Loxahatchee Lifestyle and Facts
Situated near Wellington and Royal Palm Beach, the charming and eclectic community of Loxahatchee, or sometimes referred to as Loxahatchee Groves, retains a unique and rural feel while providing its residents some of the largest lot sizes to be found in Palm Beach County.

The community’s name is derived from the Seminole Native American term for “Turtle River” and is shared by Palm Beach County’s winding Loxahatchee River. Loxahatchee supports a population of just over 3,000 people on approximately 12.5 sq. miles, in addition to a diverse selection of attractions and amenities.

Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge are all moments away and provide the some of the best opportunities in the world to experience south Florida’s unique and vibrant ecosystem and its flora and fauna.

Loxahatchee Historical Notes
In the early years of the previous century, the area that would later be known as Loxahatchee was largely agriculturally oriented with an emphasis on citrus crops. In 1917, the name “Loxahatchee” was utilized to refer to the greater area as a whole, including the natural preserves and refuges we know today. The small community then known as Loxahatchee Groves was recognized as a municipality by the state and kept the “Groves” designation in order to assist in differentiating itself from the surrounding area.
In 2006, Loxahatchee voted to incorporate with the stated desire to have more influence on locally impacting decision-making. Concerned residents are extremely desirous of maintaining the rural and unique charm that Loxahatchee enjoys and helps differentiate it from the rest of Palm Beach County in terms of lifestyle and privacy.
Loxahatchee real estate options are many and varied. Prospective home purchasers will find elegant gated-communities, beautiful single-family residences, opulent estate-style homes and full-blown equestrian estates with every horse-related amenity imaginable. Regardless of home type, parcels in Loxahatchee tend toward the larger side allowing for a sense of privacy and space hard to find in Palm Beach County.
