Welcome to Hillsboro
One of the truly spectacular locations in South Florida is the ocean to Intracoastal estates on the Hillsboro Mile. Many decades back, I used to spend winters there. Now those homes are owned by America's wealthiest. But it is not a high profile area like Miami Beach's Islands or the Palm Beach oceanfront estates.
But there on the one-mile strip of beautiful beach, there was a home listed by One Sotheby's for $140 million. It was had a reported $2.5m in gold leaf in the decorative molding and the first IMAX theater in a residence.
Just above "The Mile" is a lovely area on the ocean and Intracoastal at a fraction of the price of the big estates. This is Hillsboro Beach.
Officially known as the Town of Hillsboro Beach, this balmy tropical small-town community represents the ultimate in Old Florida charm with a touch of new modern architecture. Located in northeastern Broward County off the Atlantic Ocean, Hillsboro Beach is situated on the south end of Deerfield Beach Island. Positioned close to several vibrant towns, Hillsboro Beach is bordered on the north by Deerfield Beach, on the west by Lighthouse Point and to the south by Pompano Beach. Offering potential buyers the epitome of resort-style living, the residents of Hillsboro Beach can enjoy a stunningly beautiful beachfront with unspoiled sands, a plush members-only club and a wide range of water activities varying from snorkeling to jet skiing and boating.
Lined with one main road spanning 3.2 miles, known as Hillsboro Mile to locals, Hillsboro Beach offers a quaint but luxurious atmosphere that’s unlike any other destination in the region. Also commonly referred to as “Millionaires’ Mile” with a vast trove of grand mansions resting on oversized lots, potential property owners can find new a kaleidoscope of modern estates and Mediterranean-style villas that are simply spectacular and dawn outdoor rooms that are dressed in everything imaginable including sparkling swimming pools, spa-like Jacuzzis, fully equipped summer kitchens, ample lounging spaces and private dockage for the pro-yachtsman.
