I'd like to help you buy a beautiful home by the beach in Palm Coast, Florida. The lovely Palm Coast area is divided into two parts: the City of Palm Coast (west of the intracoastal waterway), and the Beachside (east of the waterway). The area has a growing number of gated communities. On the ocean or on the river, golf course or lake, condo, townhome or single family, tell me what you want and I will find it for you!

About the Area

The 22-mile stretch of oceanfront and oceanside land in Flagler County that borders St. John’s County to the north and Volusia County to the south is the only property on the east coast of Florida that has not been fully developed. It has been discovered, however, and there’s a great deal of interest and activity in the area. In recent years, Flagler County has been the fastest-growing county in the United States.This area has 22 miles of bicycle paths, scenic ocean views, and several beautiful state and local parks. The highway alongside it, Route A1A, has been designated a “scenic highway” by the federal government. The prestigious Hammock area, located along this route, has many beautiful gated communities and homes, including two first-class oceanfront golf courses. One of the few coastal areas not in a metropolis, there is no traffic congestion. However, the historic and oldest city in America, St. Augustine, is only 20 miles to the north, and popular Daytona Beach is 30 miles to the south.

Yes, the lovely city of Palm Coast and its beaches have been discovered. But unlike the cities in South Florida, it is not wall-to-wall people and shops. There’s still room for you to make it your piece of paradise too.
