Recently Listed by Val Byrne in Coral Gables… 630 University Drive

630 University Drive, Coral Gables, FL

List Price: $2,339,000

There aren’t enough adjectives to describe this amazing house.  It’s Hollywood glamorous, Palm Beach sophisticated, and totally relaxed and inviting like South Florida is!  This beauty on historical University Drive in Coral Gables was completely re-designed and renovated in 2014 by famed NY designers, and has only periodically been used as a second home since then. It’s magazine perfect inside and out – take a look at the pictures and see for yourself!

Recently Sold By Valaree Byrne in Coral Gables Beatrice Row, No. 6

2521 Anderson Road, Coral Gables, FL 33134

List Price: $2,400,000

It was love at first sight for me when I visited Beatrice Row.  I’ve long thought there is a missing link in Coral Gables with respect to residential living style.   Coral Gables is dominated by single family homes, and there are ample condo communities, but when a Buyer is looking for a Villa or Townhome there are slim pickings.  MG Developers filled that void with Beatrice Row, and will do the same in the future with nearby Althea Row and Biltmore Row.

Beatrice Row was the perfect solution  for these ’empty nest’ Buyers who hesitated with the concept of condo living which restricted their size and privacy, and had tired of the daily maintenance machine of home ownership.  Honestly, there were three ‘must haves’ when they left Pinecrest for a newer frontier: she wanted space and enough bedrooms for adult children to return, he needed a killer kitchen and the ability to grill outside, and they both needed a shorter commute to work.  

It was a match made in heaven.  These nine Georgian-style Villas are not only beautiful but so very spacious (4 bedrooms/4.5 baths) and although 3-floors they are equipped with an elevator. The kitchen, butlers pantry, and built-in summer kitchen are to die for (and so is the outside covered terrace), and the location speaks for itself.  Quietly staged on Anderson Road & Valencia Avenue, one can stroll the tree-lined streets of beautiful homes or enjoy the more urban area just steps away. 

Congrats to the greatest buyers and longtime friends, the wonderful MG Developers, and Fortune Realty – who worked so hard to make it happen.

Just Sold By Valaree Byrne and Vanessa Kayes The Towers of Key Biscayne, No. B301

1111 Crandon Boulevard No. B301, Key Biscayne, FL

List Price: $1,149,000

I’ve lived in Miami all of my life and every time I am on “The Key” (local slang for Key Biscayne), I am overwhelmed with the natural beauty we Miamians are blessed with.  Vanessa and I listed this beachfront condominium a few months ago and every showing we had was nothing short of inspirational and energizing for us. With wrap around views of Key Biscayne’s beautiful beach, the Atlantic Ocean AND Biscayne Bay, and magnificent Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, I think this “Estoril” model at Towers of Key Biscayne was bar none the ‘pick of the litter’  in this wonderful village-like resort community.  Congratulations to the Sellers, the Buyers, and two fantastic realtors!

Just Listed by Valaree Byrne in North Pinecrest ‘Villa Flora’ at 5762 SW 100 Street

5762 SW 100th Street, Pinecrest, FL

List Price: $2,149,000

‘Villa Flora’ truly lives up to it’s name!  The landscape at that property is so SPECTACULAR!  I’m plant and tree crazy, so meandering around the grounds is heavenly because the Oaks are magnificent, the Palms majestic, and orchids are blooming everywhere. As one would imagine the home is as remarkable inside as it is outside, with a hint of Tuscany blended in a casual South Florida way.  Anyone who likes to entertain will flip for this updated residence because there  are so many fantastic spaces to host, and they all open onto splendid courtyards and terraces.  The icing on this cake is the little community it lies in, Palms Estates, a little gated enclave of only 6 homes just a few steps away from my favorite Pinecrest hotspots, Pinecrest Wayside Market (home to the greatest smoothies), and Hirni’s Wayside Garden.  You can’t see this home from the gate – you’ll just have to come see it for yourself!

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!

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.

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.

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.
