Ye Little Wood is one of my favorite gated communities in Coconut Grove. As you enter through the gates you are greeted by historic homes on spacious lots nestled along a winding road with a lush tree canopy overhead.
The community 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 bargain! These ten acres of land became the subdivision of Ye Little Wood. John Webb Little’s son, William Vogleson Little was very active in the community and was the mayor and municipal judge for the Town of Coconut Grove from 1920 to 1921. As the Director and Vice-President of the Bank of Coconut Grove, he was very involved in the first developments of the Grove community.
An advertisement in The Miami Herald from Jan 11, 1920, refers to Ye Little Wood as “Unique, attractive residential suburban homesites, in the heart of aristocratic Coconut Grove, combining the conveniences of the city with the charm and exclusiveness of the country…” I would say that the same description applies today.
Included in the 33 homes of Ye Little Wood is the property at 3848 Little Avenue (William Little’s home) which has been classified a historic site by the Historic Preservation Board Of Miami. Built in 1902, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath home has changed ownership many times over the years. The property was designated historic in 2007.
Another historically designated home in Ye Little Wood is located at 3802 Little Avenue. William Little sold this property to Katherine Edwards Wyatt and her husband Thomas Hall Wyatt in 1915. The property was designated historic in 2011.
