Property description

Very Private & Charming tropically landscaped getaway home centrally located just off South Florida's Antique Row in West Palm and just minutes from the pristine beaches of the Atlantic Ocean in Palm Beach, the airport, downtown West Palm, Art Galleries, Worth Avenue, Golf, Deep Sea Fishing, Malls and Fine Restaurants etc.

This tastefully decorated house is very comfortable in every way and beautifully appointed. The modern kitchen is completely equipped. A magnificent dining table accomodates 10 should you desire to host dinner. Each bedroom is an oasis in itself. The lush landscaping is simply gorgeous. The salt water pool is to die for. The beautiful sandy beaches of the Atlantic are just minutes away.

El Cortijo is located just off Dixie south of Belvedere Road and north of Southern Boulevard and a short walk from the lake.

The airport is a mile west, the ocean is less than a mile east, and downtown/City Place is a mile to the north. Interstate 95 is nearby using either Southern or Belvedere. Flagler Museum is close by as is The Breakers and Norton Gallery, Palm Beach Zoo, Singer Island, Disney 2 hours away.

All in all a great location and oh so very private!
