This ranch-style house, built in 1949, was extensively restored and renovated by Rene Gonzalez, one of Miami's most acclaimed architects, first as his personal home and then his architecture office. The house has spectacular details, like the ceiling lights above the entryway, and restored original walnut cabinets rescued from the legendary Palm Bay Club.
Built in 1924, this mediterranean revival house in Morningside, the City of Miami's first historic district, has been renovated to its original charm and beauty. The main house has three bedrooms, two baths, a fireplace, a vaulted kitchen and a sunny Florida room.

The gorgeous historic house at 500 NE 57th Street isn't in the quietest part of Morningside, the impressively historic neighborhood in Miami's Upper East Side that was once a hidden gem. Now the neighborhood is well known and very expensive, and this house is a great microcosm of that. Check out the photos below.
It looks like Morningside's iconic, midcentury modern, Rufus Nims-designed Jetsons House, after being listed for $1.875 million about a year ago, was taken off the market at some point, unsold. Although in a great neighborhood, and oozing with futuristic, modern flair, the house needs work, is rather small, and is on a rather humdrum lot. In this soft market, perhaps almost 2 mil was a tad much?
The elevated house in Morningside known by neighbors as the 'Jetsons House' because of its retro-futuristic appearance is back on the market, listed for $1.875 million, two years after the house sold for $1.5 million. Located at 5261 NE 5th Avenue, it's looking good, having been cleaned out and spruced up a little, showing off lots of original details by architect Rufus Nims from its construction in 1949.
