Get That Key West Feel in a North Grove Location

New to the market this week is another of my favorite homes at 3071 Lucaya Street. The original 1949 bungalow was enlarged and completely rebuilt in 2006 with impact doors and windows (lots of both), metal roof, gorgeous pool area, and a second floor.

At the center of everything downstairs is the kitchen where family and guests can enjoy watching the cook from across a butcher-block topped work area open to everything. There’s a formal dining area as well as alfresco dining on the covered patio by the pool.

Arriving upstairs the first thing you reach is a large family room where the kids can do homework or watch television, or the family can simply be together without going downstairs. There are 3 large bedrooms plus the master suite on this floor. The master has a vaulted ceiling and a wraparound terrace overlooking the very private walled-in yard with a sparkling 20 X 40 pool.3071 Lucaya St Pool Area

Boutique Waterfront Condo Sold

The Pool by the Bay at 1600 South Bayshore Lane Condos

The Pool by the Bay at 1600 South Bayshore Lane Condos

I’ve written several posts about my favorite small waterfront building at 1600 S. Bayshore Lane, located on the bay just across from Grove Isle. With only 32 apartments on 9 floors it’s not often that there’s anything available for sale. The residents tend to stay and some own more than one unit.

I wrote about the 2 bedroom/2 bathroom apartment that was listed by Marilyn Tatman of Coldwell-Banker in June this year when it came on the market for $349,000. It has just closed for $332,500, or $313 per square foot. The average price per square foot for real waterfront condos, not those across S. Bayshore Drive looking at the water, is $355 per square foot, which gives me another reason to prefer this building to all others!

I’ve sold many of these apartments over the years and know it and most of the owners well. If you are interested in learning more about this boutique building give me a call at 305 794.6570 or leave me a note.

Rarely Available Waterfront Condo Hits The Market

The Pool on the Bay at 1600 South Bayshore Lane Condos

It’s not often that anything is available at my favorite small condo in Coconut Grove. Located right on the bay in north Coconut Grove, 1600 South Bayshore Lane Condos is a boutique building with only 4 apartments per floor on nine floors. It’s not new or loaded with today’s amenities but has the character of the Grove in days gone by.

There’s not a doorman but you must be let through the security gate to have the resident buzz you into the building. There is no valet parking, but there’s enough parking inside the gate for your friends to park in a secure area. No gym either, but there’s a heated bay-side pool, a bike storage shed, and it’s 3 minutes on a dedicated path to the vita course at Kennedy Park.

Marilyn Tatman at Coldwell-Banker has listed unit 5-C for $395,000. This 2 bedroom 2 bathroom updated apartment has a bay view, as does every apartment in the building. Details can be seen here.

There are docks available for rent from the Association at the unbelievable price of $100 per month for residents only. Boats up to 10″ beam, 40 foot length and 6″ depth will fit into the available well-protected spaces. Pets are also allowed, with no restrictions or limitations. Besides that heated pool there is a sauna and a covered barbecue area

If you or someone you know has been yearning for that little place on the bay, this is it! These don’t change owners often and it should sell quickly.

Coconut Grove is a unique village, and you need a hyper-local specialist working for you here. Whether you are selling, buying, renting or investing I can help you make the right decisions.For more information or an appointment to see this apartment call me at 305 794.6570 or leave me a message.
