This private, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2-car garage house sits directly on the sand dune overlooking the beach with unobstructed views. This is a premiere Ormond Beach oceanfront location with nothing but expensive homes on this 2 mile long section of the beach. There are no nearby condos to interfere with stargazing at night. Across the street is a private golf course. The limited public beach access points north and south afford a great deal of privacy. Picture yourself having a cup of coffee in the morning on the back patio catching the sunrise off the ocean watching dolphins play and you might even see northern right whales and humpback whales offshore during migration seasons. The moonrises off the ocean are even more spectacular, perfect for enjoying a glass of wine sitting in your own 5-person hot tub outside. Access the beach via your own private dune walkover with its own private sitting area and freshwater shower. Take long walks on the beach without having to worry about cars driving on this “no drive” section of beach to endanger your family. Try your hand at boogey boarding in the waves or try fishing in the surf.

Living on the beach was always a dream of mine. When i get off work as a busy cardiologist, the beach melts my stress away. It is incredibly peaceful living here. Ormond Beach has all of the amenities of a small city but there is an abundance of nature I enjoy including running on the beach, kayaking in the ocean and Tomoka river, fishing and mountain biking (yes I know there are no mountains in Florida but there are multiple scenic bike trails with varying levels of difficulty). This a great place to raise my family.
I bought my first house on this beach in 1995 and when the house next door went for sale in 1996 it was a once-in-lifetime opportunity. I have it fixed up real nice because I also use it to put up my family when they visit.
There is nothing more spectacular than the sunrises or moonrises off the ocean. I've seen giant sea turtles lay their eggs. Dolphin are plentiful but I've also seen northern right whales and humback whales. It is so peaceful here it seems like a desert island at times.
