Every now and then I come across some of the neatest, most private properties in Miami and I am blown away. I am so fortunate to have just listed one of these hidden jewels, and I can’t wait to share it with you! This new listing is an escape from the hustle bustle of Miami – a property covered in rare tree species, outrageous blooming orchids, expansive gardens and a quiet nook in the midst of it all. The home on the property has been historically designated and features so many neat details and its authenticity makes it so special.
I am holding the home open today from 11:30 – 2:00 and encourage you all to come experience this oasis for yourselves! Enjoy a special catered lunch from Whisk, and drop your name in a bowl to receive a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to Whisk!
The historically designated Van Cooten Bungalow has been carefully restored and seamlessly updated all the while preserving the original design and period charm. Built in 1923, this one and a half story coral rock Craftsman delights with original details such as broad open porches, wood-beams, Dade County pine floors and a gorgeous coral rock wood-burning fireplace. Completely updated kitchen with custom oak cabinetry, stainless-steel appliances and light-flooded breakfast nook; enormous Formal Dining room with seating for 10; and renovated master bathroom with double sinks, bidet and outdoor rain shower.
Be immediately transported upon entering the idyllic property set on two beautifully landscaped lots. Meander along stone pathways that wind through magical gardens teeming with rare specimen trees, waterfalls, ponds and shade house. An outdoor Jacuzzi is perched atop a coral rock storage house camouflaged beautifully into its surroundings by flowing vines and tropical orchids. Most recent updates include partial impact windows, brand new A/C, water heater, septic tank and drain field as well as buried telephone and power lines.
This is an extremely rare, completely one-of-a-kind property; AN ABSOLUTE TREASURE!
