Tucked away in Miami Beach in one of the area’s most affluent communities, this four-bedroom, three-and-one-half-bath, Mediterranean-style residence offers a rare opportunity to recreate timeless elegance in an unparalleled location. Built in 1935, the home at 5637 La Gorce Dr. presents the perfect canvas for a masterful renovation, retaining its classic architecture while incorporating new modern amenities. Offered at $1,349,000 and situated within close proximity to top schools, boutiques, restaurants and the famed La Gorce Golf Course, it’s a picture-perfect setting for fine living.

Constructed with privacy in mind, the entire property is surrounded by lush landscaping. The two-story home measures 3,582 square feet in the interior and has a separate guesthouse. Residents will find a large foyer entry and a formal living room with original tile floors and a fireplace. While French doors in the dining area and kitchen provide easy access to the pool and patio, the family room is the ideal space for casual relaxation.

Each generously scaled living area has been accented by unique architectural details including archways, high ceilings and wide windows. Hardwood flooring and a terrace complement all four bedrooms, positioned on the home’s second story, and the large master bedroom features a fireplace.

Outside, the expansive pool and patio sit adjacent to the home’s one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse. The home has impact-resistant windows and doors, and a three-zone central air-conditioning system.
