Southland Park Homes for Sale
Historic neighborhoods of West Palm Beach
Early 20th-century charm is abundant as you drive through Southland Park, one of West Palm Beach’s most iconic historic neighborhoods. The area is reminiscent of a 1920’s era Palm Beach, in which steel and railroad magnets claimed land and called this quiet serene land by the water home.
Most of the homes you’ll find in Southland Park today were built before 1941, and dominant architectural stylings from this period are everywhere you look. Mediterranean Revival-style homes can be found from South Dixie to Flagler, featuring signature elements such as Terracotta roofs, elegant and spacious courtyards surrounded by arcade patios, and custom tile and iron work. You’ll also find many Spanish Mission-style homes throughout the neighborhood, with their simple exterior design, flat roofs and barrel tiles, and signature stucco textures.
You’ll also find colonial styled homes, with large, open floor space and robust columns and struture. The lots in Southland Park are usually large – at least 100 feet of frontage. If a historic home is not of your interest, plenty of homes for sale in this neighborhood have been built in the last forty years.
One of the nicest things about Southland Park is the proximity to Flagler Drive, and the intracoastal waters. From anywhere in the neighborhood boundaries of Monceaux Rd. and Monroe Dr., the Flagler walkway next to the water is only two blocks away, where residents can enjoy a long morning walk or jog, or bike ride.
Southland Park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2011. The Southland Park neighborhood association is a member of the Southend Neighborhood Association of West Palm Beach, an active group of homeowners who are always working towards inclusion and protection of the historic legacy of our beautiful West Palm Beach neighborhoods.
