Just south of Miami, Coral Gables, Florida, is a city of 41,000 residents who enjoy close proximity to one of America's busiest and most culturally diverse hubs. A strong dedication to architectural aesthetics and restoration has resulted in the preservation of one of South Florida's most beautiful cities. High residential real estate values attest to the city's draw not only for new Floridians, but also for residents of Miami, many of whom are overflowing into Coral Gables to escape the comparative hustle and bustle of that much larger metropolis.

11 Casuarina Concourse in Gables Estates, Coral Gables Florida - Alan Potamkin's House

Entering the guard-gated, exclusive community of Gables Estates, via Casuarina Concourse, and driving all the way to the very end of the peninsula, passing some of the most beautiful homes in Florida, one finds him/herself in front of, perhaps the most grandiose property in all of Coral Gables, 11 Casuarina Concourse, home of Alan Potamkin. Situated on a 3.5-acre lot, the spacious 20,862 square feet house, with 8 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and 2 half-baths, faces the open waters of Biscayne Bay, with breath taking, testimonial views of Miami’s unmatchable beauty. It is no wonder that Miami is so often referred to as the magic city.

Some additional features of this marvelous Coral Gables mansion are an upstairs master suite with a full gym, billiard and media rooms, luitron lighting & a 12-camera security system. Any takers?

Coral Gables Vacant Lot Sold For $10.65 Million

A Coral Gables lot directly behind Alan Potamkin's house, sold and closed this week for $10,650,000. The lot measures more than 2.5 acres and is lined by the waterway leading directly into Biscayne Bay. Last month there were rumors that LeBron James, the newest addition to the NBA's Miami Heat, was trying to buy the Potamkin home, but when the Miami Herald finally spoke to Mr. Potamkin, he denied that there were any ongoing negotiations for the purchase of his mansion. The Potamkin property was listed for $49.5 million, and remained on the market for sale for more than a year, before the listing expired, with no buyers anywhere in sight. The hefty asking price chased away any would-be buyers. The vacant lot behind Potamkin's estate was listed for $15,700,000, and sold for a 32% discount. Although the location of the property can be said to be one of the best in Coral Gables, it pales compared to Potamkin's property, because it faces the canal and has no view to speak of. The seller lost money on the deal. The lot was purchased in 2003 for $10,500,000, and although it just sold for $150,000 more than that, carrying costs, and commissions forced the seller to take a loss. The property remained on the market for sale for 2 years and 3 months, before finally closing on August 16.

A-Rod Sells His Coral Gables Home for $8,500,000

A-Rod's Coral Gables House

A-Rod, New York Yankees star, and the most famous player in baseball today, just sold his home in Coral Gables for $8.5 million, a whopping $3.5 million less than the $12 million he paid for it in 2004. Located at 181 E Sunrise Ave., the 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 8,300 square feet house, is situated on one of the finest lots, measuring well over an acre, in a guard-gated Coral Gables community. The private bayfront sanctuary features breath taking oceanfront views, and the property offers the finest in waterfront yachting, entertaining and living. When the New York Yankees star separated from his wife some time ago, A-Rod, whose real name is Alex Rodriquez, moved out of the house, and rented a home on Star Island for several months, as his Coral Gables home remained on the market without a buyer. This week he finally sold the home, 14 months after the property was first listed for sale. Few people could afford to take such a huge loss on a home sale, but when you are one of the highest paid atheletes in the world, perhaps the loss doesn't seem quite as dramatic.

The Coral Gables Rapid Transit Corporation was created by developer George Merrick in 1925 to connect his Coral Gables development with the City of Miami. On November 4, 1935, a hurricane destroyed most of the system’s overhead and left several trolleys stranded out on the line permanently ending the system's operations in the middle of the Great Depression.

Coral Gables Community

In addition to a strong local economy and progressive, diverse and educated populace, Coral Gables offers its residents an environment in which city developers and leaders take great care to promote the ongoing maintenance of the city's historic structures and its surrounding landscape. As long as all of these elements are in place, it's likely that property values will remain high in Coral Gables. This architectural gem of South Florida is likely to remain one of the state's strongest real estate markets well into the 21st century.
