While much of South Florida real estate has been struggling to climb back after the housing bubble popped in 2007, prices within Fort Lauderdale’s quaint and secluded Victoria Park Neighborhood have remained level for a number of reasons. Obviously the prime location is a factor, mirrored only by the surrounding businesses, recreation and restaurants.
While Victoria Park is situated some 2 miles away from the ocean, the neighborhood gives off the vibe of a small beach town. The neighbors are active and friendly, the driveways often unpaved; small 2 bedroom villas built in the 1930s and 1940s are lined up next to three story modern town homes constructed within the decade. Some properties feature lush, tropical landscaping while others look like you’re peering into a Northern Tree-lined drive.
Victoria Park has truly reinvented itself in the last twenty years, attracting successful young residents and families to the scenic and artfully constructed neighborhood. Many parts of Victoria Park are within walking distance to Las Olas Boulevard–a bustling pedestrian strip mall featuring art galleries, boutiques, salons and spas and local eateries–the true heart of Fort Lauderdale as a destination. Beaches are a short bike ride away from the neighborhood of Victoria Park, allowing residents to relax and enjoy their surroundings.
For the socialites and young professionals, Victoria Park is surrounded by upscale night clubs, like O Lounge and LIV, as well as being a mile away from the city’s Himarshee Village– home to night clubs, bars and discos open most nights until 4 am.
1924 marked the beginning of Victoria Park, plotted and planned by founder Alfred G. Kuhn. In the early days, plots were being sold for $2,000 each, on average. In todays market, a well appointed single family home ranges from the mid $300s-$700s, depending on the features and amenities.
Victoria Park is an unparalleled neighborhood offering residents both luxury and convienence, while still catering to minimalists. Available properties include townhomes, condos and single-family homes, truly catering to anyone’s needs.
