Hi Forum Members! First time poster...long time stalker

Does anyone have any intel on Hidden Bridges Estates? I know it's Martin County from a school perspective. Low HOA. 16 lots...not quite half sold...but it's been around for about 5 years. Hmmmm. Really more house than we need. We have elementary aged kids, so it might be more of a family feel than our other "water" option. (Guest area is important to us...). Any other thoughts on why we should consider or avoid?

Thank you! Can't wait to be your "neighbor"!!

Hidden Bridges has not sold very well for some reason. Other new communities have sold considerably faster in the area. Not sure if it's just too small of a community for most people or in that price range you can get a smaller house on the water.
If you are worried about the family feel of the water rent a boat and hit up the sandbar and a few other areas on the weekend.

Price point is significantly higher than surrounding mass produced communities. With the higher price you get fancy pools, an acre of land, etc. Onshore Construction started that project and built some homes in there. Onshore also built Celine Dion's 65mm mansion as well as other mansions in the area.

Price start around $1.5 mil. for Hidden Bridge. Have you looked into Prado? Construction has picked up considerably in that development, which is a little closer to downtown Jupiter than Hidden Bridge is. Large lots from 1/2 to 1 acre and a total of 127 homesites. The builder is Standard Pacific Homes. Prado is definitely upscale but Hidden Bridge is a bit more so with exclusive estates. Large estate homes take longer to sell and Hidden Bridge got started during the downturn. I suspect those are the reasons they have not sold out. Lots of construction happening along Island Way now that real estate in this area is on the upswing.

Hi -

Thank you all for your comments. It's really helpful since I only get to see that area on my weekend house hunting trips. Love the sandbar comment - thank you! I saw lots of older, older people in the water neighborhood - guess that means they'll be turning over eventually, right?! I understand that the builder in Hidden Bridges is now allowing other builders to come in (at a premium, of course) to offer for more flexibility/options for prospective buyers, so I believe that is why lots are starting to sell in there again. (We did look at Prado this weekend, but don't want to build and the existing options would require (according to my tastes) some upgrades that I'm afraid would price us out of that neighborhood.
