BOYNTON BEACH – Home sales in the communities of Valencia Pointe and Valencia Reserve in Boynton Beach show no signs of slowing as active adults continue to be attracted to the best new home value in Palm Beach County, the exceptional lifestyle and the extraordinary recreational facilities found here. Increased demand led G.L. Homes to introduce Valencia Reserve, the newest of the Valencia communities in Boynton Beach. Now is the time for active adults to visit these two communities as only 26 homesites remain in Valencia Pointe, and more than 125 homes have sold in Valencia Reserve, since the sales center opened earlier this year.
“The Valencia communities in Boynton Beach are the top active adult communities in South Florida,” Theresa Fowler, vice president and project manager for G.L. Homes at Valencia Reserve and Valencia Pointe. “Our communities are ideal for homebuyers from the northeast who want to buy a home in Florida, but only if the price and product is right. Locally, we appeal to residents of country club communities who want to downsize. We are also seeing those buyers who were previously priced out of the market but can now afford a new home due to the lower prices and lower mortgage rates.”
Homes in Valencia Pointe and Valencia Reserve are designed especially for active adults and are adorned with the finest amenities that will impress even the most discriminating buyer. Homes feature an upgraded kitchen with granite countertops in a choice of designer colors, modern stainless steel appliances, a built-in pantry, wood cabinets with above-cabinet crown molding, glass doors and lighting above and under the cabinets. Other premium amenities found in each home include ceramic tile throughout the main living areas, and a Roman cultured marble tub and a separate glass-enclosed shower in the master bathroom.
Valencia Reserve features homes in three collections and offers 16 unique floorplans ranging in size from 1,303 to 2,861 air-conditioned square feet of living space and featuring two to four bedrooms, two to three bathrooms, and a two- or three-car garage. Homes are priced from the mid $200,000s to more than $500,000.
Valencia Pointe homes range in size from 1,730 to 2,396 air-conditioned square feet of living space and offer two to three bedrooms, two to two-and-a-half bathrooms and a two-car garage. These homes are priced at an incredible new home value in the mid $300,000s.
“What also attracts new homebuyers everyday to our Valencia communities are the fun-filled planned activities and recreational amenities that keep our residents as busy as they want to be,” said Fowler.
Valencia communities invite ample opportunities for socializing and forging lifelong friendships. The centerpiece of Valencia Pointe and soon to be at Valencia Reserve is the magnificent clubhouse with a multitude of rooms for classes and clubs. Also impressive at the clubhouse is the grand ballroom that hosts Broadway style performances and special galas. There is a fully equipped fitness center offering classes, modern cardiovascular and conditioning machines and personal trainers.
