Just Sold by Valaree M. Byrne in Gables Estates 181 Leucadendra Drive

181 Leucadendra Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33156

List Price: $17,900,000

As we approach mid-year,  the closing of this opulent estate ranks as the second highest sale in Gables Estates (and the home warrants every bit of that recognition). I would have to say this was my favorite photograph of 181 Leucadendra Drive – it captures the essence of grace, natural beauty, and the wonderfully talented Caesar Molina, who designed this spectacular estate in 2004.  It is also illustrates the beauty of Gables Estates: serene, lush, private, and a quiet passageway to Biscayne Bay (many thanks to N25 Drone photography for fabulous photos!).  This Modern Hacienda is as special as the wonderful Sellers are, and I wish a lifetime of wonderful moments to the new owners – congratulations to all!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in South Miami 6477 Sunset Drive, in Orr’s Pond

6647 Sunset Drive, South Miami, FL 33143

List Price: $939,000

Patience Pays!  Those are the most often used words said by me to Buyers (and to my children’s deaf ears).  We waited over a year for a property to  go on the market in Orr’s Pond (they rarely are for sale).  This most wonderfully patient friend asked me to keep my eye out for a home in Orr’s Pond and another gated development in South Miami.  I called friends in both communities and asked them to keep their ears out, and one lucky morning I got “the” call – someone was planning to leave a beautiful home in coveted Orr’s Pond.  Within 5 minutes I located the realtor they had worked with to purchase the residence, and she confirmed her clients would be moving and were listing the house for sale within a few days.  We were in the house within 24 hours and had our offer on the table shortly thereafter.  It was a match made in heaven! Congratulations to the Buyer and Sellers, and a big thank you to the very special lady who gave me the inside track!

Recently Listed by Val Byrne in Coral Gables 5671 Banyan Trail

Could you ask for more than a home with a Coral Gables address, Pinecrest Schools, and a Coconut Grove vibe?  Probably not, and this enchanting residence exceeds all expectations!  First, there’s the superb location on a quiet, no thru street in the Hammock Lakes neighborhood (a neighborhood destined to be guard-gated),  adjacent to vast unspoiled acreage donated by the Matheson family.  Then, there’s the enchanting acre of exotic flora, blooming orchids, nature trails, and  beautiful Florida keystone that is simply awe-inspiring, and finally this one-of-a-kind interior decorator’s home is the most refreshing blend of boheme and South Florida vernacular I have ever seen!  Come see it and you will agree:)

3047 Orange Street #A2, Coconut Grove, FL

List Price: $659,000

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!

3047 Orange Street #A2

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!!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Cutler Oaks 7207 SW 146th Street Circle, Palmetto Bay

7207 SW 146th Street Circle, Palmetto Bay, FL

List Price: $1,150,000

This was another classic example of how patience and perseverance pay off, and when mixed with kindness and a level-head the stars often line up!  I met the Buyers in April, 2014 and we went  on a long, winding journey to find just the right home. Nearly two years later we found that dream home in the beautiful Cutler Oaks community in Palmetto Bay, but we still had to sell the home they lived in which we listed in February, 2016. 

We almost lost the Cutler Oaks home a couple of times to other Buyers, but as fate would have it when the Buyers own home went under Contract in August, that Palmetto Bay dream home was waiting for them.  That’s when the kindness and level-headedness kicked in – it wasn’t the easiest transaction because sales that are contingent on sales can be very stressful.  Congratulations to all three levels of participants – you were so delightful to work with, and realtors Roz Marks and Guillermo de la Paz were simply phenomenal.
