Property description

The charm of the art deco era with modern updates, located in the Little Gables neighborhood, surrounded by Coral Gables. Approximately 1300 SF includes bedroom with queen bed and private bath, second bedroom with either king bed or two twins, second bath with shower/tub, open living/dining and kitchen area, lap pool, two decks, with BBQ that is covered and one with retractable awning, table and chairs for outside dining - there is also a fireplace and an upright piano in the living area for those who are musically inclined!

IMPORTANT: My husband and I reside in the upstairs apartment, which has a separate entrance. Please note that we will not use the backyard area/BBQ/pool during your stay. We have a boxer dog and a cat that you will probably never see nor hear (unless we happen to be walking the dog around the block as you come in or out of the main house!), however if you have dog or cat allergies, this is probably not the right property for you! Otherwise, we will make sure you feel like you are completely on your own, unless you need us for anything, of course, in which case we can give you immediate assistance.

Car: Recommended

Little Gables is less than 5 miles from the Miami International airport, and only a 5-minute drive to downtown Coral Gables, offering a huge selection of restaurants, bars and shopping. Key Biscayne is about a 20-minute drive, offering beaches (Crandon Park, Bill Baggs State Park, Virginia Key), water sports, catamaran and jet ski rentals and the Miami Sea Aquarium. We are also about a 25-minute drive from South Miami Beach.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My husband and I met in Miami - a likely place, I think, for a relationship to blossom between a Chilean and the daughter of a Californian and an Ohian couple who raised their family in Puerto Rico, Costa Rica and Colombia. We have lived very, very happily in our Little Gables home for 10 years, adding special touches, large and small, to our surroundings on a regular basis to make it the oasis it is now.

Why the Owner Chose Miami, FL, USA:
This home was originally a 2-bedroom, 1-bath starter home with original art deco architecture from the 1940s. When expanding and updating our home, we concentrated our efforts in maintaining its original charm and following the architectural style in the newly constructed expansion. The end result provides a retro-modern open feel with the conveniences of today's lifestyle.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This home is like a small world unto itself, an oasis in the middle of all Miami has to offer; very private but still minutes away from shopping and entertainment. We hope you will enjoy, as we have, cocktail hours by the pool, listening to the birds in the morning or taking an afternoon nap in the hammock.
