This area north of downtown is known for its beauty, the Fort Mose Historic State Park along the Tolomato River, as well as the St. Augustine Airport. Many neighborhoods are situated in this area. Just north of the Stokes Landing Conservation Area a new development took shape during the past few years. The pristine community of Palencia is offering a wide selection of newly designed single-family homes. But Palencia’s location isn’t the only thing that makes it special. This one-of-a-kind community is anchored by The Palencia Club, featuring a 33,000 square foot clubhouse and Arthur Hills-designed championship golf course.
Residents have full use of Palencia’s world-class amenities that include 8 tennis courts, 4 swimming pools, a state-of-the-art fitness center, spa services, soccer and baseball fields and a regulation-sized basketball court. Families with children enjoy the Pirate Playground, Family Picnic Pavilion and eight miles of nature trails.
Palencia features a wide variety of residences, from small condominiums, unique live/work condominiums, and attached townhouses to single family homes and luxury estate homes. Developed to be a low-density community with an emphasis on preservation, Palencia encompasses 2,325 acres and is expected to include no more than 2,200 homes at build-out.
For those who like to bike, or simply unwind by walking through nature trails and green spaces, the mile-long Tolomato River Boardwalk connects the 30-acre neighborhood park system with Intracoastal island preserves. Residents can fish for tarpon, reds and sea trout from the community-maintained dock.
