Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Key Biscayne The Towers of Key Biscayne, No. C1007

1111 Crandon Boulevard No. C1007, Key Biscayne, FL

List Price: $1,128,000

The Towers of Key Biscayne is the best kept secret on the island (and my Buyers thought the same after an extensive 5 month search). Tucked away at the very end of Crandon Boulevard adjacent to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, it really is nothing short of heavenly.  I would love living there and waking up to the beach everyday, but there’s so much more at The Towers of Key Biscayne! Every lucky resident of The Towers has the luxury of an in-house beauty salon and restaurant (the only community on the island with both!), and the pure enjoyment of top-notch facilities, two wonderful pools, and the most beautiful meandering gardens.  It is a slice of paradise and these lucky buyers will love every minute of every day!  Congratulations to the Buyers, the Seller, and the most wonderful realtor:)

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Palmetto Bay 15225 SW 80th Avenue

15225 SW 80th Avenue, Palmetto Bay, FL 33157

List Price: $999,000

I think Coral Reef Park in the Village of Palmetto Bay is one of the most beautiful parks in all of Miami-Dade County.  If one if lucky enough to live within walking distance to Coral Reef Park (like the Buyers and Sellers of this great residence in Lychee Grove Estates were), then you simply live in paradise!  Because of the excellent schools and highly desirable price point Palmetto Bay is a hot spot, and an updated home near the Park is a very hot commodity. When I first sold this home in April of 2016, it had only been on the market 48 hours before we made our offer.  Fast forward to April 2018, and an unexpected job relocation for the Seller, we were on the market less than three weeks! I was so sad to see the Sellers leave Miami, but delighted to see a wonderful family step in their place.  Congratulations and good luck to all!

Just Sold by Val Byrne & Associates in Pinecrest 6701 SW 128th Street

List Price: $1,349,000

The inner designer in me loved this house!  By the time I was contacted to list this home in central Pinecrest much of the renovation was underway, but I could still see the metamorphosis that had taken place.  I list and sell a lot of mid-century homes in Pinecrest and Palmetto Bay, and this was one of the best transformations I have seen – the integrity of the original design was completely respected while a 21st century face lift was installed. The result was fantastic – a classic ranch style home now shines with a more contemporary persona.  Congratulations to delighful Buyers, their fantastic realtors, and a most wonderful Seller.  It was a pleasure working with all.

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables 1140 Alfonso Avenue

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!

If you ask me what my favorite movie is, it’s usually the last one I saw. Ask me what my favorite book is and it will always be the last one I read.  My favorite house? This one, and this is my favorite picture of my favorite house!  There aren’t enough adjectives to describe how special this Pinecrest house is but I can start with warm, vibrant, tropical, one-of-a-kind, and so very South Florida.  It was a home filled with love, laughter, family, and friends for many years, and like many ’empty nesters’ the time came to simplify and move on (what a match; the Buyers were ready to trade the tidy, simplified life of luxury condo living for sprawling estate living!). The beauty of this sale was passing the gavel from one happy family to another…that’s what makes a house a home.

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Kendall Point 8520 SW 84th Terrace

8520 SW 84th Terrace, Miami, FL 33143

List Price: $675,000

It’s no secret that the market for homes under one million dollars in Miami is shrinking at break neck speed, but beyond that fact finding ‘turn key’ homes and following the mantra of ‘location, location, location’ is nearly impossible! The Buyers were new to Miami (new to me as well) and learned very quickly just how fast one must move in order to buy a house in this town. In just two weeks we covered a lot of ground in Schenley Park, Coral Gables, the UM corridor, and east Kendall. We visited this wonderful home in Kendall Point as soon as it came on the market and made an offer shortly after (and weren’t the only ones either). It was the proverbial match made in heaven; fantastic Seller, ideal Buyers, all rational souls looking for the same end result.  Everyone left with a smile:)  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!

Just Sold by Val Byrne in Ponce-Davis Estates 8150 Erwin Road

8150 Erwin Road, Coral Gables, FL 33143

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.

Recently Sold by Vanessa Kayes and Val Byrne 1600 South Bayshore Lane #7A, Coconut Grove

1600 South Bayshore Lane #7A, Coconut Grove, FL 33133

List Price: $715,000

Waterfront properties under $1,000,000 are difficult to find in Miami, and in Coconut Grove it’s next to impossible!  This gem, tucked away in a quiet little boutique building on Biscayne Bay, had million dollar views and a poolside marina that many a Buyer coveted.  Vanessa and I were so delighted to hand the keys over to a wonderful couple who loved Coconut Grove and the community as much as the Seller did.   Congratulations to everyone!

Recently Sold by Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables 1525 Mendavia Avenue

1525 Mendavia Avenue, Coral Gables, FL 33146

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!
