3220 Matilda St., Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/3.5 baths | 3,300 sq ft | built in 2018 | sold for $1,265,890 on 11/9/18

Just drive around Coconut Grove and you’ll see it everywhere – bulldozers, front loaders, dump trucks and trenchers. New construction, whether you like it or not, remains alive and well in the Grove and prices are stronger than ever.

There were 2 notable new construction sales in Center Grove in November.  Pictured above is 3220 Matilda Street, which sold for $1,265,890 ($384/sf). The property has 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths and 3,300 square feet of living space. The developer is Drive Development, which currently has a number of ongoing and completed projects throughout the neighborhood (including my two new construction sales back in July). The home features a contemporary design and beautiful wood features which are in line with Drive’s other projects, including a floating frame which Drive describes as “simultaneously providing shelter from Miami’s summer rains and serving as a versatile wood-screen shading device system that offers tranquil tree top views.” Below are some renderings of the gorgeous interior design and finishes of the home.

Another mentionable sale was 3190 Lamb Court (a small cul-de-sac tucked off of McDonald St.), which sold for $1,285,000 ($453/sf). The home has 4 beds, 4 baths and 2,833 square feet of living space.  The property features a dramatic double-height entry with floating staircase,  Italian 48″X24″ porcelain tile flooring, a sleek Euro-style kitchen with high-gloss custom cabinetry, quartz countertops and Thermador appliances, including a 36” gas dual fuel range.  Other notable features include: LED lighting, Hikvision camera system and Sonos sound system. Finally, the property has a large roof-top terrace with artificial grass, and a backyard with private patio and pool. View the slideshow below for photos of the property.

Just Rented: Gorgeous Condo at Epic Residences

FullSizeRender_4200 Biscayne Blvd. Way #3905, Miami, FL 33131
1 bedroom/1.5 bathrooms | 950 sq ft | Built in 2008 | Rented for $3,100/month

I just rented this stunning unit at Epic Residences in Downtown Miami.   Epic is a luxury hotel and condo building with 54 stories and 342 units, located just over the bridge that connects Brickell and Downtown Miami.  Epic offers some of the finest amenities and restaurants in Miami, including an Exhale spa and the world-famous Zuma restaurant.

This particular unit was a large 1 bedroom floor plan with 1 full bathroom, a powder room, and 950 square feet of living space. The unit had beautiful finishes including Snaidero cabinetry, stainless steel Miele appliances,
his and her vessel sinks, a 72” x 60” tub/shower, TOTO toilets and bidet, and spacious walk-in closets.  It had sparkling marble floors, custom window shades, an oversize balcony, and of course, that stunning view of Biscayne Bay.   The unit rented for $3,100/month.

My clients had been renting in the building for the last two years and needed to move because their unit was being sold.  They love living at Epic and could not imagine moving elsewhere, a sentiment that seems to be shared with the other residents in the building.

New Construction Sells in West Coconut Grove for $700,000+

A2074641_201_123035 Elizabeth St. #3037, Coconut Grove, FL 33133
3 beds/3 baths | 2,300 sf | built in 2015 | sold for $729,000 ($317/sf) on 5/29/15

If you’ve been following this blog for some time, you may recall my West Coconut Grove Market Update from about six months back.  At that time, new construction sales had yet to break $700k (as per MLS data), unlike their counterparts in Center Grove which were selling at prices well above that number.  Now, we’re seeing sales in the West Grove reaching $707,000 and $729,000, and a handful of properties with asking prices above $700k are currently pending.  These sales are also notable because they reached $307/sf and $317/sf, whereas the average sales price per square foot in the neighborhood is generally in the $100-$200 range.

If the above photo looks familiar, that’s because you’ve seen me post about other notable sales from this particular developer over the past year.  It should come as no surprise then that both of these $700,000+ sales were from the very same developer.  This new construction model has cropped up all over the Grove, from Orange Street to McDonald to Day Avenue and now Elizabeth Street.  A property on Elizabeth just closed for $729,000 ($317/sf), and a property on Day closed for $707,000 ($307/sf), thus raising the bar (and property values) in the West Grove.  The listing agent for both sales was Silvia Boschetti with BH Realty, LLC.     I have toured these properties multiple times and can attest to their high end designer finishes and open floor plan, ultra-modern fixtures, floor-to-ceiling impact glass, fenced-in backyard with pool, and 950 square foot private rooftop terrace (see photos below).

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

balconyleft_1200
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!
