The Grand Estates at Old Palm Golf Club is red hot, and there is more to the robust sales than this being the middle of the season. For starters, precious few home sites remain in the Grand Estates and they are being snapped up quickly, in part because they are a half-acre in size. That gives homebuyers plenty of room for a 4,800 to 7,000-square-foot home, swimming pool, large outdoor kitchen, and an expansive back yard to enjoy the Florida lifestyle.
Sales have also been boosted by the generous selection of models in the Grand Estates. Although both completed models were recently purchased, five others are under construction or being designed to break ground shortly. Like every home in this neighborhood, the residences are beautifully situated on quiet cul-de-sacs and overlook private water features or Old Palmâs spectacular Raymond Floyd-designed golf course.
âThe Grand Estates is one of those special neighborhoods that instantly captures the imagination,â says Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales at Old Palm. âHomebuyers just love the possibilities that the abundant space offers, both indoors and outdoors. Each home has its own personality, yet they all share luxurious detailing, generous proportions and an air of elegance. If the amount of space fits your lifestyle, the homes are irresistible.â
Courchene Development Corporationâs 5,837-square-foot under-air Bentley model just sold, as did Hasey Constructionâs 5,665-square-foot under-air Castillo II. Both homes feature four bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, and overlook private water features. Courchene has another Bentley under construction and completion isnât far off. The home can be built on other available home site in the Grand Estates starting at $3,069,100.
Courchene also has two other models under construction. The 4,925-square-foot under-air Savoy will be completed first in the beginning of March. It features four bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths and a den, and has been thoughtfully designed to be light and airy throughout. The Savoy can be built on other available homesites starting from $2,584,410 and the furnished model is available at $3,395,000.
Then there is Courcheneâs magnificent Viceroy, a 5,403-square-foot under-air model with four bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths and a den. Its large back yard overlooks a private water feature. This Viceroy will be completed later this season so there is still time for a homebuyer to customize it to his or her liking. The Viceroy is priced starting at $2,701,410.
Haseyâs extraordinary Wedgewood model is now under construction. The two-story home sprawls over 6,725 square feet under air, so there is plenty of space for its four bedroom, five full baths, two half baths, family room, living room, club room and wine room. The balcony on the second floor provides a sweeping view of the 9th hole of the Old Palm golf course. The Wedgewood is priced at $3,875,000
Hasey also has a model called the Windsor in the early stages of design. The Windsor offers 5,318 square feet under air, with four bedrooms, five full baths and one half bath in a great room plan. The residence is sure to reflect the amenities that homebuyers desire most. There will be plenty of glass to bath the interior in natural light, an easy transition between the indoors and outdoors, and generous proportions throughout.
âCourchene and Hasey have both tapped into todayâs latest trends, and homebuyers have responded enthusiastically,â adds McGinnis. âThe Grand Estates is a flurry of activity, as the finished homes have recently sold and the new models are in various stages of construction. This neighborhood will sell out well before we expected and homebuyers sense the urgency, which has really spurred sales.â
Indeed, Old Palm is exceptional throughout and epitomizes âLife Well-Lived.â The Club is a welcome blend of tradition and contemporary luxuries that feels like home. Designed to mirror the intimate scale of a Palm Beach estate, the Mediterranean-style Club encourages members to mingle in its casual, pleasantly understated atmosphere. The dining venues and inspired menus are equally exquisite, yet without even a hint of stuffiness. The sense of comfort and conviviality naturally extends into the Spa, Fitness Center and Casitas adjacent to the Club, where members can house their guests in sumptuously appointed suites.
Old Palm is also synonymous with golf, a tribute to the legendary Raymond Floyd who designed the spectacular golf course and its devilish 19th or bye hole. A resident of Old Palm and Honorary Club Chairman, Floyd served as Vice Captain for the U.S. team in the 2014 Ryder Cup, as well. Another major draw for golfers is Old Palmâs Golf Studio, a remarkable practice area with indoor and outdoor facilities that allows them to replicate every shot that may be encountered on the course. A game-improvement enthusiastâs dream, the Golf Studio houses three practice holes, a double-ended range, V-1 equipped hitting bay with TrackMan technology, short game area and putting green.
Old Palm is ideally located in the heart of Palm Beach Gardens with close proximity to a wealth of luxuries and conveniences, including membersâ access to a private beach club.
Old Palm Golf Club stands alone as the premier private Club community in the Palm Beaches, with new estate homes ranging in price from $1.5 million to $15 million. Isle Estates, Old Palmâs newest neighborhood, recently opened and the response has been overwhelmingly positive for this new collection of coastal-style homes.
Additionally, Old Palm is near both Palm Beach International Airport and North County General Aviation Airport, which accommodates private aircraft. Old Palm is being developed by Clarion partners, a leading real estate investment firm with more than $25 billion in assets under management.
