Miami House for Sale: West Kendall Oasis in the Trees, $950K

9737 98th st. Miami, FlaI don't necessarily want to live in a treehouse, but I'd like to get close to the feeling of it. The house for sale at 9737 SW 98th St. in Miami, Fla. does just that on an acre of property with soaring oaks throughout.

The 3,396-square-foot home has enough trees around it to support a few more hammocks beside the one pictured. Then everyone living there would be happy. I know $950,000 is a steep price for hammock space, but the owner is willing to negotiate. More on that later, here's what you get:The home is in the West Kendall suburb of Miami, and overlooks a golf course. It has four bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half-baths. Two of the bedrooms are masters, one of which is upstairs with a master bath and sitting area, and a balcony overlooking the property. You'll probably want to budget for a gardener to keep the landscaping manicured.

The house also has a gated driveway, fireplace, wood floors, and room for boat and RV parking in its two carports and two-car garage.

But back to the hammock and the price. (Let's assume the hammock is part of the deal.) To make the deal more enticing, the owner will consider a trade for a smaller home in the area. The list price is $950,000, although a Trulia listing shows it at $899,000 in November.

If the Trulia price is accurate, it's closer to the price of similar homes for sale in West Kendall, which have sold for an average of $854,000. That could make having to pay extra for the hammock easier to swallow.
