This new listing is literally two houses up the street from one of my all-time favorite bungalow/cottages  … another cottage that was showcased in  Beth Dunlop’s book, “The Tropical Cottage – At Home in Coconut Grove”  … That other one, a 2 bedroom 1 bath cottage at 3720 Kumquat Avenue, was listed and sold by the Restivo Hechtman Team for $431,000.

Getting back to this ‘new’ quintessential Kumquat listing… It is adorable  … nestled under a tree canopy on one of the Grove’s most characteristic streets, Kumquat Avenue … Architecturally this one has a Spanish influence (with a touch of Alsace France  …  with it’s thick, pale blue stucco exterior).SRHSH-9399

This Kumquat cottage offers ‘everything’ Grove … the lifestyle …  friends and neighbors out and about …  bicyclists and passers-by heading to the center of town for breakfast on the weekends/  newspapers in hand …  strollers, dogs …  It’s a toss up whether the front porch or the front yard wins as the best spot for morning coffee.

In the front yard of this newly listed  Kumquat cottage, there is a tropical fish pond with night blooming water lilies … orchids, palms, and a step bridge over the pond. In the backyard there is a fire pit, shaded sitting area and umbrella canopy.  Up the front steps there is a screened-in porch running the width of the house …. with welcoming breezes and original arches.SRHSH-9413
