Floral Park, Santa Ana, CA
Floral Park is a lovely neighborhood located in the northern tip of Santa Ana, California, that proudly features over 600 vintage custom homes. Built from the 1920s through the 1960s, these unique residences are eagerly sought after when they become homes for sale.
After World War I in the early 1920's, soldiers returned, and they designed their homes to be replicas of the charming English and French Norman Tudor cottages, dignified Italian homes, red-tiled-roof Spanish Colonial Revival villas, as well as Early American architecture. They found that easy to accomplish in Floral Park, and those homes are still available today along with newer ranch-style homes. The Neighborhood Association works diligently to preserve the beauty and character of this fine neighborhood.
This is also an active community, One eagerly awaited event is the annual Home and Garden Tour, which will be held on the weekend of April 26 and 27, 2014, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Added to the magnificent homes and gardens that will be open for viewing for thousands of visitors, the Street of Treasures will offer high quality collectibles for sale.
