The above picture shows what we refer to as an 'Island' grouping of the 1st Neighborhood Core Homes in Palm Coast.  The Palm Coast Golf Course, later know as the Palm Harbor Golf Course surrounds these homes.  To our knowledge this Golf Course was the first Golf Course in Palm Coast, Flagler County. 
The Orange Arrow shows Clubhouse Drive. Upper right quadrant is the Atlantic Ocean.  The flattish yellowish land is the location of the at then, undeveloped, Canal Property.  The Canal Properties were Premium and priced accordingly as were the Golf Course Premium Lots.

Another Architects rendering of the Santa Rosa Model. We were pleased to see that it included Bahama Shutters in this rendering. Since we planned on adding Bahama Shutters this confirmed the look; consequently ordering all our Bahama Shutters and had them imported from the Willard Shutter Company in Miami.
It maintains  'Architectural Harmony'  with the adjoining homes as perceived by the Developers Intent.

JPEG taken from Tour Van of 13 Clark Lanes Foundation

JPEG taken from Tour Van of the foundation of 13 Clark Lane. This was Jobsite # 35. ( documentation upon request ). Initially this area was a designated construction site so it was first viewed only by the Developers' 9 Passenger White , later Blue , Vans used for 'Touring'. Note the first homes on Casper Drive in the background at various stages of construction.
Once the C.O.'s were offered for these first homes in Palm Coast, the area was then  opened to the public.
The Vans entered via Casper Drive and circled in and around Cooper Ln., Clark Ln. , Collins Ln., Cerrudo Ln. , Carr Ln., Casper Ct., Cooper Ct., and Carr Ct.  On Cooper Lane they passed the very first Child's and Neighborhood Park ( The very First Childs' and Neighborhood Park indicated in the Orange 'B" in the uppermost Aerial View Photo.
The White, later Blue,  9 Passenger Tour Vans also looped around the 19th Hole when that was almost completed via an extension of Cooper Lane.

That was the premium offered for this first Neighborhood of Palm Coast "Pioneer' Residents.  You could drive around in and own your own Golf Cart for the Golf Course Golf Clubhouse and the Driving Range; and there was that gorgeous very  first Childs' and Neighborhood Park there, almost adjacent, the Contemporary Clubhouse, ( Concrete, Block, Stucco) directy adjacent to that the beautiful Putting Green, and directly adjacent to that the 'Boat to Golf' Dock, for coming to the area via your Boat, or for Fishing and R&R.  The specific location was show each Prospective Buyer for each of the above.
Lots first offered in Palm Coast were either 'Standard' or 'Premium' and priced accordingly - obviously priced according to 'Location'.
Premium Lots were either Golf Course  Premium or Canal Premium and basic 'Standard' Lots.
