âIf the first six months of 2014 is any indication, Old Palm will break all sales records this year,â says Connie McGinnis, Director of Sales, âmaking it our best year ever. Summer is traditionally the slower-season when several of our residents within the community visit their northern homes, but this year we havenât experienced a slow down at Old Palm. Homebuyers realize just how special our community is, and they donât want to miss the opportunity to live here.â To date, 26 estate properties have sold for a total of more than $58 million. Sales are red-hot in Old Palmâs neighborhoods, and with the recent opening of the Isle Estates neighborhood, the variety of luxurious home designs and home sites has only increased.

Old Palmâs recently opened Isle Estates neighborhood appeals to homebuyers that are drawn to coastal architecture, which is rarely if ever found in planned communities. Think of Isle Estates as a tropical oasis with luxurious overtones of the British West Indies and a prominent Caribbean flair. The architecture is dramatically different, the home sites offer unprecedented long vistas, and the landscaping uniquely evokes the ambiance of the islands. There is simply nothing else like Isle Estates, featuring homes from 4,300 to 6,800 square feet of living space.Â The four fully-furnished designer models demonstrate cutting edge style and design showcasing a sought after indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The Grand Estates is another spectacular alternate for those who prefer a larger residences, as homes range from 4,800 to 6,800 square feet on half-acre home sites. Here, Courchene has tapped into todayâs trends with its highly desirable 5,837-square-foot Bentley, a model with four bedrooms, five full and two half baths, a den, and a tiered home theater. One of the homeâs most dramatic features is the glass-walled wine gallery between the living and dining rooms. The Bentley can be built from $2,650,000. Hasey Construction has been equally successful with its magnificent Ashford, a two-story 6,394-square-foot model. It features five bedrooms, six full and two half baths and a comfortable club room. The layout encourages entertaining, especially in the heart of the home where the kitchen opens onto the family room. The pool lies directly behind the living room, affording a clear view of the subtropical landscaping, open cabana and fountain beyond. The Ashford starts at $2,890,000. âThere is a sense of drama when you walk in,â says Patrick Hasey, the companyâs Director of Sales and Marketing. âThe Ashford is very Palm Beach because of the way the swimming pool sets up close to the home with a covered patio behind it. You can see the pool from throughout the house.â Sales in Old Palmâs Custom Estates are also robust. The one-acre home sites in this extraordinary neighborhood give owners the freedom to build residences that are one-of-a-kind, as they work hand in hand with the builders to create dream homes.
