Coral Gables Real Estate

The Coral Gables, known as “The City Beautiful,” combines the old world charm of Mediterranean revival architecture with modern day luxury. Conceived by George E. Merrick in the 1920s, as one of the first planned communities in the United States, Coral Gables is home to the University of Miami and several country clubs with sprawling golf courses. It features canopied boulevards, forty miles of waterways, more than 20 parks, more than 33 public tennis courts, and two public golf courses. Coral Gables Youth Center features state-of-the-art facilities for the youth and adult activities.  It also features the historic Venetian Pool, a spring-fed grotto swimming pool, and a grand City Hall, the capstone of its shopping promenade and business district, known as “Miracle Mile.” Over 175 multinational companies are located in the Miracle Mile area, in addition to more than 30 fine art galleries and 26 consulates and trade offices. Miracle Mile and Giralda Plaza also provides some of South Florida’s finest dinning, live theater, and shopping as well as a free trolley system, running along Ponce de Leon Boulevard.

Today, Coral Gables boasts one of only three National Landmarks, The Biltmore Hotel, which was designated in 1996. In addition, Coral Gables is home to nine properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including Coral Gables Merrick House, Venetian Pool and Coral Gables City Hall, as well as 600 locally designated properties.

Coral Gables is a highly sought after community in the South Florida area. In Coral Gables’ 40 miles of waterways you will find some of the most spectacular homes in Miami.

Coral Gables has numerous gated communities featuring security presence.

  • Journey’s End: This community has 18 homes with direct access to Biscayne Bay, private yacht and boat slips for those sites not directly on the water, jointly owned park and common areas, and private drives and roadways.
  • Gables Estates: This 200 acre waterfront community has sea walled canals that wind their way through the estates and lead directly to Biscayne Bay with no bridges. This private community includes 24-hour guardhouse, and a patrol car. Membership in the Gables Estates Club, Inc. is a prerequisite to purchase.
  • Snapper Creek Lakes: This area features homes on an acre of land or more. It is located across from Fairchild Tropical Gardens. This community has a privately owned boat basin with a full-time dock master. All home owners can dock their boat at the marina or store it in a dry shed or on land.
