Originally designed and conceptualized by Mary Brickell in the early 1920s, this enclave was meant to be a very walkable community, with its wide streets, roundabouts, and wide sidewalks.
While it was supposed to be a community with affordable homes, the popularity of the locality has made it one of the most sought after, and therefore more expensive, areas to live in. Of course, when residents here are asked about the reasons why they love living in the area, the answers are often the same.
The walkability, beauty, cleanliness, and closeness to city centers without actually being in the middle of the hustle and bustle are some of the usual replies to such questions. The area is family friendly and charming, with neighbors enjoying not only the surroundings but also the company of fellow residents in the area.
There are many interesting places for people to explore near this enclave, and these include historical sites like the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens located just southwest of the community.
