Surround Yourself With History and Beauty of Mature Tropical Landscape Old Floresta
, surrounded by mature oak tree canopies, is the first established neighborhood in Boca Raton. Aptly named “Delightful Spot” in Spanish, the settlement of 29 homes was designed for family casual living by the famed architect Addison Mizner in 1925. The community is the embodiment of true Mizner-esque style, featuring 10 different historic architectural themes, each reflecting elements of Mediterranean design.
Addison Mizner’s original vision for Old Floresta included 100 estates, surrounded by lush tropical grounds, with friendly strolling streets woven throughout. By 1926, twenty nine homes had been constructed. Nearly 90 years later, the sapling oak trees planted around the pristine community have grown into a canopy of natural beauty, protecting the historic gem inside.

configured many of the estates to have four exposures, allowing fresh breezes and sunlight to fill the homes throughout the day. Rustic details like stone fireplaces, relaxing porches, and natural materials such as cypress wood, Florida pine and wrought iron were chosen not only for their beauty, but for their ability to last. Mizner’s attention to detail and fine choices of material are apparent even today as they have withstood the test of time.
