Orchid Bay Real Estate in Palm City, FL

Orchid Bay, also known as Captain’s Creek, is one of the most sought-after communities in Palm City. It is located south of the Palm City Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, from Mapp Road. The securely gated neighborhood is made up of 153 lots, of which only two are still vacant and available for development. Each lot is at least a half-acre, with some over an acre, so the residents enjoy nearly unmatched privacy and tranquility.

The community was planned and developed in the early 90s by the Tartan Company and had no single builder responsible for the homes. The beautiful result of this is one of the few communities in the area that avoid the “cookie-cutter” syndrome of many other neighborhoods. Each lot’s original owner contracted their own construction, and as a result, the homes in this area are wonderfully diverse. Orchid Bay in Palm City has made its name as one of the more desirable areas for Treasure Coast real estate.
