West Palm Beach Homes for Sale

west palm beach homesIn so many ways, beautiful West Palm Beach is truly the heart of the Palm Beaches. Geographically, it rests at the center of it all: at the crest of Florida’s curving east coast, facing the turquoise waters of the Intracoastal Waterway, and abutting the most verdant portion of the Everglades. Culturally and demographically, Palm Beach County revolves around West Palm Beach as well: here resides the County Seat, the largest “downtown” area within the county, and the largest population. Everyone wants to live in West Palm Beach, and it’s no wonder: between the gorgeous natural topography of this coastal metropolis and the myriad of events and exciting things to do, residents of West Palm Beach have truly won the lottery.

 
Life in the Palm Beaches begins on Clematis Street. This hopping stretch of downtown offers a host of chic new restaurants, bars, shops, cafes, and galleries, all pouring out onto a bustling park that faces the water. So much takes place in this stretch of land. During the winter months, a massive green market takes over the park and street, inviting local farmers and artisans to sell showcase their wares in a kid-friendly, dog-friendly, pedestrian-friendly setting. In October, Moonfest hits: the coolest, scariest, and most exhilarating Halloween block party that Florida has ever known. In May? Enter Sunfest: the largest waterfront music festival in the world!

But that’s just Clematis Street: meander your way even a little ways beyond and you find CityPlace – an upscale shopping and dining “live, work, play” community with movie theater, bowling alley, and performing arts center embedded therein. Downtown plays host to the Norton Art Museum, home to a host of thoughtful and whimsical contemporary art displays as well as several traveling installations. And across the water rests White Hall, the home of Henry Flagler, a true pioneer of the Florida Railroad. White Hall is a must-visit for both residents and guests of the Palm Beaches: tour-able 6 days a week, this unique visit imbues guests with a true sense of what turn-of-the-century Florida was really like, and what living in the “Gilded Age” must have felt like. For more family-friendly outings, visit Dreyer Park. Here, visitors can take advantage of miles of trails, playground equipment, soccer fields, a dog park, and so much more. Dreyer Park is also home to West Palm Beach’s very own zoo and science museum and aquarium! All pay tribute to the splendid native flora and fauna of the area and make for a charming day out with the family.

The charm and character of West Palm Beach is undeniable, and nowhere is this truer than in the neighborhoods that its residents call home. North of the downtown area, find yourself in Northwood Village. Many of the homes in Northwood Village date back to the 1910s and 1920s when West Palm Beach was first emerging. The splendid architecture herein has been preserved for decades, making each home unique, artistic, and historical in its own right. A similar feeling is evinced in Flamingo Park, just south of downtown West Palm.

This is another historical neighborhood in the Palm Beaches that bestows upon both residents and visitors a deep sense of peace and natural beauty. Westward, communities like Bear Lakes Country Club offer residents a respite from the hubbub downtown. Here, 18-holes of golf, beautiful community swimming pools, a luxurious and refined country club, and immaculate and sprawling single-family homes await residents. No matter where you choose to lay down roots in this vibrant and sprawling metropolis, endless excitement and possibilities await!
