A cluster of tracts in western Jupiter known as Ranch Colony may not be quite the same size as the ranches of the Old West, but Ranch Colony in the Jupiter Farms area is the wide open spaces, Florida-style. Homes for sale in Ranch Colony are not to be missed if you are of a “don’t fence me in” frame of mind. In the gated, 24-hour manned security of Ranch Colony, you have just happened upon a place to call home where individuality reigns, privacy is paramount, and the live-and-let-live philosophy prevails.
Let Frankel Realty Group show you around the natural wilds of Ranch Colony, some 2,000 acres of magnificent, unspoiled Florida land; a rural setting with large, luxurious homes and expansive properties just waiting for you to call one of them home. The entire 2,000 acres hold just 257 homes set among five distinct residential enclaves that each bears its own unique stamp of independent spirit and collective identity. In Ranch Colony, perhaps the last real outpost in Palm Beach County, you’ll find country chic and sophistication side by side with stocked lakes and nature preserves where wading birds and myriad other wildlife will be your neighbors. And the real estate experts at Frankel Realty Group want to help you find your next new home here, where the choice is plenty – lots from three-quarters of an acre to 100; homes of 1,800 square feet to as many as 18,000; and priced from around $300,000 to $12 million. If you want to buy a home in Ranch Colony, there is something here for you.
Now, about these five enclaves. First, there is The Links, where some 50 golf homes are set on from one to five acres and share the area with the incomparable Dye Preserve Golf Club. This private, 18-hole course set on a nature preserve is a place where the game is played in traditional fashion and where natural beauty and the love of the old game intersect. You’ll be pleased with the understated nature of its clubhouse and the intimate setting it offers for conversation and camaraderie. You may own a home in The Links without joining Dye Preserve Golf Club, but club membership is mandatory to play there. Old time Palm Beachers may remember this course was once known as Cypress Links, but with the creation of Ranch Colony and the course redesign by the great Pete Dye, it’s now named Dye Preserve Golf Club. Get ready for a refined, challenging game.
The next neighborhood is Old Trail where 74 home sites grace not one but two golf courses on lots from three quarters of an acre to about 1.5 acres. The courses at Old Trail are private, and are part of the Jonathan’s Landing community of Jupiter (another great place to live!) Again, home ownership in Old Trail without joining the golf course is perfectly okay, but membership in Jonathan’s Landing is required to play here. (You’ll then have access to not only to the golf, but to the many other fine amenities found at Jonathan’s Landing.) The choice is yours. Here at Old Trail, the two courses are known as The Hills and The Fazio, for reasons perhaps too obvious to mention, and are top flight operations in fantastic, pristine surroundings. There is a club restaurant and grille, much appreciated after an invigorating round.
Now, nothing beats the feeling of freedom and independence that comes with being an aircraft pilot, and that’s the spirit that prevails at Tailwinds, a Ranch Colony neighborhood designed by pilots who thought that being able to park their light GA aircraft in their own backyard sounded like a good idea. Tailwinds has its own small airpark with a 2,700′ hard surface runway, landing lights and a rotating beacon. Fifty-one home sites from about five to seven acres each make up the Tailwinds community, and most have a hangar in the back to put down the chocks (or store an RV, mobile home or other motorized vehicle.) You don’t have to own an airplane to live in Tailwinds, but most if not all folks here do.
Ranch Acres is the fourth neighborhood in Ranch Colony, and it’s here where the home sites start getting much larger, usually from five to ten acres, with magnificent country homes to match. There are 40 home sites in Ranch Acres where residents are most often engaged in equestrian endeavors or perhaps dog breeding. You’ll see homes here that come complete with pastures, stalls, barns, kennels and riding arenas, or if not, plenty of space to build them. These mini-ranches are popular among those looking for wide open spaces on a smaller scale. Beautiful horses and their riders are a sight often seen here, as are bikers and joggers winding their way through the quiet, bucolic setting. Post and rail fences — some white washed, some weathered – line the area and signal you are truly somewhere different, here at Ranch Acres.
Ranch Estates completes the neighborhood offerings of Ranch Colony. It is often said that you save the best for last, but here in Ranch Estates, you are sure to at least be saving the biggest for last. There are 36 large land parcels in Ranch Estates, each from 20 to 50 acres, that are attractive to homeowners who wish to keep many horses or perhaps a small herd of cattle. Here you will find distinctive entrance gates to each home that characterize outdoor ranch décor. Homes for sale in Ranch Estates (in fact in all the homes for sale in Ranch Colony) reflect the style of the owners and their taste for the good life. Ranch Estates homes feature the highest and best available in custom building design; wood, marble and stone building materials; luxurious appointments and fixtures; top shelf appliances and furnishings; and often the special additions of private swimming pools, wine storage rooms, game rooms, home theaters, outdoor kitchens, patios and more, to make your “home on the range” complete.
But the main reason people live in Palm Beach County is the convenience, and Ranch Colony residents are no different. Here you can be minutes to I-95 and the Florida Turnpike, and a 20-minute drive to Palm Beach International Airport. Living in such a rural locale as Ranch Colony, it is often hard to remember that you are as close to the Atlantic Ocean as you are, but it’s just a 15-minute drive away, with the many sporting and leisure attractions that life near the water affords. In Ranch Colony, you are also close to some of the best state parks in Florida, such as Jonathan Dickinson and John D. MacArthur State Parks, both true jewels of the area. The town of Jupiter and nearby city of Palm Beach Gardens offer you everything you could wish for in shopping, dining and entertainment options, and the city of West Palm Beach to the south offers greater selection. Children who live in Ranch Colony attend schools in nearby Martin County, just to the north of the town of Jupiter. The Martin County schools are all A-rated and are among the best in the state.
If Ranch Colony sounds like the place for you, you might just be right. So call the team at Frankel Realty Group to find out for sure. Together, we’ll explore the area, look at your options, and perhaps see a home in Ranch Colony that will be a home for you and your family for many years to come. We look forward to hearing from you, and to getting you settled in your new Ranch Colony home!
