PORT ROYAL, ONE OF THE PRICIEST NEIGHBORHOODS IN AMERICA

 December 21, 2021

Port Royal was named after the 17th Century Jamaican city which became famous as a destination for privateers and smugglers. The streets today still carry names reminiscent of that era including Rum Row, Gin Lane, Galleon Drive, and Buccaneers Roost.

A majority of the homes in Port Royal are situated along the water with private beaches and wide, deep-water canals giving direct access to the Gulf. These man-made peninsulas were engineered in the early ’50s with the help of Port Royal’s founder, John Glenn Sample, and took many years and millions of dollars to complete – $3.5 million of Mr. Sample’s personal funds.

As of December 21st, 2021, there are currently 7 active listings in Port Royal ranging in price from $9,990,000.00 to $22,950,000.00. A total of 11 homes were sold in the last four months with the most expensive property closing at $40,000,000.00 million in September, 2021. The purchase of a Port Royal home also includes membership to the revered Port Royal Club which includes gourmet dining options, private beach access, a beach-side pool, fitness center, spa services, tennis facilities, and a line up of social events. The demand for this area is fairly consistent with the ultra-wealthy often not feeling the same fluctuations as the rest of the real estate market.
