Secret Gems of South Florida: Central Park Boca Raton
If your next move lands you in South Florida, you can consider yourself lucky! Not only will you gain all of the surface benefits of dwelling in the Sunshine State, but you’ll also find yourself discovering a treasure trove of secret gems. When thinking about your new home in SoFlo, what probably first comes to mind is the location. And that’s exactly what you get with Central Park, a townhome community located in the heart of posh, desirable Boca Raton – and one of South Florida’s best-kept secrets.
According to Hans Bacares, our Vice President of Technology at Signature International Real Estate, Central Park is the perfect neighborhood for professionals, growing families, and families with four-legged friends! Central Park is incredibly pet-friendly, with multiple semi-enclosed areas for pets to play and pet stations available throughout the neighborhood.
This spacious, all-ages community is near all that Boca Raton and Delray Beach have to offer. Central Park is located just a one-minute drive away from 95 and just a few miles to Boca’s chic Mizner Park and trendy Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach – though residents will still enjoy the privacy of being located on a quiet street. Ready for the beach? It’s only about a 10-minute drive from Central Park. Plus, the highly sought-after zip code allows for Central Park residents to purchase annual beach parking permits.
Central Park’s 190 townhomes are set amidst a park-like community, with lush, manicured grounds and tropical gardens with expansive green spaces and lawns, resident promenades, and sculpted sidewalks. But the high-end curb appeal doesn’t end with the incredible greenery. Central Park has a certain sophisticated style that’s conveyed from the exterior architecture to the spacious, contemporary interiors. From the bright colors to the barrel tile roofs, wrought iron detailing, and arched entryways, the charming details in this community were inspired by the noted architect Addison Mizner. Built by Lennar Homes in 2008, every private two-story home in Central Park was constructed with solid materials and quality craftsmanship. The two and three-bedroom townhomes range in size from 1,600-square-feet to 2,300-square-feet. Central Park offers eight distinctive floor plans within the community, giving buyers plenty of options and flexibility – perfect for growing families as well as the single-minded. Central Park townhomes come with bright, open floor plans, gorgeous porcelain or wood flooring, his-and-hers walk-in closets, gourmet kitchens with granite kitchen countertops, state-of-the-art appliances, nine-foot ceilings, two-car garages, private courtyards, balconies, and terraces off of the Master Suite, as well as an atrium in some models. Have peace of mind knowing that your Central Park home has high-impact resistant windows throughout.
Central Park’s resort-style amenities include a clubhouse, community room, exercise facility with state-of-the-art equipment, playground, community swimming pool, lakeside picnic area, and a bike-jog path that extends all the way to Glades Road. Not to mention, Central Park is located within Boca Raton’s A-rated school district and is close to highly desirable private schools. No doubt, Central Park is South Florida living at its finest, priced from the mid $400K's with a very low HOA fee.
