                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1984

                      About the owner: I grew up in France where my first profession (ballerina) took me to different part of my country and Europe. Later I came to California where my children were born. During the 90's Nick and I lived both in Paris and Miami while he pursued his fashion photography career. When I first came to Miami I chose Coconut Grove as then it was the center of cultural activities and home of many artists.

                      Why the Owner Chose Coconut Grove:
                      This has been our home in this unique neighborhood for a long time. The children are gone and we would like to share it with guests on occasion allowing us to travel too.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Lots of character, authenticity yet close to everything in Miami.
