A Realm Unto Itself
By W.A. Muller
Palm Beach Gardens is known as one of the most exclusive communities in Florida and one might argue, the United States. With its access to prime beachfront, array of fine dining establishments and premier golfing options, the destination is a playground for the rich and influential.
Yet there is one development that stands head-and-shoulders above the rest. The name, of course, is Old Palm Golf Club. Here, in the home of the PGA of America and the Honda Classic, is a sophisticated community with fine dining, cultural attractions and nearby world-class shopping. Members of Old Palm, enjoy all the elegance, glamour and amenities of Worth Avenue.
Old Palm is only six miles from the Atlantic, where one can enjoy the beach, great diving, snorkeling, boating and rowing. There are several opportunities for outdoor family fun. In nearby Jupiter Beach, there is an area where dogs are allowed to romp around in the sand and waves.
With light traffic, beautiful homes, theater, world-class museums and art galleries, plus fine schools and convenient access to major arteries and West Old Palm Beach International Airport and the North County General Aviation Airport, Palm Golf Club is an ideal place for a life well lived.
With a range of ultra-luxurious custom estate homes from the elegantly simple to the simply elegant, Old Palm Golf Club offers gracious new homes in harmony with their surroundings, all with exceptional amenities and offering views of the golf course, water features or preserves. One of these luxury estates is sure to suit your needs.
According to Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales for the development, the community is "one of the finest, low-density neighborhoods in all of South Florida. The developers owned one square mile – 651 acres – and they only developed that into 360 homes. We have some of the largest lots in the area; typically a developer would have squeezed over 1000 homes onto the same amount of land." One of the biggest advantages – and one that has lured many buyers – is the no tee-time policy for their exclusive golf course. And in addition to that, the level of service for each homeowner is extraordinary.
We would be remiss if we didn't offer a word on the developer – Clarion Partners. They have been a leading U.S. real estate investment manager for almost 30 years. Headquartered in New York the firm has offices in major markets throughout the U.S. as well as a presence in Mexico and Brazil.
Homes start at 3400 square feet at $1.3 million and range to over 15,000 square feet at over $12 million.
