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.

Pinecrest Place recently broke ground and is now officially underway in North Pinecrest … with half of the homes in Pinecrest Place already having been sold …

GC 3 Development saw a need for a luxury gated home development, and is doing so at the site known as The Horse Farm  which Binder Development purchased for 5 million dollars in 2014 ….  Pinecrest Place will consist of 10 single family homes… located at 9600 SW 72nd Avenue … diagonally across from Royal Palm Tennis Club.pinecrest place pic

Each home within this private gated community will occupy a builder’s half acre (15,000 sq feet).

Each will have it’s own private pool.  Each will range in price from $2.495 million to $2.9 million.

Mature trees will be strategically relocated so as to create an impressive canopy & landscaping, and the homeowners association will provide private lawn and pool service.

Features:   High quality finishes. Mia Cucina kitchens. Impact glass.  Well designed living spaces. 19 foot ceilings.  6 bedrooms minimum. Each bedroom with it’s own ensuite bath.  Cement tile roofs.  One and two story options.

We met with Sergio Fuenzalida, Sales and Development  Associate of GC 3, last week,  to discuss the project on behalf of a client .  There are fuve homes still available.

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.

IMG_9681

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.

 

IMG_1631

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.
