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!

Recently Listed by Val Byrne in Coral Gables 1110 S. Alhambra Circle

This is classic Americana – right down to the “red” front door.  Colonial meets sophistication here at the corner of S. Alhambra Circle and Pallazzo Street in the coveted South Gables. FYI, we had this residence on the market in 2014, both for rent and for sale.  Within 24 hours we had nearly full price offers for both scenarios, and the Seller chose to rent.  Fast forward to 2017 I’m anxious to see how long it takes to sell! I doubt very long; it’s a very special home with a lot of wonderful features like tall ceilings (I have a ceiling height fetish), hardwood floors, an eat-in kitchen, and ginormous master suite.  There’s impact-resistant glass on all the doors and windows, a wonderfully shaped swimming pool, a two-car garage, and huge outdoor spaces (it’s nearly a 15,000sf lot).  Could you ask for more?  No, but one more thing to rave about – you can walk to Sunset Elementary School.

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!

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 Listed by Val Byrne and Vanessa Kayes 1910 S. Bayshore Lane in Coconut Grove

Vanessa and I recently listed what we think is the most spectacular waterfront property on the market!   Besides endless views of Biscayne Bay which are nothing short of breathtaking, there are magnificent interior and exterior spaces, exceptional details, and a north Grove location that’s the envy of all.  This Modern Palladian masterwork designed by famed architect Ramon Pacheco in 2002 is all about pure enjoyment. My favorite rooms are the eight seat theater and 19′ x 35′ bayside gym and steam room (the gym can be converted to additional bedrooms too); I would use them both endlessly!

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 Listed by Val Byrne in Coral Gables 5671 Banyan Trail

Could you ask for more than a home with a Coral Gables address, Pinecrest Schools, and a Coconut Grove vibe?  Probably not, and this enchanting residence exceeds all expectations!  First, there’s the superb location on a quiet, no thru street in the Hammock Lakes neighborhood (a neighborhood destined to be guard-gated),  adjacent to vast unspoiled acreage donated by the Matheson family.  Then, there’s the enchanting acre of exotic flora, blooming orchids, nature trails, and  beautiful Florida keystone that is simply awe-inspiring, and finally this one-of-a-kind interior decorator’s home is the most refreshing blend of boheme and South Florida vernacular I have ever seen!  Come see it and you will agree:)
