With one of Coconut Grove’s most coveted addresses, 3467 North Moorings Way, this expansive yet charming home epitomizes the spirit of Mediterranean living heightened by its warm display of intricate details, lush greenery and panoramas of Biscayne Bay.

Situated on a 28,577-square-foot lot, the six-bedroom, six-and-one-half-bath estate, built in 1929 and restored in 2002, exudes Old World luxury. A stately wood entry gate leads into the villa’s palm-spotted courtyard. The home’s interior, boasting more than 6,000 square feet of living space, features Cuban terracotta floors, fireplaces and wood-beamed ceilings.

Other amenities of the home, which is being sold completely furnished, include a formal dining room, library, generous bedrooms with en-suite baths, and a master suite complete with a limestone-and-marble-accented master bath and a private balcony. In addition to a state-of-the-art gas range, two ovens and a Sub-Zero refrigerator, the estate’s kitchen features marble countertops and 18th-century floors imported from France.

Hardwood floors, custom cabinetry and plaster moldings can be enjoyed throughout the residence, and French doors give way to a terrace and flourishin g grounds with vistas of Biscayne Bay. Yet beyond its pool, quaint guesthouse and captivating views, it is the romantic gardens surrounding the property that accentuate its distinct quality. Highlighted by fish pools, lily ponds, meditation gardens, grass paths and a banyan tree, the exotic setting creates a whimsical atmosphere.
