Why You'll ❤️ It

1. Old Spanish Charm

In the market for an Old Spanish home?

Old Spanish homes built in the 1920's offer a style and charm you won't find in other architectural styles in Coral Gables.

Watch closely as you pull up to the driveway and you'll notice the white pecky cypress ceiling the moment you step foot in the spacious front porch. This sets the tone for what you'll find inside.

What you'll find inside is a grand living room with high ceilings, walnut-stained wood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and large window openings that provide plentiful natural light.

Entertaining guests is a cinch in this open eat-in kitchen, which flows seamlessly into the formal dining room. They team up with the living room to create the perfect entertainment triangle. 

This isn't your standard everyday Old Spanish 2/2.  A den offers versatility.

Home office? Baby nursery? Walk-in closet? You decide how you want to utilize this space.

2. Updates

Everybody loves the charm of an Old Spanish, but nobody wants to live like it's 1926.

Cook much? Check out the kitchen.

What you see is custom cabinetry that goes all the way up to the ceiling, quartz counter tops, stainless steel Kitchen Aid range, oven, and dishwasher, Jenn-Air refrigerator, Kohler fixtures, and recessed lighting.

Concerned about hurricane season and energy efficiency?

The PGT impact-resistant windows and back door kill those two birds with one stone.

Speaking of energy efficiency, the HVAC unit was replaced recently. You may want to pack a light jacket.

3. Location

Two words. Coral Gables. They don't call it City Beautiful for nothing. 

This home is just a short bike ride from Country Club Prado (a pet-friendly 13-acre greenbelt), a 12-minute walk to the Publix on Red Road (which is efficient and incredibly amazing), and less than a 2-mile radius from 45 holes of golf, 29 tennis courts, restaurants, cafes, burger joints, bars, shopping, bookstores, art galleries, the Coral Gables Youth Center, the Coral Gables Library, and the only pool in the National Register of Historic Places.

BONUS: You're also a short bike ride from the best pastelito de guayaba in town, Sedanos (because where else can you get the RIGHT lacon and  chorizo for that red bean soup you're gonna make in your new home), and  CVS (because it's not like there isn't one on every major intersection in town).

Take a look at some of the neighborhood amenities in the map below.

Need to be close to the airport? Miami International is a 15-minute Uber (or Lyft) ride.

Work in Brickell? That's a 20-minute podcast listening session.

Like sporting your Vans® on the weekend? You could be in Wynwood in 20 minutes or less. Don't forget your Fedora. 

World famous South Beach (thanks Madonna)? That's just 30 minutes away.

You're basically in the center of it all. Zero long commutes for you. 

4. School

Coral Gables Preparatory Academy is not only a beautiful building with historical significance, it's the K-8 school zoned to 1257 Medina. It's been an A+ Florida school for the past 14 years and it's less than a mile away. 

In short, this is a great opportunity to move into a school district with a public Elemiddle recognized as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
