Admirals Cove: New listing on Captains Way

Admirals Cove, Jupiter’s premier waterfront country club, offers a wide variety of homes for sale.  In addition to estate homes to $9 million, several associations offer more modest accommodations priced under $1 million.

A new home was listed in Captains Way for just under $1 million or $363 per square foot.  Most other listings in Captains Way are priced in the $250-$300 per foot range.

Admirals Cove, luxury waterfront properties in Jupiter, FL (219)

Captains Way, Spyglass and Waterside offer 2 story, stacked units called villas or Harbor Homes.  Other communities call this living arrangement different names like Carriage Houses.

The concept is that there are 4 units per building, 2 on the ground floor and 2 on the top floor.  In Admirals Cove, many of these top units have private elevators.

This new listing is on the first floor and features nearly 2,800 square feet of living space and is located on the water. The location would have a view similar to the one in the photo above.  Homes in Captains Way, like most of the original Admirals Cove homes, were built in the late 1980’s although many have been updated through the years.

Homes have docks and can handle boats to about 30 feet.  So, a Captains Way location might appeal to you if you want to be close to the clubhouse, marina and tennis courts and to keep your boat behind your house.  Fishing is easy since the Jupiter Inlet is about a 10 minute ride north in the Intracoastal Waterway and provides ocean access.

Like most of our exclusive clubs, membership is mandatory in Admirals Cove and transfers with the sale of the home.  This house has a membership that will cost you $110,000.  If  you want to upgrade to a full golf, that is one option but you cannot downgrade to a lesser membership.

Jonathan’s Landing, on the north side of Admirals Cove, is the only Jupiter club where membership is optional and also open to non-residents.

The cost of a membership is usually not an issue, but before buying in a club you should consider if you really want an active club scene or a more sedate and understated atmosphere.  Clubs like Admirals Cove and BallenIsles offer extensive and active calendars with something for everyone in the family from the classic Easter Egg Hunts to the Blessing of the Fleet.  Each club has its own personality and draws residents from select areas of the country so finding the proper fit for your family is crucial.

If you are looking at clubs in this area, let’s talk about the differences between them and also between a golf club and a country club.  Unlike most agents, I have lived here 25 years and been in all the local clubs.  Contact me directly at 561-762-4073 or at
