Recently Listed by Val Byrne at Jade Residences 1331 Brickell Bay Drive, No. 2911

I had deja vu when I listed this beautiful condominium on the 29th floor in Jade Residences at Brickell Bay. Only a few months ago I  had Continuum at South Pointe unit #3801 for sale, and they were nearly mirror images of each other! Both with spectacular water views as far as the eye can see – Jade facing east while Continuum faces west, each with glorious vistas of Fisher Island and Key Biscayne.  I call this beautiful home in the sky “therapy” and when I leave for an appointment to show the property I say, “I’m leaving for the therapist.” From that big, wide balcony I can see perspective and clarity – it’s the most calming point in my day!

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 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!

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!!!!

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 Listed by Valaree Byrne on Coral Lake 4650 SW 62nd Avenue

I listed this property just a couple of weeks ago on Coral Lake and have had such an onslaught of activity!  I wasn’t expecting so much interest this quickly but in hindsight I should have known! There are very few places in Miami where one can launch canoes and paddleboards from their backyard, so this stand-out residence is attracting a lot of attention! I sat outside a few days ago to snap a few pictures, and the sunsets are beautiful on the horizon of this truly special and hidden lake.  It’s hard to believe this rural vibe is on edge of South Miami, and on nearly an acre none-the-less.

This week, Ocean Drive Magazine featured the spectacular infinity edge pool & outdoor living spaces at 181 Leucadendra Drive in Gables Estates.  To quote them in this feature story titled, “Miami Homes with Jaw-Dropping Pools to Stay Cool This Season ,”  “The open-air spaces at this Mediterranean estate rival the indoors” and anyone who has visited this exquisite property will agree!  181 Leucadendra Drive was the masterpiece creation of architect Cesar Molina, and we know Cesar Molina is the master creator of opulent, over-the-top outdoor living.  

Boasting 270′ of waterfront on Gables Estates widest lagoon adjacent to Biscayne Bay, anyone can see why this glorious setting was magazine worthy!  See for yourself in the pictures below and if you would like a private showing please call me!

EWM Realty International Sponsoring Showhouse at The Kampong

12973456_10153778625867599_8443229337223096_o

One of my favorite venues in Miami is The Kampong, the glorious 9-acre botanical garden that was home to famed horticulturist David Fairchild and his wife Marian, and later Marian’s sister and brother in-law, Elsie and Gilbert Grosvenor,  moved to the compound (Kampong is a Malay word for village or a cluster of dwellings).

Sweeney House By Cirrus11 (Own work) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Some of the rooms at the Fairchild-Sweeney House (after the death of the Fairchilds the compound was purchased by the Sweeneys), Barbour Cottage, and the Sausage Tree Cottage have been transformed by 20 local and talented designers as part of the Junior League of Miami’s 2016 Showhouse, and will be showcased from April 7th through the 24th.

Anyone who is inspired by The Kampong will love visiting the home I have for sale at 8598 SW 63rd Avenue in South Miami.  It is nearly an acre forest of spectacular native flowering trees, palms, and fruits encircling an exquisitely restored mid-century home, guest house, and carriage house.  One visitor referred to it as the Time Travel house and I thought the name perfectly described it!

There are only 17 homes in the City of South Miami that are on the beautiful Snapper Creek Canal, and of those only one block has parcels of land near or more than 30,000 square feet.  It was no surprise to me that this lovely home on a gloriously deep oasis of green grass and trees would sell quickly (and my phone is still ringing with takers!).
