Anddddd I’m back! Last week was rough, as I picked up a miserable germ while traveling over Thanksgiving weekend. Unfortunately, that meant no Art Basel for me this year. Oh well, there’s always next year, right? At least I got to avoid the nightmare traffic that ensued…
Luckily, I’m feeling much better this week and am happy to show you this gorgeous, remodeled gem in the Shenandoah/Coral Way neighborhood.
I found this description of Shenandoah on Metro Atlantic, which perfectly describes the neighborhood: “Shenandoah is a beautiful, historically-rich neighborhood located just south of Little Havana and west of Downtown Miami. The neighborhood roughly spans from SW 8th Street (Calle Ocho) to the north to Coral Way to the south, between SW 27th Avenue and SW 12th Avenue. The neighborhood is made up almost entirely of historic single-family homes and duplexes. Aside from the (surprisingly) well maintained historic homes in the neighborhood, the neighborhood is also conveniently located between two major commercial centers – Miracle Mile and Downtown/Brickell…The neighborhood is safe and walkable. Despite being in the center of the city, is very quiet and peaceful. Walking around Shenandoah you’ll notice a lot of historic architectural gems…The neighborhood also has a strong feeling of community. The public schools, parks and library in the neighborhood are easily walkable from the homes in the area. Walking around really is pleasant.”
The home I’m featuring is located at 1831 SW 16 Avenue and is offered at $450,000. It has 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and almost 1,900 square feet of living space. The home was originally built in 1938, but was recently given a complete face-lift. According to the listing, the updates include: a new kitchen with new appliances (although the appliances are not pictured in the photograph, above), new A/Cs, new bathrooms, re-stained hardwood floors, and hurricane-impact windows and doors throughout. Additionally, the home features a covered patio perfect for entertaining, a large lot with mature trees, and great curb appeal with a brick-paved path and palm trees fanning the front of the home.
I’m loving the modern kitchen and the stained hardwood floors. The bathrooms are sleek and polished, and it looks like there might be enough room to put in a pool in the backyard. Not bad for $450k!
