The Chinese Village is one of seven villages George Merrick planned in 1926 to add diversity to Coral Gables. The compound-style village was designed by Henry Murphy, who spent decades traveling China & studying Orientalism. The 8 houses are so elaborate, from the Chinese-style gabled roofs to the bright colors inspired by Chinese temples & palaces. Every house has some red, signifying luck & happiness. Traditional "Foo Dog" statues stand in front of the homes for good luck. The gates provide a sense of community, as communal living is tradition in China.

Homes are popular on Instagram, too.
Popular places get a lot of love and attention on Instagram. But so do pictures of homes. The right photo can grab your attention (like the ones above). Quality images are equally as important in real estate. According to the Center for REALTOR® Development (CRD), homes with high-quality photography sell 32% faster and for more money. That's why every home we list receives both professional photography and paid advertising on Instagram.
