Alfred Browning Parker’s one-of-a-kind former home in Coconut Grove just sold for $2.05 million.

Woodsong was built by Parker for himself in the late 1960s and has been tastefully updated over the years, remaining one of the most unique homes in Miami.

It’s located near Ransom Everglades School at 3003 Seminole Street. The famous 3,100-square-foot residence offers multiple pavilions connected by a 90-foot lap pool, with a koi lagoon, waterfall, and tropical surroundings.

The vibrant home was constructed with Honduran mahogany and features large windows, welcoming in the lush exterior. It was named to Wallpaper Magazine’s “ten best residential builds” in the world back in a 2006 issue.

A modernist architect influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright, Parker was one of the most iconic architects in South Florida before passing away in 2011.

Woodsong was listed for as high $2.75 million last June and previously sold for $1.54 million in 2009.
