Boca Islands Waterfront Homes
Boca Islands is a paradise for owners with smaller boats; unlike Royal Palm, Golden Harbour and The Sanctuary, Boca Islands offers numerous opportunities to purchase a waterfront home, with dockage and ocean access for less than $1,000,000. Located on the shores of the El Rio Canal, boaters are less than 30 minutes from Lake Boca and the ocean (though fixed bridges may restrict boat size). The neighborhood is just outside Boca’s downtown core, within walking distance to Boca Isles Park, neighborhood shopping, and many places of worship. Boca Islands Park is one of Boca’s classic “Pocket Parks,” which is a daily destination for many children living in the neighborhood and includes a playground and picnic facilities. For more adult fun, Boca Islands is a short drive from the Boca Beaches, shopping in Mizner Park, and dining in Royal Palm Place or Downtown Boca. The neighborhood is within walking distance to several neighborhood restaurants, gourmet food shopping at The Fresh Market, and numerous other conveniences.
The neighborhood itself is best described as quiet and quaint, with a variety of home styles and sizes. Many of the homes in Boca Islands are three or four bedroom, and exude old Florida charm. Others have been updated or even completely renovated to take advantage of the stellar location, and lower cost ocean access. Dry lot homes start in the mid $400,000s while homes with private docks often start in the $700,000s, and can stretch to nearly a million for a newer or updated estate. The recent trend has been to upgrade older homes with new kitchens and baths; many buyers have expanded homes with significant additions and created their Boca dream home. Choosing a home in Boca Islands gives buyers affordable waterfront homes, in a stellar location.
