Live in the lap of luxury from your upscale waterfront home
Gulf Stream is home to numerous luxury homes and properties that have made the town incredibly popular among professionals and families in search of the perfect beachfront getaway. Located halfway between Ocean Ridge and Delray Beach, Gulf Stream residents have access to some of Florida's best beaches as well as some of the region’s most popular amenities and attractions.
Gulf Stream was originally founded in the 1920s as a planned community centered around the Gulf Stream Golf Club. Today, this exclusive, tight-knit community enjoys the town’s peaceful residential ambiance, the abundance of magnificent beachfront homes, and relative seclusion from the hustle and bustle of nearby cities.
Properties in Gulf Stream are typically built in Spanish, coastal contemporary, or Key West architectural styles, although Mediterranean Revival has become increasingly popular in recent developments. With most homes enjoying unobstructed views of the water, and the limited condo buildings offering residents panoramic waterfront views, much of Gulf Stream’s appeal comes from its proximity to the beach and all the natural beauty that comes with it.
Gulf Stream is a small community of fewer than 1,000 residents. As such, the neighborhood is particularly close-knit, with neighbors often becoming close friends over the years. With many outdoor recreational attractions, including parks, a golf club, and boating on the brilliantly blue waters, Gulf Stream locals can usually be found outside enjoying the warm Florida weather. Thanks to the neighborhood's proximity to nearby cities, locals can also take a quick drive to some of the best restaurants and shops the state has to offer.
Although Gulf Stream is primarily a residential community, residents enjoy quick access to many of the nearby towns and cities’ best restaurants and entertainment venues. Ellie’s 50s Diner and Flamingo Ballroom offers nostalgia by the bucket load featuring checkered floors, vinyl chairs, and a typical diner comfort food menu. For those who prefer a classic gastropub menu, Driftwood in Boynton Beach is an undisputed favorite and offers freshly prepared meals alongside innovative handcrafted cocktails.
Beach lovers will also enjoy a visit to the Nomad Surf Shop, where surfers and swimmers can source custom-made surfboards and other watersports equipment.
Most Gulf Stream residents’ preferred activities revolve around the amenities offered by the Gulf Stream Golf Club. Established in 1924, the club’s magnificent course was designed by Donald Ross, while the clubhouse was constructed to follow Addison Milzner’s influential design and architectural styles. The club is popular among golf enthusiasts and families who wish to make use of the clubhouse’s dining options and tranquil atmosphere.
Should a different sport be in order, the Gulf Stream Bath and Tennis Club is another beloved local institution. Here, members can enjoy access to perfectly maintained tennis courts as well as a lovely onsite restaurant for a bite after a spirited match. In keeping with the social club-centric theme of Gulf Stream attractions and amenities, the Gulfstream Boat Club certainly can’t be missed by any potential residents interested in trying their hand at boating, fishing, and watersports without needing to own their own vessel.
Although the neighborhood itself is only home to one school, the Gulf Stream School serving Pre-K and K to Grade 8 students, there are many equally well-rated schools in the surrounding neighborhoods for residents to take advantage of, including:
