If you take A1A, which is also called Scenic Highway, north from Granada Avenue towards Flagler County line, for six and a half miles you will be watching the mixture of everything.Magnificent oceanfront homes on the beach, all type of houses on the west side of the road, mid- and high-rise condos on the ocean, rows of unpretentious midrise condos across street from the ocean… Then the beach narrows and there is nothing east of the road, but the ocean…And then you come to a 534-acre North Peninsula State Park, all structures end and you drive another nearly 3 miles with nothing but wildlife, the way Florida was hundreds of years ago…Kingston Shores condos is actually the last man made structure by the shoreline in Volusia County. Twelve 2-story buildings squeezed between the Intracoasta...

Aliki Atrium is an interesting building. Very unusual and so uncharacteristic for Andy Xepapas, the developer of all these condos, which bear the name of his beloved wife – Aliki. Tell me that real estate is not about love...Built in 1980, this 7-story building with units on 3 levels is a very private one with only 27 really spacious units. And, of course, the glass Atrium with glass elevator only adds to the ambience…One unit was sold in Aliki Atrium since January 1, 2015. And it was a crazy price paid for a 3-level unit with 3 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, which was sold in August of 2015 for only $270K. It was listed initially for $320K, so it was a $50K drop in price… wow.Just yesterday a Bank owned unit on the ground floor, a 2 bedroom on 2 levels went under contract and the asking p...
