Built in 2008, the building possesses a fresh, new feeling and caters to dog-lovers by allowing canine companions of all sizes.

Nothing compares to watching the sunrise or sunset while walking the dog along the golden beaches washed smooth by the ocean waves.

A Private Getaway among Oceanside Castles

Hillsboro Mile is known as Millionaires Mile (click here to read why millionaires love Hillsboro Mile) because of all the high-end homes gracing its pristine beaches.The homes are so expansive and opulent; they’re more like oceanside castles than traditional residences.

1200 Hillsboro Beach is located just north of those seaside palaces and possesses a grandeur all its own.

Add onto that covered parking and 24-hour concierge service and these waterfront condos cater to their residents’ every need.

All the Perks of New Construction

While other waterfront condos in the surrounding areas are located in older buildings, 1200 Hillsboro Mile is practically new with its 2008 construction completion date.

Units in other buildings, even if totally refurbished, are still in an older building and subject to all the potential issues that come along with less-recent construction.

Condos in 1200 Hillsboro Mile are move-in ready and offer a maintenance-free lifestyle which is perfect for anyone coming from a larger home or those retiring/moving to Florida seeking an easier way of living.

These units are such gems among the area real estate that listing real estate agent, Nita Summers says residents are lucky to live in one of “very few buildings that are as new as 1200.”

Ultimate Luxury without Towering Height

The bright, sunny skies of south Florida are breathtaking to behold but residents don’t have to live in a building that towers into the clouds to take full advantage of the ocean views.

1200 Hillsboro Mile is a quiet, serene property that only stands at three stories tall. There are two three-story buildings, one with Intracoastal Waterway views and one right on the beach and both offer a secluded, island-style escape from the hectic atmosphere of other oceanfront condos in surrounding regions.

Seagate Hotel: Historical Beachfront Real Estate Turned Getaway

seagate-hotel-beachfront-real-estateBeachfront breezes meet city sophistication at the Seagate Hotel & Spa in Delray Beach. The hotel’s Seagate Beach Club is an exquisite example of one of south Florida’s prime beachfront real estate properties successfully transformed into a luxury getaway.

Both the hotel and the club are a large part of the area’s history and an iconic symbol of the best that Delray Beach has to offer.

Distinguished Charm and History

The Seagate Beach Club was originally built as a private home on South Ocean Boulevard in 1935. By the late 1930’s, the home had been converted into a club.

The beach club and hotel across the street were unified in the 1950’s. The original Seagate Hotel was eventually moved to a new site on Atlantic Avenue and reopened and the new Beach Club and Seagate Residences replaced the remainder of the original property.

World-class Architecture and Design

Award-winning Randall Stofft was the architect for the new Seagate Beach Club. His exemplary artistry, respect for history and Frank Lloyd Wright influence gives this beachfront real estate a timeless, coastal feel.

The interior design of the Beach Club was the work of Hirsch Bedner who is renowned for setting fresh standards for innovation, luxury and comfort in hospitality interior design.

The world-class craftsmanship of architect and interior designer is visible throughout the property.

A bright white exterior of the club shimmers like a jewel among the endless ocean views. Inside there’s an elegant upper-level dining area and a beach-level dining room with terrace.

Guests enjoy fine dining, comfortable surroundings and gaze at the clear ocean waters beyond the club’s sparkling pool. Along with swimming, club activities include rentals of cabanas and water recreation rentals such as kayaks and paddleboards.

Sophistication and Luxury Amenities

The Seagate Hotel & Spa has an ideal beachfront real estate location on Atlantic Avenue and sophisticated accommodations.

Large salt-water aquariums greet guests in the lobby adding to the hotel’s contemporary beachfront style.

Standard rooms feature the luxury amenities of a private balcony, king size bed and marble bath.

For newlyweds, the Bridal Suite has a luxury spa room and pool view.

Those needing spacious accommodations lose themselves in the lavish appointments of the Presidential Suite with two bedrooms, full kitchen, rainforest shower, marble bath and expansive balcony with a breathtaking view of the Intracoastal Waterway.

Unique Events at Seagate

Members of the Seagate Club are treated to an Annual Members party on the first Wednesday of December. The party is one of the establishment’s most popular events.

For hotel guests and members there’s a 4th of July celebration with a premium view of the holiday fireworks.

The Seagate Hotel is a perfect location to hold events like conferences and weddings. It was featured in The Knot best of weddings list two years in a row.

Destination for Famous Faces

Through the years, Seagate has been the chosen destination for famous names. Adam Sandler’s family had a membership, David Spade’s grandparents were members and he’d often dine with them and Olympia Dukakis has graced the hotel with her presence. Martha Stewart gave a lecture to the Beach Club women and Broadway actress Zoe Coldwell indulged in an annual stay with her husband.

One visit to the historic beachfront real estate of Seagate and visitors make it a repeat Delray Beach destination.

Why Luxury Condos Are Selling Well Today

luxury-condos-waterfront-south-florida

Luxury condos and ultra-luxury, single family homes for sale today are seeing some of the healthiest market conditions America has had in about 5 years. Two years ago there was an enormous amount of inventory available and just earlier this year there was not enough. Today, this has changed.

Recent reports show that there is a healthy balance right now–it’s both a luxury buyer and luxury seller’s market!

Why Luxury Home Absorption Rates Are Increasing

When the market was poor, luxury owners were taking their homes off the market because they were not selling.  But now all the inventory that was abundantly available has sold off and luxury owners are putting their homes back on the market.

Banks also see this rate increase as a good indicator to sell and are putting foreclosures back on the market.

3 Contributing Factors Affecting South Florida:

1. Baby Boomers are actively seeking retirement opportunities in Florida, especially those from the North East and Canada.

2. There has been an increase of international buyers seeking opportunities to invest. Continents like Europe, South America and Asia have growing middle and upper class populations who see South Florida as more affordable with a higher quality of living.

3. Local buyers, traditionally, have always contributed to the luxury absorption rate.  Normally, they relocate to the Palm Beach area from Miami.

Why South Florida Is A Great Place To Invest Now

With the national, luxury buyer and seller’s market at it’s healthiest, South Florida provides an additional investment opportunity.

With great weather and some of the world’s most sought after waterfront properties, real estate in South Florida is premium. Real estate in South Florida recovers quickly when it comes to supply and demand because of this.

South Florida also has less land available (making prices higher and investments safer), no state income taxes, and major and international airports.

Though Florida is popular for vacation and second homes for luxury buyers, more people are moving here to stay.

In Boca Raton the real estate market is seasonal. Starting in late October and on through May more properties will come on to the market as the Florida snowbirds and vacationers return.

This Fall will be a very good time to keep an eye out for what becomes available.

Whether you are considering a permanent home, vacation home or second home, now is the time and there is no other place like South Florida to invest!

What Happens If I Don’t Buy Or Sell Now?

Prices of homes on the market will continue to rise and  sellers will be able to afford to hold on to their homes until they get the offer they want.

If sellers wait too long, holding costs, mortgages and taxes will continue to add up. Condo maintenance fees or country club fees will also continue to be a payment.

Buyers lose their buying power when they wait too long as interest rates and prices go up.

If you pass up this opportune time you may have the option to buy distressed properties and renovate them.  We’ve seen some luxury buyers tear down and rebuild homes on desirable properties along the Intracoastal Waterway.

One of our recent luxury buyers purchased two homes adjacent to one another and tore them down to create one larger home on extended property.

If you miss out on waterfront properties, another option will be properties in areas like Downtown Delray Beach or Downtown Boca Raton which are close to the ocean but not directly on it.

We’re seeing more luxury buildings being built in these downtown areas due to the lack of land available for new buildings on the water.

In the near future there will likely be an increase in luxury buyers purchasing adjoining luxury apartments and renovating them to one large luxury condo.

Why A Good Real Estate Agent Makes A Difference

Real estate is much like the stock market: the market and the buyers tell us what to sell a home for.

A good Real Estate Agent who specializes in luxury homes can be your best friend during these prime times to buy and sell.

Pricing or making an offer on a listing can be a very emotional experience for the seller or buyer, but an agent lives and breaths market data.

Therefore, he or she can help walk a homeowner / homebuyer through that process with great insight.
