This early 1950s home with its charming white picket fence, ivy draped gazebos and undulating acre landscape of butterfly gardens and ancient, towering oak trees just needs a little Atlantic Ocean in its backyard to complete the Cape Cod look.

There’s no ocean here, but there is a new 17-by-35 heated, saline pool for the serious swimmer.

This home was expertly and very imaginatively restored and renovated over the last five years. It offers three bedrooms and three baths, a glamorous new kitchen with white Calacatta marble counters and Viking appliances, all new baths and top-of-the-line electronics throughout all rooms with smart house panels to control music, alarm and lighting. The original white terrazzo floors have been restored to perfection and there is a two-car garage.

The home, at 5978 Miller Rd., is two blocks West of Coral Gables in the charming City of South Miami.

This property is offered for $1,396,000.00.

For more information, contact Laura Mullaney at 305-790-1000. More photos of the home can be seen on www.5978 Miller.com.
