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.

4 beds | 3.5 baths | 2,940 sf | sold for $1,150,000

Congratulations to my buyers who recently closed on their gorgeous new construction homes in Center Coconut Grove! The two townhouses, located on Jackson Ave. and Shipping Ave., were designed and built by the same developer, Drive Development. The projects were truly a labor of love as both buyers worked tirelessly with the developer from start to finish to customize nearly every detail of the homes.

These townhouses are unlike any other property currently existing in Center Coconut Grove, from the extra large floor plans to the custom millwork, supreme finishes and high quality construction.  Scroll below to view all of the beautiful renderings and photos of these homes.

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

A10236237_101_12

Arbor
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.
