Designed in the 1920s by architect Mott B. Schmidt for developer George Merrick, this spectacular house in Coral Gables's themed 'French City Village' was just put on the market for $2.75 million. It's so sublimely perfect you just wanna die. "The home of a renowned artist" according to the brokerbabble (property records name the owners as Jerome and Karla Soumaid) the house has been magnificently preserved and sensitively updated, with new appliances in a kitchen that looks like it's straight out of Cinderella and a living room that looks like the domain of a minor aristocrat. The 3,358 square foot house has four bedrooms, and three and a half baths.
