Tropical Inspired Updated Home with Promise of the Exotic … 10651 SW 65 Avenue, Pinecrest $1,850,000

Nestled behind black olives, exotic palms & clusia, this extraordinary, updated/remodeled home has a backyard that rivals Fairchild Tropical Botanical Gardens…. with  30+ varieties of rare mature palms…. &  12+ varieties of fruit trees (mango, guava, lychee, citrus, avocado)… along with spectacular outdoor lighting.


An enormous 50 foot pool ( 20′ x 50′ …  10 feet deep … with a diving board) anchors the back yard… with  shaded walkways & meandering  paths, screened porches/patios,  filtered sunlight,  and a hot tub.



The current owner added a brand new wing in 2000, artfully & whimsically updating & remodeling the home, installing impact windows & doors.  The baths, the master suite & ensuite bath, the family room & the kitchen (the heart of the home!)  were all redone in 2011 – 2012, knocking out  3 rooms to create a magazine-quality chef’s kitchen which has been used in the filming of several commercials. Remarkably, this home has been in same family for 53 years.  *** To see it is to know why ***  All of the rooms are oversized.   The Great Room has high-beamed scissor-joist ceilings, oak floors with walnut trim, a working fireplace with a mantle that was purchased in Ireland.  There are 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths … 4,676 square feet…  And it’s a corner acre lot.

10651 SW 65th Avenue in Pinecrest was featured on The Villagers 2014 House Tour,  “Then & Now”.   Located on one of the prettiest streets in Pinecrest  … and within the highly desirable Pinecrest Elementary School District… it’s secreted away from the fray.    It is unquestionably a  one-of-a-kind home …  with  stunningly bucolic gardens that hint at the romantic & exotic.
10651 SW 65th Avenue is believed to be the oldest post WW II house,  & it is 1 of only 2 remaining homes within the Village of Pinecrest made entirely of slump brick.
John Koumjian built the home in 1950 … And the current owners beautifully remodeled it from 2000- 2012.
