4501 Santa Maria is truly a unique architectural gem on one of the most beautiful streets in Coral Gables, a city well known for its plethora of architectural gems. The home, originally designed by noted architect, William E. Tschumy, Sr. in the 1950s, has attracted, over the years, some owners of note such as Florida legal legend, Chesterfield Smith and the present owners, a designer who got her start with the founders of the illustrious architecture firm, Arquitectonica and now has her own firm, Piano Nobile, and her husband, an architect who specializes in historic preservation projects.
This architecturally significant home also has a prized location with a view to the east out over the Donald Ross-designed, 18-hole Riviera Golf course.
The home’s stately, almost austere facade belies the wealth of elegant and elaborate Neo-classical architectural elements within such as dramatic 15-foot ceilings, 24-inch deep dentil crown moldings, wide loggia with Doric columns and large central courtyard grandly open to the sun and stars.
This home is a beautiful creation on a street of exceptional beauty, the perfect marriage of man-made structure and natural setting.
This residence is offered at $1,990,000.
