If nothing else, Boca Raton and its sister city Delray Beach offer high-end home buyers a compelling variety of lifestyles. It ranges from beautiful country clubs with pristine private golf courses, in-community five-star dining, resort-like clubhouse settings, sports amenities second to none, 24/7/365 operational security, and more. Also, a broad category offers everything country clubs do, without the golf and heavy equity fees, often focusing on tennis and pickleball. Then there's Delray Beach's Foxe Chase, which offers top-class security services but none of the bells and whistles described above. Yet Homes For sale in Foxe Chase rank up there with the most modern and glitzy options like St Andrews and Addison Reserve (country clubs) and Seven Bridges (A GL Homes "other category" development). So, what's its secret? To find out, read on.
Leading Boca Raton and Delray Beach realtors hail Foxe Chase as South Palm Beach County's most eastern community. They point out that it's a community centered on forty-three luxury estate homes, all on one-acre lots. Indeed, Foxe Chase in Delray Beach is an extraordinary community, situated three miles from white sand beaches, fantastic shopping, and more than two hundred restaurants on Atlantic Avenue Delray and downtown Boca Raton. In addition, these unique residences enjoy one day-and-night guardhouse entry on Germantown Road between Linton Road and Congress Avenue. Undoubtedly the emphasis on space, unsurpassed privacy, and natural beauty give Foxe Chase its distinctive qualities. This feature combination sets the neighborhood apart from even the most applauded amenity-centric prestige developments. For example, Toll Brothers' Azura and Royal Palm Polo provide mainly one-third to max half-acre lots, nowhere near Foxe Chase's 8000 sq. ft. of space.
Residents and visitors cannot miss a massive serene lake, cascading waterfalls, wooded landscapes, and expansive green spaces that embrace the designer homes' landscaped driveways. Everything about it underlines a sense of class and comfort. However, it doesn't mean you can only buy mansions here. The single-family residences range between 4000 and 10,000 square feet - ranches, Tuscan, contemporary, and Meditterenian (to name a few) characterize the community. Homeowners take advantage of lakeside views or the adjacent Delaire links - arguably the most picturesque of all the country clubs. Some have been heard describing Foxe Chase as winding streets through "the most peaceful place on the Earth."
If you're wondering, a few communities compete on the same large estate platform - Horseshoe Acres is one; Le Lac and Fieldbrook Estates are also impressive. However, these competitors are substantially more west of Foxe Chase. Thus, they’re further from the ocean and the action arenas east of the I 95.
Children in the community attend A-rated schools, including Orchard View or Morikami Elementary, Omni Middle School, and Spanish River High School (i.e., all A-rated) - see below. HOA fees at around $627 monthly benefit from having no extra amenities to look after. Finally, some homeowners feature helipads for their private 'copters, which tells you something about your neighbors if you buy here. So, let's get to Foxe Chase homes for sale and sold.
The one precautionary note is that most Foxe Chase homes are 1980s and 90s vintage; some after that, but not many. As a result, you may find the options a little dated. Moreover, compulsory hurricane protection windows and doors in modern developments are likely missing unless sellers have upgraded with renovations. We advise you to check these details carefully before signing on the dotted line. The bottom line is, for all the reasons outlined above, Foxe Chase will never see wholesale transactions. Still, when they do pop up represent a unique opportunity to share in an iconic South Floridian landscape.
So far in 2022 (going on seven months), only one (size - 5391 sq. ft.) has sold for $2,950,000 but is valued at closer to $3,500,000. This transaction represented $637 per sq. ft. under air (UA). The only one on the market currently is 7337 sq. ft. - $680 per sq. ft. (UA), which looks realistic. Built twenty years ago and one of the later constructions in the community, it's a perfect fit for a home buyer who can afford $5,000,000 for unsurpassed privacy with a more modern look. When it comes to Foxe Chase, seeing is believing. All our words can't do justice to the aura of the neighborhood, which, to copy the Mastercard slogan, is "Priceless."
