Coronavirus may be raging over all our heads, but the world must go on in some way, and interesting properties are still coming on the market, including this adorable–and restored–historic cottage in South Coconut Grove, built in 1915. The wooden house at 4286 S Douglas Road hit the market yesterday, for $1.499 million.
Built in a dense, jungly hammock, this piece of old Miami, most likely built with coveted and rare Dade County Pine, has been restored to its former glory while being adapted to modern living. The formal living areas artfully merge with the open plan dining room and kitchen while still maintaining a certain separation by way of the central staircase as a divider. Out back, a the private pool is sheltered by a huge banyan tree, and the guest house, which includes an artists’ studio downstairs and apartment above.
