Just Rented for Asking Price: 3167 Gifford Lane, Coconut Grove

038-4311322-medium4x33167 Gifford Lane, Miami, FL 33133

Earlier this summer, I posted about this newer construction (2015) ultramodern townhouse that I had listed for rent in Center Coconut Grove.     You may recall that it is a nearly brand new, larger townhouse with 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and almost 2,500 square feet of living space.  It has all of the incredible bells and whistles that come with high-end new construction (impact glass throughout, sleek modern kitchen with white quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, recessed LED lighting, indoor/outdoor sound system, advanced security system with outdoor cameras, porcelain tile “wood look” floors throughout), as well as a large rooftop patio with wet bar, two A/C zones, and a spacious backyard with a heated saltwater pool.  We had a ton of interest right from the get-go, and within just a couple weeks we received a full priced offer for $6,200 per month!

This transaction is a perfect example of how an experienced agent who specializes in a particular neighborhood can make all the difference (and can usually help a seller or landlord make more money!).  When my client initially asked me how much he could get to rent out his home, I knew I would not find any comparable properties on the MLS that had recently rented.  Since I live and work in the Grove and know the market so intricately, I was well aware that my client’s property was super unique and incomparable to the mostly older townhouses that had been renting in the neighborhood for around $4,500/month give or take.  My client was elated when I told him that I truly believed his property was worth $6,000 – $6,500 per month, as it was more comparable to a new or completely renovated single family home in the North or South Grove.  After careful consideration he decided to list it for $6,200/month, and we were thrilled to receive a full price offer just a couple weeks later.  Imagine if my client had listed the property with another agent who works outside of the Grove – s/he would most likely have relied on the MLS comparables and suggested a list price of $1,000 – $2,000 less per month!

3167 Gifford Lane, Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/4 baths | 2,491 sq ft | Built in 2015 | Offered at $6,200/month

I just listed this fabulous “newer construction” (2015) ultramodern townhouse in Center Coconut Grove for rent. If it looks familiar, that’s because you may recall this post when I sold it to the owner last fall.  The owner is going to be traveling for the next year or so, and it’s now available to one lucky renter while he’s away!

This is a rare opportunity to rent a nearly brand new, larger townhouse with 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and almost 2,500 square feet of living space.  Similar to other new construction homes in the neighborhood, this townhouse comes with all of the incredible bells and whistles (think impact glass throughout, sleek kitchen with white quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances, recessed LED lighting, indoor/outdoor sound system, advanced security system with outdoor cameras, and porcelain tile “wood look” floors throughout).

This particular property is unique in that it has two A/C zones (one upstairs and one downstairs) as well as a gas range, gas water heater and gas dryer. Other notable features include 20-foot ceilings in the living room and dining room, a large rooftop patio with a wet bar, a spacious backyard with heated saltwater pool, 1 car garage with porcelain floors, a spacious built-out closet in the master suite and an enormous rainhead glass shower and soaking tub in the master bath.

And of course, one of the best parts about this property is its fabulous location in the heart of Center Grove.  This home is located on Gifford Lane, a quiet, tree-lined street just minutes from Cocowalk and Downtown Coconut Grove.

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

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.

Pair of New Construction Townhouses in Center Grove Sell for $780,000 Each

fullsizerender
3127-3129 Matilda Street | Miami, FL 33133

Last December I wrote about a pair of new construction townhouses that were under contract on Matilda Street in Center Grove.  The asking price for each townhouse was $795,900, and both units have now sold for $780,000 ($355/sf) a piece.

The townhouses have 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and 2,200 square feet of living space.  Each unit has a carport, a backyard patio with a pool, and a rooftop terrace.   Located on Matilda St. between Shipping and Day Ave., the new owners are just a quick walk to Cocowalk and Downtown Coconut Grove.

New construction properties like these in Center Grove are few and far between, and many of them sell before the developer even breaks ground.  Contact me today to find out about other new construction opportunities in the Grove at 305.799.2124 or lrubens@bhsusa.com.

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.
