Longview, just like many of the plots of land along Bayshore Drive, is situated between South Bayshore Drive and Tigertail Avenue giving it an extra point of ingress and egress. Many of these pieces of land actually used to run all the way down to Biscayne Bay.
Longview was originally the home of Alfred Whitting but in the 1930’s was sold to philanthropist W.T. Grant. In 1937 Mr. Grant donated Longview to the University of Miami and it became the President of UM’s home for the next 37 years. It was the scene of many of the University’s social and ceremonial functions.
Today, Longview consists of 10 luxury two-story villas. Common areas of Longview include a 60 foot pool with waterfall and tennis court. It is a great combination of today’s luxury mixed with the charm of yesterday’s Coconut Grove.
Homes in Longview rarely become available for sale. When they do, they typically sell very quickly and for a premium.
