Tropical Drive, a private beach-area road in Ocean Ridge, Florida. One of the Gold Coast’s best-kept secrets, the exclusive hamlet of Ocean Ridge is prized for its tranquility, relaxed ambiance, and unspoiled barrier island beauty nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway. Ocean Ridge is conveniently located within easy driving distance of Delray Beach, Boca Raton, and Palm Beach, all offering fine shopping, dining, and entertainment. Palm Beach International Airport is just a 20±-minute drive from Ocean Ridge.
345 feet from the beach! 19 Tropical Drive is located east of Ocean Boulevard (A1A), has deeded beach access from a secluded street, and a slight view of the Atlantic Ocean.
When complete in January 2017, Frank McKinney’s first Micro Mansion concept home will feature an ocean view and ultra-high-end finishes in an ultra-modern design. Unique amenities include a 650 sq. ft. master bedroom suite with azure-blue glass vanity tops and a second floor glass shower with trees reaching into it, extremely rare sea-glass kitchen countertops, a dining table crafted from a single piece of driftwood, a sun deck floating between two pools + a wading pool, numerous illuminated water walls, and exotic tropical foliage, among other extraordinarily artistic features.
About Frank McKinney
Frank McKinney is a real estate artist, five-time bestselling author in four genres, philanthro-capitalist, ultra-marathoner, actor and visionary who sees opportunities and creates markets where none existed before.
Always one to challenge conventional thinking, McKinney, with his signature rock star long blond hair, attended four high schools in four years, after being asked to leave the first three, and earned his high school diploma with a less-than-stellar 1.8 GPA. Then, with $50 in his pocket and without the benefit of further education, he left his native Indiana for Florida in search of his life’s calling. It all started many years ago with a $50,000 fixer-upper home.
Since selling his first $2.2 million oceanfront spec home, he has created and sold 41 oceanfront properties with an average selling price of $14+ million.
McKinney recently in a Wall Street Journal feature on his Micro Mansion: “I’ve dominated the high-end speculative real estate marketplace for over 25 years and I’ve witnessed the evolution of the high-end buyer. It’s been dramatic. They desire artistry, luxury, quality and leading edge technology yet now want it in a much smaller and more manageable home. This exclusive Micro Mansion will have the $4,000 per square foot finishes, yet will need only 4,000 square feet, not 40,000, to showcase the artistry that distinguishes this home from all others.” – Frank McKinney.
