Owning a beach property is everyone’s dream. The tranquility and peace that comes with living in an ocean-facing property is priceless. This is why more and more people are looking to buy beach properties today.
Fortunately for water lovers, the US is blessed with many natural water bodies. Homes built around these water bodies offer breathtaking views of the surrounding natural landscape. The most popular states for buying waterfront properties are Florida, California, South Carolina and Massachusetts.
Below is an overview of a few of the best places in the USA for investing in water view property.
Nantucket is a pristine island located south of Cape Cod, off the coast of Massachusetts. Its geographic diversity has made it one of the most popular destinations during the summer months. Its ocean views are among the best in the world, thanks to its sandy beaches and the surrounding rolling hills. This city retains many of its old world charms as well. The distinct flavor and cuisine of Nantucket makes it one of the best places to buy an oceanfront property in the US.
Lakeland is located between Tampa and Orlando and true to its name, it has 38 named lakes and many other unnamed water bodies within its city limits. Properties on these lakes offer the best of both worlds: they are away from the crowded areas and at the same time, they offer easy access to nearby shopping and dining areas. An interesting feature on all these lakes is the large number of swans. The first swans were believed to have migrated here during the 1920s and their population dwindled by the 1950s. The residents of Lakeland were believed to have sent a request to Queen Elizabeth, who in turn, sent two royal swans. The current swans on these lakes are descendants of Queen Elizabeth’s royal swans.
Santa Barbara, CA
Located on the beautiful Pacific coast, Santa Barbara is a mere 90-mile drive from the bustling Los Angeles. Its southern coast is known as the “American Riviera” because its beauty and landscape is similar to the French Riviera. The presence of the mighty Santa Ynez mountains is an added attraction to this city. Waterfront properties in this city have stunning views of these mountains on one side and ocean views of the Pacific on the other. Sunrises and sunsets are magnificent in Santa Barbara and this is yet another reason to buy a property here.
Kiawah Islands, SC
The Kiawah Islands are a sea island located south of Charleston in South Carolina. This island is a top destination today for golfing largely due to the popularity of the Kiawah Island Golf Resort. Other than this resort, the island abounds with spacious villas, world-class golf facilities and many water-based activities that are sure to entertain you all year round. A property on this island is a great way to enjoy the natural beauty and as well as the man-made golfing turfs.
Waterfront properties in these places come with their unique charm and lure. Living in these properties can be a truly exhilarating experience for anyone!
