E Lake Dock

A lake as your backyard!  Most residents have boats, waverunners, jet skis…. There’s a strong  sense of community, and while “rules” are few and far between on the lake, there’s a refreshing sense of caring and respect shared by those who reside on E-Lake. There is NO Homeowners Association, apart from a voluntary  one, which collects an annual (voluntary) contribution of $150 toward testing and treating the water. What there is on E-Lake,  is a common thread… a lifestyle that revolves around the outdoors…  “good neighbors” ..  “good fun”…. and “quality of life”.

 A little history on E Lake:    In the early 1920’s Henry Flagler  bought the land around E Lake  as a rock quarry… for the coral rock, limestone (also known as oolite)   needed to build his railroad.   The rock was crushed to form  the bed of the tracks, and  used in making the cement for necessary bridges and other structures. Flagler’s railroad was to go from Miami all the way down to Key West.  Because of the aquifer and Miami’s unique water table, the quarry began to fill with water. In spite of concerted efforts, the digging apparatus couldn’t contend with the infiltration of water… eventually causing excavation to cease.  By the 1940’s  a fresh water lake filled in the rock quarry, and  when seen from above, the lake looks like  the letter “E”.  The largest of the fingers is to the north, with the depth ranging  from 35 ft on the east  to  over 60 ft on the west side.   E-Lake Community extends between SW 136th Street  and SW 144th Street (on the north and south), and from SW 92 Avenue over to SW 97 Avenue (on the east and west).

By the way, the (historic) Venetian Pool in Coral Gables, had it’s origins (as did E-Lake)  as a rock quarry that filled with water from Miami’s natural underground spring / aquifer. The Venetian Pool ( a few miles to the north of E-Lake)  became an elegant public swimming hole for local Gables residents.

E-Lake, on the other hand, remains private… for the sole use of the homeowners who reside there.

By the 1960’s two developers began building homes on the land immediately surrounding E-Lake.   F & R  Builders and Jennings were the two prominent builders and many of their homes are still right where they built them.  Jennings homes are known for the scalloped edges in the closets, and their solid construction… enabling Jennings homes  throughout South Florida to withstand hurricanes in the days when  shutters or impact windows were the name of the game. Today,  many of the original Jennings homes on E-Lake have been added to, enlarged or remodeled.  Nevertheless,those homes that originally sold for $15,000.00-$20,ooo.00  occupy lots  today that themselves are valued at over a million dollars.  

Real estate has long been a wise investment!  There are certainly market ups and downs, but in the long run, real estate (especially water front property) often appreciates nicely
