Echoing the historic splendor and stateliness of Old World Mediterranean-style architecture, this magnificent estate in the heart of Coconut Grove has been masterfully restored, offering the utmost in modern amenities while maintaining its timeless elegance. Built in 1936 and recently featured in Architectural Digest, the two-story residence at 3431 N Mooring Way is nestled within the exclusive gated enclave of The Moorings. The residence features unique craftsmanship and custom built-ins throughout and offers a multitude of conveniences including its close proximity to the Village of Coconut Grove’s many boutiques, restaurants and top-ranked schools.
This majestic and extremely private home is priced at $3,995,000.
Inside, fine details abound including wood and marble flooring, custom impact windows and French doors, as well as wood-beamed volume and vaulted ceilings. The expansive, light-filled great room provides a welcoming backdrop for gatherings of family and friends. The spectacular kitchen is outfitted with beautiful, custom wood cabinetry, marble countertops, an island work center and top-of-the-line appliances. Among the home’s many unique features is a fireplace in the formal dining room, multiple archways and custom lighting. All serve to complement sunlit living areas, including a music room and a study. Bedrooms are spacious, and the expansive master suite has a private terrace. The home also has a vintage barrel-tile roof (new in 2005), plantation shutters and an ornate staircase.
Multi-level walled gardens encircle the home with lush and exotic tropical foliage. The estate, positioned 16 feet above sea level, provides a convenient retreat for avid boaters and water enthusiasts. Exclusive riparian rights, including a community marina and potential dock space, are key amenities available to homeowners in The Moorings.
