The huge influx of new employees at Scripps & Max Planck in Jupiter has buyers scrambling for affordable housing in and around Jupiter. Garage homes are high on the list of wants and needs. Fortunately there are some great options within a 1 mile radius of these scientific research institutes available for sale and as rentals.
Garage homes under $300,000 or in the low $300k range are generally townhomes. If you're amicable to living in a row house, then this might be the best option for you if affordability is crucial. Also a great option is renting to see if this is a lifestyle you are able to adjust to.
Scripps & Max Planck are adjacent to 2 of the most affordable garage townhome communities in Abacoa, Osceola Woods and Antigua. 3 story townhomes in both neighborhoods are available in 2-5 bedroom configurations and have rear loading 2 car garages. Antigua offers a 2 story model in 2-3 bedrooms with a 1 car rear loading garage and with pricing under $300,000.

Evergrene condos are priced from $200,000 to the high $300,000's depending on location, size and configuration. The 2 bedroom 1 car garage is the smallest of Evergrene condos, limited views of preserves and lake from the balcony. Most windows face the rear parking area. However the 3 bedroom condos have 2 car garages with prices starting in the high $200,000's and views of Lake Evergrene, a 37 acre natural lake in the center of the community. Rear loading garages give the appearance of extremely large mansions. At a quick glance you would be hard pressed to ascertain that each building contains 3 residences.
