In this episode of Hearty Home, I’m going to share my top three Pembroke Pines neighborhoods that you’ve got to check out. We’ll look at each community’s location, amenities, housing options, and prices so you can choose the area that fits you best.
Living In Broward County
Happy New Year, and welcome to 2022! If you’re ready to make a move to Broward County this year, these are the top three neighborhoods you just might want to check out, especially if you're looking for active family life.
Every day, people relocate here and ask us which is the best neighborhood to live in. I can't speak on your behalf, but I can show you three of my top favorites. We’ll start our list with the first great Pembroke Pines neighborhood: Pembroke Falls.
Pembroke Falls is located in West Broward, nestled between I-75 and the Turnpike off of Pines Boulevard, south of Sheridan, and north of Pembroke Road. If you need to commute, this community is an easy 30 minutes from Fort Lauderdale Airport and 30 minutes from Miami.
Pembroke Falls is a masterplan community, which means that it is a large-scale community that offers a variety of recreational and commercial amenities. This gated community consists of about 27,000 residents, making it one of the biggest communities in Pembroke Pines. Pembroke Falls also makes up about 10 to 12 subdivisions surrounded by lush landscaping.
Home Options And Pricing
Some of the homes in Pembroke Falls are 10 to 15 years old, though they do contain many updates. Many of the properties are one to two stories and about 2,200 square feet to 5,000 square feet. These beautiful homes typically also feature anywhere from two to six bedrooms. This area is in high demand with very low inventory, which means it's a very competitive community to get into.
While the median price range is $545,000, housing costs depend on the size of your home. For example, the average four-bedroom, single-family home is roughly $685,000. If you opt for a three-bedroom, single-family home, expect to pay about $500,000. Alternatively, if you're looking to rent in the area, you can plan on spending $1,400 to $1,500 per month.
One of the reasons people like living in this location is because of the school system and family-friendly community. Pembroke Falls’ top-rated schools are Lakeside Elementary, Walter C. Young Middle School, and Charles W. Flanagan High School.
Pembroke Falls is located in a multicultural community that’s surrounded by mom-and-pop businesses of all types. One of the biggest parks in the area is C.B. Smith Park, which even boasts its own water park inside. All the kids love playing here, especially in summer. Pembroke Falls also offers a 1,800 square foot community clubhouse with instructional classes, eight tennis courts, three basketball courts, and well-maintained playgrounds. You’ll definitely want to check this neighborhood out.
The second neighborhood you need to check out is Eagle Creek. This community is also located in Pembroke Pines and is nestled between South Flamingo Road, Pembroke Road, and Hiatus road. Eagle Creek is also conveniently located, with about a 30-minute drive to the airport and 30 minutes to Miami.
Eagle Creek features mid-sized homes, with properties in this community having been built between 1989 and 1997. Eagle Creek is also deed restricted, which means they have an HOA. Most of their homes range in size from three to four bedrooms and two to three bathrooms.
The median price range in Eagle Creek is about $565,000, again depending on size. For example, the average four-bedroom single-family home in Eagle Creek is roughly about $560,000. A three-bedroom home here will cost roughly $450,000.
One thing you should be aware of is that you’ll definitely need a vehicle in this area. Eagle Creek is close to Memorial West Hospital and is among some of the top-rated schools in Broward County. These include Palm Cove Elementary School, Walter C. Young Middle School, and Charles W. Flanagan High School.
One of the reasons people love living in this location is because of the family-friendly community. You’ll also have a plentiful variety of shopping and dining options to choose from, making it a great choice to experience Broward County living.
The third neighborhood you need to check out in Pembroke Pines is Century Village. This is a bit of a change in direction from the previous neighborhoods, as this community is for the active 55 and older. After all, grandparents and active seniors need a sunny place to stay, too. You’ll find Century Village located right here in Pembroke Pines.
Century Village’s homes were all built between 1970 and 1995. This is also a deed restricted community, which means there's an HOA. Century Village at Pembroke Pines is comprised of 7,700 low-maintenance condos with scenic views of community golf courses and lakes.
If you’re looking to settle in this community, the average two-bedroom condo in Century Village is roughly $269,000. If you’re looking for something smaller, a one-bedroom condo costs roughly $130,000.
One of the several reasons people like living in Century Village is because of the resort-style amenities you can take advantage of here. For example, residents have access to a clubhouse and an 18-hole golf course.
This is a great community for active, retired, or semi-retired residents. Century Village’s 135,000 square foot clubhouse includes an over 1-000 seat theater and a party room that can hold over 900 attendees. Because it’s a gated community, there’s manned security to add a feeling of safety for residents. Because it offers endless amenities to its residents, this is a popular Pembroke Pines choice for those 55 and older.
