Located west of Florida’s newest city (in 2017), Westlake, we consider the area to be somewhat unique for Palm Beach County. Five acres per lot is the least you can come by out here. Many are ten, some twenty, and many are many more.
Life out here has it’s pros and cons. Our favorite aspect has always been the abundance of wildlife, particularly owls. However, accepting that “nature happens,” can be difficult at times.
The huge Minto development to our east – the City of Westlake – has been steadily building and is due to have a massive amount of residential and commercial development. All of this construction, along with Arden directly to our south, has been driving more and more wildlife our way, west of Westlake.
Also slated for development is the smaller tract of farmland that lies in between Westlake and the remaining private streets to the west, as well as the old Santa Rosa Groves. But right now, the Westlake project is making the most impact. Hence the name West of Westlake. Plus, it just sounds better than West of GL Homes or North of Arden, which technically, we are, as well as east of the L-8 or south of the old Santa Rosa Groves.
