One of the most lovely areas in New Smyrna Beach our historic downtown. Situated between US1 and the river on either side of Canal Street, a short walk will find youself immersed in a beautiful blend of older and newer architecture. Some homes date back to the late 1800’s and have been lovingly maintained and restored. Many historic homes have been recognized with a placard that can be noted that the front entry way. When these homes have been cared for and maintained they can offer some of the most unique and intriguing living spaces in town. From high ceilings with gorgeous original moldings, to formal dining rooms, and even a basement here and there (basements in Florida are not common). The quality of construction in the early 1900’s is evident given the number of weather events these homes have endured and stood the test of time. If a home with character is on your list, don’t overlook this historic area of New Smyrna Beach.
