And God took a handful of South Wind and from it formed a horse, saying: “I create thee, Oh Arabian. To thy forelock, I bind Victory in battle.On thy back, I set a rich spoil and a treasure in thy loins. I establish thee as one of the Glories of the Earth . . . I give thee flight without wings.”
— from Ancient Bedouin Legend
Did you ever wonder what it was like to live in a Southern Plantation home?
Now is your chance to own one of the truly classic and elegant homes in The Redland. Designed by renowned South Florida Architect, Edward Marion Ghezzi and built by the finest craftsman of its time, this gracious home was built to accommodate every need.
The dramatic, two-story foyer entry gives you a glimpse of what you can expect.
What could be more Southern than a floating spiral staircase?
If you work out of your home, the office/den with its own full bath off the foyer entry is perfect. Visitors to your office can be escorted in without disturbing the rest of the household.
Everyone seems to congregate in the kitchen – the heart of the home. This one has more cabinets than you will ever need and the adjoining breakfast room can comfortably seat 10 people. There is even a walk-in pantry.
Is formal entertaining your style?
The oversized dining room can be set up to seat 16 people. After dinner why not relax and enjoy quiet conversation or a piano recital in the living/music room. The spot in front of the bay window is the perfect place for your Christmas tree.
Informal is more to your liking?
Easy enough in the large family room with wood burning fireplace to add to the ambiance and a full wet bar with easy access to the patio. Love to have bar-b-ques? This patio has a built-in-gas one. Plenty of room for everyone to enjoy an outdoor party with built-in wood benches along the brick flower beds and nine ceiling fans to keep everyone cool. What better place to enjoy that morning cup of coffee while being serenaded by birds nestled in the backyard trees. Feel the stress leave your body when you take a walk thru the backyard grove. No neighbors peering into your yard here.
The four downstairs bedrooms are all connected by Jack and Jill bathrooms so no one ever has to walk out into the hallway to use the bathroom. There is an abundance of storage space here. A massive hanging closet in the hallway and a walk-in cedar lined one for your linens. And, then there’s the laundry room. Oversized with washer, dryer and sink plus one whole wall has floor to ceiling shelves hidden behind folding doors. Did I mention that there are three storage rooms off the carport with one being a workshop?
Do you have in-laws that live with you, a young adult still at home or out-of-town guests that stay for long periods of time?
They will love the quarters off the patio with its own private entrance and huge walk-in closet and full bath. It gives everyone their own space and privacy, including you.
Now what about you?
Just walk up the beautiful spiral staircase and enter your own private world of the Master Suite. What could be more romantic than lighting the wood burning fireplace or enjoying one of our beautiful Florida sunsets on your own private patio. Every master suite should have two closets. Who will be the lucky one here to claim the 14’x14’ one? Ah, the master bathroom. Of course, this one has double sinks and a dressing table in the long vanity. There is even a large, floor to ceiling, linen closet with plenty of room for towels, shelves and a built-in hamper. Let’s not forget the large soaking tub with jets and separate shower.
What about schools?
Avocado Elementary, South Dade Middle and South Dade High School with six magnet programs including the International Baccalaureate one service this neighborhood. It’s also a few minutes drive to Miami-Dade Community College, Medical Magnet High School, Miami-Dade Medical School and several private schools.
Where is this home located?
In an estate area of The Redland already being called the next Pinecrest with close proximity to schools, shopping and the Homestead business district. A five minute drive to the Turnpike and Homestead Hospital. It’s a 20 minute drive to the Florida Keys and 45 minutes to Miami International Airport.
