More About Boca Raton Hills 

There are multiple neighborhoods all within one greater area that I like to refer to as Boca Raton Hills. There is Cedar Ridge, Sunset Ridge, Vista Hills and University Hills.

The neighborhood of Boca Raton Hills is another one of those great neighborhoods. It's a relatively unknown that offers great value in an amazing location here in East Boca Raton.

The neighborhood is located just east of I95, just west of NW 2nd Ave and south of Spanish River Blvd.

It's walkable to a handful of small retail plazas that have stuff like Seeds and Panera in it. And it's less than two miles from the beach.

It's also very close to some great lunch spots, such as the Cuban Cafe, the D'Best sandwich shop, Italia's Tuscan Table, and if you want to grab a beer, you can go to Prosperity Brewers.

Additionally, there's a handful of great breakfast spots that are close by, but one specifically is very close. And it's common for people from the different neighborhoods in this area to go to. It's called The Griddle.

Another great geographic feature of this neighborhood is that it's less than a mile to Publix, which makes it super efficient to do your grocery shopping any time you want. And it's less than 5 minutes to Mizner Park and 15 minutes or less to downtown Atlantic Ave in Delray Beach.

The neighborhood is also right next to Florida Atlantic University and Palm Beach State College. It's super easy to access both of those via walking or biking. You can go straight down Spanish River Blvd and get into the universities, or you can take the sign entrance, which a lot of students do. There's a little bridge that crosses over the El Rio Canal and gets you right into both Palm Beach State College and Florida Atlantic University.

And on top of that, Lynn University is a straight shot right down Spanish River Boulevard, less than three miles away.

It's also super easy to access 95 because it's right off Spanish River Blvd. And you could just jump on Spanish River Blvd and within 2 minutes you're on 95 north or south, very efficiently.

And because you're so close to 95, it makes it really easy to get to the airport. Whether you're going to West Palm Beach or Fort Lauderdale. Both are about 30 minutes or so away.

The neighborhoods in the Boca Raton Hills area are located in an A-rated school district. The elementary school is J.C. Mitchell, the middle school is Boca Raton Community Middle, and the high school is Boca Raton Community High.

There's about 360 single family homes in this neighborhood, and they were built between 1951 and 1988. And there's a couple outliers that were built in the early 2000s.

The typical size of a home in this neighborhood will range between 1,000 and I've seen as high as 3,300 square feet. But most homes will be around the 2,000 square foot area. You can expect 2 to 5 bedrooms in any of these homes in this neighborhood with the average about three bedrooms on average, you'll see between two and three bathrooms in each home.

Here, the lot sizes will range pretty broadly here between 8,500 and about 17,500. So you can get lots in this neighborhood that are relatively big for Boca. And you can expect a range of construction types, different builders, built homes at different times in this neighborhood. So you can see that there might be some wood frame construction in this neighborhood, as well as mostly concrete block, almost might have carports, they might have garages, and typically they're single storey, ranch style homes.

Another big reason why a lot of people love this neighborhood is because there's no HOA.

One thing that's very unique about this neighborhood is that on the south end where we're standing right now, there are properties that are zoned differently. They're not all zoned residential specifically. And as you can tell behind me, there's a church and then there's some other properties that are zoned as daycare cars and other things. So there are some small businesses scattered through the south end of this neighborhood, which is very rare for a community here in Boca Raton.

The neighborhoods of Boca Raton Hills are definitely on my list as some of the top neighborhoods to invest in here in Boca Raton, because I think there's a lot of upside in the long term.

One reason why I think this neighborhood has great potential for price growth and appreciation. Long term, like five, ten, 15 years down the road is because I think there's some redevelopment opportunity here. Not like large redevelopment, like massive projects, but small redevelopment like one off custom home builds. We're seeing that in other neighborhoods and I think eventually that progress hits this neighborhood long term.

Penn-Florida is planning to build 829 residential units, including lofts, apartments and assisted living facilities across the street from this neighborhood. A 183-unit hotel, 70,000 square feet of office space. 130,000 square feet of retail on the ground floor of all those residential units and an extensive network of jogging, biking and walking trails.
