For this week’s installment of Under $500k, I bring you 1245 Ortega Avenue, a charming home in the highly sought-after North Coral Gables neighborhood. This home was originally listed for $585,000 in July 2013, but was dropped to $499,000 just last week.
The home, which was built in 1960, is located on a quiet, tree-lined street on a corner lot, which is a huge plus for a young family or a couple looking to start a family. According to the listing, the property features hard wood floors throughout, great mill work, recessed lighting, an oversized garage, large closets, an en-suite master bath with double shower heads, hurricane shutters, a new roof, and a new air conditioner.
The photos show a sparkling kitchen with a modern, stainless steel range hood and built-in wine refrigerator. Swap out the white refrigerator for a stainless steel sub-zero and this kitchen would really shine! Although the second bathroom looks a bit outdated, a little paint in a modern color and a chic shower curtain would spruce it up until you’re ready to remodel it.
Finally, the property features great curb appeal with beautiful palm trees lining the entrance to the home, as well as a lush green lot and hedges for privacy. Welcome home!
