Designated as Boca Raton’s first Historic district in 1990, Old Floresta was created by famous Boca Raton developer, Addison Mizner. Mizner constructed these custom built homes in the mid 1920s to attract residents to sunny Boca Raton, and also housed his family members as well as directors and executives of his company in the neighborhood. The development company was at work nearby on the water building his masterpiece, the Cloister Inn, known now as the first-class Boca Raton Resort. “Floresta” means “a delightful rural place” in Spanish, and with lush landscaping and winding tree-lined streets named after flowering plants, Old Floresta is just that. Homes feature Mizner’s legendary Mediterranean architecture with rough-finished stucco, wrought-iron verandas, barrel tiled roofs, groomed tropical landscaping, and a distinctive old-world charm. Today, the neighborhood pays tribute to its rich history by preserving the original Mizner design, while still allowing necessary remodels and updates to keep the homes current. Rich in history and beauty that has inspired the rest of the city, this community is distinctive in its design and desirable in its prime East Boca location. The community is conveniently close to Mizner Park, Town Center Mall, the Boca Raton Resort and Club, beautiful beaches, luxurious movie theaters, incredible preserves, parks and nature centers as well as major roadway, I-95.
