Stonebridge Homes Sold 2017

10666 Stonebridge Blvd sold for $410,000 in March. Image copyright Warren Redlich.

Stonebridge Country Club is a golf course community of 398 homes on the west side of US-441 north of Clint Moore. 23 homes sold in 2017 with prices ranging from just over $100,000 up to $495,000. The average price for 2017 was $311,500, a substantial drop from the 2016 average of $351,000. Communities with mandatory golf membership often face a challenging market for home prices and that doesn’t appear to be getting easier.
The average price in dollars per square foot was just over $100, well below the $180 or more that we typically see in West Boca gated communities. Ten of the transactions were for less than $100 per square foot and only two were over $130/sq.ft. The average home took just under four months to sell.

10264 Spyglass Way was the lowest price and really an outlier at $102,500 for a 2600 square foot house with 3 bedrooms. It appears to have been a desperate sale by the estate of a deceased owner. All other homes sold for $180K or higher including two “REO” homes for just under $200K.
On the bright side five homes sold for over $400,000 including two at $495,000. 10499 Stonebridge Blvd sold for $495K with 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths in nearly 4000 square feet. The smaller 10241 Shireoaks Lane also sold for $495K with 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in 3400 square feet. The top price in 2016 was only $482,500 so there’s some hope for homes at the higher end.
We’re getting an early start on our annual reports so it’s possible there will be one or two more transactions closed by the end of 2017.

Stonebridge Country Club is in the northwest corner of Boca Raton, on the west side of 441 north of Clint Moore. The entrance is across from the 441 entrance to The Oaks. The community has just under 400 single family homes. It’s a great community to live in, with a recently renovated golf course, top-notch tennis courts and fitness center, and a gorgeous clubhouse with great food.
This Friday we were invited to an event at the clubhouse put on by the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches. PBSO Deputy John Ledford was the main speaker, and he talked about safety concerns and practices for real estate professsionals.

The clubhouse is a fairly large space easily holding an event with well over 200 people.

There was even more space in the next room which had the breakfast buffet.

Stonebridge hired John Iannotti as the club’s general manager in 2014. We’ve heard he’s doing a great job, especially with the food. Many people went back for seconds.
The event was followed by a tour of open houses. There are currently 26 homes in Stonebridge on the market with prices ranging from below $200K up to $530K, with one 3-bedroom house currently listed at only $125K as an estate sale. The lowest prices are on Spyglass Way in the northeast corner of the community. There were 17 transactions in the past year from $170K to $500K.
10570 Harich Lane
10570 Harich Lane

10570 Harich Lane is on the market for $355,000. It has four bedrooms and three full baths in 3000 square feet. The house seemed to be in mostly good shape. The backyard has a pool and faces woods. There’s nothing behind it but empty land and the Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge.

The master bedroom has a nice slider looking out on the pool.

10402-stonebridge
Next up is 10402 Stonebridge Boulevard, on the market for $349K. It has four bedrooms and three baths in 3250 square feet, along with a screened-in pool.

On the way to the last house we noticed a gorgeous home not on the market at 10361 Parkstone:
10361-parkstone-front
Across the street sits 10360 Parkstone, which has large trees blocking any attempt to get a good photo of the front of the house.
10360 Parkstone - kitchen
10360 Parkstone – kitchen

This house has four bedrooms and four baths in nearly 3500 square feet, and is listed for $460K. It did not feel as big as the numbers indicate and we didn’t find it staged in an appealing way, though the kitchen does look very nice.
10360-parkstone-kitchen
The screen doors in the backyard seemed to need work, but this was the only house that had a nice view.
10360-parkstone-view
Overall this last house appears to be overpriced relative to the other houses on the market.
Like many country clubs, prices are low because of the mandatory membership which gets expensive. It starts with over $50K you need to pay to join the club (another $15K if you join for golf) and in the ballpark of $25K per year in dues, association fees and other expenses.
You can get a great house in Stonebridge for a very good price. It comes with a pleasant lifestyle if you can afford the annual expense.

In mid-April we reported about a serious accident on 441 at the entrance to Stonebridge Country Club.

•••WEST BOCA RATON•••
TRAFFIC ACCIDENT
US Hwy 441/Stonebridge Country Club
PBCFR Station-54 is onscene of a head-on collision, heavy damage, 2 occupants unconscious trapped, extrication is underway, 3 Rescue units requested, 2 ground Trauma Alerts to Delray Medical Center

This morning we learned that the driver of one of the cars passed away on Friday in hospice. Phyllis Panzer, age 88, owned a house in Stonebridge for 15 years.
At the time of the accident the Sheriff’s office described the accident (early evening of April 19th) as follows:

V-1 (Panzer) was traveling northbound on U.S. 441 and was attempting to turn left to head westbound on Stonebridge Country Club Boulevard. V-2 was traveling southbound on U.S. 441 and as it reached Stonebridge Country Club Boulevard, V-1 turned left into its path.
D-2 attempted evasive maneuvers to avoid a collision, but violently struck the front passenger side wheel of V-1 with its front end.
D-1 (Panzer) and O-1 were transported to Delray Medical Center for serious injuries and remain in critical condition. D-2 was also transported to Delray Medical Center but for minor injuries.

Panzer’s passenger, Michael Weitzmann (91), is also a resident of Stonebridge. He suffered critical injuries. We do not have any update on his status.
The police report indicates that Panzer and Weitzmann were not wearing seatbelts. The other driver, Jeffrey Young (59) of Lake Worth, was belted and suffered only minor injuries.
