It doesn't seem possible to find a home in the Miami-Dade County's upscale Pinecrest
for less than a million. NBA
superstar Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat
used to live here.
In other words, this area ain't cheap. So under a mil around here sure is. The median family income in Pinecrest is over $120K, and everything about the village is manicured and meant to be aesthetically pleasing.
Ranch-style homes built on acre lots is how Pinecrest was developed. This $925,000 home on a 37,000-square-foot lot at 11300 SW 65 Ave.
is a perfect example of what the town has to offer.
The front lawn of the three-bedroom, three-bath home is, alone, a feast for the eyes. A winding driveway leads to a brickfront entrance. The sprawling living room of this 2,897 square-foot house has an inviting seating area around a fireplace; pristine pinewood floors; and a sunny window facing the backyard.
The tiled family room flows into a huge, eat-in kitchen
. Six stools surround an L-shaped seating area that looks into the kitchen
; its stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator all built-in.
The kitchen also has more than 20 pine cabinets of various sizes. It's definitely a cook's kitchen and a sunny window above the sink overlooks the outdoor patio.
Enter the patio through French doors in the family room and come out to a white wood-beam ceiling, and a rectangular 25-meter pool with plenty of room around its perimeter for lounging. The dining room also looks out onto the pool, through attractive wrap-around bay windows.
The master bedroom features sliding glass doors that lead to the back patio as well.
What do other homes around the surrounding blocks go for? This home runs $319 per square foot. Others in the area run a few dollars less per square foot and some run as much as $30-$45 more, so this one's right in the middle on that scale. But since it's smaller than most homes in the area, it's a rarity at under $1 million.
