Top 5 Things You May Not Know About High Pines | Ponce Davis
Two communities far from the limelight but close to the hearts of Miami locals, High Pines and Ponce Davis, are South Miami hidden gems in demand with residents looking for privacy, exclusivity, and big Miami-style luxury residential living with a small-town personality.
High Pines is a little hamlet between South Miami and the Ponce Davis area, conveniently located smack in the center of the City Pleasant, boasting wide, tree-shaded boulevards and neighborhood residential streets.
Meanwhile, Ponce Davis is a suburban pocket within an already-notable surrounding area, tucked away from the bustling metropolis but close to downtown Miami and the financial district.
Yet, despite their alluring appeal, I bet most of you don't know a thing or two about High Pines nor Ponce Davis, and you know what?
You're not alone!

A Home To World War II Veterans
One of Miami's oldest communities, the High Pines neighborhood blossomed as World War II veterans returned to Miami to start new lives, lured by the warm weather and their wartime memories.
Since High Pines was close to an array of job opportunities, it was the perfect neighborhood to start over.
Most veterans began working for the Holsum Bakery at the crossroads of Sunset and Red Road.
A Community With Tasteful Modernity
