Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coconut Grove 3047 Orange Street #A2

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.

This week, Ocean Drive Magazine featured the spectacular infinity edge pool & outdoor living spaces at 181 Leucadendra Drive in Gables Estates.  To quote them in this feature story titled, “Miami Homes with Jaw-Dropping Pools to Stay Cool This Season ,”  “The open-air spaces at this Mediterranean estate rival the indoors” and anyone who has visited this exquisite property will agree!  181 Leucadendra Drive was the masterpiece creation of architect Cesar Molina, and we know Cesar Molina is the master creator of opulent, over-the-top outdoor living.  

Boasting 270′ of waterfront on Gables Estates widest lagoon adjacent to Biscayne Bay, anyone can see why this glorious setting was magazine worthy!  See for yourself in the pictures below and if you would like a private showing please call me!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Pine Manor 7654 SW 54th Avenue

pine-manor-17654 SW 54th Avenue, Miami, FL

List Price: $899,000

3 Bedrooms | 2.5 Baths

I have always been a huge fan of Pine Manor, a cluster of 42 Villas in the heart of High Pines. High Pines and it’s sister neighborhood, South Miami, are predominantly single family home communities, so when these Villas were built in 2008 within walking distance to the shops and boutiques on Sunset Drive they were a home run! Every now and then one of them is offered for sale, and they are spoken for pretty quickly – we were lucky to get our foot in the door.  I am so happy for the Buyers and Seller alike – congratulations!

 It didn’t take long for these Georgia buyers to decide where they wanted to live! We looked seriously at Coral Gables, Pinecrest, and our last stop was in Coconut Grove, on a beautiful day I should add.  Skies were blue, the Grove’s bohemian camaraderie was as charming as ever, and urban life along Biscayne Bay in this cool village looked fantastic.  Buyers fell in love with Cloisters on the Bay which is a magnificent, gated community nestled between The Barnacle and Peacock Parks, and a stroll away to all Coconut Grove has to offer. Congratulations to both the Buyers and Sellers!

Happy 90th Birthday Coral Gables!

CG 90th

Coral Gables News

That’s the beautiful cover of Coral Gables News’ special edition this month commemorating the 90th birthday of “The City Beautiful”. The famous fountain on Country Club Prado at the north entrance of the Gables has been the spectacular back drop for thousands of wedding pictures and quinceneras in its history. My own wedding pictures were taken there, but more memorable for me were the hundreds of tadpoles my father helped me collect every Sunday if I behaved at church (I still associate Church of the Little Flower with tadpoles).

I love Coral Gables and am proud to have been born, educated, and working in such a vibrant and historical city. If we are a product of our environment then I would say the Coral Gables Youth Center, St. Theresa School, and Matheson Hammock were an enormous part of my upbringing!

I have two really special homes for sale that were featured in the 90th birthday edition: 3016 Alhambra Circle was built in 1926 – the same year Coral Gables was newly incorporated, the Biltmore Hotel had its inaugural ceremony, and the University of Miami enrolled its first class. How is that for history? Like the City it was created in, this regal, Old Spanish-style grand dame has gotten better!

181 Leucadendra Drive in Gables Estates is in a class of its own, and for that reason was selected by EWM Realty International to be the backdrop for its commemorative birthday ad! This magnificent Mediterranean estate, with 270′ of water frontage on Gables Estates premier lagoon, was built in 2004 and fuses old world craftsmanship, European charm, and 21st century panache.  It is a very, very special property as photographer Jonah Gouin has captured.  For more information or an appointment to either of these wonderful homes please contact me!
