Although it wasn’t my plan to post more than one property each week for Under $500k, I couldn’t resist sharing this property this week (it’s been on the market for 12 days and I have a feeling it won’t be available much longer!).  Plus, since I didn’t get a chance to post anything the last 2 weeks, I figure we’re making up for lost time.  Aaaand, since it’s located in Coral Gables, we’ve got a little Gables theme going this week.

So without further ado, I present to you 315 Viscaya Avenue.  Before I tell you about it, let’s check out some more photos, shall we?  I think they speak for themselves:

Wouldn’t you agree that this home just exudes charm?!  Listed for $498,000, it has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 1,450 square feet and a 5,000 square foot lot.  From the ivy-covered arched entrance to the Spanish tile and gleaming hardwood floors, this Old Spanish cottage is the perfect starter home for a young couple or a new home for empty-nesters looking to downsize.

According to the listing, the home, which was built in 1926, features a glassed-in front porch which the current owner uses as a foyer and library, a fireplace in the living room, a formal dining room and an updated kitchen with stainless steel appliances.  The backyard is fenced, and lush foliage and palm trees provide great privacy.  The home also has a carport and plenty of street parking, and all furniture is also for sale.

I just love all the unique details of this bright home, from the large windows flanking the front door, to the brick paved front walkway, to the large wrought-iron gate…plus, I’m a total sucker for ivy.  Check out all of the photos below and let me know – what do you think of this property?

    First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question
    which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your mind prior to writing. I’ve had a hard time clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing however
    it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any recommendations or tips? Many thanks!
