Miramar Home Features Old-School Flooring (And Small Doors)

Time and time again, I get the chance to see some of the older South Florida homes built circa 1940’s – 1950’s. Yes, by South Florida standards that is considered an older home. Some of these homes still have the original (and often times colorful) Cuban Tiles (also known as cement tiles) and/or Terrazzo. I especially like the highly polished terrazzo flooring, flaunting specs of multi-colored marble chips.

This house I showed today was built in the mid 1940’s and featured both flooring types, although the colors weren’t as impressive as others that I’ve seen in other venues.

Discover Hollywood Beach & the Beautiful Hollywood Beach Broadwalk

I grew up in Miami, a mere 30 minutes south of Hollywood (be sure to visit GoHollywood.com), but I did not discover the amazing Hollywood Beach Broadwalk (it’s a “broadwalk,” not a “boardwalk”) until several years after I’d graduated from college.  Of course I was familiar with Hollywood Hills, Emerald Hills, and I’d enjoyed some family picnics at Topeekeegee Yugnee Park (most of us locals call it TY Park), but then we would hop back on I-95 and return home.  I discovered the Broadwalk when visiting friends who lived in a small apartment on A1A, a few blocks south of the Hollywood Boulevard drawbridge.  They lived steps away from the shore.  Right away, I knew I had discovered where I wanted to live. In terms of real estate, Hollywood Beach has homes at every price point, from efficiency and one-bedroom units along A1A to huge, luxurious penthouse residences near the fabulous Diplomat Hotel.

Since 1997, Hollywood, Florida has been my home. Today I own a condo in Sheridan by the Beach, a short bicycle ride or brisk walk down Sheridan Street to the beach. In recent years, Young Circle Park and Downtown Hollywood have been reinvented, and the Broadwalk has undergone a major renovation, with beautiful brick pavers along most of the 2.5-mile stretch. Hollywood, FL is a unique slice of South Florida that you might have missed on your ride through South Broward on I-95, the Florida Turnpike, or on Tri-Rail.
