Off the Beaten Path – Coconut Grove Homes with a Cottage

 

In digging through the  South Grove on behalf of buyers,  aching for a Small Grove House with a Cottage,  we uncovered  two  Grove homes  that stand out –  each currently listed  for sale –  each  rather intriguing.  

The first is unobtrusively hidden away behind a coral rock wall.  3925 Leafy Way is secreted out back  behind a separate garage/cottage  along the street front.  The house itself is a two-bedroom built in 1925 and has 1,235 sq feet of living space in the main house.

At the rear of the house there’s a free-form rock-pond, the size of a swimming pool.  There’s a chickee hut,  grounds, and paths lush with vegetation. If you’re looking for something unique …  old, with character… this might be worth seeing.  It’s listed by Nerisse with EWM Realtors, and priced at $849,000.00.

Another unusual Grove House,  in South Grove, is  3564 Avocado Avenue: A  two-bedroom two-story ‘cottage’  that looks as though it were designed by a master ship-builder out of pecky cypress… with cubbies and porches and patios… secluded and nestled into the greenery… .  No usable  nook or crannie of this 1,562 sq foot house went unutilized!  And the house has had only three owners since being built in 1936.3564 Avocado

Behind the house itself is a second structure: an open air, covered,  entertainment area that extends out from the “garage”  and  from a second-floor guest cottage.  The property is another listed by Nerisse through EWM Realtors, and priced at $619,000.00. I dont’ know which has more charm and appeal, the house or it’s guest cottage. 3564 Avocado Balcony
