Exclusive and elegant, this Florida Vernacular residence in South Miami features timeless architecture and design. Built in 2005 at 6051 SW 85th St., the six-bedroom, five-and-one-half-bath home is on a beautifully landscaped 11,520-square-foot lot and priced at $1,519,000.
The home’s classic style can be enjoyed even from its long driveway and expansive front yard – both complemented by lush, tropical foliage and a large, welcoming veranda. Inside, throughout a warmly decorated, spacious interior encompassing nearly 5,000 square feet, the estate boasts coveted amenities including hardwood floors, impact windows, French-style doors and custom millwork.
On the first floor, the formal, sunlit foyer leads to a magazine-quality formal living room with elegant tray ceilings. The home’s “cook’s kitchen” has been outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances, granite countertops, beautiful wood cabinetry and a dual-sided snack court with ample counter space. The estate’s second floor features a luxurious master suite and three children’s bedrooms as well as a spacious upstairs family room with balconies overlooking the home’s gardens.
Outside, verdant lawns and a large patio encircle a sparkling pool. The residence additionally has a guest suite, staff quarters, a private office and two-car garage. The neighborhood itself is an exceptional, family-friendly enclave, conveniently located near top area schools, boutique shopping, unique restaurants and Dante Fascell and Fuchs parks.
