Old Palm’s Grand Estates now grander than ever

January 11, 2013

With the addition of three new models in Old Palm Golf Club’s elegant Grand Estates, there’s now an even more extraordinary selection of available homes in the neighborhood. Luxuriously detailed and generously proportioned, the residences within the Grand Estates lie on half-acre home sites that allow for spacious designs and expansive backyards. While the three models all overlook private water features, other Grand Estates home sites are available with views of Old Palm’s magnificent Raymond Floyd-designed golf course. “Residences in this neighborhood sold extremely well last year,” says Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales at Old Palm, “and with the opening of these new models, interest among homebuyers will only increase. There’s plenty of diversity within the three floor plans, as far as the number of bedrooms, baths and design features, so families can select the layout that’s ideal for them.” Courchene Development Corporation built two of the new models on adjacent home sites on Old Palm’s lovely Calla Lilly Court cul-de-sac. 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 Bentley can be built from $2,323,000. One of its most unexpected features is the glass-walled wine gallery between the living and dining rooms. “We’ve built wine rooms before,” explains Paul Courchene, President and Partner of Courchene Development Corporation. “but this wine wall is a first, and it really adds to the overall design.” At 6,855 square feet, Courchene’s two-story Royalton model is somewhat larger than the Bentley to accommodate five bedrooms, a den, game room, loft, six full and two half baths. The size adds to its flexibility and appeal. It’s 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. The Royalton can be built from $2,623,000. “Later this month, we’re hosting a VIP event for brokers and realtors to tour the models,” adds McGinnis, “so they can see the newest trends in design and construction. Once you see these homes firsthand, you realize just how spectacular they are.” The third new model in the Grand Estates is Hasey Construction’s exceptional Castillo II, a single-story home that’s being built one street over on Calleta Court. It features a traditional, split floor plan of 5,665 square feet with four bedrooms, five full baths, two half baths, a den and a game room. The floor plan encourages entertaining, especially in the heart of the home where the kitchen opens onto the family room. Hasey recently sold one of these popular models, and this new Castillo II is near completion. It’s expected to be finished before the end of the season. Although under construction, it can still be toured and is far enough along to provide a good look at its wonderful features. Pricing for the Castillo II starts at $2,248,000. 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 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 house their guests in sumptuously appointed suites. Old Palm Golf Club stands alone as the premier private Club community in the Palm Beaches, with new estate homes ranging in price from $1.2 million to $12 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 aircraft. Old Palm is being developed by Clarion partners, a leading real estate investment firm with over $25 billion in assets under management.
