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.

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.

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.

Just Listed by Val Byrne in Lychee Grove Estates 15225 SW 80th Avenue, Palmetto Bay

 

Need a great location, lots of space, and a style that has some pizazz?  That’s what these Seller were looking for when they purchased this fantastic ‘Hollub home’ a couple of years ago, but now they’re relocating! There are so many remarkable features at this gated residence – huge social spaces, glorious kitchen, divine master suite, vaulted ceilings, glorious pool & patio, and a full-house generator, just to name a few.

It gets even better! Just outside the private gated entry, only a few steps away, is the crown jewel of Palmetto Bay – Coral Reef Park, which I’ve always considered one of the best kept secrets in Miami (my family has begun Thanksgiving Day at that Park for 25 years – and we live in South Miami!).  Whichever lucky Buyers choose this home have found a winner!

There are some really beautiful homes on the market right now, but I am putting this Island Contemporary home in Pinecrest into the ‘WOW’ category.  To get to my WOW column a house needs to be uber spectacular inside and out, and it can’t be anywhere in the spectrum of cookie cutter.

This gated estate nestled on a picturesque street in the heart of Pinecrest has everything one could desire: a magnificent and tropical acre with South Pacific style pool, rock waterfall,  and wading pond, regulation size basketball half court, al fresco dining pavilion, 2,300 bottle wine cellar, two indoor wet bars, billiards room, fitness room, and the most amazing collaboration of surfaces, textures, and interior appointments you could imagine (i.e. backlit onyx counters).

You’ll fall in love just looking at the pictures!

Some “Ground Breaking News” on Biscayne Bay The Fairchild Coconut Grove a Reality

Coconut Grove’s long anticipated luxury Bayfront community, The Fairchild Coconut Grove, is breaking ground next  month. With a low key address like 3581 East Glencoe Street one would expect the quiet anonymity of the north Grove, but residents of The Fairchild are going to experience the intoxicating immersion of renowned Architect Max Strang, with his site-specific and climate driven designs, and famed interior designer Rafael de Cardenas in an extraordinary vision of “environmental modernism.”

Twenty-six exceptional waterfront residences share a roof top deck with swimming pool, cabanas, cinema, and landscaped zen gardens, as well as glorious Biscayne Bay views. Amenities include 24- hour security, concierge, valet, a wellness spa & gym, private boat slips, and even a dog park. This is the most exciting waterfront community created in Coconut Grove since the Residences of Vizcaya which were built in 2011.  Prices range from $1.6 million to over $6 million, with delivery expected first quarter, 2019.  

For more information contact Val Byrne (305) 323-6231 or Vanessa Kayes (305) 301-9297.

EWM Realty International Ranks Number 1 in Coral Gables’ Sales

 

 July was an award-winning month at EWM! Not only was our company ranked #1 in 2017 sales in Coral Gables but the annual Miami Herald Real Estate Survey voted us Best Brokerage (for the third year in a row), and bestowed our beloved President Ron Shuffield the Best Broker award (every EWM realtor will attest to that and raise it some)! 

 

Nelson Gonzalez & Ron Shuffield

We swept the Oscars with ‘Best Realtor’ award too, and I use the term “we” loosely because that accolade goes to our famed Miami Beach realtor, Nelson Gonzalez.   My husband and I have known Nelson 40 years  – he has aged wisely and gracefully, and the award couldn’t have gone to a better guy!!!!

Coral Gables is near and dear to me – I was born in one of the original Coral Gables homes on Milan Avenue, attended Church of the Little Flower and St. Theresa School (I can still close my eyes and see the STS logo on my pocket), and have worked in the ‘City Beautiful’ for many years.  I am proud to have contributed nearly $25,000,000 of EWM’s $181,451,000 in sales this year.

Just Sold by Valaree Byrne in Longview Villas 2475 S. Bayshore Drive #3, Coconut Grove

2475 S. Bayshore Drive #3, Coconut Grove, FL 33133

List Price: $1,239,000

We sold this gem in one of my favorite communities in Coconut Grove – historic Longview Villas. I’ve always told my husband if we were to return to  Coconut Grove (where “we” began in 1988), I would probably want to go to Longview.  The Villas have great space, the residents of the community are phenomenal, they have a beautiful pool and tennis court under a glorious canopy of trees, it’s gated, and the community is across the street from my most beloved Kennedy Park and A.C.’s Icees (the greatest lemonade icees IN THE WORLD).

As my marketing description read, “there’s a fabulous opportunity for a Byer who embraces some restoration, appreciates value, and totally get’s location, location, location.”  When this Villa is restored the lucky Buyer will live in Camelot, and the Longview community is thrilled to have him.  Congratulations to everyone!

Just Sold by Val Byrne in Snapper Creek Lakes 10900 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables

10900 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, FL 33156

List Price: $2,750,000

I was so excited to sell this very cool Mid-Century home in Snapper Creek Lakes (one of Coral Gables’ premiere communities).  Lester Pancoast, who was married to David Fairchild’s grand daughter, Helene, designed it in 1959 and 58 years later it is a timeless display of  modern architecture.  An interesting note is that the roof above the pool was not an original design feature, but was in fact a sun-blocking addition made by the prior owner, who was a dermatologist! It’s so perfectly suited for Mid-Century Modern!  The sale of this home and a  wonderful cascade of photographs were immediately picked up by Curbed Miami.

It took very special Buyers to look at this property which had declined over the years, see the beauty, appreciate the architecture (and architect), and embrace the restoration. They have their work cut out for them, but when finished I’m sure it will be nothing less than glorious.  Congratulations to the Buyers and the Seller!
