The dirt is shifting and the plans are in place at Valencia Sound in Boynton Beach. Construction is underway at one of the most eagerly anticipated 55+ communities in Palm Beach County. Buyers looking for a great hotspot for their Florida retirement will soon have models to tour and a neighborhood to explore.
Valencia Sound Construction Plans
Builder GL Homes is busy finalizing roads, moving forward on the development of residential single-family homes, and executing plans for amenities and communal areas. The utilities are going in, and landscaping is underway. The elaborate and eye-catching entry is even taking shape. This new community for active adults is right off the Florida Turnpike, and it's close to State Road 7, or Route 441. GL Homes plans to complete 412 residential homes.
What to Expect from Valencia Sound
Once construction is complete, buyers will have 18 models to choose from in four separate collections. They will have between 1,583 and 3,510 square feet with two to four bedrooms and two to four bathrooms. The attached garages will house two or three cars. The largest and most luxurious homes include club rooms, master retreats, and large screened patios.
Most properties will include features such as impact-resistant windows and doors, which will be particularly welcome during hurricane season, stainless steel and gas appliances in gourmet kitchens, and tile floors. Residents will have lake views or views of the well-landscaped grounds with native plants and trees.
The amenities will be equally as impressive. Over nine acres will be dedicated to recreational and entertainment space, starting with the clubhouse, which is projected to be 39,000 square feet. Residents will enjoy a social hall as well as a restaurant and sports lounge. Plenty of multi-purpose and meeting rooms will be included so clubs and groups can meet and hold events. There’s also going to be a demonstration kitchen for residents who want to host parties and for food-focused gatherings.
The resort-style pool and patio will include a pool bar. There will be a separate lap pool and resistance pool for residents who are more concerned with cardio activity than leisurely swimming. When the grandkids visit, they’ll be able to splash around in the adjoining wading pool. In addition to tennis and pickleball courts, there will be a pro shop dedicated to those pursuits. Residents can also play bocce or enjoy walking, jogging, and biking through what will be some beautiful grounds full of water elements and greenery.
Living in Boynton Beach
One of the more desirable towns to live in for active adults, Boynton Beach provides plenty of golf, seaside fun, shopping, and cultural activities. Some of the most popular places to play golf include Quail Ridge Country Club and Indian Spring Country Club. Locals also love Delray Dunes Golf & Country Club.
If an indoor sport like shopping is more your thing, there’s plenty of that to be found in Boynton Beach as well. Residents will find it easy to shop at Boynton Town Center or Boynton Commons. Also, it’s only 15 minutes to Boca Raton, where there’s additional luxury shopping.
Nature lovers will enjoy the diversity of habitats and the ease with which they can spot animals like alligators, birds, tortoises, and deer. Close to the Valencia Sound community, both the Green Cay Nature Center and Wetlands and the Seacrest Scrub Nature Preserve offer picturesque settings and peaceful trails. Living in Boynton Beach also means you’re just a few minutes from the cool, blue Atlantic Ocean. The closest beaches are Gulfstream Park and Atlantic Dunes Park.
For art and culture, Boynton Beach residents enjoy the downtown arts district. It includes public art like murals, exhibitions, and projects that the community is welcome to help create. More than 80 works of art are on display throughout the city. The Cornell Art Museum at Old School Square is five minutes away in Delray Beach, and the building that houses it is an old schoolhouse that was built in 1913.
Food and nightlife is also easy to find. Hurricane Alley has great seafood and a raw bar that locals love. There’s also a dog menu. The Diner is a perfect place for breakfast or a burger. And Elmo’s Rock Bar and Grill is the place to be for music, karaoke, and general tomfoolery.
