Boca Raton’s unique historic neighborhood of Old Floresta was originally established in the mid 1920’s by celebrated society architect Addison Mizner. The picturesque Spanish Mediterranean designs adorned with rustic stucco walls, beautiful wrought iron balconies, Pecky Cypress ceilings,barrel tile roofs, and groomed tropical landscaping defined the city’s signature style that endures to this day. Mizner’s vision called for a neighborhood that would 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 expressly named for flowering plants, with large, charming Mediterranean-style residences. 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 real estate 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, pristine ocean beaches, and Boca Raton’s private executive airport.
