Homes for Sale in Pinecrest, Miami | Pinecrest Real Estate | MakeMiamiHome
The Village of Pinecrest is among the most desirable residential areas in South Florida. Located 20 minutes south of downtown Miami and Miami International Airport, Pinecrest encompasses just 8 square miles and is home to less than 20,000 residents.
Recognized as one of the most beautiful residential areas in South Florida, the Village’s natural beauty and top area schools enhance its desirability. Pinecrest residents enjoy a superior quality of life in a unique hometown rural atmosphere while benefiting from the many amenities of the Greater Miami area. During the 1950s and 1960s, the area flourished with the development and construction of large ranch-size homes on one-acre lots, which laid the foundation for Pinecrest's rural and lushly landscaped residential character.
Incorporated in 1996, Pinecrest is governed by a Village Council and has its own well-regarded municipal services including police, parks and recreation, building and planning services, and public works. The crown jewel of the Village’s park system is Pinecrest Gardens, set on the former site of the world-famous Parrot Jungle. Pinecrest Gardens offers a variety of programs, including summer camps and activities for all ages.
