Why We Love "Made in Italy"

1. "Bring Your Toothbrush"

Ugh! We hate when lazy agents use "Bring your toothbrush!" to describe a home, but we couldn't help ourselves with this one. 

Why? This turnkey condo unit in 55 Merrick is offered furnished with only the best in Italian and American design. 

From the Spazio Di Casa sectional sofa, Mitchell Gold desk, and Jane Seymour/Michael Amini media console with electric fireplace in the living room to the Pietro Constantini dining room set, Bernhardt upholstered Queen-size bed, and Candace Olson wallpaper with embedded Swarovski crystals in the powder room, no stone was left unturned when designing and furnishing this home.

All you have to do is...bring your toothbrush! And your clothes. Don't forget your clothes.

2. Versatility

If you're in the market for a 1-bedroom condo in Coral Gables, you've probably seen numerous 700+/- sq ft condo units.

This isn't one of those.

This is a 1-bedroom unit with a den and 990 sq ft.

Need a home office? Study? Media room? Play room? Guest bedroom?

You decide what this is.

That's a custom Mitchell Gold velvet sofa bed with a memory foam mattress, a Baker Server Buffet, a lovely antique armoire, and engineered hardwood floors.

3. Calm

I don't know a lot of things, but I do know this. If this was home, my Headspace app would get a lot of work out here.

Breakfast in the morning and (bottles of) wine in the evenings would too.

4. The Setting

55 Merrick is an 8-story mixed-use condominium built in a postmodern Mediterranean style in the heart of Downtown Coral Gables. 

It's a place where the elegantly-appointed, double-height lobby is staffed 24 hours a day by a front-desk attendant who knows your name.

A place where you wake up in the morning and enjoy a workout in the fully-equipped fitness center.

A place where you take a dip in the pool and relax in the spa after a long day.

A place where you sunbathe in the lounging terrace on the weekends.

Or challenge your friends to a game of pool.

Need more? Take the elevator to the ground floor and test your underwater cycling skills at Water Biking Studio. Or push, power, and perform at Iron Tribe, so you can stretch those muscles out later at Pilates ProWorks.

No time for a new hairdo, mani or pedi? Evolution Salon & Spa will have you looking brand new in no time.

Woke up with a stuffy nose, sore throat, and a sinus headache? Get back in the elevator, press "L", and walk over to the northeast corner of the building. Baptist Health Medical Plaza Urgent Care has you covered.

5. The Walkability

Hard to believe you've yet to leave the building. But when you do, you'll discover that 55 Merrick is basically in Yelp Heaven.

Imagine living in a place where you walk to a new dining experience every day and need months to discover all the spots. That's 55 Merrick.

Pull up Yelp on your phone and search for restaurants, bars, cafes, and coffee shops within a four block radius. Let me help you with the results.

Graziano's Marketplace, Pincho Factory, Pasion del Cielo, The Local, Pummarola, Chandler's Place, Castelluccio, Bulla, Swine, Frenchie's, Threefold Cafe, Cafe Demetrio, Gusto Fino Italian Deli, Fratellino, Hillstone, Ortanique on the Mile, Bugatti, Caffe Abbracci, Seasons 52, 5411 Empanadas, Talavera, Ruth's Chris, Uvaggio, Cibo, Copper 29, Tap 42, Fritz & Franz Bierhaus, and The Seven Dials are just a few of the establishments you'll see on the list.

You may have noticed construction nearby on Giralda and Miracle Mile. That's part of the The Miracle Mile and Giralda Avenue Streetscape project. When completed later this year, the project will provide a pedestrian-friendly experience with gardens, outdoor dining, improved lighting, way finding, public art and a lot of fun. You get to enjoy that first. Every day.

According to Walk Score, the walkability of cities and neighborhoods translates directly into increases in home values. Homes located in more walkable neighborhoods—those with a mix of common daily shopping and social destinations within a short distance—command a price premium over otherwise similar homes in less walkable areas. 

Ninety Seven! That's the Walk Score for 55 Merrick. That means it's in a "Walker's Paradise" where daily errands do not require a car. This is your opportunity to ditch the soccer mom van!

You can't walk to Miami International Airport, but that's just a 15-minute Uber (or Lyft) ride away.

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? That's just 30 minutes away.

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

What You Need to Know

An elegantly-appointed turnkey unit in the heart of thriving Downtown Coral Gables? There's nothing else like this on the market. 

You'll know it the moment you enter Made in Italy.

To the right you'll find the powder room with the Swarovski crystal-embedded Candace Olson wallpaper.

To the left is the open eat-in kitchen with granite tops, stainless steel appliances, and tons of storage space. Note the recessed lighting above.

Straight ahead is the living room complete with a Spazio Di Casa sectional with white Mitchell Gold accent pillows, Barbara Barry for Baker side tables, Jane Seymour/Michael Amini media console with electric fireplace, and a Mitchell Gold desk.

The Italian crystal chandelier with the custom ceiling plate in the back defines the dining area. Just look at that Pietro Constantini dining set and that elegant velvet-lined mirrored buffet!

You'll find the master suite split to the other side of the living room. It features the same engineered wood floors you saw in the den, a Bernhardt upholstered Queen bed with William Sonoma Home accent pillows, an Urban Loft crystal chandelier, and Ralph Lauren lamps.

The hallway to the right leads you to the master bath and houses a walk-in closet and a laundry closet with stacked washer/dryer.

The master bath is spacious and features a separate tub and shower, double Kohler toiletry cabinet and Ferguson light fixture.

Don't forget to step outside to the over-sized balcony facing the courtyard and overlooking the pool. Can you imagine coming home to this every day?
