The year was 1949, when Miami was slowly pronounced Mi-am-uh. Built on one of very few half-acre and larger lots on SW 85th Street (aka Snapper Creek Drive), this once rather rural area is now a quiet haven of lux living. You might call it 'Old Florida'with it's wide, shaded front porch amply suited for rocking and sipping lemonade, or its gleaming hardwood floors, or the magnificent Gumbo Limbo, Lignum Vitae, Oak, Royal Poinciana, and fruit trees. You'll find it's a NOW house though, perfectly ready to move into with an updated kitchen, CGI impact-resistant windows and doors, vaulted ceilings, Spanish barrel tile roof, and a phenomenal resort-style pool & patio. There's still a little room for improvement, but well worth investing in this storybook neighborhood where children play outside and dusk finds streets filled with conversation and camaraderie. Located in Unincorporated Dade County, on the perimeter of the City of South Miami, this very special home is within walking distance to the eclectic boutiques and restaurants on Sunset Drive, a stroll away from Dante Fascell and Fuchs Parks, and within minutes to the finest schools Dade County has to offer. With close proximity to Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, Pinecrest, Dadeland, the Metrorail and University of Miami, and moments to the corridors of Miami International Airport and Mary Brickell Village, it's no wonder this gem is in one of the hottest neighborhoods east of US1.
