Boca Raton oceanfront gets an upscale refresh



While most of our customers have been searching for property in South Beach or Bal Harbour, a client recently requested that I preview two new luxury properties – One Thousand Ocean and Luxuria – both in Boca Raton. This past week I took a 45 minute drive north of South Beach to Palm Beach County. I had previewed One Thousand Ocean at its showroom when the building was still being built, so it was great to go back and see the finished product, and what a great finished product it is.

In fact, I was blown away by both buildings, but for very different reasons.


One Thousand Ocean


One Thousand Ocean has a sophisticated, but casual elegance about it, where owners can live a country-club lifestyle in a sleek ultra modern building. The horseshoe-shaped One Thousand Ocean is a private enclave at the end of a tiny peninsula that is surrounded by water on three sides, providing spectacular views from every angle. All owners receive full membership to the private Boca Raton Resort & Club, one of the worlds most prestigious and exclusive country clubs, which sits just across the Boca Inlet, and the Boca Raton Beach Club, which sits adjacent to the building and is part of the club.

The residences at One Thousand Ocean are very grand! Three bedrooms start at 3,000 sq. ft. with 650 sq. ft. of outdoor front and back terraces with private plunge pools and outdoor kitchens. Residences feature oversized rooms throughout, very top-of-the line kitchens and baths, and two fireplaces, among other things. Most of the 52 condos are flow through, so you will have double exposures, N/S, E/W, NW/SE – get the idea? There are only 12 residences remaining, along with 4 townhouse Beach Villas and a gorgeous penthouse.

This a perfect condo for the New Yorker, Bostonian, European and South American buyer who wants an exclusive country-club lifestyle without having to operate an entire house. With direct beach access, 8 pools between the building and its club neighbors, room service, in-room or club spa treatments, award winning golf courses, clay tennis courts, mega yacht marina, Club Boca’s children’s activity center, and five-star hotel and concierge services, One Thousand Ocean is about convenience, service, exclusivity, and peace and quiet, all at the same time.

Prices start at $2.6 million for a 2 bedroom in the only line that doesn’t face the ocean and $3.9 million for 3 bedrooms with direct ocean views.

A short drive south from One Thousand Ocean, you will find Luxuria on the Ocean, one of the very few new condos built directly on the ocean in Boca in a very long time. Luxuria is sophisticated in a different way than One Thousand Ocean. Luxuria is a Mediterranean Villa that has the feeling of an“estate residence.” Each of the 26 residences start at 4,500 sq. ft., with 4 bedrooms being smallest, so the apartments are very spacious and feature large terraces with outdoor kitchens.

Residences offer its residents direct ocean and inter-coastal views, seclusion and privacy that a well- heeled clientele desires. One feature that is offered by the developer is the option to select your own custom kitchen. Owners select the style (modern, traditional, etc.), color scheme and materials. By the time the unit is closed, the kitchens are built out. This is a great feature that allows an owner to put their style stamp on the property without having to manage the project of installing a new kitchen.

Like One Thousand Ocean, Luxuria owners have a full membership to the Boca Raton Resort & Club. The Club is only 2 miles away, so it is very close by.

Since the developer is down to its last 6 units and wants to move on to its next project, Aqualina II in Sunny Isles, some great discounts are being offered for this true luxury property. Reduced prices start at $3.6 million for 4,500 sq. ft. (which is a steal at $780 psf ($8,396 per sq. mt.), since recent closed prices are around $900 psf. (9,687 per sq. mt.)).

Boca Raton has a scarcity of oceanfront property due to the many national parks on the shore, so these two new projects on the Atlantic Ocean are definitely two of the best when the subject is Boca Raton Luxury Real Estate… very exclusive, since nothing new or this beautiful has been built on the ocean in Boca for many years.
