A gated enclave not to be missed, but easily out of sight as one of the best kept real estate secrets ….the Abitare is my featured gated Coconut Grove community this week as I successfully closed 3495 Main Highway #21. I represented the buyer and it was a pleasure working with the listing agent, Marilda Fernandez at Grove Properties to ensure the success of this closed transaction just a few days ago.

Reasons for this spotlight include its prime location just steps away from Coconut Grove’s village center and the loveliness of the townhomes within that are protected by 24/7 guard gate and a dense tree canopy overhead. Residences are described as rustic and yet contemporary, a favorite style of mine. Each property has an open floor plan with large windows that fill spaces with light. Owners in this waterfront community have the opportunity to utilize private boat dock slips and they can take advantage of the community pool; both of which facilitate access to classic South Florida past times. The hidden gem with just 21 townhomes total has a historically low turnover rate due to popularity of its location and quality. The last wave of sales occurred in 2012.

You still have a chance to purchase as currently there are three other townhomes on the market and two both recently renovated.  3117 Via Abitare Way #10 is listed for $1,648,800. The two bedroom, two bathroom townhouse was completely remodeled in 2013. The contemporary rustic home with two stories has vaulted ceilings, a large master suite, spacious family room, and working fireplace. The focus is on the outdoor living spaces which soak up the South Florida environment. The second villa on the market is 3495 Main Highway #13 listed for $1,350,000.  Also remodeled and furnished with two bedrooms and two bathrooms it is in walking distance to the best schools including Ransom Everglades, St. Stephen’s, Carrollton, and St. Hugh. The large, bright townhome is also modern and has an open style with large wooden deck that includes an outdoor shower and access to a private rooftop deck.  3179 Via Abitare Way #11 just hit the MLS and was a pocket listing with the neighboring agent and is a larger three bedroom with a rooftop terrace that has views of the Bay.  The private elevator is adorned in copper created  by Kenneth Treister. It’s important that you work with an expert like myself to explore these fantastic residences. Reach out for private tours of all three Villas.
