Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coconut Grove 3127 Matilda Street

3127 Matilda Street, Coconut Grove, FL

List Price: $795,900

There are so many new and wonderful townhomes  in Coconut Grove, and we saw every single one of them when we began our search! Nearly a dozen townhomes were on the market in this Buyer’s price range, with most of them having been built between 2005 and now. This very cool townhouse at 3127 Matilda really jumped out for us, and it wasn’t only about the home (which is beautiful); the neighborhood is fantastic, the park is a minute away, and the heart of the Grove is just beyond that.  Jumanoh Developers and realtor Nohra Pelaez were a pleasure to work with, and that is so important when stepping into the waters of new construction. Congratulations to a wonderful Buyer and the entire family!

If I had a nickel for every call I had about this wonderful tri-level Villa at gated Atrium in the Grove, I would be able to buy the biggest White Chocolate Mocha Frappuccino at Starbucks (but since the property is located in Coconut Grove maybe I would go to Panther’s Coffee).

This home had it all – new beautiful kitchen, splendid porcelain and wood floors, ginormous master suite, an abundance of glass and sunshine, a wonderful outdoor deck, and the elusive full size two-car garage which isn’t easy to find in the Grove.   Needless to say this property sold very quickly – congratulations to the Buyers and to the Seller!

Tucked away on a quiet street in the Center Grove that many didn’t know existed, this tri-level Villa has turned a lot of heads!  Natural light, soaring ceilings, and hardwood floors are the cornerstone to a refreshing design that is further highlighted by a brand new kitchen, phenomenally large master suite, and wonderful courtyard with built in bench seating and the most magnificent oak tree at center stage. One of only six residences in this quiet, gated community – this is quintessential Coconut Grove living.

Just Sold at Grovenor House in Coconut Grove 2627 S. Bayshore Drive, No. 1105

Grovenor House #1105, Coconut Grove, FL

List Price: $1,660,000

There are so many beautiful places to live in Coconut Grove with magnificent panoramas of Sailboat Bay, but to date my favorite would have to be Grovenor House (yes, I shutter to say publicly that Grovenor House wins my vote over the Grove at Grand Bay towers – shhhhh).    Ugo Colombo designed this majestic glass-front building with beautiful open spaces, warm and inviting ‘quiet’ areas, a phenomenal pool area, fantastic gym, and magnificent grounds.  There is a unique feeling of ‘home’ that emulates from the design, the residents, and the on-site staff,  and in a time when resort style communities are the buzz, I think Grovenor House has secured it’s niche.  Congratulations to the Buyers – it was not easy getting this property!!

Coconut Grove real estate is on fire, especially so with properties under $1 million! We set out to find a center or west Grove townhome in near ‘turnkey’ condition and they were going under contract left and right.  As soon as the Buyers saw this we knew it was ‘the one’ for them.  Completely and beautifully renovated, plenty of parking, privately gated, and best of all is the dog park practically across the street.  Congratulations to all!

Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coconut Grove 4324 Lennox Drive

4324 Lennox Drive, Coconut Grove, FL

List Price: $1,295,000

I finally got to sell a home on my favorite street in Coconut Grove! For as long as I can remember I have coveted beautiful, winding Lennox Drive and the canopy of trees towering over it. This sweet home with an Old English flare and nautical influences was a shipbuilder’s cottage, built in 1936, and in my eyes is quintessential Grove.  I enjoyed working with the Buyers so much, and was over the moon to have found this jewel.  Congratulations to all!

Sadly, with the recent passing of Doug Burris, Coconut Grove’s infamous musician, party host, and the iconic leader of Miami Beach High School’s Rock Ensemble for over 40 years, came the inevitable sale of his house.   ‘La Ponderosa’ as it was affectionately called by many was not only home to Doug but home to generations of students, friends, and family who ADORED him (read the Miami Herald’s story about Carter Douglas Burris!).

51fRpx13B-L__SX346_BO1,204,203,200_It was one of my greatest privileges to know this phenomenal human being, who had a million dollar smile.  Shortly before Doug’s death from complications of a life with Multiple Sclerosis he published his autobiography, “Walk & Roll,” which I recommend everyone read! His story is nothing short of inspirational.

When I first visited this sweet home in the North Grove it reminded me of a watercolor painting of “Old Coconut Grove’ I’d seen at one of the art festivals.  It was love at first sight, and not only for me – I had more callers on this home than any other I have sold in the Grove! Built only a year after the 1925 incorporation of Coconut Grove (which was soon incorporated into the City of Miami), this house is the remarkable marriage of old world charm and bohemian elegance.  It was no surprise that we had multi-offers on the table the first week, and once again we could all say perseverance pays off.  Congratulations to the Seller and to the lucky Buyers!

EWM Realty International Sponsoring Showhouse at The Kampong

One of my favorite venues in Miami is The Kampong, the glorious 9-acre botanical garden that was home to famed horticulturist David Fairchild and his wife Marian, and later Marian’s sister and brother in-law, Elsie and Gilbert Grosvenor,  moved to the compound (Kampong is a Malay word for village or a cluster of dwellings).

Some of the rooms at the Fairchild-Sweeney House (after the death of the Fairchilds the compound was purchased by the Sweeneys), Barbour Cottage, and the Sausage Tree Cottage have been transformed by 20 local and talented designers as part of the Junior League of Miami’s 2016 Showhouse, and will be showcased from April 7th through the 24th.

Anyone who is inspired by The Kampong will love visiting the home I have for sale at 8598 SW 63rd Avenue in South Miami.  It is nearly an acre forest of spectacular native flowering trees, palms, and fruits encircling an exquisitely restored mid-century home, guest house, and carriage house.  One visitor referred to it as the Time Travel house and I thought the name perfectly described it!
