How did Jupiter get its name anyway? There is a story about a translator who mistakenly took a native name from the Jobe or Hove tribe who lived in the area in the 17th century and anglicized it into “Jupiter.” So, now we have the Planetary city in a subtropical zone with gated communities throughout. A very suburban context that fits the name perhaps more than its meaningless application to a Native American tribe written about in a 17th century traveler’s book.
One of these communities is the homes and estates of Egret Landing.
It’s adjacent to the Florida Turnpike and Interstate 95. Here are 600 homes along thousands of swaying palm trees. You’ll want to acquire the services of a local realtor because inventory is drastically down. Home prices start at $400,000 and top out at $600,000. Sizes range from 1700 ft.² to 3319 ft.².
The community features private facilities including a swimming pool, tennis courts and a clubhouse.
