Palm Beach - An Island Of Luxury Off the coast of Palm Beach County is the Island of Palm Beach. The Island is both an international and seasonal community with residents coming from around the world. You may hear nearly any language being spoken during the season, which runs from November to April. Many of the residents of arrive with mega-yachts from Europe or New England to winter in the perfect South Florida weather. The Island has waterfront property on the east facing the Atlantic Ocean and on the west-facing the Intracoastal Waterway. The Town of Palm Beach as a long and storied history involving celebrities, politicians, and other "old money" types and captains of industry. The shops along Worth Avenue are internationally known as are those on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan or Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills and business is conducted in the same discreet manner. Hushed tones are the order of day unless you are dining outside at a "see & be seen" bistro. Homes for sale in Palm Beach range from the more modest $ 1,000,000 to $ 3,000,000 homes on the interior of the island to the mega-mansions along the Atlantic oceanfront on lots several acres in size and may contain compounds of 4 to 5 homes. These estates may be priced into the tens of millions and names like Rush Limbaugh, Jimmy Buffett, Rod Stewart and John Lennon have called these oceanfront estates home. There are two private clubs on the island, the Everglades Club and the Palm Beach Country Club. The most famous hotel is, of course, The Breakers. And Donald Trump has his private club, Mar A Lago, on the southern portion of Island. When looking for a home,you may need to be prepared to provide sufficient financial documentation to prove you are capable of purchasing the home you're considering. Many estates of this size require extensive, pre-qualification before a showing can be scheduled. But don't be dissuaded if you wish to see what's available; these exquisite homes are some of the finest in the world and an expedient, private showing is just a phone call away.
