I've found very little information on a small gated community of Sea Colony on the Palm Coast. From what I can find it is an older community (1980's), close to the beach, with most of the houses under 2000 sq ft.

This looks like the perfect little place to me and I'm wondering if anyone on here knows more information about it. I'm not finding it referenced on the boards, nor a community website.

On the con side, it looks like the houses may be stick built from what I could see.

Your impressions are correct. It's so far out of Palm Coast "proper" that it doesn't get much talk- likely due to all of the new development in the area, there really isn't much to say about Sea Colony.

It's a nice, small little neighborhood on the east side of A1A so the beach will be very close. There is a grocery store down the road- about a 5 minute drive. You will need to take the toll bridge ($2.00 toll on the eastbound side only) to go into town- or go about 8 miles further south to flagler beach and follow hwy 100 into Palm Coast. There is also a gas station and convenience store a couple miles away, as well as a few restaurants and wine shops. In my opinion, the beauty of that area more than compensates for the little bit of a drive you will have to come into Palm Coast for your needs.

Sea Colony is gated and has a homeowners association. In the ten years I've lived here I haven't heard much about the community other than that they don't allow school buses to enter the neighborhood- the kids have to walk out to A1A and wait on a very busy road for the bus. This had some parents very upset a couple of years ago but since then I've heard that all the gated communities in this area have the same rule.

You may be correct about the stick built homes- but in the 80s they finished several homes in this area with wood facades- those homes very well could be concrete block beneath their finishing.

You're looking at this area at a very good time to get the best deal. It is certainly a buyer's market out there.

Thanks .. good to know that there isn't something really negative about the area. It is interesting to note that the prices seem high compared to other newer, larger homes that are available in the Palm Coast area. Always a trade off..!

That's because it's gated and practically on the beach. The larger gated communities near Sea Colony (Ocean Hammock and Hammock Dunes) have really driven higher real estate values in that area (we call it the Hammock- A1A north of Palm Coast Parkway).

Since it's a gated community how can you get in to look around and if you want a long-term rental vice vacation rental
how do you find a rental agent?
