A piece of architectural history, this Morningside compound, inclusive of a main home and two guest houses, fuses the calming essence of Old Florida with the charming character of a small European town. Located in Miami’s Morningside historic neighborhood at 545 NE 59th St., the gated Old Spanish residence, priced at $1,095,000, is on a 20,550-square-foot lot and boasts 4,399 square feet of living space.

The antique-style front door of the four-bedroom, four-and-one-half-bath main home gives way to original wood floors; beamed volume ceilings and archways; as well as a fireplace; a recently updated kitchen complete with wood, granite and stainless steel finishes; a formal dining room; foyer and library. Additional amenities include a dramatic wood staircase, oversize bedrooms and a master suite inclusive of a spacious bath and walk-in closet. Outside, among 20,000 square feet of lushly landscaped grounds, are two separate mother-in-law suites designed to emulate the welcoming ambiance of the main house.

The compound, built in 1925, also features a fenced yard and an eight-foot privacy wall.

Located within walking distance of the area’s variety of shops and restaurants, the residence is ideal for all lifestyles. Adding to its appeal, the property, should its owner desire a change, can be easily modified, and the neighborhood’s residential and commercial zoning allows for flexible uses.
