Why Long Lake Estates ?

A private, unique community

Long Lake Estates is one of a few, select communities in Boca with one acre plus lots and custom-built, multi-million dollar homes.  Only 125 homes grace the tree-lined streets, offering the space and privacy for a leisurely stroll, bike ride with the kids or walking the dog.

Compare other homes

8235 Twin Lake is an excellent value.  Fully hurricane impact, an interior lot with lake fed irrigation and lake view.  Priced close to land value.  This is a unique offering when compared to properties on quarter acre lots. With room to accomodate a large expansion OR consider new construction in the future.


What if I still want a Club atmosphere?

Did you know you can join other clubs in the area without owning a home there?  Most club communities require an upfront, non-refundable equity membership fee which can range anywhere from $30,000 to  $100,000 + upfront.  At Long Lake Estates there is NO EQUITY MEMBERSHIP.  This gives you more flexibility.  

 

Buying a home in Florida - things to know.

Why are homes in other communities on such small lots?

Most homes in Florida are built on very small lots (0.25 to 0.33 acres) . Buildings sit ten to fifteen feet from each other.  You have very little outdoor space with very little privacy. 

Why doesn't Long Lake have upfront costs and equity membership?

Most gated club communities require you to pay upfront equity membership.  Ranges can be from $30,000 to $100,000, NOT refundable.  Long Lake does not have a club community but this property offers you a very large deep water pool which is not standard in newer communities along with a soccer-field-size, manicured yard.

What about resale?

Florida is full of cookie-cutter properties and the developers keep building more and more.  You can protect the value of your investment based on the land alone with this property. If you are considering a purchase in a new development, keep in mind that many more homes, just like yours, are going to be built on quarter acre lots.   In a year or two you could be competing with new construction in the same or nearby community !!  When you sell the property, you will not have to forfeit any equity membership as with sales in other communities.

Future flexibility

The value at 8235 Twin Lake combines one acre land value with a fully turn key home equipped with Hurricane Impact Windows thru-out.  AND enough space to expand the current 3800 sq ft structure OR to build new at somepoint in the future.  

Hidden costs in new development construction?

Some new communities are building hundreds of new homes!  These newer homes will be your competition at resale time. Will new construction noise be part of your new lifestyle as the developer builds out the rest of the community?  And...should you want a pool you can actually swim in, one which is deeper than the standard four foot depth the development offers as standard, you will have to pay an extra $30-$40,000 !

AND when the developer of a large community is finished building , they stop subsidizing the HOA, so monthly costs can go up.  Long Lake Estates is an established community with HOA fees that have been $410 per month for the past decade.
