Palm Beach Country Estates
Palm Beach Country Estates is a family-friendly community that is well-known for its large lots, custom homes, and quiet atmosphere. The lots in the community are a minimum of 1.25 acres, and since each estate is custom-built, no two homes are alike. Residents appreciate the pride in ownership, privacy, and the freedom that exists from no homeowners association. As an added advantage, the community is in the zone of Palm Beach County’s top-rated public schools.
Demand for homes in the community has increased dramatically since the completion of nearby Abacoa community development along with Florida Atlantic University, Scripps Research Institute, and the extension of I-95. Prior to these developments, the residents in nearby towns and cities called this community boondocks. Developed as a community for horse lovers, many homes feature Equestrian facilities. Most of the original homes in this community are old, built in the 1970s, but new construction is still an option for those wishing to build their own home. Currently, there are more than 1300 existing homes and more than 100 lots available for purchase.
Located at the end of Donald Ross Boulevard, this quiet community has not lost its sense of peaceful living. While more shopping, dining, and civilization has highlighted the neighborhood and increased its value, residents are quick to point out that they are still “country.” With no homeowners association or deed restrictions, residents are free to use the land as they wish. However, the Donald Ross Landowner Association requests a $35 donation to maintain the entrance and support a few of the annual events. Typically, there are not too many homes on each street, and the homeowners decide for themselves if they want to share the cost for things such as a paved street. The community uses septic tanks and, while city water is available, many residents prefer to use their own well water.
With the substantial growth in Abacoa, Jupiter and Palm Beach Gardens, the secret is out about tranquil Palm Beach Country Estates!
