Why We Love It

1. The Neighborhood

1421 Algeria is located on the 1400 block of Algeria Ave between Lisbon St and Ferdinand St in The City Beautiful.  This portion of Algeria Ave is characterized by its pedestrian-friendly scale, shade trees, and a total of just nine single-family homes.

It's the type of place where children ride bikes, adults walk dogs, and neighbors look out for one another. 

You're just two blocks east of Country Club Prado, a pet-friendly 13-acre greenbelt where a pick-up game of lacrosse and a Quinceañera photo shoot coexist, walking distance to the new Publix on Red Road (which is efficient and amazing), and minutes from 45 holes of golf, 29 tennis courts, countless restaurants, cafes, burger joints, bars, shopping, bookstores, art galleries, a youth center, library, and the only pool in the National Register of Historic Places.

Travel for work? Miami International Airport is a 15-minute Uber (or Lyft) ride.

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

Like sporting your Vans® on the weekend? You could be in Wynwood in 25 minutes or less. Don't forget your Fedora. 

World famous South Beach? That's just 30 minutes away.

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

The best part? You're surrounded by architecturally significant homes built in the 1920's, 30's, 40's, 50's, and beyond. And shade trees. Lots and lots of shade trees.

2. The Spaces

Do you know how many updated 4-bedroom, 4-bath homes with over 2,600 adj sq ft and a swimming pool are available for $1,000,000 or less in Coral Gables?

One. You're reading about it now.

If you've been shopping for a Coral Gables home with 4 bedrooms or 3 bedrooms and a den/home office, you know how difficult it is to find a decent home at a respectable price.

This home offers you that necessary space thanks to a wise addition to the back of the home by the current owners.

All the bedrooms are ample-sized with good closet space. The master bedroom is 16' x 14' with two walk-in closets, an en-suite bath, and double French doors with direct access to the pool.

The kitchen features a modern design that opens to the dining room, which flows into a light-filled family room with over-sized arched windows, double French doors with a lunette, and voluminous ceilings.

The bathrooms. Can't talk about "the spaces" without mentioning the baths. There are FOUR full baths at 1421 Algeria. 

There's the guest bath with double sinks and a linen closet, the full bath inside the guest bedroom, the gorgeous master bath with separate shower and tub, and the cabana bath accessible from the pool and patio area. 

Cause don't nobody got time for tracking dirt and water inside the house.

3. The Backyard

We know. The backyard can become an afterthought once you experience the spaces inside this home.

However, step out the double French doors in the family room and you'll see why the backyard is one of the reasons we love 1421 Algeria. 

With a covered terrace and a sparkling swimming pool just steps away, this backyard lends itself as a great place to entertain no matter how many friends and "Cuban Cousins" you invite over.

This is where you play the role of Grill Master or just sit back, relax, and enjoy the warm South Florida sun while someone else flips the Churrascos. 

To keep it basic, this is an outdoor lover's paradise and now is the perfect time for you to enjoy it with the weather breaking 95 degrees and 85% humidity in the shade.

I see you sipping a frozen margarita in the shallow end.  Cheers!

What You Need to Know

The minute you turn onto Algeria Ave, you will feel what we understand about this neighborhood. The shade trees, the short block with reduced vehicular traffic and only nine homes, the tranquility.

As you pull up to the stamp concrete driveway, you will notice the space between you and your neighbors, the nicely-kept landscaped gardens, and the welcoming front porch.


When you enter the home into the living room, take notice of the details, such as the Carrara marble, the recessed lighting, the trims around the windows and doorways, and the interior walls, which were skimmed and smoothed by the current owners.

To the right are two of the four bedrooms and a guest bath with double sinks and a linen closet. The bedrooms feature 15-panel glass doors, rectangular gray ceramic tile, ample closet space, and large window openings

Straight ahead from the living room is the dining room. This space is centered around the open kitchen and the family room.

Spacious and functional, the kitchen will have you whipping up gourmet meals that will impress your pickiest guests. You'll love the white KraftMaid® cabinets, granite counter tops with coordinated linear glass backsplash , stainless steel appliances, and recessed lighting.

To the left of the kitchen is the 1-car garage, which can be used as a bonus room, play room, storage room or to park an actual car. The garage also includes the full-size, front-loading washer and dryer.

The family room will most likely be the place where you spend time relaxing, reading, listening to music, and watching TV. This room has a great feel with the over-sized arched windows, double French doors, and voluminous ceilings. If you love natural light, it doesn't get better than this. The double French doors provide access to the covered terrace, swimming pool, and backyard. 

Follow the hallway to the left of the family room and you'll encounter the fourth bedroom to the left. The private bath with shower is perfect for family and guests staying for a few days.

Across the hallway is the master bedroom, which is 16' x 14' with two walk-in closets, an en-suite bath, and double French doors with direct access to the pool.
