Northwood Hills is one of the most unique and interesting neighborhoods in West Palm Beach. Its centerpiece is a figure-eight street layout surrounding the highest natural peaks in South Florida at 44 feet above sea level. A wide variety of architecture exists in Northwood Hills, ranging from the 1920’s-1950’s. Some of the city’s finest and most unique homes were built here because of the topography and walkability of the circular streets.
What was once a backwoods suburb with rum runners selling illegal booze from their Spanish castles is now a community-oriented neighborhood in the heart of the city. While it is still a sleepy neighborhood, it is located just 4 blocks from Northwood Village where you can find funky restaurants, art, music, and shoppes. Being just 3 miles from the beach and downtown means you never have to venture far to enjoy the best parts of South Florida living.
We are proud to announce the winner for November’s Home of the Month is Bob Beaulieu at 931 39th Ct.
This majestic, two-story home has been meticulously restored and maintained. Details such as the two-toned paint and wrought iron porch screen give Villa Olivia a refined appearance. The yard is masterfully designed and gives the feel of a mature, European country garden, all while being truly xeriscape. Bob sets the bar for us all to strive for. Thank you, Bob for everything you do to make our neighborhood beautiful!
This years’ Home of the Month program is sponsored by
Elizabeth Bridges with Douglas Elliman Real Estate.
Historic Northwood Hills Home of the Month program recognizes a different homeowner for their efforts in beautifying their home’s exterior and yard. The criteria for this program is rather simple; Historic Northwood Hills is looking for a visually appealing façade and a well-maintained property to recognize each month.
After a home is nominated and wins, a sign is placed in the yard, the home is recognized in our newsletter and website, and a special prize is awarded through a sponsorship program. Please nominate a neighbor and show them you appreciate their efforts!
The Beautification Committee meets once a month on Sundays from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm. Volunteers come together to clean and maintain the public areas in our neighborhood. Various projects include picking up litter, clearing out overgrown brush in roundabouts, planting flowers in traffic calmers, etc.
With Northwood Hills being a voluntary neighborhood association, our Fundraising Committee is a key element to our success. Meetings include creating opportunities to raise funds with activities for our residents as well as income-generating events offered outside of our neighborhood.
Our Social Committee meetings bring volunteers together to brainstorm fun events that encourage neighbors to get out and meet each other. This committee is responsible for securing venues, creating a budget, choosing dates, and the overall planning details for these social events.
Home Tour Committee
Organizing and planning a public event with an expected 1,000 people in attendance is no small feat. The Home Tour Committee meets regularly to design timelines for the tour, create tasks, choose vendors, shop estimates, etc. As Northwood Hills’ largest fundraising event, this committee also works closely with our Board of Directors.
