Walled Coconut Grove Oasis on Bougainvillea Rd. is $1.5M

New, 1 comment


Desined by an "iconic Miami architect" (the listing doesn't mention who), this coral rock house in the jungly depths of Coconut Grove was built in 1925, back when it was perfectly legal to dig up coral rock out of your backyard and build anything you wanted with it. Now houses faced in South Florida's peculiar variety of bedrock are a prized rarity, particularly when you catch a keeper with as many eclectic touches as this place, which is on the market for $1.499 million. The strikingly minimalist staircase in the living room, and the over-bed skylight in one of the bedrooms are particularly notable touches.
