ADMIRALS COVE HOMES FOR SALE: BE WARY OF THIS ONE FEATURE
November 26, 2016 | Richard Sites
Recently, I wrote a post called WHAT DIFFERENCE CAN 27 FEET MAKE? This difference being the height of a fixed bridge which limits the size of the boat you can bring to and keep at a dock on a property.
Homes on the Loxahatchee River can be priced in the millions but are still limited in the size of boat they can keep behind their home because the bridge to get out to the ocean is 27 feet high. There’s a home for sale for $14.2 million on Pennock Point but they cannot have a sport fishing boat with a tall tower unless they keep the boat on the other side of the bridge.
Homes on Sawfish Bay Colony or Yacht Club Estates have direct ocean access without the limiting feature of the fixed bridge. But, in Admirals Cove there’s a similar situation.
Two homes for sale in Admirals Cove are on Schooner Lane. One is listed at $6.5 million and the other one is priced at $7.9 million, although the $7.9 million house is temporarily off the market. But both of these homes are limited by the fact that the ocean access is restricted by a fixed bridge, in fact two fix bridges.
One bridge is the cart path way that goes from the 18th fairway to the 18th green (above). The other is the bridge on Admirals Cove Boulevard (below).
These are low bridges so the size of the boat you can keep behind them will be very limited. Homes on most other streets in Admirals do not have this limitation.
Many homes for sale in Admirals attract buyers specifically because there is space, and height, to keep a large boat behind the house.
The Problem With Searching the Internet
Homes for sale may not indicate the fixed bridge problem and could say “Ocean Access” which, technically is true. But this could still be a big problem if you have a tall boat. So searching the Internet could be a waste of time.
The best solution is to find an experienced agent, one who knows the Admirals Cove layout and can find the perfect home for you. Then, keep notes and pictures of the houses you find in Evernote.
