Abacoa is a 2,055 acre development built on the southern edge of Jupiter and consisting of 15 family based communities. The development consists of townhomes, condos, and single family homes and was planned as a response to the suburban sprawl found in most of South Florida. Abacoa was planned to integrate work, live, play into a community of mixed use zoning and bringing all facets of community life together in one place.
In order to facilitate mixing a wide diversity of groups, varying housing styles were built and one of these is Somerset Abacoa Jupiter homes, a mix or condos and townhouses. The 266 homes in Somerset were built in 2003-2004 and the condos offer 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units which range in size from 897 square feet to about 1,400 feet. The townhouses come in 2 and 3 bedroom floor plans and sizes range up to over 1,700 square feet. Units have balconies and inside you will find upgrades like crown molding, wood floors, granite counters and stainless steel appliances.
Somerset offers the chance to walk the children to school and four schools are located in or near Abacoa. These schools are Beacon Cove Intermediate School, Independence Middle School, Lighthouse Elementary School and Jupiter Middle School.
