Toll Brothers, the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, created an ultra-exclusive community of luxury, new homes at Frenchman’s Harbor. Located in Palm Beach County and set on the picturesque Intracoastal Waterway, every home site offers a deep-water boat dock and access to the Atlantic Ocean in just minutes. Tropical temperatures and the lush, natural beauty of South Florida surround Frenchman’s Harbor, a community where homeowners enjoy a sophisticated coastal lifestyle year-round. Frenchman’s Harbor is a private, intimate community that will be comprised of 48 single-family homes and 30 carriage residences once complete.

Jim McDade, Toll Brothers Southeast Florida Division President, stated Frenchman’s Harbor is ideally located in North Palm Beach, FL and offers the only new homes being built on the Intracoastal Waterway in Palm Beach County. “The community represents the ultimate Palm Beach boating lifestyle,” he said.McDade went on to explain that the demand is high for real estate in Palm Beach County, especially on the Intracoastal Waterway. “Frenchman’s Harbor is a high-profile, luxury community that represents Toll Brothers’ signature of quality and value.”

When asked about the specific green amenities at Frenchman’s Harbor, McDade explained that Toll Brothers’ homes work to incorporate sustainable solutions in every project. This includes Frenchman’s Harbor. “Toll Brothers’ homes are built with a variety of sustainable features at no additional cost, including high-performance Low-E windows, high-efficiency Carrier/Bryant air conditioners, Energy Star® qualified appliances and water heaters, Kohler® water-conserving fixtures, and fully programmable thermostats. Homes also feature eco-friendly cabinetry by Norcraft Cabinetry, insulated exterior doors, and energy-efficient lighting and fixtures,” stated McDade.

Building a luxurious project that is both sustainable and pleasing to the eye can at times be tough and like many extensive projects, there are certain challenges that need to be met. “The quality Toll Brothers builds into its homes requires precision and careful planning,” McDade said. “To provide boat docks to each home at Frenchman’s Harbor, a channel was built through the community and required special permitting and construction knowledge. Toll Brothers worked with highly trained professionals to ensure all provisions were met with the utmost quality.”
