Imagine yourself basking in the South Florida sunshine year-round next to a shimmering blue pool in the backyard of your sleek Spanish Mediterranean mansion in one of the most exclusive communities in the world. This is the life you can lead as a homeowner in the prestigious community of Gables Estates in Coral Gables, Florida, a city in the Miami area.
Renowned industrialist Arthur Vining Davis developed this elegant and luxurious community in the late 50s and early 1960s when Miami was just beginning to grow into a major world city. Included within the gates of this highly secured oasis, where privacy and security are top priorities, are just 164 homes with deep-water waterways and vibrant foliage and gardens that wind through the estates. Not very far away from the cultural hubs of downtown Miami, the shops at Bal Harbour, Wynwood District, and the beautiful “Design District,” as well as being very close to the charming downtown Coral Gables’ numerous, top-rated restaurants, boutiques and upscale shopping, this family-friendly community is ideally located a short distance from everything that makes Miami the burgeoning arts, entertainment, and business hub that it is becoming today.
From Grand Spanish Mediterranean homes, to Art Deco and sleek modern designs, each home is perfectly designed for the luxury lifestyle. As one of the most exclusive communities in the United States, properties available range from $7.75 million to $49 million. The lucky elite who reside in these large estates tend to hold onto their homes, and therefore it is a rare opportunity to be able to buy property in this community.
With only 14 current listings, ranging in price from $7,750,000 to $49,000,000, you won’t want to miss the chance to find your dream home in this bit of paradise tucked along the water’s edge of “The City Beautiful.”
