A new 55+ community in Palm Beach Gardens is getting a lot of attention lately, and it’s easy to see why. Regency at Avenir is setting a pretty high standard for active adult living in an area known for its beaches, golf, and shopping.
Buyers looking at homes for sale in Palm Beach County won’t want to miss the homes and amenities that are expected in this lifestyle-oriented neighborhood. It’s less than half an hour from West Palm Beach, and it’s a short drive from Interstate 95 and the Florida Turnpike.
Amenities With a Focus on Community
In Regency at Avenir’s clubhouse and community spaces, neighbors will be able to get together for classes, activities, and special events. The community will have a full-time lifestyle director on staff to facilitate exercise classes and day trips. Residents can expect card tournaments, cocktail parties, dinner clubs, pickleball tournaments, and tennis matches.
The amenities planned for Regency at Avenir include a fitness center with the latest strength training and cardio equipment as well as a yoga studio where practitioners of all skill levels will be welcome. Residents can also get together in the art studio for drawing and painting, and there will be a ballroom and a cafe. An outdoor amphitheater will be a central gathering spot, and residents will also have a pool and a patio as well as pickleball and tennis courts.
Single-Family Homes in Diverse Models
Plans call for 469 single-family new construction homes. The builder has not released any specifics about floor plans yet, but buyers can expect 10 models to choose from. Most properties will have between 1,800 and 2,800 square feet. They will embrace open floor plans, offer gourmet kitchens, and provide spacious master suites in single-story homes. Hundreds of design options will be available to buyers when it’s time to choose fixtures, flooring, paint colors, and finishes.
The community expects to open in the spring of 2020, at which time potential buyers will have an opportunity to tour the homesites and preview some model homes and floor plans.
Plans Include Conservation
The community has a desirable location in the middle of Palm Beach Gardens, a popular region for seasonal snowbirds as well as full-time residents who enjoy a Florida retirement with year-round sunshine and outdoor recreation. Regency at Avenir will be part of the new master-planned community of Avenir along Northlake Boulevard.
This is intended to be a large-scale, mixed-use project. According to current plans, more than 2,400 acres of the land designated to this project will be set aside for conservation and preservation. This will provide some natural flora and fauna for residents to enjoy while biking and walking through Avenir.
