Coral Gables is an oasis of stately homes, oak-canopied boulevards, and upscale shops and restaurants amid plentiful green spaces – all in the heart of Miami. A singular vision developed by George Merrick in the 1920s, Coral Gables has a personality that’s distinctly it’s own – by design. “The City Beautiful” as it’s come to be known, is one of the country’s first planned communities and continues to stand out today as one of South Florida’s most prized gems.
Geographically, Coral Gables is vast. It spans from SW 8th Street in the north between Red Rd (sw 57th AV) and Douglas Rd (sw 37th Av) crosses US1 near the University of Miami and hugs Biscayne Bay all the way south to the community of Deering Bay on sw 136th St some 13 miles away. Although particularly known for ‘Old Spanish Architecture’ from the 1920’s, there is a wide-variety of architectural styles and price ranges in ‘the Gables’. These include charming cottage- like homes in the $500,000 – $700,000 range located in the “North Gables” to palatial waterfront estates in the gated neighborhoods along Old Cutler Rd valued at tens-of-millions of dollars. There are also many options for condo & townhome living from uber-luxury waterfront settings like The Gables Club on Edgewater Dr. to more urban options in the heart of the Gables financial district.
Downtown Coral Gables is located north of US1 and just east of LeJeune Rd. It’s anchored by Miracle Mile with its vast array of stores and restaurants. It is a hub for the international business community – More than 150 multinational companies maintain headquarters or regional offices here. Around the city there are notable landmarks, destinations, parks and other amenities. A few of our favorites are the Biltmore Hotel, the Venetian Pool, The University of Miami and Matheson Hammock Park. Coral Gables is one of the most in-demand real estate markets in South Florida and rightfully so! It’s beautiful, centrally located and offers something for everyone!
“Many of our more design-minded clients are drawn to Coral Gables because of its rich architectural history and the overall ‘feel’. The City is known for having strict standards when it comes to renovating or constructing new homes and buildings. Because of this, the Gables has maintained a more consistent aesthetic than a lot of Miami. Some of our favorite things to do in the Gables include shopping at Merrick Park, paddleboarding on the Gables waterway, a stroll along the Greenway near Granada Golf Course and, of course, a swim and brunch at the one-of-a-kind Biltmore Hotel”
