Delray Beach, Florida
This loft-style condo in downtown Delray Beach was built in 2006.
With floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed concrete ceilings and ceramic-tile floors, the 1,018-square-foot condo has open living and sleeping areas, plus a bathroom with an oversize tile shower.
It has an industrial vibe but feels warm, says Andrea Volpe Jacobson, real estate agent with Re/Max Services in nearby Boca Raton.
The kitchen has granite counters and a breakfast bar. And the sunny nook off the kitchen can be used as a dining area or office, she says.
The west-facing balcony overlooks downtown, creating a great place to kick back and watch the sunset, says Jacobson.
The building has a trash chute, elevator, and a rooftop pool and patio. It's also one mile from the beach and just over a block from the Intracoastal Waterway, she says.
A little about Delray Beach
"Delray Beach is so special because it's very walkable," says Jacobson. With shops, cafes, restaurants and a grocery store, "everything is within a few blocks," says Jacobson. If you live downtown, "you really don't need a car," she adds.
The average home sale: $309,201, according to Realtor.com.
With a thriving community and great beaches, says Jacobson, "it really is a happy place."
