West Indies-inspired Designs in Old Palm’s Isle Estates

October 13, 2016

Lot18 bonair ext.rear24 150x150 The Isle Estates recalls a Caribbean flair, with British Colonial West Indies island-inspired homes and tropical landscaping noticeable throughout. Many of the elegant homes gracing this Old Palm Golf Club neighborhood evoke elements of the late 18th and 19th century Caribbean plantation architecture that artfully blended the formality brought by British, French and Dutch colonists with Indian, African and Asian themes. The British West Indies style is based primarily on Georgian architecture, incorporating clean lines, symmetry and open spaces for an airy feeling. Elements such as columns, railings, shutters, louvers, finials, open corbels and wide overhangs give the West Indies style its particular flavor, examples of which can be seen on many of homes in the Isle Estates. The design evolved to suit the warm and rainy Caribbean climate, with plenty of windows and broad ceiling fans for airflow, and verandahs for lounging. In Florida, the tradition translates beautifully to high ceilings, walls of glass and lanai living. Currently, two of South Florida’s most respected independent luxury homebuilders have new models available in the Isle Estates, although probably not for long. Hasey Construction has two Bonair models under construction and a completed Bermuda model ready for immediate move-in — just in time for holidays and Season — while Courchene Development Corp. also has two models under construction — the Coquina and the Sandpiper. The Isle Estates overlooks the 10th, 11th and 12th holes of the spectacular Raymond Floyd-designed golf course at Old Palm Golf Club in Palm Beach Gardens. Only 33 spacious, one-third acre home sites with golf and water views comprise this charming collection of homes, which range from 4,300 to 6,800 square feet under air and are priced between $2,000,000 and $4,000,000. To see any of the beautiful models or remaining home sites currently available at Old Palm Golf Club, call (888) 878-6277 and our helpful team of sales professionals will arrange a tour.
