Miami real estate news and information

Miami Lures You. Coral Gables Grabs You, and Holds You.

You came here by chance. The allure of the palm trees, ocean and tropical paradise that Miami is known for.  A gentle way of life.  Miami, southern gateway to America, beckons…. and Coral Gables definitely, unequivocally invites you to stay.  If historic Coral Gables whispers, there’s a rooftop terrace, and outdoor summer kitchen … and rooftop jacuzzi…. and an entire private villa beneath it waiting to have your name attached to it. For now, your villa holds the name of a fine wine or special story… just waiting to be told.
Step through the wrought iron gates.  Slip the key in and

open the door.  Step inside.  A feeling of grandeur.  And so many subtleties.  

High ceilings, and a private four-story villa in the heart of residential Coral Gables.  Individual access through a single private elevator…  Yours.  ( There’s home…  There’s work…. And there’s more. There’s Miami, and there’s The Venetian Coral Gables) 

Indulge your senses:  The loggia, tree canopy and views of the Biltmore Hotel, are yours, everyday. … rain or shine.  Private terraces and a covered outdoor-summer-kitchen promise to invite memories, and not a single one of them spoiled by weather.  Eight-foot French doors connect terraces, entertainment, and game rooms. Whether a dinner party for thirty…. or an intimate interlude… weather won’t dampen it.  The Miami lifestyle…. with open air and breezes….flows… and is one of the many reasons you opt to be here. 

On occasion, perhaps you’ll see a barn owl … more frequently though, it will be the parrots, as they fly by at dusk.  Your time, the evening… relaxing outdoors… a dusty bottle from the wine cellar  …the wood-burning fireplace…. a dinner party for thirty, or a vintage port for a select few. 

Step into the courtyard, and into your private elevator…   Your spacious media/ game/ entertainment areas lie above the tree canopy on the fourth floor…  prewired for sound, fiber optics  and electronic control (and with sound attenuated walls!)  French doors take you onto the terrace and loggia… lusciously landscaped… and maintained through irrigation systems.  Voila’ …the cherished and trendsetting covered summer-kitchen. 

One floor below, are three beautiful bedrooms. Terraces, private baths. Balconies, a fireplace… in your maser suite.  A two person shower.  Double walk-in closets.

Another floor down, by elevator or open stairwell, you’ll find the main living quarters. Open… spacious…. and gracious.  Light streaming in.  Views and outdoor space everywhere you turn. A stunningly appointed Italian kitchen by Scavolini (Sub Zero Wine Storage, Wolf and Miele appliances) opens onto the family room. The Living and Dining areas are designed to be comfortable and livable, with sophiticated touches, fine detail and elegance . Natural stone countertops and flooring. Ten foot ceilings. Wine cellar. Wet bar.

Semi sub-terranean you’ll find a double, or triple, garage…. and a special place, waiting to be designed around your wants and needs.  It’s purpose will be as imaginative as you might dream:  Your private office or hide-away, fitness center, music room, storage, meditation, guest or staff quarters… or additional wine cellar/ tasting room.  From $1,675,000 to $1,975,000  it’s a lifestyle to reserve now.  Ready in 2011, these aren’t for everyone.  It’s a calculated investment for those wanting to move, but prefering to wait until the market strengthens before selling their current residence.
