I’ve written in the past about all of George Merrick’s beautiful villages throughout Coral Gables. I have had numerous listings in these villages and always love selling a piece of history. Merrick planned a number of diverse villages throughout the city, one of which is the Chinese Village. Located on Riviera Drive just south of US1, this is one of the most unique villages because it stands out so much! Blue and yellow roofs adorn the homes, with red and yellow doors and very unique architecture.
There’s currently one house listed for sale in the Chinese Village – the first time any of these homes have been on the market in many years. Listed with Coldwell Banker, it’s a historically designated 5 bedroom/3.5 bath 2-story home with 2-car garage and a nice backyard. The Chinese details are found throughout from the intricately carved glass, to the unique staircase banister, to the fret work doors overlooking the backyard. It’s truly a special home! It’s currently pending sale but was listed in January for $899,000. Photos and property information courtesy of the MLS.
