Surfside Real Estate
Surfside began emerging after World War II and it was founded on May 18, 1935. It was incorporated through the signatures of 35 members of the Surf Club, a gathering place for the rich and famous. Guests included Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor, among many others. Also known as Miami’s Uptown Beachtown, Surfside has earned a reputation as both a superb family community and a premier travel destination. It encompasses the area from 87th Terrace to 96th Street, between the City of Miami Beach to the South and the Village of Bal Harbour to the North.
Originally developed as winter vacation homes for wealthy families from the up North East and with nearly 6,000 residents today, Surfside is a beautiful pedestrian-friendly oceanfront community, featuring residential and multi-family condominium and apartment buildings, a pristine public beach, parks, playgrounds, a recreational facility which includes a state-of-the-art Community Center and Aquatics Facility. Its three-block business and commercial district is bustling with restaurants, unique shops, boutiques, and services, which many are operated by small business owners.
Built in 1962, the neighborhood has a Community Center, which is a unique multi-purpose facility that houses the Surf-Bal-Bay Library, the Tourist Bureau and the Recreation Department and features an Olympic size swimming pool, a toddlers’ pool, public beach access, a snack bar, meeting rooms and an auditorium for shows, special events and receptions. Other communities and recreational facilities include the Tennis Center, Surfside Park and Hawthorne Park Tot Lot, all of which have been extensively renovated in the last few years and are open exclusively to all residents year round.
One thing that sets Surfside apart is its commitment to the quality of life of its residents. Old and new houses are mixed together in harmony while maintaining that relaxing and charming beach town neighborhood setting.
