Lost Tree Florida – Residential Profile
Because Lost Tree is 45 years old, many of the founding resident’s homes have been sold to new families. This factor, coupled with telecommuting, has attracted a diverse mix of ages – from young families in their 30’s whose children attend local schools, commuting executives or board members who take advantage of our nearby West Palm Beach airport, as well as many of the original founding members and their adult children who have purchased properties to continue the Lost Tree Village tradition. The common thread is the desire for security, privacy, and an unassuming lifestyle in a sandy beach oceanfront community.
