Spectacularly Updated Deering Bay Condo with Views of the Marina … Under Contract Although Not Listed for Sale

With gorgeous views of the Grand Marina in Deering Bay,  this spacious 3 bedroom condo in  “Venice”  was perfect for our buyer… although it wasn’t  listed for sale.

The current owner meticulously remodeled it  (removing walls to create a stunning ‘open concept’ contemporary home) … and everything about it was  ‘right’, except that  it wasn’t for sale.

BUT … sometimes that doesn’t matter.

Open Concept with Soaring High Ceilings in Miami’s Hottest New Neighborhood

Located in one of Miami’s HOTTEST new neighborhoods, this open-concept home with soaring high ceilings, plenty of natural light  & clerestory windows  just came on the market for $475,000 (and will go fast!).

It literally just came on the market two days ago, listed for sale through Vicki Restivo and Alexandra Hechtman .  The address:   12451 SW 89th Ct, Miami, Florida 33176.

89 ct living room

It has 3 bedrooms …  3 baths…  a fenced backyard …  oak trees in the front …  an enormous lychee tree in the back …. covered patios for outdoor entertaining …  a detached garage with it’s own bathroom & laundry.

And yes, there’s definitely space for a pool.

The living room is really a great room with formal dining …  There is  a kitchen with a breakfast bar as well as rather cozy breakfast nook.  And the kitchen overlooks both the gardens and the front yard.

This house has SO MUCH POTENTIAL.

Built in 1995 this 3 bedroom 3 bath home is ready for your touch (now… or bit by bit as you live and grow into it) … It has good closet space & storage… plenty of character … and is rather unique and quite lovely.

 

89 ct front

Located close to transportation, shops, & dining, this is one of Miami’s most up and coming neighborhoods which just happens to fall within the school boundaries of three of Miami’s top public schools (Vineland Elementary, Palmetto Middle, & Miami Palmetto Senior High).

This one will go fast!   If you (or someone you know) would like to see it,  contact either Vicki Restivo 305 793-1365 or Alexandra Hechtman – EWM Realty International.  Believe me, it will go fast!
