A rare piece of South Florida history is being offered to prospective home buyers in Coral Gables. Built in 1899, this iconic offering pre-dates the city and is the oldest standing house in Coral Gables. Located at 6810 Maynada St. and priced at $775,000, it features three bedrooms, two baths and one half bath, and offers a host of amenities.
With only four owners in its history, the home, often referred to as the “Lang/Adams House,” has maintained much of its original look and feel. Constructed from Dade County pine, it is accented with wood flooring, an original tin ceiling and a large, airy front porch. The dining room is spacious and the living room features a fully functional wood-burning fireplace. Upstairs the bedrooms are open and charming – the master bedroom has a sitting room – and the master bath includes a pedestal-footed bathtub.
Outside, a separate freestanding carriage house is comprised of a three-car garage and studio apartment. The backyard is expansive and dotted with native, mature trees. Built by a farmer, the home stands on what was originally a 10-acre avocado and mango orchard owned by Julia Tuttle. It’s a special, graceful offering that’s ideal for a buyer looking for a historic preservation project. For added convenience, the home has a new roof, built in 2007.
