4 Reasons You Need to See Her Today

1. 3-Bedrooms

Guess how many 3-bedroom condos under $500,000 in Coral Gables offer over 700 sq ft of open terrace in a full-amenity building?

If you guessed "one", you guessed correctly. You're learning about it now.

See that 3rd bedroom in the middle? That's not a den. It has a closet and sliding glass doors. 

Those sliding glass doors not only provide plentiful natural light, they provide access to the pièce de résistance.

2. Pièce de Résistance

Who says you need to be boxed inside four walls when living in a condo?

Bet you'll prove those non-believers wrong when you show them this.

This is just a 715 sq ft terrace accessible to you and only you.

Well, you and your guests. And family and friends... and colleagues and your new neighbor friends.

You get it. This is where you go for fresh air. Where you lounge and read a page-turner, sit and sip your morning coffee, and yes, gather and celebrate good times with friends and family... and a few of your favorite adult beverages.

Photo of terrace is virtually staged to include furniture, plants and different flooring. See actual photo of terrace here.

3. The Setting

Before we get into the setting, let's talk about the conveniences unique to The Douglas Queen.

Like the two assigned parking spaces conveniently located on the same level as your condo. Cause who likes to wait for an elevator to get home after kicking butt at work all day? 

It gets better, though. That air-conditioned storage unit that belongs to you? That's also located on the same level as your condo, so no having to schlep belongings from floor to floor. Ain't nobody got time for that!

The Douglas Queen is located inside Puerta de Palmas, a 16-story condominium built in a Mediterranean style at the historic Douglas Entrance of 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.

Or challenge your friends to a friendly game of putt-putt.

4. The Location

Imagine living in a place where you can have a new dining experience every day for months and still not discover all the spots. That's The Douglas Queen.

Pull up Yelp on your phone and search for restaurants, bars, cafes, and coffee shops within walking distance or just a free trolley-ride away. Let me help you with the results.

Eating House, Tinta y Cafe, Ms Cheezious, The Seven Dials, Graziano's Marketplace, Pincho Factory, Pasion del Cielo, The Local, Pummarola, Chandler's Place, Castelluccio, Bulla, Swine, Frenchie's Diner, 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, and Fritz & Franz Bierhaus are just a few of the neighborhood spots you'll see on the list.

Dinner and drinks without jumping in your car never sounded this good.

Looking for fresh produce, locally-sourced honey, organic fruits, and handmade beauty products? The Farmers Market at Douglas Entrance takes place every other Thursday. Healthy eats are just an elevator ride away!

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. 

Eighty! That's the Walk Score for The Douglas Queen. That means it's in a "Very Walkable" where most daily errands can be accomplished on foot. The SUV stays parked on the weekends!

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. 

Oh...four more words. Coral Gables Preparatory Academy. That's the K-8 school zoned to The Douglas Queen. It's been an A+ Florida school for the past 14 years and it's just 8 blocks away, so your little ones will never be late to school. 

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.
