South of West Palm Beach Downtown (WPBD) lies the historic suburb El Cid with North Shore Terrace (also historic) to the north, both on Flagler Drive. A little west of the latter, split by the A1A state road, is Northwood which contains hundreds of SF residences in subsections Northwood Pines, Northwood Park Historic District, Northwood Gardens, and Pinewood Park. Moreover, Northwood homes for sale lie less than 800 yards from the west banks of the Intracoastal (as the crow flies).
Construction in this enclave began in 1910 (i.e., another genuinely historic district) along tree-lined streets carving through thick, flowing tropical foliage which delivers an overwhelming nature-centric and exclusive feel to the suburb. Moreover, the more-than-a-century continued construction has created a landscape of Addison Mizner Mediterranean/Spanish Revival-influenced residences starting at 1,250 to over 5,000 square feet under air (UA). In many cases, homeowners have significantly remodeled interiors with mind-boggling mixtures of the new and old.
For example, consider a 3,272-square-foot Spanish mission-type house on the MLS in 2023. The sellers thoughtfully renovated this home to merge contemporary Southern California architecture with 1925 built-in features (the latter being the brainchild of J.A. Bowery - a legendary designer during that period). So, on offer is an interior that reflects the following:
The above case study typifies this neighborhood's eclectic mixture of pre-1940 and breathtaking futuristic designs, showing the massive possibilities of living a unique, private estate home lifestyle. Prices on the MLS in 2023 ranged between $1.6 million to $4.9 million, with the per square foot (UA) registering as $550 to $1,495. That's a massive differential, indicating the need for a professional realtor like the ZFC team to guide your negotiations. Why? Because it can save buyers thousands of dollars by not paying unnecessarily for upgrades. Notably, our fees are zero to you, as sellers pay agents' commissions, making it a no-brainer decision to ensure no missteps. Indeed, many of our clients in historic enclaves want a clean slate to renovate to their taste, thus aiming for the lowest price per square foot possible. We can do that for you.
