Palm Beach real estate is comprised of gated oceanfront mansions, Mediterranean – inspired residential compounds, and luxurious waterfront condos.  Located on a 16-mile long island with the Intracoastal Waterway serving as a barrier between its neighboring city of West Palm Beach, and the Atlantic Ocean gently resting on the eastern side. Home prices in Palm Beach range from $150,000 for a one bedroom efficiency to more than $70 million for an expansive estate with waterfront views.Annual events such as the Palm Beach Heart Ball at The Breaker or the Diamond Centennial American Red Cross Ball at Mar-a-Lago guarantee a fabulous social evening and generate a tremendous amount of money for the organizations. Most galas take place in the winter months, as many homeowners are part-time residents or “snowbirds.” 

 

Palm Beach County stretches from Florida’s Atlantic coast into the state’s rural center and includes the northern edge of the Everglades national park. Its coastline has numerous golf courses and sandy beaches. Industrialist Henry Flagler’s grand 1902 mansion in the town of Palm Beach is now a museum.
