I’m so pleased to re-introduce this stunning Mediterranean villa on St. Gaudens Rd. in Coconut Grove. Built in 1935 and impecably updated, this 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath home has an attached guest suite or private office that adds a 5th bedroom.
This is truly a special vintage home with Italian, Byzantine and Moorish influence from Southern Spain and France. Applied Spanish Baroque twisted columns, stunning arches and casement fenestration are featured as well as classic stucco walls, red tile roof and wrought iron gates.
As you enter the property through electric gates, you come upon a spectacular heated pool and elegantly manicured garden, nestled behind a majestic privacy wall.
Once inside, a large foyer welcomes you as you make your way to the formal living room, with gorgeous arched windows, French doors, a fireplace and soft natural illumination. This room is truly beautiful.
But it’s the modernized kitchen that really defines the style of the home, blending old world charm with contemporary function and convenience. Top line appliances, like a Thermador gas cooktop, Sub Zero refrigerator, wine cooler and ice maker are juxtaposed with white marble counters and imported French antique cabinets.
Off the kitchen is a sensational family room surrounded by windows that flood the room with light and provide lovely views of the back garden.
Up the stairs is a unique and large mid-level bedroom or flex space with wood floors, full bath , French doors and charming covered veranda overlooking the garden.
As you continue up the stairs, there are three more bedrooms, two children’s rooms that share a bath and the principle bedroom. The principle bedroom oozes romance with wood floors, fire place, elegant casement windows, grand walk-in closet and lovely white marble bath with dual sinks and glass shower enclosure.
The guest suite or private office is attached to the main house with a separate entrance. It has it’s own AC, Travertine floors, a kitchenette with microwave, sink, mini-fridg, and tons of storage.
Poised on a 12,000 square foot lot, this home not only has a spectacular manicured front garden, but a large and private backyard.
St Gaudens Road, a special tree-lined street that runs to the bay, is well-know to Grovites as one of the premiere places to live in the Grove. It couldn’t be a more desirable location, off the beaten path, yet walking distance to the Coconut Grove business district, restaurants and shopping.
I’d love to show you this strikingly magical home, perfect for the Coconut Grove lifestyle. 305-898-1852 Wellins.D@ewm.com
