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.

Center Coconut Grove Townhouse Sells for $1,072,000

A2093616_101_123122 Virginia Street, Miami, FL 33133
4 bedrooms/3 bathrooms | 3,107sf | Built in 2001 | Sold for $1,072,000

A freestanding “mini mansion” in Center Grove closed on August 24, 2015 for $1,072,000 ($345/sf).  The property was originally listed at the end of March 2015 for $1,350,000, and had price reductions in April and May, to $1,190,000 and $1,149,000 respectively.   The listing agent was Berk Boge of Miami Real Estate Company.

According to the MLS listing, the property  was built in 2001 by “Center Grove’s most experienced developer for his own family.”  The home is larger than most in the neighborhood, complete with 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 3,100+ square feet of living space.  It is also a unique property in that it is freestanding (i.e. shares no walls or roof with a neighboring home, which is the norm in the neighborhood).

The listing further provides that the home features marble and wood floors throughout,  20+ feet ceilings in the foyer and formal living room, formal dining, open kitchen with snack counter and large family room.  The property also has a covered, private backyard patio with an oversized pool and summer kitchen, and a two car garage that has been converted into a fifth bedroom.

While this was the priciest townhouse sale in Center Grove over the last 12 months based on sales price (as per the MLS data), its sales price per square foot ($345) is just slightly above the average range for the neighborhood.  Situated on Virginia St. just off of Shipping Ave., the property has an ideal location just walking distance to Blanche Park dog and kiddie park and Coco Walk.

Check out more photos of the property below, or click here for a virtual tour.  For more information on this sale or other properties in the Grove and surrounding neighborhoods, contact me directly at lindsayrubens@avatarflorida.com or 305.799.2124.
