic Avenue.
Today, Delray Beach is a decisive buyer’s market, with a steady inflow of affluent and mobile young professionals eager to cash in on the hot housing market and the booming South Florida economy.
Not Your Average American Beach Town
The perfect blend of a booming economy and attractive amenities make the city an all-around “powerhouse” of American destinations. Delray Beach was named one of America’s best small towns by USA Today, claiming the title of “Most Fun”.
Residents and visitors can begin the day combing the shore for sea turtles beforesnorkeling around some of the East Coast’s most visible waters. In the afternoon, grab a bite at one of the city’s over one hundred premier restaurants and an evening martini at a funky local’s bar.
Here are some of our favorite Downtown Delray Beach places and activities:

In 1973 in an agricultural section of Delray Beach, FL a restful Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home was built on a scenic and private equestrian getaway of 60 beautiful rolling acres.
60 Acres Of Privacy Only 8 Miles From The Ocean
On this secluded 60 acres surrounding a lake, Windspirit Preserve’s original owners enjoyed their solace regularly, yet also were only 20 minutes to the shore.
Windspirit, for them, was the best of all worlds when it came to serenity, vast equestrian land, ocean shores, culture and entertainment.
A Peaceful Sanctuary In A Growing Beachfront City
The city of Delray Beach continued to develop around Windspirit Preserve as this quiet place was nurtured by its owners and peacefully grazed by over a dozen content horses.
By 1990 the equestrian community in Boca Raton and Delray Beach had grown in popularity, but with restrictions by the city on new development, estate homes from even 5 to 12 acres of land were hard to come by.
A new and fortunate homeowner looking for a place of simplicity, elegance and privacy in Delray Beach discovered their dream home through Windspirit Preserve.
A favorite pastime of the new homeowners became long walks along the sanctuary of their private lake and relaxing in their gazebo over the water.
Immaculate Details Inside And Out
Windspirit’s new owners poured their heart into enhancing this Frank Lloyd Wright inspired home with new features and updates that complimented every room and outdoor feature with luxury and comfort. They also planted much vegetation to grace the lawns surrounding the home.
From almost every room there is a view of carefully cultivated orchard trees, fruit trees, and rolling land, or paddocks with grazing horses.
The highly detailed, crystal clear outdoor pool and patio are perfect for family gatherings and entertaining friends in a picturesque and lush setting.
Culture and Entertainment Of South Florida
Just a short ride away from Delray Beach’s equestrian and agricultural land is Atlantic Avenue where people from all over enjoy fine dining, art exhibits, boutique shopping, live entertainment and miles of downtown walking along the Atlantic Ocean.
Nearby is also the affluent city of Boca Raton with its pockets of upscale shopping, performing arts centers and unique dining experiences.
A Thriving Equestrian Community In South Florida
Local equestrian enthusiasts enjoy the Palm Beach Polo Club and the annual Winter Equestrian Festival–the world’s largest, and longest-running equestrian competition!
Luxurious equestrian communities of estate homes surround Windspirit Preserve. Notable communities include Horseshoe Acres and Tierra Del Rey, proving that the area truly accommodates discerning equestrians.

Windspirit Preserve epitomizes a luxury retreat in the heart of Delray Beach, FL. Rarely will you find such a warm and inviting ultra-luxury estate home on so many acres with equestrian facilities, a private lake, and complete convenience to all that a richly cultural beachside city has to offer.

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.
A Special Perk For Manalapan Residents
As if anyone would ever want to leave 1960 South Ocean Boulevard, all Manalapan residents have the privilege of membership to the private ultra-luxurious La Coquille Club with absolutely no dues.
This world class, historical hotel is said to have exquisite dining, breathtaking views (a common theme in Manalapan) and sublime events.
Also, relaxation by the pool, a round of tennis and a friendly game of golf can be had year round with Florida’s great weather.
Manalapan: A Perfectly Situated Town
Manalapan, FL is convenient to Palm Beach, Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. Each area offers a unique mixture of culture, the arts, upscale shopping, dining and entertainment.
Living near the water in South Florida also means easy access to the Carribean Islands (Paradisio Del Mar is only 3-4 hours by motor yacht to tropical getaways like Little Bahama Bank).
South Florida: Comprehensive Lifestyle With An Ocean View
If you’ve been seeking luxury homes with waterfront living, South Florida is arguably one of the best choices there is.
Whether it’s serenity and security, an ultra-luxury lifestyle, terrific boating, or a simple relaxing walk along the water at sunrise, there is something here just for you.
