LocationNorth Ocean Boulevard, Gulf Stream, Florida. This supremely private direct oceanfront estate is tucked away in the northern end of Gulf Stream, a prestigious barrier island hamlet prized for its Old Florida beauty and exceptional quality of life. Established as an exclusive winter resort in the 1920s, Gulf Stream preserves its special character through careful zoning and is served by a winding, tree-canopied stretch of Ocean Boulevard designated a Historic Scenic Highway. This peaceful community is home to private sporting clubs including the Addison Mizner-designed Gulf Stream Golf Club, The Little Club, and the Gulf Stream Bath & Tennis Club. In the heart of South Floridas Gold Coast, Gulf Stream is located just north of Delray Beach and mid-way between Palm Beach and Boca Raton, placing fine shopping, dining, and cultural attractions all close at hand.PropertySeaside serenity is found in this direct oceanfront paradise completely secluded by privacy hedges on all three sides, with a garden pathway along the sweeping lawns beckoning to the beach. Nestled into terraces in the lush tropical landscape, the Mid-Century Modern residence was built as the private home of developer Henry Pope, who transformed a portion of Gulf Streams former polo fields into a residential neighborhood. Beautiful stone from the mountains of North Carolina is used extensively in the construction of the residence and garden walls, all designed to harmonize with the natural setting. Hedges and garden walls shelter the gated pool terrace in its own tranquil oasis. The property would also be ideal for creating a new custom residence.ResidenceOpening to multiple outdoor living spaces in a thoughtfully planned layout, this one-of-a-kind residence comprises a total of 3,879 square feet with four bedrooms plus four full and two half baths, including the separate guest house and cabana.
