1 bedroom/1.5 baths | 963 sf of living space | Offered for rent at $2,250/month

You may recall that I listed this gorgeous unit in 1060 Brickell for rent earlier this month.  The owners have decided to reduce the asking price from $2,350 to $2,250, as they are motivated and prepared to rent it quickly.  This is a very competitive price for a unit in the “05” line, as others have been renting for $2,300-$2,350.  With 963 square feet, this is the largest 1 bedroom unit with a water view that is currently available in the building.  The unit is vacant and ready for immediate occupancy – contact me before it’s gone!

Just Listed: Beautiful and Bright 1 Bed/1.5 Bath Unit in 1060 Brickell

1060 Brickell Ave. #2505
1 bedroom/1.5 baths | 963 sf of living space | Offered for rent at $2,350/month

I just listed this gorgeous 1 bedroom/1.5 bathroom rental in 1060 Brickell!   This unit is located in the “05 line” on the 25th floor, which overlooks Brickell Ave. and boasts beautiful water views.  It is one of the largest 1-bedroom floor plans in the building and has 963 square feet of living space.  The unit is being offered at $2,350 per month.

The unit is in impeccable condition and includes the following features:

  • Sparkling white porcelain tile floors throughout the living areas and bedroom, and marble floors in the bathrooms.
  • Hurricane impact glass windows and doors.
  • Large terrace with plenty of room for al-fresco dining, and the balcony floor is also tiled.
  • The interior layout includes a dining area off of the kitchen as well as a powder room for your guests.
  • Spacious living room has sheer shades on the sliding glass doors, and is large enough for a designated office area.
  • Kitchen has generous counter space and features stainless steel Bosch appliances, granite countertops, and European cabinets, as well as a laundry closet with stackable washer/dryer and extra storage.
  • Master bedroom has a nice-sized walk-in closet with shelving as well as custom blackout shades.
  • Master bathroom has marble floors and countertops, a marble-tiled shower wall, and the shower has a tub with a glass door enclosure.
  • Rental payment includes 1 assigned parking space in the garage, water/sewer and garbage, as well as basic cable.

Although I may be biased because I lived in the building for 3 years, 1060 Brickell is my favorite building in Brickell! It’s a newer building, completed in 2008, and consists of two towers (1050 and 1060), for a total of 570 units. The building has a beautiful pool and gym, complete with a yoga/aerobics room, steam rooms, showers and locker rooms. Unique amenities include a virtual golf room featuring an indoor golf simulator, Wine/Cigar lounge outfitted with temperature-controlled wine and storage cabinets and personal humidors for cigars, and a game room with a billiards table. The building has 24 hour doorman security, 24 hour valet parking, as well as ground-floor and mezzanine level retail and restaurants.  Best of all is the location – with Mary Brickell Village and the Metromover in your backyard, you can leave your car in the garage all weekend – no driving necessary!

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.

Just Rented with Option to Buy: Coconut Grove Townhouse


3103 Oak Ave., Coconut Grove, FL 33133
3 beds/2.5 baths | 2,200 sf | built in 2004 | rented for $3,800/month

You may recall that I recently listed this townhouse in Center Coconut Grove, and I’m pleased to inform you that the property just closed!  Although the property was originally listed for sale, the owners ultimately decided to also list it for rent due to the short time frame in which they were closing on their new home.  Their hope was that this would increase the number of prospects for the property and thus provide them with the cash they needed for their new purchase.  The perfect solution? A lease with an option to buy!  We ended up finding a couple that was in the process of selling their own home and looking to relocate to the Grove.  They needed to be out of their house quickly, but they weren’t prepared to buy a new house in that short amount of time.  As a result, they entered into a lease for $3,800/month and paid a non-refundable deposit for an option to buy the house within a certain number of months and at an agreed-upon price (I cannot disclose the sales price until the property closes, assuming the renters exercise the option to buy).  This type of transaction is not all that common, but in this case, it was an ideal arrangement for all of the parties!

If you are interested in buying or selling a home, you need an experienced Realtor that thinks outside the box and can help you navigate through the tricky terrain of home buying and selling.  I am your Coconut Grove resident specialist and I also work in the surrounding neighborhoods including Pinecrest, Coral Gables, South Miami, Brickell/Downtown Miami and Miami Beach.  I would love the opportunity to work with you – contact me today at 305.799.2124 or lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com for a confidential discussion about buying or selling a home in Miami!
