Historic Coral Gables Home is a Work of Art … a European Masterpiece

Unless I’m at Vizcaya, I don’t often stumble across the kind of artistic European detailing that we saw yesterday … in a house listed for sale at 644 Altara Avenue.  The workmanship and details are unique …. a breath of fresh air.   Listed for $2,189,000 the asking price translates to $450.00 a square foot.

Price per square foot can be “sticky”… because…  with any piece of artwork,  value hinges on workmanship (and location) … not just on mere size comparison.

644 Altara Av Kitchen

This  3/3.5 historic 1925-built Gables home … is a veritable museum of ornately detailed workmanship  … an artisan’s masterpiece….full of handcarved woodwork, stained glass, mosaic tile, a wine cellar, high impact copper windows and doors, vaulted ceilings,  charming gardens and patios, pool, and a 1/1 guest house.

This two story home is  listed listed by Remax.

I don’t often come across such exquisitely preserved homes in Miami … Historic homes are few and far between. They don’t get much ‘older’ than 1925  in South Florida.   And this one has the flair and warmth of the ‘old world’.
