Jupiter Island Real Estate Offers Privacy and So Much More…

Each area of our Platinum Coast offers unique amenities and lifestyle. For those who crave privacy, 17-mile long Jupiter Island is the ultimate. Consisting of 1,600+ acres of land, many which have been set aside as nature and wildlife preserves, the town has always been dedicated to preserving the environment’s exceptional beauty, with strict low-density zoning.

Population is 820 year ‘round, with a seasonal swell to 2,000, and there are approximately 450 homes on the Island. One and two-acre zoning is the norm for single family homes, with many estates spanning several acres. No high rises or multi-family dwellings are allowed. Properties on Jupiter Island range from a beach cottage at the North End, interior homes near the Jupiter Island Club, magnificent estates on the blue waters of the Intracoastal, to custom, oceanfront estates on the South End, some of which are on 5+ acre lots, with a few even stretching from Ocean to Intracoastal, offering the best of both worlds. Homes are often well shielded from the public, hidden behind lavish landscape, hedges, and Banyan trees.

We asked Jupiter Island experts Ken & Kandyce Meierling, principals of Engel Volkers Jupiter, to share their insight:

Q: How many homesites have both ocean & intracoastal?

A: “Fewer and fewer homesites stretch from ocean to intracoastal, with properties having been broken up and subdivided over the years. The few properties which extend from Intracoastal to Ocean either have beach access or a very few have a beach cottage on the sand, while some custom estates on the Ocean have access to a boat dock on the Intracoastal. Only very few estates actually offer a substantial presence on the Intracoastal and the Ocean.”

Q: What are the most desirable outdoor space amenities buyers look for?

A: “Exterior features include custom docks with personal boat lifts, resort-style swimming pools, outdoor kitchens and fire pits, tennis courts. putting greens, manicured lawns with privacy hedges, lush landscaping, secluded walkways and gardens, entertaining venues.”

Homeowners appreciate the Town of Jupiter Island’s fierce protection of privacy and land preservation.  With limited inventory, its easy to see why Jupiter Island is the ultimate Florida residence location for those who crave privacy and natural beauty.
