Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in South Miami 6160 SW 85 Street

6160 SW 85th Street, South Miami, FL 33143

List Price: $1,049,000

This is what I call a Lose-Win sale. I lost the most wonderful neighbors, but the neighborhood gained a great family!  We were under contract in about 5 days, and had a lot of folks pretty upset they hadn’t responded faster.  In my 25 years of living in this AMAZING South Miami neighborhood behind Dante Fascell Park I have only run across two or three homes built in the 50’s – 60’s that have five bedrooms – and they all sold in about the same flash of time.  Five bedrooms was a key feature with this property, although the impeccable condition, beautiful kitchen and baths, poolside family room, sparkling pool, and brick paved patio and driveway were tremendous assets!  Congratulations to the Buyers, and my very best wishes to the Sellers in their new home – the neighbors will miss you!

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!

List Price: $940,000

When a great home comes on the market in Coral Gables, there is no time to delay. In the case of this beautiful home near the University of Miami there wasn’t even time to wait for the Buyer to return from vacation!  I was so confident this was ‘it’ I convinced the Buyer to sign a Contract sight unseen (the pictures were beautiful).  It was a happy ending for all – congratulations to the Buyers, Sellers, and that really lucky dog:)

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Miami Beach Continuum South Tower, 100 S. Pointe Drive #3801

100 S. Pointe Drive #3801, Miami Beach, FL 33139

List Price: $3,750,000

I am going to miss visits to the Continuum on South Beach terribly. Not only was it immensely accommodating to have mostly late afternoon and weekend viewing appointments, but inspirational as well!  I always made it a point to arrive a half early just to enjoy those glorious sunsets over our City, and twice I dragged my husband along on Saturday showings and actually went to the Beach (chairs, towels, and all)!   The South of Fifth lifestyle is infinitely wonderful and soooo contagious!  Congratulations to the Buyer and to the Seller!!!!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Pinecrest 11101 SW 64th Avenue

11101 SW 64th Avenue, Pinecrest, FL 33156

List Price: $1,399,000

If one were to look up a picture definition of Mid-Century Modern this home would be first and foremost on the page!  All of the classic features of MCM like clerestory windows, huge social spaces, enormous walls for art, and polished terrazzo floors were front and center stage, and we were so happy to have a Buyer who follows and appreciates this profound architectural style.  Congratulations to the Buyers, and to the Sellers (who no doubt bought another classic Mid-Century Modern home)!

3575 Stewart Avenue, Coconut Grove, FL

List Price: $12,995,000

Thanks to my wonderful associate Vanessa Kayes, we just sold one of the most spectacular properties on Biscayne Bay (and the second highest $ sale in Coconut Grove). Sprawling nearly an acre with protected canal dockage AND 220’on the Bay, this magnificent home not only enjoys endless water views and a sunrise like you’ve never seen before, but a captivating vista of the Miami skyline.  Whether one is in the six bedroom main house, the two bedroom guest house, the poolside gazebo, or just sitting on the dock, the panorama is nothing short of inspirational.  Congratulations to the Buyers, the Seller, Chad Carroll, and to Vanessa!

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!

Going, going, gone!  We put three condos at The Strand on the market in December and in what seemed like a nano-second two of them were sold.  Investors were really excited about these fully furnished studios on Ocean Drive in Miami Beach, and who wouldn’t be? Sand as ocean as far as the eye can see,  the Clevelander and Congress Hotels on either side, and for investors the most important feature: rentals without restrictions!!!

Shhhh, we have one left:)

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in South Miami 6435 Snapper Creek Drive

6435 SW 85th Street, Miami, FL 33143

List Price: $1,150,000

I live in South Miami and have walked by this home nearly everyday for the last 26 years – I always pine for it (I also sold it to the Sellers nearly 24 years ago).  It’s definitely ‘Old Florida’ with it’s wide front porch, canopy of amazing trees, and restored hardwood floors, but beyond that there is something so calming and soothing about this property.  Everyone who walked through it had the same feeling of ‘coming home’ not only to the residence, but to the wonderful neighborhood it lays in (and wonderful neighbors too).  The very last thing the Seller mentioned to the Buyer before leaving was not to forget to put clean shavings in the ‘owl box’  so they would be ready for owl nesting seson.  I forgot I was in Miami!  Congratulations to the Buyers and Sellers – a perfect match.
