Just Rented in Edgewater: Bay House #2102

600 NE 27 St. #2102, Miami, FL 33137
3 beds/3 full baths | 1,601 sf | built in 2015 | rented for $3,800/month

Congrats to my {newly engaged!} clients on scoring this gorgeous condo at Bay House in Edgewater.  This unit has 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, and a large floor plan with 1,601 square feet of living space.  One of the best parts about the unit is that it is BRAND NEW and never lived in (the building was completed in 2015).  Additionally, all of the units in the building are “flow through” meaning each residence has a sweeping, unobstructed view of the bay.  Other features include porcelain floors, fully built out closets, floor-to-ceiling windows, an oversized terrace, and a sparkling kitchen with quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and Italian cabinetry.

Amenities at Bay House include an expansive pool deck with day beds, business center, state-of-the-art fitness center, 24-hour valet parking & security, children’s play room, and club room.  Located at 27th and Biscayne, Bay House residents can easily access the Design District, Museum Park, Bayfront Park, PAMM, American Airlines Arena,  Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts, Brickell and Downtown Miami.  The location is also a quick drive to the Miami International Airport, the Port of Miami, and Miami Beach.

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.

Take a look at some of the photos of 3181 Oak Ave., below, or check out the full photo tour here.  For more information on this property or to schedule a private showing, contact me directly at 305.799.2124 or lrubens@bhsusa.com

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 lrubens@bhsusa.com or 305.799.2124.

58464f70274d7dd29f9c9ef87145fa9d61a293ab6261 3127-3129 Matilda St, Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/2.5 baths | Offered at $795,900

I’ve been watching this pretty pair of townhouses go up just around the corner from my street in Center Grove, and they look like they’re nearly done. I spoke to the developer’s agent today who confirmed that both units are under contract.  The developer, Jemko Development Corp., is no stranger to Center Grove, having completed four gorgeous townhouses at 3046-3052 Day Ave. in 2015, as well as a portfolio of other projects in the Grove.

These particular townhouses have 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a little over 2,000 square feet of living space.  The asking price for each unit is $795,900, which would come out to under $400/sf (assuming the units are 2,000 sf or larger).  Each unit has a carport, a backyard patio with a pool, and a rooftop terrace.

Scroll down to view the floor plans, and check back in a few weeks for an update on the sales prices once these units close.

3 bedrooms/2.5 bathrooms | 1,470 sf | built in 1993 | sold for $479,550

Congrats to my buyer on closing on this fabulous townhouse in Center Coconut Grove! This bright, 3 bedroom corner unit sold for under $500,000 which is quite rare to find in the neighborhood these days. The property is located on Mary Street in the quiet gated community of Grove Cove, which consists of 9 townhouses.

In addition to 3 bedrooms, the home has 2 full baths upstairs and a half bath on the main floor, as well as an updated kitchen, a one car garage and a lovely, landscaped backyard patio.  Although the property has less than 2,000 square feet of living space, it has vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan, which makes it feel larger than it is.  The home has tile floors downstairs and carpet in the bedrooms, and there are beautiful brick pavers throughout the community and around the front and back of the property.
