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 Sold: Three Unique Townhouses in Coconut Grove!


The first half of 2018 has proven to be busier than ever! Back in February, I sold my fabulous listing at 3373 Day Ave for above list price after a bidding war ensued!  And just last week, two of my clients closed on their Coconut Grove townhouses: my seller closed on the sale of her home in the beautiful gated community, Grove Walk Townhomes, at 3135 Gifford Lane (the highest sale in the community to date!); and my buyers closed on the purchase of their gorgeous new home at 3035 Orange Street.  Congratulations to all!

Just Sold: New Construction Townhouse Resale in Center Grove


3167 Gifford Lane, Miami, FL 33133
3 beds/4 full baths | 2,491 sf | built in December 2015 | sold for $963,000

Congratulations to my buyer who just closed on this gorgeous property in Center Coconut Grove! While technically this was a resale, the property is not even one year old and the seller had only lived in the home for a handful of months.  It is a larger townhouse with 3 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and almost 2,500 square feet of living space.  This was an off-market sale which closed for $963,000 ($387/sf).

Similar to other new construction homes in the neighborhood, this townhouse is ultra-modern and comes with all of the incredible bells and whistles of buying new construction today (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 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.  It’s not easy to find a new construction property like this in Coconut Grove for under $1 million these days. Even though this property was never listed on the MLS, I live and work in the Grove and found out about this opportunity early on.  I was able to get my client in the door and negotiate a deal for him very quickly, and now he’s the lucky new owner!

If you are interested in buying or selling a home like this in Coconut Grove or the surrounding neighborhoods, I would love the opportunity to work with you! Call or email me at any time at 305-799-2124 or lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com.
