"Nice older street with good house values, a well-kept secret..."

Close to just about anything in Daytona Beach, with the airport, mall, and beach only a few miles away, this mainland location offers mostly 50's and 60's era houses made of concrete block and was once a fairly prestigous upscale family development.

Winston Park was one of the "modern" developments in Daytona back in the 60's, so there is a lot of bungalow homes and some that look straight out of the Brady Bunch, but it is now a nice working class family area with a decent percent of retirees. It was an early family subdivision in Daytona that inspired places like nearby Fairway Estates later, but homes here are much less expensive.

The street is very convenient for public transportation, with Nova Road and Votran bus access right at the end of the street. The traffic flow in the development is minor, with the wide grass traffic median used by area kids for playing. There is a mix of families and retirees on the street, with slightly more retirees, with most homes and lawns usually kept very neat looking. Not a lot of traffic on the street, mostly just residents of the development.

House values on the street are lower than many areas of the mainland as most homes are smaller (1000-1400sq.ft.) and have carports instead of garages, so this is a good street to find a lower priced starter home or retirement house.

Schools in the area still leave a lot to be desired. The middle school had a reputation for being overcrowded, very tough and urban. The highschool just opened a huge brand new building, and is a very large school. There are private church schools close by on US-1 and further north on Nova for grades PK-8 that are popular choices for those who can afford that option. There are several daycare centers very near for working parents of little ones.

Shopping is convenient with 24 hour drugstore, malls, grocery stores, and convenience stores all within quick driving distance. Eating out offers a wealth of choices with a lot of fast food and sit down eateries withing a mile or two.

For the most part, it is a safe street, BUT there is a low rent 80's apartment complex that backs up to backyards on the North side of the street and there are pretty frequent crime issues in that complex, so homes on the South side of the street may be considered safer. Our family had a wedding reception at a house on the North side of the street a few years after the apartments opened and while the newly wed couple opened gifts in the living room, we had no idea some criminal scum were watching everything through the the back windows from the apartments across the back fence. When the party was over, my aunt ran to the corner store with her baby son and came back less that 15 minutes later to discover her back door jammed open and thieves still in her home. She escaped safely but lost a lot of irreplacable family items like her jewelry box to the break-in. Since then, the apartments have gotten even worse, so home security and an alarm system are not bad ideas for added safety.
