October Homes $700K And Up: The Oaks, Bridges, 7 Bridges, and Delray Lakes Estates

Eleven homes in West Boca and southwest Delray sold in October for prices ranging from $710,000 to $1,240,000. All eleven were in four neighborhoods – Delray Lakes Estates, The Oaks, The Bridges and Seven Bridges. The market in this range may be heating up as most of the homes sold in two months or less.
Delray Lakes Estates
Two homes sold on Sawpine Road in Delray Lakes Estates, which is on the south side of Atlantic just west of the Turnpike. The community has a manned entrance and is in the process of adding a new gate.

8538 Sawpine is four houses down from 8476 Sawpine.

8476 Sawpine Road was the highest price this month at $1,240,000. Built in 2015 the home has five bedrooms and five and half baths in 4600 square feet of living space on two floors, with a small attached guest house. It sits on a one acre lot with a gorgeous pool and its own tennis court. The backyard looks out to a canal and undeveloped land.
A few doors down 8538 Sawpine sold what looks like a bargain at $805,000. Built in 1989 the house has 5 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths in 4300 square feet, all on one floor.
The Oaks
17603 Middle Lake Drive sold for $1,237,000. The house has 5 beds with 5 1/2 baths in 4900 square feet on two floors. It’s on a cul de sac, one of the nicest lots in the community, with a wraparound lake view.
17838 Cadena Drive sold for $1.08 million with 5 beds, and 6 1/2 baths in 4900 square feet. It’s not a particularly special lot, with the backyard up against Lyons Road and not far from Clint Moore, but it sold in just 3 days.
The Bridges
The lone straggler on the market was 8879 Sydney Harbor Circle, which sat on the market for several months listed too high, starting at $1.45M, later reduced to $1.3M. It was recently relisted for just under $1.2M and then sold in 20 days for $1.15M. It’s not a big house for The Bridges with 3 beds and 3 1/2 baths in 3350 square feet, with nothing particularly special about the lot.
16566 Sagamore Bridge Way sold for $820K with 4 beds and 3 1/2 baths in 3000 square feet with a lake view and a small backyard pool. On paper it looks like the buyers got a lot more for their money.
8153 Hutchinson Court sold for $780K with 5 bedrooms and 5 baths in 4300 square feet. It’s located at the start of a cul de sac but the lot is not any bigger and there’s nothing special in the backyard.
8980 Little Falls Way sold for $742,500 with 4 beds and 4 baths in 3500 square feet. It was oddly listed by a Broward-based Realtor through the Miami Realtors MLS. The listing used low resolution photos and was very short on detail. It’s possible that the owner and Realtor were related.
16538 Gateway Bridge Drive sold for $710K with 4 beds and 3 baths in 2500 square feet, one of the smallest models in The Bridges.
Seven Bridges
Two very similar new homes sold in the Greenwich section of Seven Bridges for nearly identical prices. Both sold for about $1.06 million. 16323 Pantheon Pass and 16383 Pantheon Pass each have 5 bedrooms and 6 baths in 4735 square feet.
