Old Floresta Historic Homes
One of Boca Raton's Pioneering Communities
Addison Mizner designed neighborhood featuring classic Boca Raton houses for sale. The unique and historic neighborhood of Old Floresta was originally established in the mid 1920's by celebrated society architect Addison Mizner, whose picturesque Spanish Mediterranean designs defined the city's signature style that endures to this day. Part of his plan to attract new residents to Boca Raton, Mizner's vision called for a neighborhood that would also house the executives and directors of his development company, and would be constructed by the firm building his glamorous masterpiece, the Cloister Inn, now the world-renowned landmark Boca Raton Resort. Named "Floresta" ("a delightful rural place"), the neighborhood took shape on lush tree-lined streets evocatively named for flowering plants, with charming Mediterranean-style residences adorned with rustic stucco walls, beautiful wrought iron balconies, barrel tile roofs, and groomed tropical landscaping. Today, Old Floresta maintains the alluring charm of yesteryear and pays tribute to its rich history, preserving many of the original Mizner-designed residences, and was designated Boca Raton's first Historic District in 1990. Old Floresta holds special appeal as a uniquely distinctive and desirable address, located in the heart of Boca Raton, only minutes away from Mizner Park's world-class shopping and dining, the Boca Raton Resort and Club, pristine Atlantic ocean beaches and Boca Raton's private executive airport.
