Congratulations to my buyer who just closed on this stunning condominium at the exclusive Ritz-Carlton Residences in Coconut Grove!  Tucked away in the heart of Coconut Grove just off of 27th Ave. and Bayshore Drive, the property consists of 2 towers – one for hotel guests, another for residents.

This particular unit features a split floor plan with 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a half bath and 1,666 square feet of living space.  It was listed with Helen (Jeanne) Nicastri of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate.  The listing price was $950,000 and the property sold for $900,000 ($540/sf).  The unit has sparkling marble floors throughout, an open concept kitchen-dining-living room space, and an oversize balcony with beautiful views of Biscayne Bay, Downtown Miami, and the surrounding Coconut Grove neighborhood.  The sellers had updated the property with recessed lighting, fine wood cabinetry with a wet bar and wine refrigerator in the living room, as well as cabinetry in the second bedroom.

One of the best features of the unit is the spacious master suite, which has two large walk-in closets and a gorgeous marble bathroom with a glass shower and separate roman tub.  Take a look at all of the photos below!  And as always, contact me directly at 305-799-2124 or lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com for more info on buying or selling a unit at the Ritz-Carlton Residences or the surrounding neighborhoods.

2,274 sf | 3 beds/2.5 baths | built in 2007 | sold for $700,000

Congratulations to my buyers who just closed on this gorgeous townhouse in center Coconut Grove! This was a very special transaction – not only did it mark my clients’ first home purchase, but it is also the home where they will raise their first child, a beautiful baby girl who was born only a few weeks before the closing!

The townhouse is located on a quiet cul-de-sac in center Coconut Grove, just steps to Coco Walk, parks and Coconut Grove Elementary.  It is a newer townhouse built in 2007, and has 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and nearly 2,300 square feet of living space.  The asking price was $750,000 and it sold for $700,000 ($308/sf).

The home featured hurricane impact windows and doors, a bright kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, updated lighting, speakers and security cameras, plantation shutters, crown molding throughout, a 1 car garage, and a backyard with heated pool, covered patio and wet bar.  The oversized master bedroom has two large walk-in closets with built-ins and french doors that open to a large, private terrace, and the master bath is complete with sparkling marble, double sinks, and a glass shower and jacuzzi tub.  The downstairs features polished marble floors, while the upstairs bedrooms, hallway and staircase have beautiful hardwood.

One of my favorite parts about the home is the beautiful, ivy-covered facade and the surrounding lush foliage and bougainvillea.  It has a very tropical feel, unique to the Grove.

The Roads is a quiet little neighborhood just west of Brickell, known for its tree-covered streets and beautiful, historic homes.  It has become increasingly coveted in recent years for young families and professionals who desire a suburban feel but love the proximity to Downtown Miami and Brickell.  The neighborhood’s name comes from the fact that it is located off of the Miami street grid, so all of the streets are named “roads” instead of streets or avenues.  See the highlighted map below.

Paramount Bay is a luxury, waterfront building located in the Edgewater neighborhood, just north of Downtown Miami.   Completed in 2011, Paramount Bay was developed by Royal Palm Communities and designed by world-renowned architectural firm, Arquitectonica.  The building is all-glass and has 47-stories with 346 units.

Residents love Paramount Bay for its beautiful design (the common areas were designed by Lenny Kravitz!), amazing amenities, first class service, and endless water views.  But one of the best features of Paramount Bay is its location.  Situated at 20th St. and N. Bayshore Drive, the building is positioned between entrances to I-195 and I-395, providing easy access to Miami Beach and the Miami Airport.  It’s also just minutes from Downtown Miami, Midtown Miami, Wynwood and the Design District.  If you’re a visual person like me, check out the map below (the star marks Paramount Bay).


Take a look at all of the other sales in the building since April 2014, below.  Thinking about buying or selling a condo at Paramount Bay or the surrounding neighborhoods?  Contact me today for a confidential discussion at 305-799-2124 or lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com
