Years before we arrived in Northeast Florida, a wild and beautiful canopy of Moss-draped Oaks bordered the Intracoastal Waterway. In 1791 Teresa Hill Marshall claimed a 500-acre Spanish land grant that is now the exceptional community of Palencia.
Palencia is located just north of historic St. Augustine, and about 20 minutes south of Jacksonville, a major metropolitan city in Northeast Florida. With a climate that is comprised of three seasons, and just 15 min. to some of finest beaches on the Atlantic coast, Palencia boasts award winning golf and tennis, a lush natural landscape, and a community of residents who embrace a special lifestyle.
Fine restaurants are nearby, and local shopping and even a Starbucks are a stone's throw away. Great schools are within a few minutes, and a brand new elementary school will be opening in the fall of 2012 for the next school year within Palencia.
A rare combination of great master-planning and natural environment is the backdrop for homes ranging in size from just under 2000 square feet to upwards of 10,000 square feet. Each community is interconnected by abundant trails, and boardwalks, as well as tree-lined parks.
The championship Arthur Hills-designed golf course winds through the beautiful Southern terrain that boasts, oak hammocks, a promontory with magnificent views of the Tolomato River, and at the Palencia Village near the 9th and 18th greens is a 30,000 square foot clubhouse with a members-only formal dining room, pro-shop, & cafe.
