A Community Built for Addison Mizner's Own Family and the Executives of His Company
Old Floresta is a historic community in Boca Raton. It was created in 1925 by the famous architect and developer Addison Mizner. Originally these homes were intended for family members and executives and directors of his company.
With its Spanish Mediterranean designs, Old Floresta defined the city’s signature style that endures to this day. These spacious homes feature barrel tiled roofs, rustic stucco walls, and doors and windows that open on to wrought iron verandas. The Old Floresta neighborhood, located conveniently near Mizner Park, was designated Boca Raton’s first historic district in 1990.
Floresta which means “a delightful rural place,” is a collection of homes that are priced on the higher end of what Boca Raton has to offer.
Lake Floresta Park
Located east of I-95 and just North of Palmetto Park road is a collection of about 200 homes known collectively as Lake Floresta Park. A very appealing aspect of these magnificent homes is that there is no HOA involved. That means residents are free to cultivate their own taste when it comes to decorating and landscaping. Beautiful Lake Floresta is in the middle of this area.
These homes, built mostly in the 1970’s, have been renovated and upgraded to meet the taste of today’s home buyers.
