Some observations regarding having a house on a paved road are: your car is usually cleaner longer, the ride is better, and most of the paved roads are thru streets (not dead end), generally more traffic. The dirt roads in Loxahatchee are serviced every month or so and a big piece of heavy equipment tractor. This usually happen while I'm at work. Depending on the skill of the operator it can make the road better or worse. If you live on a dirt road with few houses, say 10 or less the road will usually be in good condition, but if you live on a dirt road that is very long, or heaven forbid a thru street the road can become like a wash board. Also if there are ppl that like to spinout or ppl that like to ride ATV's the road will usually not be as good. You will not generally see ATV's on the paved roads, but on the dirt roads it's more likely. Also there may be low spots on some dirt roads that fill with water, sometimes a 5-6 inches or more deep. Seems to me that homes on paved road usually cost a little more. Also if you live near/on a dirt road that is well traveled, sometimes during the dry season you will see dust on your car. Indian trails services the roads. They have meetings to discuss which streets to pave. Streets that are well traveled seem to get paved first. Sometimes just a section of the road will get paved and then they'll pave it the rest of way later.

Hi Jason...I have a home for sale that is one lot in on a dead-end street 200' OFF the paved road. Many people prefer to live off the paved road, as there is less traffic. If you'd like to take a look, please go by 12441 66th St North in the Acreage. Agent Alan Kellock can be reached at 561-558-8603 to see inside...you won't be disappointed!

If you like to keep your vehicle clean Jason Loxahatchee is not for you, There are plenty of gated pristines comunities in Palm Beach County for you to look for your dream home, the only thing you would have to worry about is dodging the sprinklers.

Loxahatchee is an equestrian community. People have horses and other animals. The further west you go the more dirt roads you will find. If you are looking for paved roads then I would recommend looking at part of West Palm Beach that borders Loxahatchee and has paved roads with acre homes.

Unpaved roads may have a good reason for being there, e.g. for an equestrian property, they are easier on the horses feet if they do NOT have the gravel or asphalt. If you know of a particular property you want more information on , I'd be happy to find out why an unpaved road runs by that one. See my website to SEARCH THE FL MLS, and go to EXPLORE THE AREA for photos and descriptions of many communities in the area that you might be interested in. I'd be happy to be of help finding you a property. MARILYN JACOBS - marilynfjacobs@gmail.com.
