I Want This $1.4M Mediterranean Home in Coconut Grove

Historic Coconut Grove is filled with winding tree-lined streets with names like Tigertail, Hilola, Nocatee and Onaway. Brimming with character, it's quality homes are built to scale with the mature trees found throughout and the massive native landscaping that gives the area its charm.

It's hard to believe that the quaint neighborhood is a stone's throw away from thriving Downtown Miami, chic Coral Gables and the interstate. Coconut Grove also has plenty of restaurants, bars and shopping that makes staying close by just as enjoyable as venturing away. And this two-story classic Mediterranean beauty on sale for $1.49 million is one of those reasons.

The 3,916-square-foot, 4-bed, 3-bath home has 22-foot ceilings. The living room features West-Indies-inspired fans that give the spacious room an island feel. The many French doors let in generous light, also thanks to high-set windows and light-colored marble floors. The marble floors make another appearance in the formal dining room that leads into a spacious kitchen with sit-down island and granite countertops. More French doors lead out to the patio area from the kitchen where nice lighting over the island makes it an inviting place to dine and chat.

A uniquely carved entrance with scalloped edging continues the Mediterranean theme and leads from the dining room to a large living room with French windows filtering in plenty of sunshine. A claw-footed tub is the star in the spacious master bathroom that features two separate vanity areas with tons of storage space within the elegant dark-wood cabinets and drawers. This is a great bathroom for couples getting ready for work in the morning or for a night out on the town thanks to plenty of elbow room. A dramatic staircase with iron work railings leads to the second floor and outside are large, covered terraces that lead to the spacious heated pool and spa. It's also got a two-car garage.

How does the home compare to others in the surrounding neighborhood? At $382 per-square-foot, it's smack in the mid-range of four-bedroom homes in Coconut Grove, where home values are consistently competitive. And with such a prime location within the neighborhood, this house is a good buy.
