Taking a moment to recall and write what I love most about the Magic City of Miami. I hope everyone is staying healthy and making the best of staying at home during this time.
A little bit about me, I grew up a neighborhood called Entrada Estates, just off Douglas Rd in the south part of Coconut Grove. Here our community consists of 32 homes and the majority are larger than 3,000 square feet and sit on more than 15,000 square foot lot sizes. The neighborhood entails three main streets: Stewart Avenue, Matheson Avenue and West Avenue.
Now that you know where I grew up as a child, I’d like to inform you on some awesome highlights that my community has to offer that I have grown to love over the years…
Now that I touched upon a few key highlights that I personally love, the question that follows is…why should you consider living in Coconut Grove?
Whether your retiring and looking to relocate or you are newly married and looking to establish a family here, the Grove is home. Here you’ll find lots of retirement communities along with young families moving to this area because of the great schools I mentioned above. Plenty of parks to enjoy with the kids along with sail boating, grabbing a drink at the famous Monty’s and festivals to enjoy all year round!
According to the US Census, Coconut Grove is the 2nd best neighborhood to live in Miami. You can’t go wrong buying in the Grove market. Why? It is one of the most stable markets Miami has to offer. The Grove is such a special place consisting of a unique mix of historic older homes with new construction. Properties within local historic districts appreciate at rates greater than the local market overall as well as faster. Historic districts are less vulnerable to market volatility from interest rate fluctuation and economic downturns. Some homes were built in Mediterranean and Spanish styles during the early 1900s, including the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, an Italian Renaissance-style villa.
Coconut Grove has everything you need. The perfect mix of city life, outdoor greens and seaside living. Not to mention, it’s also a very quick drive to Mercy Hospital just in case.
The Grove gives you a sense of belonging, at least for me it does. There is no place like it in Miami, guaranteed. The best way I can describe it would be luxury high-end living meets bohemian laid-back lifestyle with its artsy vibe, lush landscapes and free-roaming peacocks, the Grove has long been known as paradise. Whenever I talk about the Grove to my peers, I always tend to refer to it as its’ “own special hidden gem” because that’s exactly what it is. You don’t feel congested living here as you would if you were living in other parts of Miami, there just isn’t a surplus of buildings being built at once, which is essential to preserve its unique history and tropical culture.
You’ll be happy to know, if you’re looking to live somewhere where you can get the best of both worlds, city living with nature, Coconut Grove is it!
Best, Cristina Diez
