Bal Harbour Florida waterfront house

Bal Harbour Florida houses for sale


The majestic community of Bal Harbour is actually its own city located in Miami-Dade county, a city rich with historical significance for luxurious properties and magnificent architecture. Originally named Bay Harbour, the city was eventually renamed to pay tribute to the community's close proximity and easy access to both the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. In fact, the word "Bal" comes from fusing the two words of "Bay" and & "Atlantic". It is located on the barrier island of Miami Beach while just north of the community of Surfside.


Although Bal Harbour is a rather small city in acreage, it is filled with some of the most diverse and opulent real estate properties imaginable, homes considered perfect for residents of South Florida seeking an oceanside view. For these reasons, Bal Harbour is very highly regarded among the world's most avid real estate enthusiasts.


Located to the west of Collins Avenue and directly on Biscayne Bay are beautiful properties sitting on expansive plots of land with lush, tropical landscaping and homes built with an incredible amount of living space. It is not uncommon to find homes ranging up to 12,000 SF with 9 bedrooms and baths. Bal Harbour offers only a limited number of waterfront properties, but the opportunities to live inland also provide a similar level of high-end luxuries and amenities. Inland properties can reach up to 7,000 SF of living space including 7 individual bedrooms and baths.


Of impressive historical significance is the fact that Bal Harbour was one of the very first "planned" cities in all of South Florida. It was specifically designed to create a luxurious resort community, and as a result, the city adopted many bylaws and regulations to maintain this high quality lifestyle. Even though Bal Harbour has the look and feel of a very private and exclusive community, the city is uniquely situated very close to many other of Miami's hot spots, including Miami Beach, Hollywood, Surfside, Bay Harbour Islands, and Sunny Isles Beach. Bal Harbour's very convenient community port also provides easy access to Biscayne Bay for many of the residents boats and yachts docked comfortably on its white, sandy shores.
