Flamingo Park West Palm Beach Real Estate & Homes For Sale
Flamingo Park is one of the most sought after historical neighborhoods in West Palm Beach. The neighborhood became a West Palm Beach historic district in January 1993 and was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.
There are around 500 homes within the subdivision, with architecturally significant homes built in Mission and Mediterranean Revival and Frame Vernacular styles. It is this architecture, combined with Flamingo Park’s proximity to area attractions, as well as the fact that is sits on the highest coastal ridge from downtown West Palm Beach to Miami, that makes this area so desirable.
When the area was built out in the early to mid-1920s, it was home to many of the most prominent citizens of the time. Today, it remains an attractive slice of real estate heaven for those who want to live in a beautiful home with wooden floors, fireplaces, Florida rooms, and a garden and swimming pool in which to relax year round.
The size, price and style of homes for sale in Flamingo Park vary greatly. It’s not uncommon to have a 900 sq. ft. 2/1 cottage sitting next to a 3,000 sq. ft. Spanish-style home with a guest cottage.
Flamingo Park is situated between Grandview Heights to the north and Sunshine Park to the South. The Armory Arts Center and Howard Park sit on the northeast edge of the neighborhood. Residents can enjoy two dog parks, tennis courts, a jogging path, a playground, and of course the decades old Banyan trees.
Sitting just south of Okeechobee Boulevard, it is a short distance to Rosemary Square, downtown West Palm Beach, and the pristine waters of the Atlantic Ocean in nearby Palm Beach.
