• Palencia


Palencia is an upscale, golf community tucked along the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway south of Jacksonville and north of St. Augustine. An award-winning master-planned community, Palencia offers inviting amenities including golf, tennis, swimming, exercise and fine dining, as well as a traditional town center, and preserve lands. Housing options range from modest condominiums and low-maintenance town homes to multi-million dollar luxury estate homes.  


The 2,350-acre master-planned community offers a full-spectrum of home sites plus ancillary retail and office opportunities along with more than 33 acres of parks, trails and open areas. Anchoring the community is a 40-acre Village Center and The Palencia Club, featuring a 33,000 square foot clubhouse and spectacular Arthur Hills-designed championship golf course.

The captivating natural beauty of this land was originally discovered by Juan Ponce de Leon nearly 500 years ago when he explored it and named the region "Pascua de Florida". Woven into this stunning natural setting along the west bank of Florida's Intracoastal Waterway are exquisitely designed homes; an abundance of amenities; and a bustling town center. Designed with environmental integrity and rich architectural detailing, Palencia has quickly captured the hearts and minds of discerning homebuyers.
