The Hamptons Has Flown South and arrived at Southwest Ranches
Southwest Ranches Fla., is THE value proposition for ultra-high-net-worth people
As pricing continues to rise and inventory remains low across South Florida, high ticket buyers are looking beyond the intracoastal and usual ultra-luxury zip codes, while staying within reach of the important metro hubs of Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Boca. It's a trend that's turning suburban heavens like Southwest Ranches into Hamptons-style hideaways.
The Town of Southwest Ranches, a low-density, quaint equestrian community in Broward County is a favorite hideaway for sophisticated, in-the-known estate level property hunters.
Sales in Southwest Ranches have heated up as the area gains traction with high-net-worth buyers looking for privacy, value, acreage and world-class estates within the regions remaining farmland. Homes, custom made on order, rarely hit the market in the town, shielding prices from the public. But recently, custom-made estate 11 acres, built by Landmark Custom Homes, hit the market there at $54 million, demonstrating the area's unprecedented price growth.
Landmark Custom Homes, the area's leading luxury home builder, is behind most of these prominent estates, and offers turn-key building services via bespoke architectural designs from world class firms including Affiniti Architects of Palm Beach, Choeff Levy Fischman and CMA Design Studios in Miami. Landmark Ranch Estates is composed of just 44 estate sites, ranging from 2 to 5 acres. Now, just five custom estate home sites remain available, with estate designs ranging in price from $8 million to over $30 million.
Residents of Landmark Ranch Estates, the most prominent luxury estate community in Southwest Ranches have included "A list" Hollywood celebrities and top tier athletes as well as entrepreneurs and C-suite execs from varied business sectors.
"Southwest Ranches represents an unparalleled value proposition for ultra-high-net-worth people," says Douglas Elliman's Miguel Serrano, noting that the area is close to the region's two most used executive airports: Ft Lauderdale Executive and Opa Locka Executive. "It's like a Hamptons lifestyle in an almost unknown, secret location, and thanks to strict preservation rules that prevents future over-development it's going to stay that way. The town's informal motto is 'The pavement stops here!'"
"A community like this can never be created again in Southwest Ranches," says Rick Bell, owner of Landmark Custom Homes, who envisioned this area as one of the last bastions of rolling acreage in the whole tri-county area, buying some 150 acres nearly two decades ago prior to the town's incorporation.
