Customize Your Steeplechase Home As You Like It
The beauty of homes for sale in Steeplechase is that the lots are so large, you’ll be able to customize your home’s luxury amenities any way you wish. You’ll have plenty of room to add beautiful landscaping, perhaps your own private swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts or even a water feature. Many Steeplechase residents have chosen to add lanais, pool decks, guest houses, summer kitchens, balconies and garage parking for multiple vehicles. You might also consider a putting green, arbor, pergola, gazebo, playground or flower garden. Your choices are really unlimited.
There are 325 single family homes in Steeplechase, all of them custom. Home sizes range from around 2,500 to 7,000 square feet of luxury living space with no detail or expense spared in the luxurious building materials, architectural styles, and sophisticated appointments you will find in them. Prices vary from approximately $500,000 for a three bedroom, two bath home; to nearly $3 million for a six bedroom, five bath residence.
The community does feature wide, tree-lined sidewalks for strolling, biking and jogging trails and picnic areas. What you will not see are clubhouses, dining venues, spas or golf courses, but many private golf clubs in the local area do offer annual or other memberships to non-residents. So 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. But you may not miss having these amenities as part and parcel of your community, because the value and beauty you will find in Steeplechase homes for sale may just outweigh your desire to have every amenity waiting at your front door.
A touch of whimsy found throughout Steeplechase are the street names in the community which have been so named for legendary thoroughbred race horses. So 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 lies 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. Let’s ride together to the finish line — a successful real estate transaction, and your move into your new Steeplechase home. Call us today.
