Old Palm Golf Club offers the rare luxury of one-acre home sites

February 08, 2012

Of all the unique aspects of Old Palm Golf Club, the availability of one-acre home sites may well be the most distinguishing feature. Old Palm is one of the only luxury golf club communities in the Palm Beaches offering new homes on one-acre estate home sites. Buyers can select from several model homes already built on one of these generously sized lots in the Custom Estates neighborhood, or simply purchase the land and then build the custom home of their dreams. “A one-acre home site gives the buyer much more flexibility for the design of the home,” explains Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales at Old Palm. “They might choose to add a guest house, motor court, or expanded swimming pool and cabana area. The additional space also allows for the expansion a home theater or club room. There are very few limitations when you have a one-acre home site. Ours offer the added benefit of overlooking the pristine Raymond Floyd-designed golf course, lakes or preserves.” Only the finest builders in South Florida have been invited to construct custom estates in Old Palm. They include the most respected and prestigious names in the industry, including Casto Homes, Courchene Development Corporation, Couture Lifestyle Homes, Dreamstar Custom Homes, Hasey Construction, Mustapick Estate Homes and Pinetree Homes. A few custom estate homes on one-acre sites are currently available for immediate occupancy. The Casa Palermo is a masterpiece of craftsmanship that sprawls over 8,576 feet of inspired living space, all of it exquisitely detailed in a Mediterranean style. Built by Pinetree Homes, this extraordinary residence boasts five bedrooms, six full and two half baths, and a four-car garage. However, size only touches upon its charms. Inlays enhance many of the marble floors, exposed beams add a sense of drama, and the striking custom cabinetry extends throughout. The Decorators Unlimited created the wonderfully complementary interiors. The outdoor space is equally impressive, as Casa Palermo sits majestically on its one-acre lot overlooking the first hole of the golf course. Similarly, the 9,845-square-foot Mediterranean-style Bella Vita is beautifully situated on a home site of more than one acre overlooking the 14th hole. Grand twin staircases with Old World wrought-iron balustrades grace the foyer. Majestic fireplaces are at the heart of many of the rooms, including the outdoor covered veranda. Abundant windows provide unobstructed views of the grounds and bathe the interiors with natural sunlight during the day. Lustrous wooden coffered ceilings and accents add drama and emotional warmth. Other details incorporated into this 6-bedroom custom estate include a private home theater room, elevator and a home office encompassed in pecky cypress. In a nod to the glorious Mediterranean design of Old Palm Beach, the even more spacious Casa Vizcaya covers 10,448 square feet. This extraordinary estate’s other numbers are just as spectacular; there are six bedrooms, six full and two half baths, and a five and one-half car garage. Highlights include a sweeping staircase in the foyer, intricately detailed coffered and wooden beamed ceilings, inlaid marble floors, custom cabinetry throughout, an unrivaled home theater, a saltwater swimming pool, and a motor court that sets a tone of excellence before even entering the Casa Vizcaya. The views are truly panoramic, as the estate overlooks a lake and the second hole of the golf course. Of course, Old Palm is exceptional on so many levels, and that passion for excellence and going above and beyond carries into the Club, 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. Dining in the Club’s four magnificent venues is as exquisite as it is friendly. The sense of comfort and conviviality just naturally extends into the Spa, Fitness Center and the Casitas, adjacent to the Club where members can temporarily house their guests in sumptuously appointed suites. There’s even an unrivalled Golf Studio practice facility for members to fine-tune their games. 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 more than $15 million. It is ideally located in the heart of Palm Beach Gardens with close proximity to a wealth of luxuries and conveniences, including both Palm Beach International Airport and North County General Aviation Airport, which accommodates private jet airplanes. Old Palm enjoys sound financial security and stability, as it is managed by Clarion Partners, a leading real estate investment firm.
