PALM COAST’S SALTWATER CANALS
Palm Coast’s salt water canals, located within the Palm Harbor section of the city create hundreds of building lots with boat access to the Intracoastal Waterway. 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. Chelsea Court is a cul-de-sac street.
Salt water canal frontage adds significant value to a home site. Many homes in the “C” section were built during the early years of Palm Coast’s development in the seventies and eighties. Unlike the House of the Week, which was built in 2004, many “C” section homes are small and have not 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.
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.
Flagler County and Palm Coast are located between St. Augustine and Daytona Beach.
