Located between the tranquil Intracoastal Waterway and the majestic Atlantic Ocean, Golden Beach town is surrounded by natural wonders. No wonder celebrities like Bill Gates, Paul Newman, Benjamin Rose and Ricky Martin have properties here. Since 1929, it has been one of the most sought-after places to live in South Florida. Among the most sough-after properties here are the Golden Beach waterfront homes.
Different types of Golden Beach Waterfront Homes
Though the general notion of Golden Beach waterfront homes is of a beachfront one, there are many forms. The difference in the type of waterfront view has evident implications on the price.
Ocean-front homes: This type of real estate is the most luxurious and exclusive. This is prime real estate and found only in small residential pockets. These and Altos del Mar along the south of surfside have the classiest and the most expensive properties. Elsewhere you can find condos as oceanfront real estate.
Bay-front: These are considered the second best type of waterfront real estate. These houses have an open bay view and a lot of privacy. One has the advantage of no rear neighbor and beautiful bay view from the backyard. The only consideration is the lack of protection from an occasional rise in the level of the ocean. With appropriate weather preventive measures, high-quality construction and insurance, one can enjoy living in these houses.
Canal-front: Houses with canal views differ in their prices because of the difference in the type, size and location of canals. The different types of canals, such as wide or narrow ones, offer different home locations. Many canals have good depth with private docks and ocean access as well as the capacity to accommodate anything from small boats to big yachts. However, some have dead ends which collect unwanted wreckage. This brings out differences in the privacy, navigability, and ocean accessibility. Hence, there is a difference in prices.
