I Want This Renovated Miami Shores House, $1.45M

In the quiet neighborhood of Miami Shores, nestled in the mid to northern section of Miami-Dade County, the homes are pristine and well-kept and this $1.45 million renovated home at 309 99th Street is no exception. At 4,495 square feet, the 5-bedroom, 3.5-bath looker has charm and elegance in every nook and cranny.

The front yard requires a second look with its grand entrance and front door flanked by stately columns. With a semi-circular cover and classic light fixture overhead it's obvious that this home's interior will be just as grand.

Once inside the foyer leads to a gleaming wooden staircase, and to the large, living-dining area. The dining room flows into the living room where hardwood floors are complemented by white wainscoting, a sitting area complete with fireplace, sunny windows dressed in elegant drapes, and an arched, crisp-white ceiling with exposed beams. The dining room leads to a fully updated kitchen with marble counter tops, white French-style cabinets, a cherry-wood topped island, a French window at the sink that overlooks the backyard, darker hardwood floors and a seating area to one side with French doors leading out to the pool and patio.

Walk outdoors and step onto the pavers that surround the pool and jacuzzi and lounge in one of two areas, a covered area with eat-in facilities including a massive outdoor stove top with storage cabinets underneath and the eating area underneath a white, wood-beam trellis covered in greenery.

The library/den features wooden, built-in bookcases with a bay window as the centerpiece and more hardwood floors. The master suite has a large seating area, double French doors that lead outside, super-sized walk-in closet and a bathroom to rival any other with marble floors, dual sinks, spa bath with steam shower and jacuzzi tub. Another great feature is the 600-bottle climate controlled wine cellar which makes the home perfect for entertaining.

At $322 a square foot this is not the most expensive home in the area, it's in the median range and the area is close to the up-and-coming MiMo district along Biscayne Boulevard with it's great shopping and dining. And nearby downtown Miami Shores has it's share of quaint eateries and shops, too.
