South Miami Home for Sale, 4BR in Mint Condition for $650K

This place is a looker and in one of Miami-Dade County's most desirable neighborhoods, South Miami. The recent upsurge in nightlife and restaurants in the area's downtown has made it a mecca for the business/entrepreneurial set who like their options for places to dine, sip a few cocktails and go out on the town.

It's a nice alternative to South Beach where you might face parking hassles and a holier-than-thou attitude. In South Miami the vibe is quite the opposite.

Located at 7853 SW 68th Ave., the four-bedroom, two-bath move-in condition house was built in 1951, and although it retains it's charm it also has been renovated throughout.

Here are the details:
At 2,559 square feet -- that's $254 a square foot -- it's pricier than surrounding homes, but also features an additional bedroom compared to the others.

The home's impeccable landscaping and semi-circular driveway are an immediate draw. There's large ceramic tiles set in a diamond pattern throughout the living areas and in a square pattern in the master bedroom. There's also a custom-built bar area with sink, built-in shelves and plenty of storage space.

French windows with custom wooden blinds, along with maple doors and kitchen cabinets, create a uniform look, while the built-ins are perfect for displaying china. The kitchen's eat-in U-shaped area surrounds a center island, with granite counter tops, and adjacent to a grand living room. The eating/living space leads to a sunny family room large enough to hold a pool table and plenty of seating.

The family room opens to a wood-fence-enclosed back patio with landscaping that rivals the front yard. Palms and perfectly trimmed shrubs surround the pool area and it's easy to relax in the tiki hut, which has a built-in Italian stone bar, a buffet table and travertine floors. This is a pretty great property both inside and out. And it doesn't need any work.

And the neighborhood is pretty great, too. South Miami adopted the slogan "The City of Pleasant Living" and has a small-town feel with a mixture of old-time hangouts like historic Allen's Drugs, where folks can take a break at the lunch counter while shopping for everyday necessities.

There are also hip spots like Town Kitchen & Bar, where happy-hour cocktails and unique eats are served in a cool atmosphere. This South Miami home is also near some great gourmet spots like Sunset Corners, or for the mall hounds, there's Sunset Place.
