Lavish, tropical retreat in South Miami boasts timeless qualities

Exclusive and elegant, this Florida Vernacular residence in South Miami features timeless architecture and design. Built in 2005 at 6051 SW 85th St., the six-bedroom, five-and-one-half-bath home is on a beautifully landscaped 11,520-square-foot lot and priced at $1,519,000.

The home’s classic style can be enjoyed even from its long driveway and expansive front yard – both complemented by lush, tropical foliage and a large, welcoming veranda. Inside, throughout a warmly decorated, spacious interior encompassing nearly 5,000 square feet, the estate boasts coveted amenities including hardwood floors, impact windows, French-style doors and custom millwork.

On the first floor, the formal, sunlit foyer leads to a magazine-quality formal living room with elegant tray ceilings. The home’s “cook’s kitchen” has been outfitted with state-of-the-art appliances, granite countertops, beautiful wood cabinetry and a dual-sided snack court with ample counter space. The estate’s second floor features a luxurious master suite and three children’s bedrooms as well as a spacious upstairs family room with balconies overlooking the home’s gardens.

Outside, verdant lawns and a large patio encircle a sparkling pool. The residence additionally has a guest suite, staff quarters, a private office and two-car garage. The neighborhood itself is an exceptional, family-friendly enclave, conveniently located near top area schools, boutique shopping, unique restaurants and Dante Fascell and Fuchs parks.
