Notable & Unique: Real Estate

Do you like a coastal setting? If so, this neighborhood may be to your liking. The S Ocean Blvd / Lake Worth Bridge neighborhood is on the ocean, a bay, or inlet. Often such coastal places have amenities and recreational activities on the waterfront that are attractive to residents and visitors alike. In addition to being coastal, S Ocean Blvd / Lake Worth Bridge is a very nautical neighborhood, meaning that it is somewhat historic, walkable, densely populated and on the water.

In addition, the S Ocean Blvd / Lake Worth Bridge neighborhood is very unique in that it has one of the highest proportions of one, two, or no bedroom real estate of any neighborhood in America.
