Unique residence in Coral Gables’ historic Dutch South African Village

 

ADVERTORIAL

This home was last on the market more than 75 years ago attesting to its comfort and livability, having had but one owner in all those years. But its 1920s magic and charm, evocative of that long ago lost era in American architecture when elegance and glamour were de rigueur, clearly captivated its owner as well.

Architect Marion Syms Wyeth’s remarkable Cape Dutch-style home at 6705 San Vicente St. is one of only five homes built in the 1920s in one of Coral Gables’ unique architecturally themed villages, which were created to add architectural diversity to the developing city. The Dutch Village homes were patterned after the farmhouses of the wealthy Dutch planters in South Africa in the 1800s.

The home has three bedrooms and two and one-half baths and a two-story guesthouse with two bedrooms and one bath. There is a classic center hall stairwell, large living room with a fireplace, formal dining room, large family room and a 50-foot long veranda facing the pool and courtyard-style patio.

This property is listed at $2,175,000.00.
