Just Listed by Valaree Byrne & Vanessa Kayes The Towers of Key Biscayne, 1111 Crandon Blvd., Unit B301

Living on the beach in Key Biscayne has been on my wish list for as long as I can remember.  So far it isn’t my reality, but give me some vacation time, and you will find me walking in the surf. I’m already envious of whomever buys our new listing at The Towers of Key Biscayne – they’ll be waking up to the Atlantic Ocean, white sandy beaches, and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park every day. If that’s too much sand in the shoes, there’s a lot more at The Towers like a private restaurant, tennis courts, a beauty salon, fantastic fitness room, media room, card & billiards rooms, and of course two glorious pools and a koi pond.  It’s a lot to take on, and that someone is going to be very, very lucky!

Need a great location, lots of space, and a style that has some pizazz?  That’s what these Seller were looking for when they purchased this fantastic ‘Hollub home’ a couple of years ago, but now they’re relocating! There are so many remarkable features at this gated residence – huge social spaces, glorious kitchen, divine master suite, vaulted ceilings, glorious pool & patio, and a full-house generator, just to name a few.

It gets even better! Just outside the private gated entry, only a few steps away, is the crown jewel of Palmetto Bay – Coral Reef Park, which I’ve always considered one of the best kept secrets in Miami (my family has begun Thanksgiving Day at that Park for 25 years – and we live in South Miami!).  Whichever lucky Buyers choose this home have found a winner!

It wasn’t easy walking away from ‘the sanctuary’ on closing day, but we passed the gavel to a family that loved and appreciated the very special neighborhood, the old Florida-style house, and the amazing 90 acre park that lays behind it (Matheson Hammock West).  The natural beauty on this Coral Gables acre property was so inspiring – many a weekend I went plant and orchid shopping to duplicate something I found growing or hanging from a tree. Right now I am in the drawing and permitting stage of a similarly designed gazebo too (like the one in the picture above)! You know what they say – imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!  Congratulations to the Buyers, Sellers, and two great realtors – it was a pleasure working with all.

It is so hard to find a completely updated home in Pinecrest under $1.5 million, but we found it and just listed it for sale.  For the ‘turn key’ buyer who doesn’t have the time or energy to take on a renovation project this could be the perfect home! It’s a modern surprise that will appeal to every sense and need. A beautiful brand new kitchen for the gourmet with a tremendous cooking island to gather around and entertain, all new and very stylish bathrooms, new porcelain floors, all new doors and windows with impact glass, and a very large and completely re-finished swimming pool. It’s like new, and ready for you:)

Just Listed by Valaree Byrne & Vanessa Kayes 1600 South Bayshore Lane, Unit 7A, Bayfront Coconut Grove

1600 South Bayshore Lane is one of those ‘under the radar’ communities on the Coconut Grove waterfront that you would only happenstance upon if you lived there or took a wrong turn.  This boutique building is the best kept secret in north Coconut Grove, and from this 7th floor residence one has the most spectacular panorama of Biscayne Bay and all the city lights on the horizon.  You can see interior photos by clicking on any photo or the website below, but what you don’t see is are some hard to find features in the Grove like a very spacious and air conditioned first-level storage space,  a “paddle board” bunker the residents share (where I noticed a few bikes too), and boat docks. This is a place you will love to come home to!

There are some really beautiful homes on the market right now, but I am putting this Island Contemporary home in Pinecrest into the ‘WOW’ category.  To get to my WOW column a house needs to be uber spectacular inside and out, and it can’t be anywhere in the spectrum of cookie cutter.

This gated estate nestled on a picturesque street in the heart of Pinecrest has everything one could desire: a magnificent and tropical acre with South Pacific style pool, rock waterfall,  and wading pond, regulation size basketball half court, al fresco dining pavilion, 2,300 bottle wine cellar, two indoor wet bars, billiards room, fitness room, and the most amazing collaboration of surfaces, textures, and interior appointments you could imagine (i.e. backlit onyx counters).

I have always touted ‘my neighborhood’ and my neighbors as the best in the land.  We have such a magical place back there behind Dante Fascell Park that nobody wants to leave!  I get phone calls every week from people asking me if I know about any houses coming on the market near Dante Fascell Park or Epiphany School and St. Thomas.  It must have been serendipity AND perfect timing that on Halloween night one of the couple hundred people trick or treating on our street (that is no exaggeration) asked me to keep them in mind if a property came on the market.  The very next day a Buyer withdrew from  Contract on this canal front home, and the rest is history as they say.  Congratulations to everyone!

Recently Listed by Vanessa Kayes and Val Byrne 3670 Palmetto Avenue in Coconut Grove

Just like Coconut Grove, this home is eclectic, exotic, and so cool! Tropical in style with a hint of Polynesia, the ‘glass house’ with an open floor plan and sun-filled rooms will delight all who enter (you know a house is ‘cool’ when you enter through a circular shaped door and pass a tranquility pond). 360 degrees of glorious garden and pool panoramas can be seen from nearly every room, and this 14,000 square foot property has plenty of room to enjoy and play. Just a little footnote for the curious developer: the property is sub-dividable.

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables 5709 Riviera Drive

5709 Riviera Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33146

List Price: $896,000

I drive up and down the southern end of Riviera Drive at least twice a day on my way to the office and home, and know that some of the most beautiful and elegant homes in Coral Gables are found on this winding, picture-perfect street; I have memorized most every one of them (and sold a handful of them on the Coral Gables Waterway side of the street). What most seasoned realtors also take notice of are the ‘diamonds in the rough’ that lay in waiting.  When I was alerted that 5709 Riviera Drive was on the market and read the description which mentioned a ‘sweet home that had been occupied by the current owner for 66 years,’ I knew exactly which house it was.   Within hours we had the Buyer in the house, and shortly after we submitted our offer (several other offers were submitted which was very stressful).  Thankfully our offer was selected, and a very smooth transaction evolved from there.  Thank you and congratulations to the Buyers, Sellers, and Mauricio Barba & company, who were a pleasure to work with!
