Loxahatchee River homes over $1 million: 37 on the market
July 28, 2015 | Richard Sites
Loxahatchee River homes in Jupiter and Tequesta offer some of the finest lifestyles this area has to offer. Of course, other locations like the Intracoastal, Jupiter Inlet Colony and Admirals Cove each offer waterfront living but they are different than those along the river.
The Loxahatchee River comes in through the Jupiter Inlet, passes the lighthouse and goes under the U.S. 1 bridge then the Alternate A-1-A bridge, which is fixed but quite tall. The bridge on U.S. 1 is a drawbridge so there is not a height restriction here.
Once past the bridges, the river splits into 3 forks: the Northwest, the North and the Southwest. The Southwest is the shortest and the Northwest is the longest since it reaches all the way northward into Jonathan Dickinson Park.
This area was platted out years and years ago so the properties can be quite large, up to 5 acres. Some of the homes that have sold in the $4 million dollar range on Pennock Point are on lots slightly bigger than 1 acre.
Currently, there are 37 riverfront homes for sale with a median price of $529 per square foot or about $2.5 million. See all the homes listed for sale here.
When searching for the right waterfront property, the phrase you most often here is one which describes the view. People like “wide” or “long” views not the short ones found on some of the streets in the Islands of Jupiter or some of the canals off Center Street.
The long views can have commanding and dramatic views eastward to the lighthouse and the ocean. The wide views look across the river, north or south, to the opposite shore.
Most of the homes have docks with lifts capable of hoisting about 15,000 lbs. and homeowners keep boats to around 30 feet on them. This means any afternoon you want to take a cruise or run out to the ocean, just push a button to lower the boat, step in a you are on your way.
There are few things that can compare with the waterfront at the end of the day when seen from a boat.
