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!

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.
