630 University Drive, Coral Gables, FL

List Price: $2,339,000

There aren’t enough adjectives to describe this amazing house.  It’s Hollywood glamorous, Palm Beach sophisticated, and totally relaxed and inviting like South Florida is!  This beauty on historical University Drive in Coral Gables was completely re-designed and renovated in 2014 by famed NY designers, and has only periodically been used as a second home since then. It’s magazine perfect inside and out – take a look at the pictures and see for yourself!

Recently Sold By Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables Beatrice Row, No. 6

2521 Anderson Road, Coral Gables, FL 33134

List Price: $2,400,000

It was love at first sight for me when I visited Beatrice Row.  I’ve long thought there is a missing link in Coral Gables with respect to residential living style.   Coral Gables is dominated by single family homes, and there are ample condo communities, but when a Buyer is looking for a Villa or Townhome there are slim pickings.  MG Developers filled that void with Beatrice Row, and will do the same in the future with nearby Althea Row and Biltmore Row.

Beatrice Row was the perfect solution  for these ’empty nest’ Buyers who hesitated with the concept of condo living which restricted their size and privacy, and had tired of the daily maintenance machine of home ownership.  Honestly, there were three ‘must haves’ when they left Pinecrest for a newer frontier: she wanted space and enough bedrooms for adult children to return, he needed a killer kitchen and the ability to grill outside, and they both needed a shorter commute to work.  

It was a match made in heaven.  These nine Georgian-style Villas are not only beautiful but so very spacious (4 bedrooms/4.5 baths) and although 3-floors they are equipped with an elevator. The kitchen, butlers pantry, and built-in summer kitchen are to die for (and so is the outside covered terrace), and the location speaks for itself.  Quietly staged on Anderson Road & Valencia Avenue, one can stroll the tree-lined streets of beautiful homes or enjoy the more urban area just steps away. 

Congrats to the greatest buyers and longtime friends, the wonderful MG Developers, and Fortune Realty – who worked so hard to make it happen.

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Key Biscayne The Towers of Key Biscayne, No. C1007

1111 Crandon Boulevard No. C1007, Key Biscayne, FL

List Price: $1,128,000

The Towers of Key Biscayne is the best kept secret on the island (and my Buyers thought the same after an extensive 5 month search). Tucked away at the very end of Crandon Boulevard adjacent to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, it really is nothing short of heavenly.  I would love living there and waking up to the beach everyday, but there’s so much more at The Towers of Key Biscayne! Every lucky resident of The Towers has the luxury of an in-house beauty salon and restaurant (the only community on the island with both!), and the pure enjoyment of top-notch facilities, two wonderful pools, and the most beautiful meandering gardens.  It is a slice of paradise and these lucky buyers will love every minute of every day!  Congratulations to the Buyers, the Seller, and the most wonderful realtor:)

Just Sold By Valaree Byrne and Vanessa Kayes The Towers of Key Biscayne, No. B301

1111 Crandon Boulevard No. B301, Key Biscayne, FL

List Price: $1,149,000

I’ve lived in Miami all of my life and every time I am on “The Key” (local slang for Key Biscayne), I am overwhelmed with the natural beauty we Miamians are blessed with.  Vanessa and I listed this beachfront condominium a few months ago and every showing we had was nothing short of inspirational and energizing for us. With wrap around views of Key Biscayne’s beautiful beach, the Atlantic Ocean AND Biscayne Bay, and magnificent Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, I think this “Estoril” model at Towers of Key Biscayne was bar none the ‘pick of the litter’  in this wonderful village-like resort community.  Congratulations to the Sellers, the Buyers, and two fantastic realtors!

Just Listed by Valaree Byrne in North Pinecrest ‘Villa Flora’ at 5762 SW 100 Street

5762 SW 100th Street, Pinecrest, FL

List Price: $2,149,000

‘Villa Flora’ truly lives up to it’s name!  The landscape at that property is so SPECTACULAR!  I’m plant and tree crazy, so meandering around the grounds is heavenly because the Oaks are magnificent, the Palms majestic, and orchids are blooming everywhere. As one would imagine the home is as remarkable inside as it is outside, with a hint of Tuscany blended in a casual South Florida way.  Anyone who likes to entertain will flip for this updated residence because there  are so many fantastic spaces to host, and they all open onto splendid courtyards and terraces.  The icing on this cake is the little community it lies in, Palms Estates, a little gated enclave of only 6 homes just a few steps away from my favorite Pinecrest hotspots, Pinecrest Wayside Market (home to the greatest smoothies), and Hirni’s Wayside Garden.  You can’t see this home from the gate – you’ll just have to come see it for yourself!

List Price: $275,000

We love Ponce Towers in Coral Gables! It’s not too big and not too small, and in just the right location.  One can walk to Miracle Mile or to the new Giralda Plaza, or jump on the Coral Gables Trolley right out front and zip over to the Shops at Merrick Park.  It’s urban living at its best, but once inside Ponce Towers you feel warmth, privacy, and luxury all around.  A 24-hour concierge graciously greets all who enter, and a beautiful lobby, fully outfitted gym, and fantastic pool make it so hard to leave!  If you are looking for a one bedroom home in Coral Gables, this could be it (and shhhh, it’s the lowest priced condo in the building)!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Palmetto Bay 15225 SW 80th Avenue

15225 SW 80th Avenue, Palmetto Bay, FL 33157

List Price: $999,000

I think Coral Reef Park in the Village of Palmetto Bay is one of the most beautiful parks in all of Miami-Dade County.  If one if lucky enough to live within walking distance to Coral Reef Park (like the Buyers and Sellers of this great residence in Lychee Grove Estates were), then you simply live in paradise!  Because of the excellent schools and highly desirable price point Palmetto Bay is a hot spot, and an updated home near the Park is a very hot commodity. When I first sold this home in April of 2016, it had only been on the market 48 hours before we made our offer.  Fast forward to April 2018, and an unexpected job relocation for the Seller, we were on the market less than three weeks! I was so sad to see the Sellers leave Miami, but delighted to see a wonderful family step in their place.  Congratulations and good luck to all!

List Price: $1,349,000

The inner designer in me loved this house!  By the time I was contacted to list this home in central Pinecrest much of the renovation was underway, but I could still see the metamorphosis that had taken place.  I list and sell a lot of mid-century homes in Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay, and this was one of the best transformations I have seen – the integrity of the original design was completely respected while a 21st century face lift was installed. The result was fantastic – a classic ranch style home now shines with a more contemporary persona.  Congratulations to delighful Buyers, their fantastic realtors, and a most wonderful Seller.  It was a pleasure working with all.

1140 Alfonso Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33146 

List Price: $2,850,000

Some of South Florida’s most beautiful and desirable properties are found on the Coral Gables waterways that meander into Biscayne Bay.  My favorite ‘waterway street’ is Alfonso Avenue – it’s quiet, tree-lined, and home to some spectacular residences.  We started ‘lightly looking’ for  a waterfront home in the Gables that wasn’t too big or too small and didn’t need too much work – these aare empty nesters that often have a house full of friends and family.  We were looking east of US1  because the 18′ bridge height was a must, and a boat house was on the ‘wish list’ (there are only 28 homes in Coral Gables with ‘grandfathered’ boat houses).  Over a year into the search up popped this fabulous home that met all of the criteria, and then some!  Great Buyers + Wonderful Seller = a happy and successful transaction.  Congratulations to all!
