The Tiny House Movement … HGTV … What are the chances of it hitting Miami?

The tiny house movement  ….which is defined as real estate consisting of 600 square feet or less of living space… is trending.  HGTV is currently airing shows dedicated to the Tiny House Movement.    “Tiny House Hunters”.

Tiny-House-225x300

 

I got a kick out of seeing THIS,  just up the street from my house in North Pinecrest earlier today.  I wonder what one would spend to buy it  … and what it would be like to live inside those four walls.

With all the massive ground breaking developments popping up all over Miami, and record numbers of mega mansions under construction in Pinecrest…. there are people intrigued with the idea of “doing with less”.   But how many of us could really do with this much less, I don’t know.

As I followed this tiny house down the road,  my first thought was …  “I could live there.”   In theory, the idea intrigues me … that minimalistic concept of owning a cottage or cabin.  It will be interesting to see whether the tiny house movement can or does take hold in Miami.

This  house on wheels  had solar panels …  and other than that I have no clue as to what else it did or didn’t have … or even where it was headed…  but I was unquestionably amused, and am still smiling.

And to top it off, the first person I showed this picture to said “Oh, I need to move there!”

Whatever you real estate needs,  Alexandra and I would be pleased to work with you … The Restivo Hechtman Team at EWM Realty International.  Contact us anytime !

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.

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.
