Sales have been uncommonly strong throughout the summer and fall in Old Palm Golf Club, and Courchene Development Corporation is ideally positioned to take advantage of the vibrant real estate market, which will only strengthen in season. By yearâs end, Courchene will have opened three new models in Old Palm, each one aimed at a slightly different buyer. âWe have a variety of home designs that will appeal to today's new home buyers," says Paul Courchene, President and Partner of Courchene Development Corporation. âBrokers and prospective buyers have given all three models great reviews. We are very excited about the upcoming season.â Courcheneâs most intimate model, the 3,485-square-foot Poinciana II, lies on a beautiful quarter-acre home site in Old Palmâs Golf Estates neighborhood. The homeâs traditional split floor plan features three bedrooms, three full and one half bath, an office and a spacious great room that opens onto a covered loggia. To maximize views of the tropical landscaping, the Poinciana II has been designed with plenty of windows and doors for a seamless flow between the indoors and outdoors. The Poinciana II is priced from $1,320,000 when built on a standard preserve homesite. For homebuyers seeking a larger residence, Courchene offers two new models in Old Palmâs Grand Estates neighborhood, each one on a generous half-acre home site overlooking a private water feature. The 5,837-square-foot Bentley has four bedrooms, five full and two half baths, a den and a tiered home theater that will be totally automated, right down to the electric reclining seats. Although the floor plan is grand and open, the home still retains its warmth and intimacy. The BentleyÂ is priced from $2,323,000. One of its most unexpected features is the glass-walled wine gallery between the living and dining rooms. âWeâve built wine rooms before,â explains Courchene, âbut this wine wall is a first, and it really adds to the overall design.â At 6,855 square feet, the two-story Royalton is somewhat larger to accommodate five bedrooms, a den, playroom, loft, six full and two half baths. The size adds to its flexibility and appeal. Itâs ideal for empty nesters that want separate areas for their kids or grandkids when they visit. The design is also perfectly suited for young families that may prefer to have their children on the second floor, separated from the master suite on the first floor. Itâs priced from $2,623,000. Courchene also has another new model in the early design stages thatâs intended to appeal to buyers wanting a more traditional floor plan with a family room and living room. Although the model hasnât been named or priced, it is expected to encompass just under 4,000 square feet and have four bedrooms. It can be built on any home site in the Golf Estates. Old Palm is exceptional on so many levels, and that passion for excellence 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 Clubâs 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 house their guests in sumptuously appointed suites. Thereâs even an unrivaled Golf Studio practice facility for members to fine-tune their game.
