The Village of Pinecrest is one of the most beautiful and desirable residential communities in South Florida. Located south of Miami International Airport and Downtown Miami, Pinecrest has that open air, country feeling along with the conveniences of city life.
This eight square mile area is home to about 19,000 residents with an average household income of $201,000 according to Bloomberg and an average house value of $819,000 in 2017. Bloomberg also ranks Pinecrest as #84 in the hundred richest places in the US.
This gem of a neighborhood is known for its spectacular old grove acre properties. Older homes are traditional ranch style that have given way to spectacular new construction from modern and contemporary to Key West style custom-built homes on acre-plus properties of Florida Pine, oak hammock and coconut palms. Residences range from $ 500,000 to well over $6 million. Land values have skyrocketed in Pinecrest as the intrinsic value of acre properties are at a premium.
