Longview is a very sought after community in Coconut Grove. It is a small enclave of 10 luxury two-story villas surrounded by lush gardens, a pool and tennis court. It is ideally situated between South Bayshore Drive and Tigertail Avenue in North Coconut Grove. The last property to come on the market in Longview was my listing at 2475 South Bayshore Drive Unit #8 back in 2012 which closed for $915,000. There is a new opportunity to get into the gated...Continue Reading!

While I was gone there were some important sales that I wanted to let you know about. 3843 Little Avenue | Gated Community of...Continue Reading!

Over the past 12 months the number of homes for sale in our Coconut Grove gated communities has been slowly declining. Many homes have sold and there have been very few to hit the market. One of the surprising facts you will notice as you review my notes below is that the starting price points for many of these communities now begins at $3,000,000 or higher. For example, the lowest priced home in The Moorings (one of Coconut Grove's largest gated...Continue Reading!
If you own a boat then you probably know that dock space is some of the most coveted real estate in Coconut Grove. Why? We only have a handful of marinas in the Grove and most of them have a 1+ year waiting list for a wet slip. That is why I wanted to let you know about this villa in L'Hermitage that just came on the market. Unit 49 offers 4,029 square feet of living space with 4 bedrooms,...Continue Reading!
I just listed a very special property in Coconut Grove. Located in the guard-gated community of Four Way Lodge Estates, this is an architecturally distinctive home with open living spaces, custom built-ins, a cook's kitchen with gas range & island, large office, library as well as a loft. One of my favorite things about the home is the outdoor living areas. Whether you want to sit on a rocking chair on one of the covered balconies or relax by the...Continue Reading!

Today I would like to present our newest listing in Coconut Grove located at 3645 Stewart Avenue in the prestigious guard-gated community of Entrada Estates. This home was built in the 1920's and has been restored with attention to every detail.

I am excited to announce that I have just closed on our listing located at 3437 North Moorings Way in the gated community of The Moorings. This was one of the original homes in The Moorings which dates back to the early 1900's. The Old World architecture was evident in the unique features of the home including the grand living areas, original fireplaces, library, covered terraces and loggias and a pool reminiscent of Vizcaya. The home at 3437 North Moorings Way...Continue Reading!
Many of Coconut Grove's gated communities were once the large estates of a single owner and subsequently sub-divided into smaller parcels of land. One exception to this is Ye Little Wood which was the first platted community in Coconut Grove. Ye Little Wood dates back to 1883 when the United States granted William Ewan of South Carolina 160 acres of land in Coconut Grove. Several years later he sold 10 acres of this land to John Webb Little for $3,350.00 a...Continue Reading!
