A roundup of real estate, neighborhoods, and arts news around South Florida:
Located on just under an acre of land, extremely close to the sweeping Lake Worth views of S. Flagler Drive, but on a leafy and extremely quiet dead-end street, this Balinese compound was built in 1950, yet has been thoroughly updated for contemporary life. Located at 250 Essex Lane, does that updating, along with the obscene excesses of today's real estate market, justify a $22 million price tag, however?
Like a whiny child that hates to share, the Disney Company has abruptly announced they are pulling out of their plan to build a Brightline train station on Disney property. “As many people who are involved in this project are aware, the new route configuration does not support a Disney Springs station and as a result, we don’t anticipate being part of this project," Disney spokesperson Avery Maehrer recently told the Orlando Business Journal. Mr. Maehrer didn't elaborate further, but like any good spokesperson he still managed to say very little and a whole lot at the very same time.
An adorably ancient coral rock house and accompanying guest cottage on Coconut Grove's Oak Avenue, at numbers 3041 and 3041 1/2 practically spitting distance from Main Highway, is the kind of property that could only ever exist in the Grove. Oozing old grove salty sailor vibes from between every stone, the house is historically designated by the City of Miami, making it most certainly not the kind of place one would or even could buy just for the land and "location, location, location" investment potential.
Sometimes a property arises that appears to be the absolute definition of obscenely luxurious decadence, to practically an irresponsible degree. That's one way to describe this rental that recently hit the market at 242 Washington Avenue for an absolutely lavish $21,000 a month, in the heart of South Beach's South-of-Fifth enclave.
