Palm Beach Homes For Sale

For those looking for Gilded Age elegance, Palm Beach may be the place for you. Separated from the mainland by Lake Worth, Palm Beach with its old-world charm is one of the most affluent towns in the world. The history of Palm Beach is matched by its white sand beaches that offer a variety of outdoor recreations and charming boutiques that line the world-famous Worth Avenue.  

Whether you feel more at home in Greco Roman mansions, contemporary Palm Beach apartments or upscale Palm Beach condos, Palm Beach real estate has something perfect for you.

Tropical landscaping is a feature of many Palm Beach homes, helping to blend them seamlessly into the natural surroundings.

This concern to preserve the beauty of Palm Beach is further enhanced by a historic preservation program and strict zoning laws, which prohibit commercial properties and condominiums from being built in specific areas such as North Palm Beach. Making it a particularly attractive area for those seeking Palm Beach homes for sale that make use of the island's beachfront beauty.
