Welcome to Coral Ridge
Convenience of location meets high-end luxury and waterfront homes
Along the west of the Intracoastal Waterway in Fort Lauderdale, Coral Ridge is an affluent neighborhood within walking distance of several parks, beaches, shops, and eateries. Homes set on the eastern side of the neighborhood, specifically east of Bayview Drive, can access the Atlantic Ocean directly via the waterways that dock up to their houses, and most homes can get to the Intracoastal Waterway with relative ease.
The neighborhood is mainly residential and even features its own yachting club. It’s one of Fort Lauderdale’s oldest and wealthiest neighborhoods, established in the 1940s and 50s. Coral Ridge has blossomed since then with the growth of Fort Lauderdale and is now surrounded by tons of advantageous commercial districts.
In Coral Ridge, you’re most likely to find elegant single-family homes tucked right next to multi-million dollar estates. Styles range from Spanish Revival-inspired and Mediterranean to minimalist contemporary new builds and vibrant townhouses in the Floridian style. Additionally, owners can opt to go for opulent condos and duplexes.
