American Village is a very small, 55+ gated community located in Palm Coast, FL.
Why it matters: In addition to 45 single family homes, there are also 96 condominium units available. It’s hard to find 55+ communities with condos.
Very few amenities: If you care about amenities like clubhouses, fitness centers, activities directors, pickleball and/or tennis courts, American Village may not be the right community for you. But if those kinds of things turn you off about other communities because you feel like you’ll never use them and therefore don’t want to pay for them, this could be a good fit.
What amenities are there? There is a pool with a cabana at one end of the community and a dog park at the other end. That’s it, but there are other amenities you might enjoy in the surrounding area.
What’s around here? Residents can get involved in activities through the city recreation department as well as through a number of private clubs, putting most activities 10-20 minutes away. The beach is just 3 miles away from American Village.

What are the home sizes and prices? The single family homes seem to be mostly 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage layouts starting at around 1,750 sq. ft. I’m not sure how many are still available but the few I did see listed on their website were in the $300k’s.
What are the condo sizes and prices? Again, the thing that sets American Village apart from most 55+ communities is the availability of condos. These are available in 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom sizes. At the time of this writing (Sept. 2021) the 1 bedrooms start in the $150k’s and the 2 bedrooms start in the $225k range.
