630 University Drive, Coral Gables, 33134

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!

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.

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)!

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!

Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables Gables Laroc at 441 Valencia Avenue, No. 503

441 Valencia Avenue #503, Coral Gables, FL 33134

List Price: $525,000

In my opinion Gables Laroc  is one of the best kept secrets in Coral Gables.  Small enough to be what I consider a ’boutique’ building, yet majestic and quite impressive at the corridor of downtown Coral Gables.  What everyone who visited this lovely condominium community was drawn to was the proximity to Coral Gables’ urban hub, and the east of LeJeune Road location only a few steps from the quiet tree-lined streets that lead to Venetian Pool, Salvadore Park, and the historic homes Coral Gables is renowned for.  In a time when condominium living is so prevalent and the choices so ample, it’s not easy to find the right fit but I think the wonderful couple who bought No. 503 and will call Gables Laroc home is going to love it. Congratulations to all!

List Price: $3,595,000

Another classic example of persistence and tenacity prevailing!  We started looking for a home with these Buyers in the Spring of 2017, and over one year and SO many houses later, we circled back to this beauty in the Ponce Davis area which the Buyers were always drawn to.  The magical setting, magnificent oak trees, and idyllic neighborhood were impossible to duplicate, and the house was so special – majestic with an authentic southern charm and warmth.  It was a pleasure selling a home full of love and happiness to Buyers that would carry the torch and love it so much.  Congratulations and our best wishes to wonderful Buyers and some very special Sellers.

List Price: $959,000

It didn’t take long to sell this fantastic home near the University of Miami (and it was more than a coincidence that it sold to a UM faculty member!).  The activity and number of Buyer’s looking at this home was crazy – a true reflection of the market in Coral Gables for properties under $1,000,000.   Finding a home that is attractive, updated, on a large lot, and having a beautiful swimming pool is not easy to find in Coral Gables, and compounded with a premier location near the University of Miami and steps from the new Alhambra Park, it was no wonder we were under contract in less than a month.

Congratulations to the Buyer and Seller!

Waterfront Properties in All Shapes & Sizes!

1910 S. Bayshore Lane, Coconut Grove, FL

There’s nothing like South Florida waterfront living, no matter what size property you are enjoying the horizon on!  Miami offers so much variety in waterfront living, and although some  Buyers are conditioned to believe coastal living is unaffordable, there is a diverse selection to consider and price points from ‘A to Z.’   Palmetto Bay’s Paradise Point community where tri-level villas and single family homes share the quiet ‘club’ ambiance in a guarded community are a favorite of mine; they even have a private beach for residents.  Coral Gables is home to some of the most spectacular waterfront residences spanning from Deering Bay at the southern end of the City Beautiful to the Sunrise Harbour neighborhoods bordering Coconut Grove.  

Sure there are breathtaking views from the uber pricey homes of Gables Estates, Old Cutler Bay, and Gables Club, but the views from Gables Waterway Towers can be equal in beauty and more palatable on the pocket for those yearning for Mother Ocean.  The same goes from Coconut Grove!  Yes, the balconies of soon to open Park Grove, Grove at Grand Bay, and Grovenor House offer the most spectacular views of Biscayne Bay, but the same ‘wow’ panoramas are seen from Yacht Harbour, Grove Towers, and Cloisters on the Bay too! Up and down Bayshore are some of the most significant homes and communities in Miami, but if you look carefully there are some wonderful opportunities out there.  We’ll be closing on unit 7A at 1600 S. Bayshore Lane soon – that boutique building is one of the best kept secrets in the Grove, with sales under $700,000 and million dollar views.

Val Byrne & Associates have fantastic properties for sale overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay in prices ranging from $289,000 on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach to $9,250,000 in north Coconut Grove. From Palmetto Bay to Key  Biscayne to the Miami Beaches there is so much opportunity for waterfront living, and if you haven’t been able to find your dream spot, you can be sure we can.
