I had an aquaintence who moved out of Miami and built a house in Jupiter Farms about 10 years ago, maybe a little more than that. Jupiter Are all the streets/roads paved in Jupiter Farms?

What do you think are Jupiter Farms good points, bad points for quality of life? We consider being in a quiet area, not a treeless one, with a selection of supermarkets, perhaps a gourmet grocery, butcher shop, fish monger, Asian grocery/market, good restarants, not too far from the ocean or gulf, hospitals not more than 5-15 miles away, preferably as close as possible. Those are a few anyway. Good Veterinary Hospital nearby.

How does Jupiter Farms and the area there stack up with some of these things? What are the good/not so good/ bad, etc. What do you like about it?

Jeesh it's late and I'm rambling

Thank you in advance.

We lived in Jupiter Farms for 3 years. Every lot is 1.25 acres, 2.5 acres, and up. They came through and paved 75% of the roads 3 years ago. Some interior roads are still unpaved.

There is amazing landscaping in the Farms as it is called. Many lots are fenced and many residents have multiple dogs, horses, other animals. It is clean and safe. You can get to the ocean in about 20 minutes.

There is a shopping center at the intersection of Jupiter Farms Rd and Indiantown Rd. A large Publix supermarket, Italian restaurant, pool supplies, mail express store, etc. There is also a good Vet. clinic close by. A Pediatrician also has an office nearby.

You can have a $600,000 house right next to a $150,000 place. One house may be an engineer, the next may be a family whose hobby is rebuilding swamp buggys. Jupiter Farms has its share of good old southern boys and girls no doubt, mixed with executives who wanted the extra land.

It is a huge horse area, riding trails are everywhere.

The one frustrating thing about it is that the main road Jupiter Farms Road is 30 mph and loooong. It can seem like it takes you 20 minutes to follow the stream of cars leaving in the morning.

The closer you live to Indiantown Rd. the better. The Farms is a big rectangle with Indiantown Rd. on one side. If you are in the back corners of that rectangle, you can feel pretty isolated sometimes.

The address system is wild. The Farms has been divided and divided again and again through the years. So you have some main roads and a ton of side streets. It takes some getting used to as you can have an address of 150th Road N....not to be confused with 150th Place N...and 150th Avenue N.

We considered the Farms a trade off. Big lots, quiet, no HOA. But you do have to drive a ways to get to Jupiter. That one shopping center gets old after a while.

We are looking in the Farms also. It's secluded but close enough to everything. There are all sorts of shops and grocers not far away in Palm Beach Gardens. Palm Beach Country Estates is nice also. Very similar to Jupiter Farms, but it's closer to more things since it's off of Donald Ross vs. Indiantown Road. You get a lot of land in both areas. Jupiter Farms is cheaper.
