I just listed this exquisite family home in the highly desired Ponce/Davis neighborhood. One of the best features of this property is its super private location, as it is tucked away on a lush, quiet cul-de-sac with only 3 neighboring homes. In fact, there’s a good chance you’ll miss the street at least once or twice while trying to find it!   Built in 2008, this bright and beautiful two-story home has been impeccably maintained and feels like new. The home boasts superb design and high-end detailed finishes, and includes 7 bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and 5,902 square feet of living space.  It has a wonderful floor plan with a formal living room, family room, dining room, chef’s kitchen, guest bedroom, maid’s room, laundry room, powder room and office on the first floor; and four bedrooms in addition to the master suite on the second floor. The master suite has a gracious entryway with a kitchenette, a spacious sitting room, his and hers walk-in closets, and a spa-like carrara marble master bath.

This spectacular property sits on a lushly landscaped lot with 15,220 square feet and features a sparkling pool and a large roofed patio, perfect for outdoor entertaining.  There is also a full cabana bath, a fabulous summer kitchen with built-in BBQ, and a large custom orchid house with an irrigation system.

Other features of the home include:

  • high volume ceilings
  • two-car garage and large driveway with ample parking
  • foyer entry with large glass doors
  • beautiful limestone floors on the first floor and wood floors on the second floor
  • high impact windows and doors throughout the home

Just Sold: Stunning Center Grove Townhouse Remodel

3153 Peachy St, Miami, FL 33133
2 beds/2.5 baths | 1,700 sq ft | built in 1991 | sold for $679,000

Every now and then a very special home hits the market and people go berserk over it – 3153 Peachy St. happened to be one of those properties!  Within three days of this property coming to market, the seller had FIVE offers, at least one of which was above asking price (according to the listing agent)! I am thrilled to say that I represented the lucky buyers who snagged the property and just closed on this gorgeous home!

This townhouse is located in Center Grove and is tucked away in a very quiet, nearly hidden gated community of 18 townhouses called Arboretum in the Grove. The community is incredibly charming and has a slightly European feel to it.  This particular townhouse originally had 3 bedrooms but a prior owner converted it to 2 bedrooms to create a large master suite and bath (there is a screened-in patio on the ground level that could potentially be enclosed to create an additional bedroom, office or playroom should the new owners so desire).

The home has 1,700 square feet of living space and was completely remodeled to create a spacious open floor plan on the first floor.  The extensive renovations include a stunning, sleek and modern kitchen complete with Mia Cucina cabinets, quartz countertops, and stainless steel appliances;  modern bathrooms with top-of-the-line fixtures and vanities; hurricane impact glass windows and doors; a modern, glass-framed staircase; and hardwood floors throughout. Additionally, the roof and air conditioner were recently replaced, so the home is move-in ready!

Other special features about this property include an air conditioned one-car garage with tons of extra storage, an adorable outdoor patio with gorgeous landscaping and a tranquil water feature, and a large terrace off of the master on the second level.

Okay, enough talking – let’s get to the good stuff – check out all the drool-worthy photos below! And a BIG congrats to the buyers and sellers on closing this fantastic transaction!

Spotlight on Arbor: Coconut Grove’s Newest Boutique Condo Project


3034 Oak Ave | Miami, FL 33133

Have you heard? There’s a new boutique condo building coming to Center Grove and from the looks of it, it will have no problem fitting in. Arbor describes itself as “52 residences in Coconut Grove inspired by eco-living, good living and everything in between.” Inspired by the Grove’s lush canopy of trees, natural beauty and laid-back pace, Arbor’s high ceilings, private gardens and floor to ceiling windows offer a natural retreat from the daily grind.  With only five floors, the building nestles discreetly among the leafy streets of Coconut Grove.


Developed by Urban Atlantic Group and Oak Ventures, Arbor will be situated just north of Cocowalk at 3034 Oak Avenue.  Behar Font & Partners is the architect behind Arbor’s design, which it describes as “practically proportioned both inside and out…a welcome contrast to many of the large-scale, statement developments that have become the norm.”

I recently had the opportunity to meet with Arbor’s developer and sales team to get the full scoop on the project, and I can’t wait to watch it all unfold.  Sales have already launched and groundbreaking is expected in about three months.

Read on for more details on the project and photos from the sales gallery.  For more information on Arbor, contact me directly at 305.799.2124 or lrubens@bhsusa.com.
