Palm Coast, FL – March 6, 2015 – This week’s featured home is located on a saltwater canal in the “C” section of Palm Coast called Palm Harbor. Built in 2000, the home has three bedrooms, two baths, a fireplace, screened lanai, pool, spa, boat dock with a 7,000 lb. lift and 2,185 square feet of living area.
The spacious kitchen at 20 Commander Court has exceptional appliances, granite countertops and a kitchen island. The custom split floor plan is arranged with a guest bath flanked by two guest bedrooms. A front side office opens into the entry foyer. Seamless aquarium style windows overlook the screened lanai and heated pool. French doors open from the master in-suite bedroom to the lanai.
This week’s home is located near the intersection of four canals, offering spectacular views in every direction and direct access to the Intracoastal Waterway. It has been meticulously maintained and is worthy of a yachtsman's inspection. The home is reached via Palm Harbor Pkwy and is a short distance from the City’s recently opened Long Creek Nature Preserve.
There are twenty-three miles of saltwater canals within Palm Coast’s canal system. They are an integral part of the city’s storm water management system and add significant value to home sites located adjacent to them because of the Intracoastal Waterway access provided. Parallel canals branch off the main canals, creating fingers of land. The fingers provide room for homes on each side of the street with a cul-de-sac at the end.
Location, location, location
There is plenty of Florida land on which future developers can build residential projects around golf courses, lakes (retention ponds), equestrian facilities or other amenities. But the current inventory of salt water frontage is fixed by strict environmental regulations. Many Palm Harbor homes were built during the seventies and eighties. Some are small and haven't been updated. Look during the next market upswing for "tear downs;" homes bought solely for the desirability of their location. They will be torn down to be replaced with larger homes featuring more upscale features.
