1200 The Ocean is attracting vacation-home buyers from the northeast and Canada
- Jul. 3, 2014 - HILLSBORO BEACH, Fla. --
Of the luxury, boutique condominium’
s scant 18 buying opportunities, six were bought as vacation homes by people from Washington, DC; New York and Toronto. This was according to Caprice Weber, president of Baker Real Estate, exclusive sales agent at 1200 The Ocean, which has only 12 luxury three-bedroom residences remaining, priced from the $900s to $2.35 million.
“We’re not surprised that people from the mid-Atlantic and points north are looking to escape brutal winters with a beachside home in Florida,” Weber noted. “Not only are they enamored with the intimacy of this ‘boutique’
collection of residences, they are equally attracted to the very relaxed feel of this tiny seaside village. HillsboroBeach has absolutely no commerce of any kind, not even a school or stop light. It’s just three miles of residential, waterfront property, which many people prefer for a vacation home over the high energy of nearby Ft.Lauderdale.”
Weber added that 1200 The Ocean is the only new, “shovel ready” condominium property on the ocean in all of BrowardCounty;
a characteristic that is generating even more traffic than usual. She also noted that many people are drawn to the very contemporary architecture, unlike anything else in HillsboroBeach given that 1200 the Ocean is the only new construction along Hillsboro Mile in over 10 years. In fact, the overall architectural characteristics of the town are reminiscent of the 1960s and ‘70s.
All residences at 1200 The Ocean will feature three bedrooms, two and one-half baths and up to 3,000 sq. ft. Amenities will include private and semi-private elevators, volume ceilings, lavish baths, 24” x 24” glass tile flooring, impact-resistant glass doors and windows, expansive balconies, an oceanfront pool, a private beach, gated under-building parking and an Intracoastal day dock just steps away. Of special note are gourmet kitchens with Wolf/Sub-zero appliances, Italian cabinetry and granite countertops. Residents can take advantage of neighboring marinas and private clubs as well as shopping, dining, schools, entertainment and airports in Boca Raton and Ft.Lauderdale, with some of those amenities within walking or biking distance.
