Listed just over a month ago for $1.78 million, this modernist house in Coral Gables embodies the 'machine for living,' minimalist, glass-on-white ethos of high modernism, with a Le Corbusian / Bauhausian aesthetic.

A well-preserved courtyard house in Coral Gables' historic Chinese Village, with plenty of original details and exotic charm, has just hit the market for $1.625 million. When the City of Coral Gables was being developed in the 1920s, although most of it was built in the Mediterranean Revival style, little 'themed' villages were also created to add some architectural variety. The most fantastical of them all is undoubtedly the Chinese Village, with only eight houses
In Miami, townhouses used to be considered a little, well, bleh. Why have a narrow, skinny thing, when you can spread out with a big, circular driveway, and a lagoon style pool? Well, things change, and there are a lot of very nice townhouses around Miami, like this fabulous, three-story number that feels straight out of... London. It has four bedrooms, five baths, and a roomy 3,781 square feet. Oh, and it's on the end of a block of new equally new townhouses, so you've got views in three directions. Naff? Nahhhh.

For the past few years, Freebee Shuttles have operated in the urban centers of Miami, where population is dense enough that advertising revenue from the shuttles can pay for their operation, like Downtown Miami and South Beach, but now Miami-Dade transit is allowing transit dollars to be used to subsidies the expansion of Freebee into cities where there isn't a large enough population to justify trolley service, reports the Miami Herald. And Uber could be next.
This 5,000 square foot house sits on a plum corner lot on Coral Way, that majestic, oak-shaded street bifurcating Coral Gables, and neighboring Toledo Street. The two-story Med Revival palazzo was built in 1926 and is located in one of the oldest parts of Coral Gables, catty-corner to the George Merrick House, the home of Coral Gables' founder.

I'm not sure if it's historic or not, but this arabic-inspired courtyard house in Coral Gables is still pretty dang gorgeous.  Located at 5538 San Vincente Street, it's on the market for $1.65 million. They don't build classy, courtyard houses like this that often anymore. The brokerbabble is a little over the top though.
One of Coconut Grove's historic and exotic Chinese Village houses is back on the market after flipping on and off for the last few years, with a price cut of about $700,000 from its high in 2015.

The Palace, in Coral Gables, is one heck of a luxurious retirement home. Costing a cool $13,000 a month to live there, The Palace was featured on Vice Media's 'Most Expensivest.' a show where musical artist 2 Chainz checks out the most balling, most expensive of everything there is.
Humpy, happy Monday everyone. Here's the news:
