You all know how much I love Merrick’s Villages – I have written about many of them in the past and I think they are some of the neatest landmarks in Coral Gables. Any realtor is excited to get listings in these Villages, with such a rich history attached to them. I am extremely honored to share with you my newest listing today; the anchor home in the French Country Village. It is truly one of the most special homes on the market right now!
The homes in the French Country Village were inspired by country farmhouse estates and chateauxs. They were all built in the country style with spacious yards and gardens. Steeply-pitched roofs adorn many of them in addition to their carved wood and wrought-iron balconies, red brick and tall ceilings. Located on the 500 block of Hardee Road, they are hard to miss!
My new listing is located at 500 Hardee Road and this spectacular 1925 home has been exquisitely renovated. The home offers ample living spaces downstairs with an oversized formal living room with high ceilings, beautiful fireplace & crown molding, a formal dining room fit for a king, family room with French doors opening to the pool, separate office or den area, and a gourmet kitchen beautifully updated with stainless appliances & Carara marble counters. You can sense the history of this home as you walk through the arched doorways and hallways.
Four bedrooms are located up the main staircase, all with new bathrooms. A fifth bedroom is up a separate staircase, serving nicely as a maid’s room or separate guest quarters. The home also includes a 2-car garage, saline heated swimming pool, impact doors and windows, and so much more. It is being offered at $1,995,000.
