More About the Preserve

The Preserve is located in the southwest corner of Yamato Road and Military Trail. It's efficiently located in what I call the Central East section of Boca Raton. What I love about this location is you can get many places in Boca Raton very quickly. For example, if you want to jump on 95, you can do that in 3 minutes or less right off your road. And if you want to get west, you can take Yamato Road. And that is way less stressful and much faster than taking the alternative roads here in Boca Raton, such as Glades Road.

It's also very easy to get to the airports from the preserve. You just jump on 95 the Yamato Road, and it'll take you about 30 minutes or less to get to either West Palm Beach or Fort Lauderdale. And if you want to jump on the Tri Rail, the triangle is right down the street from The Preserve. It's like two or 3 minutes away.

On top of that, the neighborhood's close to great beaches, and it's easy to get to them. The closest beach in Boca Raton is Spanish River Beach and Park. You can get there quickly by taking Military Trail to Spanish River Road, 10 minutes or less. If you want to go north to Delray Beach, the closest beach is right off Linton Blvd, and that is also 10 minutes or less.

As far as the neighborhood's proximity to downtown shops, restaurants and malls, you're really in the middle of everything. It's 10 to 15 minutes to get to downtown Delray Beach's Atlantic Ave It's 5 to 10 minutes to get to downtown Boca Raton Mizner Park. And it's about 5 minutes to get to the mall here in Boca Raton.

And there are a ton of great restaurants all around these areas.

The Preserve is two minutes away from the Boca Raton Innovation Campus, which is the largest office complex in South Florida. This is the location where the personal computer was invented by IBM.

I'm frequently in the general area of The Preserve, primarily because of the restaurants. Palm Beach Bagel is a great spot for coffee and breakfast. The next spot I love is the Garden Butcher. It's a gourmet cafe and they make prepared foods that you can take back and eat later in the week on there every few days.

The Park Place shopping mall has a lot of places, including the Fresh Market Grocery Store and the Fresh Kitchen, which is a great, healthy, fast casual spot. The shops at Boca Center are very close to the mall and there's a handful of restaurants in there, such as Rocco's Tacos and Tap42. And then, believe it or not, the mall is very popular and has a lot of great restaurants in it as well.

You may notice from the map that some of the homes look like they are very close to Yamato Road or Military Trail, which may beg the question, is it noisy to live in The Preserve or in some of these homes that border those two roads? And the reality is, it actually isn't that noisy. I think the developers did a good job of strategically planning the neighborhood.

They put the neighborhood road in between Yamato Road and the homes and did the same for Military Trail. So none of the homes really back up to these two busier roads. So you really in my experience and I've been in a handful of these homes in the backyard, you do not hear the road from the backyard.

And especially when you're in the house, if you have impact windows and doors, you absolutely do not hear any noise from the roads.

The Preserve is located in an A-rated school district here in Boca Raton. The elementary school is Blue Lake, the middle school is Omni Middle and the high school is Spanish River Community High.

There are about 102 homes here in The Preserve, and they were all built between 2000 and 2001. The typical size of a home here will range between 3,000 to 5,000 square feet, with the average being about 4,000 square feet. Most homes in this neighborhood will have 4 to 5 bedrooms, with the average being about five bedrooms and 4 to 5 bathrooms, with the average being about four bathrooms.

The typical size of a lot will range between 11,000 to 15,000 square feet, which is pretty decent, relatively speaking, for Boca Raton. Homes were built with concrete block construction and you'll see mostly ranch and two story homes in this neighborhood.

The Preserve is in an HOA. The Wi-Fi is about $730 per month. And there's a one time capital contribution fee of $2,200 when you buy a property in this community. The annual fee generally covers the grounds in the area, all the amenities that the community has to offer and the 24/7 manned gate to get it

If you're into tennis, The Preserve is a very convenient neighborhood. There are four community tennis courts, a tennis pro shop and a clubhouse. There's a little basketball court here as well. And then on top of that, you have a community pool and a little playground area for the kids.
