Crafting the perfect lifestyle in Palm Beach County is about more than just the size of the kitchen or space in the backyard. The community in which your home is located is just as important to the quality of life as the home itself. With an abundance of master-planned communities in Jupiter, Palm Beach Gardens and the surrounding area, homebuyers are accustomed to considering neighborhood amenities as part of the package. Here are the most popular community amenities of 2019:
Parks and Green Space –
Topping the list of desired amenities is green space. Studies show that as homebuyers seek smaller square footage, they also are seeking outdoor space from their neighborhood. Communities like Evergrene, with its 36.5-acre lake surrounded by paved walking trails, may be just the ticket.
Trail Systems –
Along the same lines as green space and parks is the desire for trails throughout the community. Homebuyers are interested in both paved and natural trails for walking, hiking or biking. The greenway system in Abacoa weaves between its numerous neighborhoods. Check out the trail map here: https://www.abacoa.com/greenways-lakes
Resort Style Pool and Clubs –
Pools and clubhouses have become more elaborate over the past decade and homebuyers expect their community pool to feel like a vacation spot in style, size, and extras, such as towel service and snack bars. Club communities worth considering are Mirasol, Frenchman’s Reserve and Frenchman’s Creek.
World Class Gyms and Courts –
Exercise rooms and courts are also expected to rival the best fitness centers in the area. Resort communities such as PGA National offer enormous fitness facilities, training and group classes. https://www.pgaresort.com/experiences/sports-and-racquet-club-fitness
Main Street Village Centers –
As developers create their neighborhoods, daily necessities must be readily available. Artfully designing the shopping area to include a “main street” feel is a huge plus to homebuyers. Downtown Abacoa is a prime example and features on-site shopping, entertainment, services, and dining. http://www.downtownabacoa.com/
Marinas and Boat Slips –
This community amenity is unique to coastal towns like Jupiter, Tequesta, Juno Beach, and North Palm Beach. For boaters, keeping their vessel and having access to marina services within the gates of their development is the ultimate convenience. Communities with deep water access such as Admiral’s Cove, Jonathan’s Landing, Cypress Island, and Azure and Bay Colony should be at the top of anyone’s list.
Lifestyle is a complete package. With the appeal of smaller homes and no or low maintenance properties, homebuyers are seeking the extra space in their communities, replacing large private yards with community space and amenities.
