Miami Real Estate... A World All Its Own

Looking For A Home On A Large Lot?

Kiaora Street is one of the most exclusive in all of Coconut Grove. Only thirteen homes front onto this lushly overgrown south Grove lane, with lots between one-half and two acres in size. Considering that only a handful of homes in the Grove have over 20,000 square feet of land, you can see why this one is so unique.

The original homes were built in the late 1930’s and throughout the 1940’s and have been extensively enlarged and renovated over the years. Today there are two stunning homes for sale which is a rare occurrence.

4040 Kiaora St

The 66 Foot Lap Pool Leads to the Three Room Guest Cottage

Currently listed for $2,825,000, 4040 Kiaora is a 6 bedroom/6 bathroom two-story home built in 1949 and listed by EWM.

Original Coconut Grove Bungalow For Sale

There aren’t many original Grove bungalows left anymore, but one dating from 1921 is for sale at 3571 Linden Lane for $495,000. This 2 bedroom, two bathroom gem hasn’t been messed up by thoughtless renovations and it simply oozes charm!

The Front of the House

It sits on a corner lot ( 8,800 square feet) behind a high wall which hides the lush tropical gardens surrounding the house. Winding Chicago-brick pathways lead to zen-like pockets where you’ll find shady seating, sculptures, and a pond with waterfall. There’s also a large deck off the bright Florida room and kitchen that is a natural extension of the 1,668 square foot home and is made for entertaining.

Sunny Bay Window

You enter through a coral rock screened porch to the living room graced by a coral rock fireplace and Dade County pine floors. Those floors extend throughout the entire house.

Screened Porch

The kitchen has been updated to today’s standards, keeping the period feel of the place intact , and includes a Jenn Aire gas range. The open wall into the Florida Room keeps the cook in front of family and guests, unusual in homes from this time. Both rooms open onto the deck, as does the butler’s pantry off the dining room.

Butler's Pantry

The house is truly special, and I really hope whoever buys it will preserve the charm and not – egads! – tear it down.

If you’re interested in this house, call me at 305 794.6570 for an appointment to see it.
