A true Gold Coast Gem, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is nestled on a beautiful barrier island between the Atlantic Ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway, just east of Fort Lauderdale. Through careful planning, this charming seaside community has preserved its unspoiled setting in a relaxed atmosphere reminiscent of the Florida Keys. Quaint Pelican Square serves as its centerpiece in a lovely village setting amid brick sidewalks, antique-style streetlamps, lush landscaping, and an oceanfront observation pier. Here, there are wonderful boutiques and specialty shops in addition to dining options ranging from casual bistros to elegant gourmet restaurants.
Caressed by the gentle trade winds, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea is blessed with an abundance of exquisite golden-sand beaches. The surrounding waters offer superb snorkeling and scuba diving with a coral reef just 100 yards offshore, teeming with colorful fish and other marine life.
Lauderdale-by-the-Sea luxury real estate features direct oceanfront estates as well as waterfront estates on the Intracoastal, with a select few presiding over point properties affording panoramic views. Some Lauderdale-by-the-Sea luxury homes for sale front inland waterways offering protected dockage.
Another option for Lauderdale-by-the-Sea real estate is provided by the community’s beautiful townhomes and condominiums. Directly fronting 400+/- feet on the palm-fringed beach, Oriana-by-the-Sea exudes the romantic charm of the Mediterranean seaside in an intimate gated enclave of just 34 residences centered on an oceanfront courtyard pool. A luxurious fitness center is another amenity. The wonderful location is within walking distance of beachfront resorts, restaurants, and shops.
