Pair of New Construction Townhouses in Center Grove Sell for $780,000 Each

3127-3129 Matilda Street | Miami, FL 33133

Last December I wrote about a pair of new construction townhouses that were under contract on Matilda Street in Center Grove.  The asking price for each townhouse was $795,900, and both units have now sold for $780,000 ($355/sf) a piece.

The townhouses have 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,200 square feet of living space.  Each unit has a carport, a backyard patio with a pool, and a rooftop terrace.   Located on Matilda St. between Shipping and Day Ave., the new owners are just a quick walk to Cocowalk and Downtown Coconut Grove.

New construction properties like these in Center Grove are few and far between, and many of them sell before the developer even breaks ground.  Contact me today to find out about other new construction opportunities in the Grove at 305.799.2124 or

Center Grove Townhouse Listed for $1.175M

3181 Oak Ave., Miami, FL 33133
4 beds/3.5 baths | 3,092 sf | built in 2007 | asking price $1,175,000

At the end of December, I highlighted the priciest Center Grove townhouse sale in 2016 in this post.  The property address was 3183 Oak Ave., and the home sold for $1,150,000 ($385/sf).  Originally built in 2007, the home was recently completely remodeled with gorgeous, top of the line finishes.

Earlier this month, the adjacent townhouse at 3181 Oak Ave. was listed for sale asking $1,175,000 ($380/sf).  The listing description says that the home was completely redone in 2014 and features impact windows throughout, marble floors, plantation shutters, and an oversized kitchen with wood cabinets and stainless steel appliances opening to the family room.  The property is listed with Ashley Cusack of EWM Realty International, who also listed the neighboring property at 3183 Oak Ave.

These townhouses are quite larger than others in the neighborhood with approximately 3,000 square feet of living space and a 4 bedroom floor plan.  They have a two-car garage, loads of closet space and an open kitchen/living/dining layout on the first floor.

Echo Brickell Topping Off!

Echo Brickell
1451 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33131

You may recall this post from nearly two years ago where I first mentioned the ultra-luxury new construction residential tower that is ECHO Brickell.  Well, time flies and this week it’s being reported that they are topping off the building at 57 stories.  In fact, you can watch it for yourself from Echo’s live camera feed on their website, here.  Pretty wild!

To refresh your memory, Echo is situated on the east side of Brickell Avenue, directly adjacent to the Four Seasons (see top image).  Developed by  Property Markets Group (PMG), Echo Brickell is a boutique luxury development with 180 units and 57 stories.  It features conceptual design by world-renowned architect Carlos Ott and interior design by yoo Studio.

Although the building is more than 90% sold out, there are a handful of penthouses remaining, including the $42 million Carlos Ott penthouse.  Other purchase opportunities in the building start at $2 million, with floor plans consisting of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom layouts.

One of the most unique features of Echo is that all units will be delivered “furniture ready” – completely finished!  This is a major difference from the standard “designer ready” model of other buildings where units are delivered with kitchens, baths, and bathroom floors, but are otherwise raw and require finishing, from lighting to paint to baseboards and floors.

Check out the stunning images below to get a feel for Echo’s unique aesthetic and luxurious finishes.  For more information about purchase opportunities at Echo, contact me directly at or 305.799.2124.










Spotlight on 3183 Oak Ave: Highest Priced Sale in Center Grove in 2016


3183 Oak Ave, Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/3.5 baths | 2,987 sf | built in 2007 | sold for $1,150,000 on 10/27/16

With the new year just on the horizon, I wanted to take a moment to highlight the priciest sale (as per MLS data) in Center Coconut Grove in 2016 to date. This two-story home sits at 3183 Oak Avenue, just off of McDonald St. The property was originally listed for sale in June 2016 asking $1,225,000.  The price was dropped to $1,195,000 at the end of August, and it sold on October 26, 2016 for $1,150,000 ($385/sf).

The home was originally constructed in 2007 as a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom townhouse, but the seller completely renovated it, and in the process he removed one of the bedrooms in order to construct a large master suite with a spa-like bath and an enormous closet.

The renovations are simply stunning – I toured this house several times and it truly feels like you are walking through a Restoration Hardware catalog.  Just check out these photos I snapped of the master bath (shower envy, anyone?):

Other improvements include a GORGEOUS kitchen with loads of counter space, Italian porcelain floors, statement walls with reclaimed wood from New England, beautiful light fixtures, plantation shutters in all bedrooms, recessed lighting, and a spacious laundry room.  The home also features impact glass windows, a two car garage, a zen-like backyard with a pool and Chicago brick patio, and balconies off the master suite and one of the guestrooms. For more photos of this drool-worthy property, check out the virtual tour here.

FUN FACT: My sale at 3167 Gifford Lane in September was the second highest priced sale in the neighborhood in 2016.  There is a handful of new construction properties that will be completed in Center Grove in 2017, and many of them have already sold!
