However, the golfer in your family will never be more than a few minutes away from an excellent championship course to play, nor the spa devotee far from a rejuvenating visit to some of the best destination spas anywhere.
A touch of whimsical found throughout Steeplechase are the street names in the community that have been named after legendary thoroughbred racehorses. You might find yourself living on boulevards named Man O' War, Native Dancer, Whirlaway, Seabiscuit, and so many more. It's a touch of fun, and a tip of the hat to the sport of kings.
A Little About Life in Palm Beach Gardens, and the History of Steeplechase Racing
Living in Palm Beach Gardens means you will be close to all the customary conveniences. Extraordinary shopping, dining and entertainment options can be found here, as well as throughout the neighboring towns of Jupiter and West Palm Beach further south. The Gardens Mall in Palm Beach Gardens is a must-see. And don't forget your proximity to the Atlantic Ocean and all its nautical delights – you'll only be a few miles away from its splendor, wild natural beauty, and clear blue waters. You are also just moments from entrances to the Florida Turnpike and I-95, and Palm Beach International Airport lays a 20-minute drive to the south. Your children will be able to attend A-rated public schools, or any of several private schools located throughout the immediate area. And don't miss the year round farmers' green market held every weekend in town. These are only some of the reasons Palm Beach Gardens residents love their community. And you will, too.
And that is but a brief description of the Steeplechase community, so named for the centuries-old British sport of riding hunting horses over hill and dale, and obstacles high and low in a race that was a test of strength, skill and stamina for both horse and rider. Steeplechase riders would keep the church steeple in sight as they guided their horses to the end of the race on the church grounds, all the way trying to keep them from tripping, falling or knocking over the hurdle gates, or stumbling into the brooks and streams in their path. And we at Frankel Realty Group will work to keep your home hunting as obstacle-free as possible, as well.
