Palma Vista is a gated community in West Orlando just off the Florida Turnpike. Is easily accessible off of West Pointe Blvd. just minutes to shops and restaurants along S. Hiawassee Rd and the MetroWest Golf Club.
The homes in Palma Vista were built between 1992 and 2003 although some have been built as recently as 2008. These homes feature 4 to 6 bedrooms, 3 to 6 bathrooms, and layouts from 2900 ft.² to over 4500 ft.². Homes along Rost Dr., Saint Stephen’s Ct., and St. Ignatius Ct. all border the MetroWest golf course. The Bermuda Dunes apartments are to the north, St. Andrew’s non-gated community to the west, the Florida Turnpike to the south, and several smaller residential neighborhoods to the east.
Nearly every home has a backyard swimming pool, covered lanai, and optional hot tub. Most homes are luxurious and boast a private oasis. And layouts provide open floor plans, high ceilings, and two-story designs. Most homes have one if not two master suites upstairs and one master or standard bedroom downstairs. Most master suites have at least five-piece bathrooms and walk-in closets.
This luxury, gated community has just one entrance off of West Pointe Blvd. immediately south of the Metro West elementary school. This collection of just under 200 homes feature some of the largest luxury properties in the Orlando area. The neighborhood has seen a stable real estate market over the last decade. It maintains active listings at about 6% of the community, a stable number. Homes retain their value, and for the size, lot size, and location, these are actually pretty affordable properties.
Pride of ownership is evident in nearly every home and the community as well cared for. Due to the age of some of the older homes, remodeling and renovations have created updated kitchens, bathrooms, new flooring, and paint throughout.
Palma Vista has its own homeowner’s association and fees are currently about $180 per month. (HOA fees were at the time of this post so check with current listings on exact association fees). These fees cover any common area maintenance, gate maintenance, and management. Most homes have their own backyard swimming pool so a community swimming pool and clubhouse is not necessary.
