Why You Should've Seen It

1. Attention to Detail

It's the little things that are important. The homeowners at 926 Castile understand this. It's their uncompromising attention to detail that makes you say, "This home was built to last!", the minute you pull up to the driveway.

From the double doors, wainscoting, trims, and decorative beams to the coffered ceilings, recessed lighting, intercom and music system, impact-resistant windows and doors, no stone was left unturned when remodeling this home.

You'll love the spacious kitchen, complete with solid cherry wood cabinets, soft-close drawers, granite counters, tumbled marble backsplash, under-mounted lighting, lighted cabinet displays, and large bay window overlooking the sparkling blue pool. 

Yes, the same sparkling blue pool that's accessible via French Doors from the family room, dining room, and two of the four bedrooms in the home.

Worried about guests tracking pool water into the house? A hallway bath doubles as a cabana bath accessible from the pool area.

Need space for storage or parking your classic sports car? The 2-car garage is extra roomy and air-conditioned.

Dislike having the washer and dryer inside the garage? 926 Castile has a separate laundry room with full-size, front-loading washer and dryer and a laundry tub.

We could go on and on, but if you take the 3D Tour above or click on the button below, you'll see what we mean.

2. Location

926 Castile is located in the Castile Avenue Historic District on a secluded street directly across from Young Park, a pet-friendly triangular neighborhood park that separates Castile Ave from Castile Plaza and creates a buffer between you and your neighbors across the street. Can you spell "PRIVACY"?

It's spelled something like this.

Walk one block to the north and you'll find Granada Golf Course, a nine-hole Par 36 with a fully-stocked pro shop, locker rooms, electric golf cart rental, and Burger Bob's, a 1950's style diner where you can score a pretty mean patty melt, a hot dog grilled on a flat top, and everything else you expect to find at a diner - eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, potatoes, and calories.

Walk another block to the north and you'll stumble upon the Coral Gables Country Club, home to the Coral Gables Athletic Club, a community-based athletic club where you can work out in a state-of-the-art fitness center, spin with certified instructors, and practice your butterfly stroke in a junior Olympic-sized pool.

Refueling after a workout is as easy as walking next door to Liberty Caffe, a great neighborhood spot for coffee, breakfast, pizzas, pastas, wraps, salads, juices, smoothies, and gelato. In short, a great option if you and/or your significant other are certified members of #TeamNoCook.

Are you a golf enthusiast? In addition to the nine-hole Granada Golf Course, you can also tee off where the legends have played. That would be the Donald Ross-designed Biltmore Golf Course just one mile away. Or take your talents two miles south to the Riviera Golf Course, an eighteen-hole Par 71 also designed by Donald Ross.

Is tennis more your speed? You have six courts just one block away at the Granada Golf Course. Training for the French Open? Salvadore Tennis Center has thirteen lighted clay courts and is just an 8-minute walk away. Still need more? The William H Kerdyk Sr Biltmore Tennis Center features ten lighted courts and is just a 5-minute bike ride away. 

If you're keeping score, that's 45 holes of golf within 2 miles and 29 tennis courts less than a mile from home.

We haven't even mentioned the Coral Gables Youth Center, the Coral Gables Library, Venetian Pool, the restaurants, cafes, burger joints, bars, shopping, bookstores, and art galleries of Miracle Mile and Downtown Coral Gables, but those are all walking distance too. A day or night out in the town means lacing up your New Balance 990's or jumping on your Schwinn. Car not necessary.

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

Work in Brickell or Doral? That's a 20-minute podcast listening session (The Tim Ferriss Show is a good one).

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

3. Outdoor Spaces

The homeowners of 926 Castile have put as much emphasis on their outdoor spaces as they have indoors. They essentially have an outdoor family room highlighted by a 25' x 15' in-ground swimming pool surrounded by a lushly landscaped garden and a completely fenced yard. 

Need a break from the swimming? Relax under the covered patio while you enjoy BBQ'd meats and cocktails with the ambiance of a warm South Florida evening and enjoy the sounds of nature from this comfortable space.

Like to entertain? The HUGE driveway will surely come in handy. It's 51 feet wide, 47 feet long, and easily fits up to six vehicles.

What You Need to Know

Pull up to the driveway, approach the covered entry, look down and around, and you'll find neatly-manicured gardens accented by pine straw mulch beds that help insulate the soil and don't move in heavy rains. Look up and you'll notice concrete fascias, soffits, and overhangs...cause nobody has time for wood that rots. Keep looking up and you'll notice rain gutters throughout. Details, details, details!


Step inside and take notice of the small, but oh-so-important details - the impact-resistant double doors with glass panes that allow natural light to flow through, the wainscoting, the decorative ceiling beams, the crown moldings, the baseboards. The craftsmanship in this room sets the tone for what's to come.

To your left is the living room. This space is ample and centered around three over-sized windows that provide views of your lush surroundings and flood the space with natural light. The coffered ceilings and dimmer-controlled recessed lighting add an elegant element.

Follow the light to the formal dining room where you'll find plenty of space to host family dinner parties and double French doors that provide access to the pool. 

Follow your nose to the kitchen. Strategically located in the center of the home, it flows seamlessly from the dining room and into the family room. 

It's worth repeating again. You're gonna love this kitchen. From the solid cherry wood cabinets, soft-close drawers, granite counters, tumbled marble backsplash, under-mounted lighting, and lighted cabinet displays to the large bay window overlooking the sparkling blue pool, this kitchen exemplifies quality craftsmanship.

The family room is the place to relax. This is where you watch movies and sports on surround sound with views of the pool. Don't care for TV? This is also a great room to lay on the sofa and read a page-turner like this. Or play Kamasi Washington's The Epic in a loop. Did we mention we love the ceilings in this room?

Take a few steps to the right and you'll find three doors - a powder room (half bath) for guests, a fully-equipped laundry room, and the extra roomy 2-car garage with its own air conditioning unit.

Walk over to the hallway where the family room ends and the private quarters begin. You'll find two bedrooms split to the right side of the hallway. A remodeled bath with dual sinks, linen closet, and access to the pool is split to the left followed by another bedroom with double French doors and access to the pool.  

The master bedroom is located at the end of the hallway. It features a large sitting area, double French doors with access to the pool, a huge walk-in closet, and a remodeled en-suite bath with dual sinks and separate shower and tub.
