WHAT’S TO LOVE ABOUT DEGARMO ESTATES
DeGarmo Estates is a gated community that sits at the intersection of Douglas Road and Main Highway. The property is located on the former estate of Walter C. DeGarmo. His original home still exists on the site and has been carefully and beautifully restored. In 1993, developers built 10 new construction homes within the walls of the DeGarmo estate. It has since become a very private and exclusive community. The new construction homes maintained the Mediterranean style that DeGarmo was famous for. There have been very few sales in the community over the past few years.
A description from a recent home that was listed for sale in De Garmo Estates reads: Elegant Italian-inspired villa in exclusive & gated De Garmo Estates. Drive through the majestic gates onto a winding road canopied by massive oaks. Light-filled living spaces with double-height ceilings & the finest finishes including marble fireplace, coffered & tray ceilings, and extensive millwork throughout. Expansive custom kitchen and family room opens to covered terrace & pool surrounded by lush botanical gardens. Close to the Grove village centers boutiques, cafes and bayfront parks & marinas.
