What we love about this property crush:

When you look upon this house, the first thing that catches your eye is the expansive and lush green landscaping. Palm trees frame the lot, opening up to a courtyard with a stone fire-pit that can light your dinner party on a warm, balmy night. The property expands beyond its borders to a private dock on the Miami River.

The design of the home is archetypal of the mid-century modern aesthetic from the terrazzo floors to the high open-beamed ceilings. Mid-century takes a pause, however, for the streamlined kitchen full of top-of-the-line, stainless steel amenities (check out that commercial grade stove!). The two styles combine to create a functional yet airy, light-filled space, punctuated by the large, water-facing windows that serve to open the home further.

A small but striking feature of the home is the interlocking-wood wall sure to make you say, “Wow.” Oh, let’s not forget about the other wooden touches around the house—the extension of the kitchen counter and the bar reaching into the dining room. These little touches help to warm up the gallery-esque feel of the home. In the end, this home successfully combines styles for cool, coastal living.
