(PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.) - Old Palm Golf Club - the premier private and exclusive residential community in the Palm Beaches - announces the first phase of its new Isle Estates neighborhood is nearing completion.
Four model homes, ranging from nearly 5,100 to more than 5,500 sq. ft. under air, are scheduled to open for touring in early March. Each is beautifully sited on a one-third acre home site overlooking one of Old Palm's largest lakes and the spectacular Raymond Floyd-designed golf course. To extend views even farther, the parcels are slightly elevated.
Of the 33 planned home sites, 22 will be included in the first release. Home prices will be set in the coming weeks, but are anticipated to range from $2 to $3 million.
"Isle Estates is a completely unique concept within Old Palm," says Connie McGinnis, director of sales. "The neighborhood looks and feels coastal; so much so that you might think you were in the British West Indies or an exclusive enclave on Palm Beach."
Acclaimed independent builders Courchene Development Corp. (the Hamilton and St. James models) and Hasey Construction (the Bonair and Belize models) constructed the first four homes.
Named for the capital of Bermuda, Courchene's Hamilton reflects the traditional tropical style of the British-influenced island. Its one-story layout encompasses 5,080 sq. ft. under air and features four bedrooms, five full and one half-bath, a great room and media room, and a three-car garage. Interiors are crafted by Insignia Design.
"It's a clean, refreshing design that's very open and airy," says Paul Courchene, president and partner of Courchene Development Corp. "Oversized 12-foot-high motorized pocket doors open to the outside and lead to a free-form swimming pool."
Courchene's other model, the 5,129 sq. ft. under air St. James, is also a one-story residence with four bedrooms, five full and one half-bath, and a media room set away from the spacious living and family rooms. Inspired by the British West Indies, the St. James features a transitional interior by Insignia Design that takes advantage of the model's abundance of natural light. It also offers a three-car garage.
Hasey Construction's two-story, 5,275 sq. ft. under air Bonair showcases four bedrooms and five full and two half-baths. Its traditional great room plan includes a club room, theater and loft. Rogers Design Group created the interiors using light colors that imbue the space with an alluring informality. The model also features a three-car garage.
"The coastal architecture lends the Bonair a feeling that's more casual than might be expected," says Patrick Hasey, the company's director of sales and marketing. "Another huge draw is the panoramic view from the second floor overlooking the lake and the 11th tee of the Old Palm golf course."
Hasey's larger, 5,540 sq. ft. under air Belize is also two stories. Its more traditional layout features five bedrooms, six full and two half baths, a living room, family room, club room and loft. Decorators Unlimited designed the interiors to enhance the delightful coastal architecture. Like the other three models, the Belize boasts a three-car garage.
In 2013, Old Palm enjoyed record home sales totaling more than 40 transactions and $91 million. This represents a nearly 50% increase over 2012 revenues.
Interest remains high in the club's other three gracious and distinct neighborhoods (Golf Estates, Grand Estates and Custom Estates) with homes ranging from $1.3 to more than $15 million. Each offers new homes with special characteristics, designed and constructed by award-winning homebuilders to the most exacting of standards.
Located six miles from the Atlantic Ocean in one of the world's most golf-rich locales, Old Palm is the epitome of exclusivity with 316 home lots and 330 memberships. An extraordinary selection of homes is currently available in this sought-after niche of Palm Beach Gardens.
