Coconut Grove house description

Meet the Jenkins House. Architectural Gem in the heart of Coconut Grove, two bedrooms with classic furnishings, two king beds on the main level and bonus room with a classic twin bed on the lower level. Built by THE pre-eminent Miami mid-century modern (MiMo) architect Alfred Browning Parker for Gwendolyn Sue Jenkins in 1953, this home is in absolute original condition with modern technological upgrades, central Nest A/C, jacuzzi and landscaping. Newly restored and decorated by mid-century expert Regina O’Brien from Los Angeles, the house is furnished as it would be in 1958, with original 1950’s decorating, all in excellent condition, including the light fixtures, silverware and a mid-century Schwinn bicycle, stepping into this house is as it would have been. As if the house weren’t perfect enough, the previous owner is a noted landscape architect who poured his soul into the landscaping - the vertical landscape design lifts the horizontal house into the canopy to create your vintage nest.
