D.R. Horton Poised to Break Ground at Country Club Harbor
Palm Coast pioneers’ introduction to the master planned community began with a visit to this spot where ITT/Levitt model home, an observation tower and a water taxi dock once stood.
Palm Coast, FL – March 29, 2015 – D.R. Horton is poised to break ground soon at Country Club Harbor, its new community off Club House Drive surrounded by the Palm Harbor Golf Course. The 54-home gated community will offer both saltwater canal lots with Intracoastal Waterway access and golf course lots.
Country Club Harbor Site Plan
Construction on the first model home on lot 26 will commence soon. Homes will range from 1,700 square feet to 4,000 square feet with house/lot prices ranging from the low $300s to the $400s. Also planned is a kayak and canoe launch.
The site is historically significant. Palm Coast pioneers were taken to the spot to view model homes and to get a panoramic view of the emerging master planned community from an observation tower. The on-site dock facilitated water taxi tours as illustrated by the following photographs.

When I moved to Palm Coast in 2003, the realtors told me to buy a home built of cement blocks and stucco because they were stronger and less apt to have trouble with termites. The D.H. Horton homes being built seem to be all wood construction. Have things changed so that Stick built homes are just as good as concrete block and stucco?
