Wyld Palms

The Master Plan
Just inside the city limits off Turner Camp Road, the planned Villages of Wyld Palms master plan gated community overlooks thousands of feet of Lake Henderson shoreline. One of the city's newest developments, Wyld Palms integrates the natural surroundings with recreational and leisure activities.

Laid Back Living
The concept of Wyld Palms started out initially as a large community of 500 single-family homes. Platted Nov. 18, 1986, the community was then referred to as Heron Point Landing with original plans for 500 multi-family houses. In 2004, developers of Wyld Land Development revised the site plan and the community name became Wyld Palms. A proposed 364 homes -- single-family houses and condominiums -- would create a collection of seven uniquely designed villages in a three-phase plan. Altogether, approximately 900 homes were planned for the 85-acre site.

The first Village of the development, the Landings at Wyld Palms, was to feature maintenance free Manor homes along 3,000-feet of shoreline. The Manor homes were originally priced from $199,000 to $270,000. They featured four floor plans from 1,325 square-feet living space to 1,926 square-feet living space, a 2-car garage, cathedral ceilings, an enclosed gas fireplace, Corian countertops and an irrigation system. Only 7 of the 24 homes that were built before the development went into receivership. The infrastructure (roads, water, etc.) and a 12,000 square-foot Lake House and second clubhouse are complete, including a deck, pool, spa & fitness center, party & game rooms.

Other Villages planned included Harborside, Waterside, The Terraces, The Preserve, Parkside, and Dockside. Additional features planned for the development was a hair and nail salon, business center, health center, mile-long lakeside boardwalk, marina with 40 boat slips, walking trails, barbecue facility, outdoor kitchen and a water taxi service to downtown Inverness.

Different Styles for Different Tastes
Along with 50 Manor homes in the Landings at Wyld Palms, Harborside was to feature 168 Coach homes. The Waterside section was reserved for 40 Carriage homes ranging from 1,748 square-feet of living space to 2,315 square-feet. The Terrace Village was to feature single-family homes, as was the Preserve. Last but not least, Dockside was to feature custom built 1 or 2 story single-family homes on the water.
