Share Article

These waterfront residences, set on a portion of famed radio and film star, Frances Langford’s estate, offer the largest condominium floorplans in Martin County, Florida and ability to berth vessels up to sixty feet. The one of a kind, 26-slip protected deepwater marina is one of the community’s most unique amenities along with state of the art hurricane protection that is well beyond standard.

Few people have the opportunity to meet a Hollywood legend, much less a chance to own a piece of real estate that once was home to one.

Outrigger Harbour is named from the famed radio star, film actress and singer, Frances Langford’s hotel and club, “Outrigger Resort,” now called the “Dolphin Bar” by locals. The ultra-luxurious marina residences and yacht club will be built on a portion of the beloved performer’s 400-acre estate and offer utmost in refined living. According to Outrigger Harbour developer, Jim Ladd, “By providing upwards of 4,000 square feet of living space per residence, this community presents by far, the most spacious condominium floor plans in Martin County. It is also a rare opportunity to own an Intracoastal home on a protected marina.”

This summer Outrigger Harbour will open the remaining presale construction on its prestigious Intracoastal marina address. With only a handful of luxury estate residences left on the market, only 20 people will own a piece of history.

With its ability to berth vessels up to sixty feet, the one of a kind, 26-slip protected deepwater marina is sure to be one of the community’s most unique amenities. The marina at Outrigger Harbour is a mere three miles to the St. Lucie Inlet, which is free of no-wake zones, providing swift ocean access.

A pool-cabana on a private peninsula in the Indian River Lagoon will also sit adjacent to the marina. But, the amenity that water lovers will cherish the most is the ability to acquire their own private boat slips. Another reason the exclusive marina is so appealing? It was that very same spot in the late 50’s that Frances Langford and her husband, Outboard Motor magnate Ralph Evinrude, moored their 108-foot yacht, The Chanticleer.

Those fortunate enough to purchase at Outrigger Harbour will also receive the most state of the art hurricane protection that meets or exceeds the highest hurricane code standards. Five private full-service generators will service the community providing more than enough power to support the twenty residences seamlessly. "We were all inconvenienced last time, so we just had the architects and mechanical engineers design a generator with the capacity to provide full service to every unit," said Ladd. Hurricane shutters will be a thing of the past for Outrigger Harbour owners, due to hurricane-impact glass and windows that surround each residence including oversized lanais and balconies.

Outrigger Harbour’s Intracoastal Marina Residences are nestled between the upscale community of Sewall's Point and picturesque Indian Riverside Park in Jensen Beach. Pre-construction prices range from $1.2 million to more than $2 million for these luxury residences scheduled for completion in January 2007.

Each of the community's 20 residences will share a private elevator and lobby with only one other residence. Lush landscaping and the finest quality accoutrements make Outrigger Harbour a veritable paradise hideaway for the most discriminating homeowner. While this secure, gated, maintenance-free community may be small in numbers, the beautifully designed residences reflecting Old-World style Mediterranean architecture are large and luxurious spanning up to 4,000 square feet and offer six unique floor plans.

Ladd says the quality of the construction at Outrigger Harbour is truly outstanding, with 13-inch floors between each residence to maximize privacy and acoustic intimacy. Granite countertops, crown moldings, 42-inch hardwood cabinetry and designer floor selections are standard throughout each residence. Coffered and vaulted ceilings also are an appreciated design feature at Outrigger Harbour, and the top-of-the-line appliance package will make life easier and more efficient for the whole family.

Each luxury residence comes standard with two-car enclosed ground-level parking, and those who like to entertain will appreciate the ample guest parking.
