This was a 2 Bedroom, 2 Bath home with a carport  including a screened patio and air conditioning for $34,990.  You could also convert the patio to a Florida room with sliding glass doors for $3,695.   The carport could also be converted to a garage for $1,075, or even a double garage for $2,050.

This home seems inexpensive,  however, this was back in 1970 and was pricey for the area.   As a private country club community, the Woodlands was much more expensive than its neighbors in Tamarac.  Maintenance fees were only $48 a month and included all lawn care, plus use of the recreational facilities.

If you haven’t been to the Woodlands yet, take a drive by and check out these unbelievable mid-century modern homes.

Thank you to Edie Green with Coldwell Banker for sharing these with me and the rest of our community.
