Welcome to Ocean Palms, a private gated community that runs along the Intracoastal waterway with a 1,000 foot buffer between A1A and the community itself. Just 2 blocks from Butler Beach, which has a dedicated beach walkover, in St. Augustine, Ocean Palms features a variety of homes. With over 40 acres of dedicated conservation areas including 8 lakes, Ocean Palms was thoughtfully designed to blend everyday living with the beauty of nature. Residents of Ocean Palms enjoy a colorful array of birds, deer, turtles, rabbits, and other critters that all coexist peacefully with the humans who live here.
Started by Palmetto Homes in the late 1990’s, Ocean Palms features 3 different types of living opportunities. The concrete block patio homes are homes with zero lot lines that are perfect for seasonal homeowners or those who do not wish to take care of their own lawns. Lawn care is provided by the HOA of Ocean Palms.
Single family homes have larger lots and more square footage than the patio homes and offer more privacy. Many of these homes sit on lakes or back up to the preserve areas of Ocean Palms. Homeowners are responsible for their own lawn care. The estate homes are located at the back of the neighborhood and are nestled right up against the Intracoastal Waterway. Many have private boat docks. Spectacular sunsets can be enjoyed daily from these homes!
Ocean Palms community amenities include a fishing dock on the Intracoastal waterway – complete with a cleaning table! Don’t fish? You can still enjoy the spectacular sunset views each evening and the Ocean Palms neighborhood gatherings monthly at the Pier. There is a lovely community park, a tot lot, an unheated pool and wading pool, and a fabulous picnic pavilion for all to enjoy.
This community provides a wonderful lifestyle for its owners! (I can testify to that because I live here!)
