There are some great ranch homes built in that area all around Palm Beach County; close to the urban core and extending outward. You might want to check out Jupiter, North Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Tequesta as this northern Palm Beach County region has an amazing quality of life. Amazing beach side living with A rated schools and a healthy economy. You may find an article that I wrote some time ago interesting reading;

Part of your problem is that homes in this age group are on the down cycle of neighborhoods that I learned about in real estate school. Also, since there was no zoning in Florida until the 1980s and because there were no real homeowner's associations in most neighborhoods, you get a 'hit or miss' look to the houses.
If you would like some help here in the Jacksonville area, we would be happy to set up a search for you. Call me at 904-673-2308 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
