There’s no question that our beautiful city of St. Augustine has an abundance of communities to choose from, but what makes some of them special? The Mediterranean-style community of Palencia in St. Johns County is one of these charming properties we love.
Palencia has been intricately planned with its beautifully designed homes and abundance of amenities along the Intracoastal Waterway. In addition to its charming setting, Palencia has a bustling town center so you can walk or bike to shop or grab a cup of joe over the weekend.
In Palencia, there’s also something for everyone. Whether you are newlyweds looking for a small starter home, single and wanting a low-maintenance townhome, or searching for a next generation home so even your parents can move in with the family, Palencia has it!
This 2,350-acre master-planned community also has a special place for the environment. Palencia has designed its homes with environmental integrity, and offers more than 33 acres of parks, trails and open areas, and over 300 acres of conservation areas.
Palencia isn’t lacking amenities either. The Palencia Club boasts 33,000 square feet of clubhouse space with dining, shopping and banquet facilities including a member’s dining room, informal bar and grill, and a public café with outdoor seating for those sunny Florida days.
For the avid golfer in the family, you won’t have to venture far for a day on the links. Enjoy a 72-par, 18-hole Championship Arthur Hills golf course with full-service pro shop.
We know not everyone loves putting greens and sand traps, but don’t worry – Palencia also suits the rest of the sport and outdoor enthusiasts with its three baseball diamonds, soccer field, basketball court, children’s “pirate” playground, 8 miles of multi-use paths, ten lighted hydro-grid clay tennis courts, state-of-the-art fitness center with classes, and family picnic pavilion.
Okay… I think we’ve made our case that Palencia is a great place to live but what about the surrounding area? St. Johns County offers one of the best school districts in the entire state. You’ll be a hop, skip or jump away from the beauty and charm of historic St. Augustine which will satisfy all your shopping and dining needs. Not enough? Head on over to the St. Augustine outlets for some discounted designer shopping.
We’d love to bring you by Palencia and introduce you to this wonderful development – another one of St. John County’s communities bringing people together and their dreams to life!
