Bay Colony is one of only a very few of Fort Lauderdale's gated residential neighborhoods. This exclusive upscale neighborhood encompasses a bit more than 1/3 of a square mile and is home to only about 114 private residences at this time.
The fortunate residents enjoy this; the only deepwater, gated, island community in eastern Broward County, and it is 1 of only 3 gated communities in Fort Lauderdale - the others being beautiful Sea Ranch Lakes on the east side of the Intracoastal Waterway in Lauderdale by the Sea and Harbourage Isle also on the east side of the Intracoastal near Port Everglades. This lovely and secure enclave is accessible only via the guard gate on the west end of the neighborhood, the balance of the community is surrounded by water. All of the homes in Bay Colony are on beautifully landscaped, private, tree lined streets and most offer deepwater dockage (No Fixed Bridges) at a minimum of 100’ of waterfrontage per lot. Ocean Access is via Hillsboro Inlet to the north or Port Everglades to the south. These homes offer plenty of deep water for large yacht dockage.
Residents in Bay Colony enjoy their elite lifestyle with complete relaxation and ultimate privacy as there is an armed guard posted at the entrance and exit of this private community 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
Conveniently located in north eastern Fort Lauderdale, just east of US 1 on Cypress Creek Road, Bay Colony is less than 1 mile from the beautiful beaches of Lauderdale by the Sea. Bay Colony is only a few moments from one of Fort Lauderdale’s premiere private schools; Pine Crest School which accommodates students from Pre K through 12, Westminister Academy and Saint Colemans Catholic School are also close by as are several other private and public schools. Grocery shopping, post office, places of worship and easy access to major highways make Bay Colony a perfect community for the discriminating, luxury buyer looking for the ultimate lifestyle of privacy and 24 hour security.
Although Bay Colony was largely developed during the 1970’s most of the majestic homes have been tastefully updated, or completely razed and reconstructed to suit the new owners. The Intracoastal waterway is the eastern border of the neighborhood and many of the Bay Colony homes offer soaring, picturesque views of the waterways.
We look forward to hearing from you to discuss making arrangements to preview some of the exclusive Bay Colony homes and see if this is the neighborhood you have been hoping to find.
