Property description

Originally built in the 1940's and recently renovated Casa Palma is set in the heart of West Palm Beach's coveted Historic District 'El Cid', just one block from the Intracoastal Waterway. This charming home is within a few minutes of all the major attractions of the Palm Beach area and walking distance to downtown along the beautiful 'Flagler Drive' and only 5 minutes from the Palm Beach International Airport.

Relax and enjoy the 'southern exposed' heated pool and spa nestled amongst the lush tropical garden featuring a gorgeous Traveller's Palm and a massive Ficus Hedge providing complete privacy. Casa Palma offers all the modern amenities you'd expect from a luxurious home including Wifi internet, cable TV, laundry and a one car garage. The gourmet kitchen is fully equipped and a chef's delight. Each bedroom is tastefully decorated with authentic Palm Beach charm. The sun lit Florida room opens onto a fabulous Coquina Stone deck with a lovely pergola that is perfect for a nice dinner 'al fresco' or just relaxing by the pool with a glass of wine and a good book. Enjoy the outdoor gas grill and treat your friends with your catch of the day.

You will be enchanted by the elegant comfort and convenient location of this lovely home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Currently living in Toronto and after just one visit to Palm Beach, Casa Palma just had to be ours to share! OWNER OPERATED | NO THIRD PARTY AGENCIES

Why the Owner Chose West Palm Beach:
First off Casa Palma is simply gorgeous then the El Cid neighborhood is fabulous and Palm Beach has the most beautiful clear water of all of Southeast Florida plus during the peak season Palm Beach still feels like a quaint little Oceanside Gem but with it's world renown 'Worth Avenue' shopping at your finger tips. The area restaurants are amazing offering some of the finest formal dining in the country or the most casual 'flip flops and T-Shirt' waterfront watering holes in existence.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The weather is truly stunning. From the moment you arrive you will feel the healthy effects of the Sun's warm rays, the Atlantic ocean's amazing deep blue waters and it's exotic tropical breeze.
