La Paloma, a restaurant which the New Times once declared the Best Place In Miami To Take Your Grandmother, was a longstanding fixture of old world Miami dining palaces. When not holding court at the overstuffed, velvet-swathed, lace-covered, overly-formal, and downright baroque restaurant, owners Maria and Werner Staub repaired to this bayside estate at 5925 N. Bayshore Drive in the Mediterranean Revival enclave of Morningside. Built in 1928, this historic house is refined and restrained in every way that La Paloma was not. It has a stately grandeur, yet is not overexhuberant in scale, is well proportioned, and is well detailed. A large lawn slopes down to the bay amid palms and a guest house helps enclose a motor court around the front. The Staubs no longer own the restaurant or the house, but the house can be yours for $4.85 million.
