life in jupiter: Life in Jupiter is worlds apart - 03/16/11 01:12 AM

It is no surprise that Jupiter is growing exponentially with corporate and lifestyle transplants from Southern Florida and across the nation.  The reasons are clear. Remarkably well planned communities.  Less traffic & congestion. Far Lower crime rates. Sound infrastructure with underground utilities.  A huge construction boom with top builders. "A rated" schools. And eco-awarness.
It's minutes from Palm Beach and West Palm.  A quick drive to Boca Raton or Ft. Lauderdale. An hour & a half, tops, from Miami. Life in Jupiter is right near everything you need.
A million miles away from everything you want to leave behind.

life in jupiter: A great place to slip your sloop - 03/15/11 02:24 PM
If it floats...
It's not remotely surprising that the Jupiter inlet and Intercoastal Waterway are a huge draw for serious boat people. What kind of boat you have is rather immaterial. It could be a ketch or a yawl, a sloop, a schooner, a motor launch or just a big-ass yacht. Regardless, if it floats, point it toward Jupiter and launch a whole new lifestyle.

Moor it in Jupiter.
The Jupiter Yacht Club was made for you! A glorious condo complex with both intercoastal and ocean water views, charming shops, little restaurants, boat slips practically at your door. It really … (0 comments)

life in jupiter: Jupiter... more food for thought - 03/15/11 02:01 PM
One of the main reasons I moved north to Jupiter, FL from Miami was the pure ease of living. Less congestion. More manageable environment. Really laid-back atmosphere.  And when I think of easy living, I just naturally think of brunch.
Now, there are places, like Washington D.C., where brunch is a serious event. So serious it has spawned the verb "to brunch." 
Jupiter is just the contrary.  Here you can put on your flip-flops and your jeans and head over to the Hurricane Café for a more than respectable Eggs Benedict ... the Juno Beach Café for fluffy blueberry pancakes ... … (3 comments)

life in jupiter: South Florida is for the birds... snowbirds that is! - 03/09/11 10:50 PM
T.S. Eliot wrote that April is the cruelest month ... but T.S. Eliot forgot what it was like to live in New England during a late March snowstorm.  March 21st is the official first day of spring, but those of you up north might never know it.
There really is no reason to spend another winter shivering in the sub-zero weather, scraping snow off your windshield, and dealing with all the wind chills and potholes, Next winter you can laugh at the threatening weather from your own sunny Abacoa® home in Jupiter, Florida.
Here you can get reacquainted with your old friend - … (0 comments)

life in jupiter: There's a reason they call this this Palm Coast! - 11/30/08 03:47 AM
It's not just because it's a glorious sunspot for boating, fishing, golfing or hitting the beach. It's because it now offers a remarkable combination -a laid-back place to live, and a booming place to invest in Florida properties!
From Boca to Stuart and beyond, you'll be seeing home prices start to rebound dramatically. The reason is simple. Northern Palm Beach County is beginning to enjoy the benefits of a growing biotechnology cluster focused on Scripps Florida... right here in Jupiter!
That's right folks, if you own a Jupiter home, you're at the very heart of what's happening. There's a significant amount … (0 comments)

life in jupiter: Come explore the atmosphere of Jupiter! - 11/30/08 01:51 AM
                       
Where the sky's so dark, the stars don't just twinkle. They pop. And the moon seems to hang in mid-air, almost close enough to touch. So oversized, you expect to see the Dreamworks® logo. And the waves keep rolling gently in.
If all that sounds just a bit too picturesque, you haven't explored the Jupiter atmosphere. Where you can live your life in flip-flops. Dine alfresco nearly every night. Sip a martini or a brew. Sail the intercoastal or bike along the beach. Scout the local art fairs that spring up on weekends. Alternate between the Food Shack and … (0 comments)

life in jupiter: Watershed Moments - 11/29/08 12:52 PM
Everyone has them. Those moments when something strikes you a certain way, alters your perception, changes the outcome.
Take Florida rains, for example.  They're particularly impressive. The sheer heaviness of them. The electrical violence of lightening streaks and thunder booms that stun any new transplant. Dangerous. Dramatic. Run-for-cover rain that makes you pull off the Turnpike, duck off the golf course, head for shore in a small boat. Deluges that turn everything even greener. Refill our water supply. Refuel our ecosystems. And give everyone the chance to hide inside, snuggle up, take time out.
Rains in Florida offer a dramatic change … (0 comments)

life in jupiter: Not just another fish story! - 11/29/08 07:22 AM
I'm a New Jersey girl. My sole experience with fish before I moved to Florida was ordering it Sunday morning at the local deli. But, when I moved to Miami and married an honest-to-Pete Floridian, I got a crash course in everything with gills.
Five years ago, we escaped to Jupiter. Two fugitives from congestion, urban sprawl, high crime rates. Moved into a townhouse on a lake, just across from where we were building our dream house.  We were home in Valencia at Abacoa.
Now, in those days, we still commuted daily to work down south. And they were long days … (0 comments)

life in jupiter: 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)

life in jupiter: SAD but true... except in Jupiter - 11/27/08 08:21 AM

More people than you know suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) ... caused by the lack of sunlight that accompanies fall's short days and winter's long nights. Oddly, that lack of light can play havoc with you physically and emotionally. According to the Mayo Clinic, it can trigger feelings of depression, lethargy, fatigue, anxiety, social withdrawal, weight gain, even difficulty concentrating. No doubt about it ... the winter blues can severely impact your daily life.
That said, treatment is really quite simple. You can spend hours a day sitting in front of a full spectrum light box. Or you can … (0 comments)

life in jupiter: Valencia at Abacoa - Just when you thought you'd seen it all... - 11/26/08 11:56 PM

You come across the house at 320 Murcia in Valencia at Abacoa. This 5-bedroom, 4.5 bath, 3600 square foot home sits on a surprisingly oversized lot across the street from the clubhouse and a park.
Inside it's not just a fabulous, cream-colored dream of a house. It's pristine ... mint-condition ... immaculate ...perfection. From the crown moldings to the recessed ceiling in the formal dining room to the wrought iron spindles up the staircase to the Chicago pavers that deck out the most completely private pool out back ... this house has style.
And the kind of extras you rarely … (2 comments)
