PALMETTO BAY

South of the Village of Pinecrest is the Village of Palmetto Bay. More moderately priced than some of Miami-Dade’s family options, many of the homes in Palmetto Bay are charming but modern in style and most have been constructed in the last 20 years. Convenient to US 1 and to transit routes, Palmetto Bay Real Estate is perfect for the young family commuting to work but still looking for great schools, which include Westminster, Palmer Trinity, and the top-rated Palmetto Senior High School. Among the many parks that make life in Palmetto Bay homes enjoyable is the Deering Estate at Cutler, a more than 400 acre estate built by Charles Deering as a gift to his wife. Now a county park with access to Biscayne Bay, the Deering Estate is home to a seafood festival, concert series, and many other open-to-the-public events for kids of all ages, as well as bike and hiking trails and yoga classes.
