List Price: $2,339,000

Vanessa and I hope all of our transactions in 2019 are as smooth and enjoyable as this one!  This stunning home in Coral Gables’ ‘Golden Triangle’ sold so quickly because it was just as we described it – Hollywood glamorous, Palm Beach sophisticated, and south Florida warm and inviting.  The best part of selling this magazine perfect residence though, were the great people involved!  The Sellers were so authentic, kind, and cooperative,  and I can’t say enough about the Buyers.  Really genuine, nice folks just arriving in Miami, and knew exactly what they wanted as soon as they saw it (their realtor, Bill Meyersohn, was the guiding light of course!).  Congratulations to everyone, and thank you for setting the tone in 2019!

Recently Sold by Vanessa Kayes in Costa Del Sol 3540 Estepona Avenue, Doral, Florida

3540 Estepona Avenue, Doral, FL 33178

List Price: $324,900

Tenacity and patience win again!  Vanessa and her wonderfully kind and patient clients looked and looked for the ideal condo in Doral.  Once they decided to focus on Costa Del Sol they embarked on a mission to scour every possibility, and that they did!  There were many highs and lows exhausted during that search and offer time, and after many weeks they disappointingly decided to put the ‘project’ on the back burner for a bit.  Just then, when it was least expected, WHAM!  The most perfect and completely updated home can on the market, and within a couple of days they were under contract, and on the road to a successful closing. Congratulations and good luck to all!  Thank you for hanging in there, and our best wishes for many wonderful years ahead!

6430 Chapman Field Drive, Pinecrest, FL

List Price: $949,000

 

The possibilities are endless at this botanical paradise in the heart of Pinecrest.  Nearly an acre nestled in what was once part of the famed Mitchell Groves, this beautiful property is home to an esteemed collection of bromeliad and mango specimens, as well as other lush exotics.  The existing 5 bedroom home, which was built and occupied by only one owner, is a classic example of ‘good bones’ with large bedrooms including a huge master suite, generous social spaces, nice wide hallways, a ginormous family room with a fireplace, and a swimming pool ‘like they used to make them!’  Whether the lucky Buyer polishes this classic 1964 gem or designs a new residence on picturesque Chapman Field Drive, the potential is infinite.

7201 SW 129th Street, Pinecrest, FL 33156

List Price: $850,000

When it’s hot it’There was no time to think or ‘mull’ over thoughts of buying this stunning home in Pinecrest.  From the moment it went on the market the prospects were swarming like bees, and eight offerers were vying for the title of home owner.  It was completely and beautifully renovated, in one of the best neighborhoods in Pinecrest, and under a million dollars – near impossible to find (and we looked over 6 months).  The Buyers and I put our heads together (as well as our competitive souls), and put forth the best offer possible.  They were ecstatic and so grateful to have been at that closing table, and I was over the moon happy for them. Congratulations to everyone!

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

www.VillaFloraPinecrest.com

‘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!
