In a beautiful planned community not far from the nature preserve of Pine Island Ridge, Forest Ridge homes create a neighborhood appreciated for its unique lifestyle. The many houses across the eclectic subdivisions of Forest Ridge real estate offer a variety of options for the families who live there. With higher-end features such as in-ground pools, Berber carpets, and Roman tubs, the houses are all full of luxurious touches that echo the lifestyle of the residents. Since the 1,200 homes in the area range in size from 1,300 square feet to about 3,500 there is a range of affordability within the neighborhood, yet all the homeowners can take advantage of the community swimming pool and tennis courts. Plus, the tropical landscaping of the area provides a true “Florida atmosphere” for residents to enjoy all year round.
Families are often drawn to Forest Ridge homes because of the many options for recreation in and around the community. The city of Davie itself allows residents the charms of small town life within short driving distance to big cities like Miami with their shopping and leisure activities. Then, of course the 100-acres of the Pine Island Ridge nature preserve is an obvious draw for all the nature lovers in the area. Its oak, pine, and beautyberry create a fertile habitat for a wide variety of wildlife such as great horned owls, gopher tortoises, hawks, and even butterflies. It is a part of the “Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail,” and is easily accessible to Forest Ridge residents at its main entrance to Tree Tops Park. There are even equestrian trails available for horse-riding enthusiasts! Aside from the nature preserve, the 272-acres of Vista View Park offer residents even more ways to enjoy the outdoors. From playgrounds and fishing docks to primitive group camping opportunities and an airstrip for radio controlled planes, there’s something to enjoy for every member of the family. Forest Ridge is truly the perfect home for families who want to enjoy city life as well as the unique natural allure of Southern Florida.
The community understands the importance of educating their youth, and residents take full advantage of everything the Broward County Public School District has to offer their children.
