jupiter communities: Serenity... now! - 10/14/09 03:04 AM
Every once in a great while you walk into a house that feels, well, quite perfect. You could move in without changing nary a thing. Even the wallpaper is charming, delightful, completely unexpected.  That's 148 Santiago Drive, in Valencia at Abacoa.
It sits unobtrusively on a very quiet street.  The playground and community pool are near by ... but you'd never know it. On paper this home appears quite mundane... one story, 2900+ square feet, 3 bedrooms with an office/den, and three full baths. But, surprise! You leave ordinary at the door.
Inside the foyer is a formal living room to … (0 comments)

jupiter communities: Who say's no man is an island! - 12/04/08 12:44 PM
Clearly if John had Donne his homework, and visited this charming Divosta Abacoa neighborhood rimmed by lush green golf courses and lazy little lakes, he would have known just how beautiful that concept can be.
In The Island, well-established trees line the streets. Three, four and five bedroom homes are amply endowed with big welcoming front porches and portachaches. Houses on the outside back up to rather spectacular views of the golf course & lakes.  And even though the street names ring of Barbados and Bermuda...the architecture is far more Cape Cod than Caribbean. But don't worry.  The net … (2 comments)

jupiter communities: Why buy at Admirals Cove? - 11/30/08 12:18 PM
Admirals Cove offers a wide range of magnificent homes, from a bit more modest to outrageously divine! Each one a standout, worthy of consideration on its own particular merits. But great residences are just one reason to seek out Admirals' Cove... one of Palm Beach County's premier addresses. Most choose it for a lifestyle based around yachting, golf or tennis.
There you'll find six miles of inland waterways, backyard docks, ocean access, a 72-slip marina, marina shop, and marina cafe. 45 Holes of championship golf-with the newly redesigned Von Hagge course with dramatic elevations, 27 holes of challenging play … (1 comments)

jupiter communities: Valencia at Abacoa - Call me partial! - 11/28/08 05:59 AM
Yes, it's true. I live in Valencia at Abacoa. But even if I didn't, I'd want to. Abacoa is a pretty remarkable planned community by anyone's standards. And Valencia is by far its crown jewel. Sure, green parks, little bridges, a delightful lake, community clubhouse and pool add to its charm. But what I love about this particular little enclave is it's gated community feel and value without the yoke of an equity membership!
Valencia is the architectural product of four top builders...Frankel-Paone, Issa, The Spear Group and Delcrest.  Each brings different floor plans, perspectives and personal touches to its Mediterranean … (2 comments)

jupiter communities: Valencia at Abacoa - Have I got a dreamhouse for you! - 11/28/08 02:08 AM
The address is 124 Santiago Drive in Valencia at Abacoa. The neighborhood alone should tip you off. But nothing will quite prepare you for this house. Not for the Brazilian cherry and mud set porcelain floors (that you'll probably mistake for marble). Not for the dream kitchen with two extensive islands (one a work station), two built-in stainless fridges, and the commercial gas stove. Not for  the adjoining family room with the hand-coffered ceiling (the cost of which could have paid for a year away at college). Or, just past the family room, the wall of French doors the … (2 comments)

jupiter communities: The Island at Abacoa - You could curl up on the large front porch! - 11/28/08 01:51 AM
If you moved into 196 Barbados Drive, in The Island at Abacoa, you'd be happy just sitting on the big porch swing with bare toes, looking out at the lovely tree-lined drive. And you'd never get wet coming in from the car, with that portacache alongside.
Of course, you'd be equally happy lazing about in the huge screened-in backyard...big enough to add a pool, but incredibly charming as is. Looking out on a quiet lake with the view of golf beyond.

But if you did decide to wander indoors, you'd never be at a loss. Every detail of … (0 comments)

jupiter communities: Stonebriar at Maplewood - The impossible Dream. - 11/27/08 03:14 PM
A depressed market is always a mixed blessing. It sometimes makes the impossible possible. Take the house I just saw at 138 Cypress Cove, in the Jupiter gated community of Stonebriar. This 1994 contemporary 5-bedoom, 3 ½-bath home is really quite perfect.
Perfectly maintained and immaculate. Perfectly situated on an end lot with all kinds of room for a private pool. Perfectly designed with air, light space...archways, cutouts, vaulted ceilings and lots of nooks. Perfectly accessible to A-rated schools, churches and temples well within walking distance. Perfectly active ... with a canal for kayaking and canoeing, a community pool and tennis … (0 comments)
