DeGarmo Estates sits at the intersection of Douglas Road and Main Highway. The property is located on the former estate of Walter C. DeGarmo. In fact, his original home still exists on the site and has been carefully and beautifully restored. In 1993, developers built 10 new construction homes within the walls of the DeGarmo estate. It has since become a very private and exclusive community. The new construction homes maintained the Mediterranean style that DeGarmo was famous for. There have been very few sales in the community over the past few years.
Walter DeGarmo was a prominent and influential South Florida architect. He graduated from Cornell University with a BA in Architecture and moved to Coconut Grove in 1903 with his father. Upon moving to South Florida, he designed numerous buildings and houses in the area. He was known for his open air loggias and courtyards. My research indicates that DeGarmo designed over 30 homes throughout the Coconut Grove area.
