What you will love about this home
Our home is within a golf club gated community and we're equally distant (25 min) from the 2 international airports in S. FL: Miami (MIA) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL). The house is very spacious in "U" shape with all but 1 space with large sliding doors facing a courtyard with pool. We have a huge Master Bedroom and 2 other bedrooms with queen size beds. Fully equipped kitchen, 3 TVs, and lots of space to hang out. The neighborhood has walking and biking paths. This is a typical modern South Florida home with tile & hardwood floors and a very open floor layout.
What you will love in the neighborhood
This is a quiet, well kept, clean community. Yet right outside it we have several shops, 3 top supermarkets, a famous wine store and bars and cafes all within 1km radius. The neighborhood (I'm referring to it as the community) is called Grand Palms. It is private and gated. It consists of a number of subdivisions. Our subdivision is called Bel Aire. Each subdivision has between 50 & 100 houses (roughly). In the community there's a golf course, gym, sports courts, biking & walking trails. Just outside the gates (50-300m) there are terrific restaurants, cafes, supermarkets and all other types of support services like dry-cleaners, professional services (dentists, doctors, etc.) and within 5 min drive you have bike shops, home stores (Home Depot, Lowes), movie theaters and many other attractions.
The community has miles of paved walking trails for walking and biking. Within the community there's also tennis and mini-soccer courts although these require a fee. Within 5min there's a big public park (CB Smith) with trails, tennis courts, barbeque grills and tables.
