    Botaniko Weston | Contemporary Homes For Modern Day Buyers

    Looking for a contemporary home in Weston? Botaniko is the place to be

     

    For those buyers looking for a large home in the Weston area there is a lot of choice. In Doral, Weston Hills and Parkland Country Club we find many superb and large single family homes. Most of these homes however are Mediterranean style homes. Today’s buyer or at least a majority of buyers prefer the modern, more contemporary lay out and aesthetic. Many buyers also prefer brand new homes over resale properties. With personal taste or resale value in mind many buyers are therefore looking for contemporary and luxurious homes.

    A high-end community like Parkland Country Club for example has few contemporary homes. Even the brand new homes are constructed in the Mediterranean style. Homes in Parkland Country Club very between $500,000 and $2,5M or $124 – $400 per SF.

    Building a contemporary home here or remodeling a Mediterranean home into a contemporary home will costs you about $300 to $400 per SF (this is without the demolishing costs of the old home) and that is beside the cost of land which will approximately have a value of $700,000 to $800,000 for a 20,000 SF lot. As the average home size is 4,500 SF or more, you easily spend $3M on a brand new and contemporary home.

    The Best and Most Affordable Modern, contemporary and expansive homes in Weston

    Botaniko in Weston offers expansive single-family homes in a gated community which all cater to the requirements of today’s demanding buyers. The modern day lay-outs or so called flows, the latest in finishes and that contemporary feel in a private setting.

    For example a 4 bedroom home at Botanika with media room, staff quarters and a summer kitchen, offers 4,188 sf of exquisite indoor areas and 2,547 sf of expansive outdoor areas, totaling 6,735 sf of combined living space with an integrated swimming area and attached three-car garage.

    • 4 Bedroom residences start at $1,898,900
    • 5 Bedroom residences start at $1998,900
    • 6 Bedroom residences starts at $2,800,900

    You could not construct a home like this at your own account as these prices are very competitive and due to the projects great economies of scale.

    Weston – Why this City is a preferred choice among many families

    Weston is located at about 35 miles from Miami. This picture perfect community offers a great community life, clubs, parks, entertainment and A-Rated schools. Despite most investors focussing purely on Miami, Weston has become a favorite among local families. Many families or even young professionals are looking into Weston as the range of real estate options is broad and prices are only a fraction of those you will pay in likewise neighborhoods in or around Miami such as the Gables or Coconut Grove. You will find a large variety of homes in prices ranging from $320,000 in a popular community such as Savanna to $5 million dollar homes in Windmill Ranches and even new construction such as Botaniko Weston starting at 1.8 Millon.

    In this blog we will explain you a little bit more about the community of Weston

    Take the helicopter ride above Weston!

    Weston is Family Friendly

    One of the best Miami suburbs for families is Weston. The most western city in Broward County, Weston is home to 65,300 residents and shares its western border with the Florida Everglades.  Weston has been ranked in CNNMoney’s “Best Places to Live in America” and Family Circle’s “Ten Best Places for Families”.  This is a also a safe choice to make a home – ranked no 5 in the most safest list in the whole of florida, with a violent crime rating of 91.9 and the chance of being involved in a property crime less than 1%.

    Weston has a great “small town” vibe. Most of the communities are very tight knit and you get to know your neighbors. Weston is a very family-minded city and residents take pride in the synergy between families and the community and almost everything seems to revolve around the families – BBQ’s in the back yard, family picnics etc. There is a number of golf course and sports clubs such as ‘Midtown Athletic Club’. Weston is also home to a good amount of cozy restaurants.

    There are plenty of soccer clubs, parks, social gatherings and I noticed it is very easy to park. I went there during what I figured would be rush hour traffic, but there was no traffic to speak of. Come evening time there is no crazy ‘South Beach’ vibe going on.

    It’s not overpopulated like a lot of areas in South Florida but it’s still close to shopping centers, restaurants, night life, malls, and major highways. You can easily get on the highway and head to Ft. Lauderdale, Hollywood, or Miami beach all within a 20-30 minute drive.

    Why CNN voted Weston as the 8th best place to live in 2016

     

    Green Space: Weston residents enjoy the kind of open space you won’t find in many places in the country. About 25 miles to the east is the Atlantic Ocean and on its western flank is the Everglades, a resource that’s so iconic, there’s a likeness of it right on Weston’s town crest. Furhtermore, Weston is home to a dozen sports fields, nearly 50 miles of lined bike lanes, and the 100-acre Weston Regional Park.

    Location: Located within easy commuting distance of Miami and Fort Lauderdale, this planned community also offers abundant employment options, at companies including Cleveland Clinic Florida and Ultimate Software.

    Economic Opportunity: Weston is at the top of our list for economic opportunity, a category driven largely by purchasing power. That means residents have to sink less of their household income (the median is $99,690 a year) to buy a home than residents in most places around the country.

    Family-friendly: All the public schools have earned an A average from Florida’s Department of Education. “Weston,” says Pam Fishman, a stay-at-home mom and New York City transplant, “offers a truly wonderful quality of life.”

    Schools in Weston

    Weston offers a great choice of schools which are located in and outside of the city. There are public schools, charters schools, private schools and religious schools. Naturally the biggest element when choosing a city best suited for the raising of children is the school system. Top schools include: American Heritage and Cyprus Bay, which has increased its student population by over 1,000 new students in the last couple of years.

    As can we seen by clicking on the link on the right hand side, Weston as a city scores 9 out of 10 for their schools, based on the test results of Weston Schools. All of Weston’s public schools can be seen in this report as well as their ratings.

    Some excellent Private schools are:

    American Heritage
    Cyprus Bay 

    According to new rankings released by U.S. News & World Report, Cypress Bay High School in Weston, ranks No. 19 in the state and No. 253 in the nation.

    Real Estate in Weston

    Weston is visually distinctive, Weston’s extensive landscaping is without dispute one of the City’s greatest assets: rows of prestigious Royal Palms and city entry signs surrounded by lush foliage which also lines the berms, medians and rights-of-ways throughout the city.

    As the city itself is well-maintained which encourages residents to take care of their properties as well. The majority of Weston’s homes are well kept with superb landscaping

    Initially conceived as a master-planned community, Weston was incorporated in 1996. Well managed growth has given rise to one of South Florida’s most desirable communities, both residential and corporate. As the city is relatively new, so are most of Weston’s homes which means you don’t have to worry too much about having to deal with a lot of the problems that are associated with older buildings.

    One of our favorite projects in Weston at this moment is Botaniko. Botaniko in Weston is a 120-acre gated community. The elegant and private enclave offers 125 modern and luxurious single family homes. Botaniko Weston has been created and designed for the whole family to enjoy together. Being surrounded by open green spaces makes it a wonderful place to live, play, and entertain, with a quality of life and natural beauty that are unsurpassed in the surrounding area.

    Two Stunning brand new homes – Same City, Same Architect. $33 MILLION price difference!

    The two homes below are both built by Chad Oppenheim, one of the world’s most renown architects. Both homes are located near Miami, One in Bal Harbour and one in Weston. How come one is listed for $36M and one is listed for $2,8m

    One house is in Bal Harbour, the chic oceanfront town just North of Miami Beach once known for its excellent shopping at the Bal Harbour Shops and pre-dominantly a condo market. One house is located in Botaniko Weston, a gated and brand new luxurious residential community in a new and upcoming Miami area that is ideal to raise a family. We must note that the house in Bal Harbour offers 13,500 SF of living area while this specific home in Botaniko Weston is just over 7,000 SF. Also the Bal Harbour home is waterfront which isn’t the case for the Botaniko Weston homes.

    Now the Bal Harbour home by the exact same architect is listed for $2,667 per SF while the Botaniko Weston homes are listed around $500 per SF. That is 5 times the price!!

    Compare both properties here:

    252 BAL BAY DR in Bal Harbour

    8 Bedrooms |  9,5 Bathrooms | 13,500 SF | $36M / $2,667 per SF

    The ultimate subtropical modern oasis. This just completed, museum-quality residence was impeccably designed by award-winning architect Chad Oppenheim in the most exclusive and secure community in Bal Harbour. The residence was masterfully designed to seamlessly blur the lines of indoor-outdoor with over 17,000 sqft of living space. Experience spectacular water and sunset views from a vantage point just 300 yards from one of only 2 inlets in Miami Beach, where the ocean meets the bay.

    The Residences at Botaniko Weston

    6 Bedrooms |  9,5  Bathrooms | 7,138 SF | $3M / Around $500 per SF

    The Botaniko Residences are located in a 120-acre gated community. The elegant and private enclave offers 125 modern and luxurious single family homes. The superb team involved in this project, the quality of life that the city of Weston has to offer and the elegance of the community are just some of the points that make this project stand out.
    The one – and two- story residences range between 4,200 and 7,200 SF in interior space and offer staff quarters plus 2 or 3 car garages. The community’s security is provided by a gatehouse staffed 24 hours a day with security cameras and state-of-the-art closed circuit television. Residents also enjoy concierge service, interior designs by V-Starr Interiors, founded by Venus Williams, outdoor entertaining with a private pool, summer kitchen, and premium appliances and lush landscapes and master plan by Jefre Figures Manuel.
    Botaniko Weston has been created and designed for the whole family to enjoy together. Being surrounded by open green spaces makes it a wonderful place to live, play, and entertain, with a quality of life and natural beauty that are unsurpassed in the surrounding area.

    If you are set on waterfront real estate, then the Bal Harbour option, or anything waterfront might get your preference. However if you don’t have $35M (or anything above $5M) to spend and you still want that high quality lifestyle in a luxurious residence with the finest finishes by a renown architect then Botaniko Weston will offer the home of your dreams.  Imagine the security and privacy that comes with a high-end residence in a natural and lush environment surrounded by top rated schools

    What town was voted the the no.1 choice for families in Florida?

    Where is the Best Place to buy in Weston?

    I feel very fortunate to have helped a considerable number of families buy real estate in South Florida over the last 10 years. Families not just from within the US (New York, Maryland, DC, Chicago), but also from much further afield (Brazil, UK, France, Argentina and even India)!

    Sometimes families move for work or to have a second home, but increasingly and rather sadly it is because the economic, infrastructural or social situation in their own country has gotten so bad that a permanent move is not only desired but required. Take Brazil and Turkey as two good current examples where the situation has pushed so many to Florida, looking for a better life.

    There are plenty of good places to move to in South Florida’s tri-county market (Palm Beach, Broward and Dade), but if you are curious to know the No1 choice you may be surprised; It is Weston!

    What town was voted the the no.1 choice for families in Florida?

    The most western city in Broward County, Weston is home to 65,300 residents and shares its western border with the Florida Everglades. Weston has been ranked in CNNMoney’s “Best Places to Live in America” and Family Circle’s “Ten Best Places for Families”. Weston is also a safe choice to make a home – ranked as the 5th safest city in the whole of Florida, with a violent crime rating of 91.9 and the chance of being involved in a property crime being less than 1%.

    Yes, I was surprised as well. I am not a journalist, nor am I part of the ‘Weston Tourist Board”. In fact I do not even live in Weston! I am a father of two and so I do appreciate the importance of living somewhere that is good not just for me, but for my family. I live in Coral Gables which I love, and think it is a superb place (but it only came in at No 21 on the previously ranked list – which surprised me!).

    So I got into my car and took a drive to Weston. I met with a number of locals and top agents to get more information on this No1 ranked city.

    First off, people who live in Weston are very proud to be ‘Westonites’ and take great personal pride in the look, feel and community they have. One word that kept coming up in conversations was ‘synergy’. Synergy between families and between the communities. It is a diverse community indeed (in fact 39.5% of the population was born outside of the US), but also a very educated one with 58% of the population having a degree or advanced degree. The ‘tech’ business seems to be the dominant business here, as well as the ‘Cleveland Clinic’ who also employs a significant number of medical staff.

    There are plenty of soccer clubs, parks, social gatherings and I noticed it is very easy to park. I went there during what I figured would be rush hour traffic, but there was no traffic to speak of. Come evening time there is no crazy ‘South Beach’ vibe going on. It has some nice restaurants but almost everything seems to revolve around the families; BBQ’s in the back yard, family picnics etc. There is a number of golf courses and sports clubs, such as ‘Midtown Athletic Club’.

    Naturally the biggest element when choosing a city best suited for the raising of children is the school system. Top schools include: American Heritage and Cyprus Bay, which has increased its student population by over 1,000 new students in the last couple of years.

    So where is the best place to buy in Weston?
