Why It Sold in 8 Days

1. Period Details

1930's homes are generally smaller in scale and not considered as charming as their 1920's predecessors. 640 Zamora is an exception to that rule.

The minute you pull up to the front of the home, you'll notice the different roof lines and chimney, the barrel tile, the carport, the flowerbed, the neatly manicured landscaping, and the front porch with its beautiful quarry tile.

Step inside and you're greeted by the comfortable and open living area with its gorgeous Dade County Pine floors, textured stucco walls, wood-burning fireplace, and abundance of natural light.

Take note of the craftsmanship in the transition from the living room to the bedroom hallway. They don't make 'em like this anymore!

2. Move-in Ready

We love the charm of a 1930's home, but nobody wants to live like it's 1938.

This home has been beautifully renovated while respecting and maintaining it's architectural integrity.

Like to cook? 

You're gonna ❤️ this kitchen. The size, the cabinet space, the pass-through eat-in counter, the Sub Zero refrigerator, the gas-powered Wolf range, the recessed lighting. All of it.

Entertain like the boss that you are! FYI...that's a 96-inch dining table, by the way.

The Italian Carrara basketweave tile though. 👌🏽 

Laundry is inside! Nuff said.


3. Location

The Coral Estates subdivision of Coral Gables, Florida.

Take a 13-minute walk to the Granada Golf Course, a nine-hole Par 36 with a fully-stocked pro shop, locker room, and Burger Bob's, a 1950's style diner where you can score a pretty mean patty melt, hot dog grilled on a flat top, and everything else you expect to find in a diner - eggs, bacon, sausage, grits, potatoes, and CALORIES.

Cross the street to the Coral Gables Country Country Club, home to the Coral Gables Athletic Club, a community-based athletic club where you work out in a state-of-the-art fitness center, spin with certified instructors, and practice the butterfly stroke in a junior Olympic-sized pool.

Refueling after a workout is as easy as walking next door to Liberty Caffe, a clutch neighborhood spot for coffee, breakfast, pizzas, pastas, wraps, salads, juices, smoothies, and gelato.

Is golf your thing? 

In addition to the 9-hole Granada Golf Course, you can also tee off where the legends have played - the Donald Ross designed Biltmore Golf Course just a mile and a half away. Or take your talents three miles south to the Riviera Golf Course, an eighteen-hole Par 71 designed by Donald Ross as well.

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

If you're keeping score, that's 45 holes of golf within 3 miles and 29 tennis courts a bike ride 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, art galleries of Miracle Mile and Downtown Coral Gables, but those are all a hop, skip, and a jump away.

A day or night out in town means jumping on your Schwinn or a $7 Uber ride. Leave the keys at home.

Travel for work? Miami International Airport is a 15-minute ride.

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

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

4. School

Coral Gables Preparatory Academy is not only a beautiful building with historical significance, it's the K-8 school zoned to 640 Zamora. 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.
