It's a friendly neighborhood, Michael Vonder Meulen, president of Poinsettia Heights Civic Association says of the neighborhood.
Drive through this neighborhood and enjoy some of Florida's best tropical landscape designs by award winning landscape designer, Luis Llenza.
Numerous homes built in the late '40s and early '50s are approximately 1,000 to 1,700 square feet. Newer, recently built homes have as much as 3,000 square feet under air. Many older homes have been updated with new kitchens, swimming pools and other updates, according to Mr. Vonder Meulen. Poinsettia Heights is a slice of Americana, is how he describes his neighbors and the neighborhood.
THE FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD . . .
Some of the mid 20th century built homes have streamlined architecture, some have Art Deco touches. Newer homes embrace the Georgian style, with hip roofs, porches and balconies.
Town homes have also become part of the landscape. All homeowners take pride in their front yard gardens. The neighborhood is continually active in improving entryways and surrounding areas into the neighborhood. It's a neighborhood where neighbors look out for each other.
It's close to a wonderful French bakery, a variety of restaurants, two groceries, and two A-rated schools, an elementary and middle school, as well as several houses of worship. It is safe and friendly, convenient to downtown and Fort Lauderdale Beach, and great restaurants and shops. All these pluses make Poinsettia Heights a sought-after neighborhood in which to live.
