Coconut Grove Real Estate
With lush landscaping, ocean breezes and a whimsical mindset, Coconut Grove has an inspiring location for artists, writers, musicians, business tycoons, and corporate execs since its origins in the late 1800’s. Deep into its tree-lined streets and historical architecture is a free-spirited romance surrounded by Bougainville that gives the city its unique character and ‘grovey’ atmosphere. Residents relish in Coconut Grove Real Estate and its luxury high-rise condos with views overlooking Biscayne Bay and moon over Miami landscape as well as charismatic villas nestled amongst the most tropical landscape in Miami. This is an experience that is nothing short of paradise.
Though its history dates back to 1825 when the Cape Florida Lighthouse went into operation, the founding of the neighborhood’s first post office in 1875 was the catalyst for Coconut Grove’s growth. Coconut Grove is an independent city with its own school, and public library as well as growing real estate and hotel sectors. Coconut Grove proves irresistible to tourists, residents, and the City of Miami, which annexed ‘The Grove’ in 1925. Today, Coconut Grove continues to set itself apart as a special hip haven from the hectic city lifestyle.
Bordered on the west by Le Jeune Road and Biscayne Bay on the east, Coconut Grove is centrally located just minutes away from Coral Gables, Miami Beach and Brickell. Residents will hardly find it necessary to leave the neighborhood as restaurants, a fresh food market, shops, and nightlife populate the city. With a population of nearly 19,000 and just over 8,500 households (as of the 2000 U.S. Census), the Grove offers a variety of amenities to help residents enjoy life to its fullest.
Boats sail from Biscayne Bay’s crystal waters daily, easily accessed from one of Coconut Grove’s many top-rated marinas. The open-air shops at Cocowalk and Mayfair offer something for all tastes, from the high-end to the eclectic. Culinary staples such as George’s in the Grove’s French fare, and Monty’s Raw Bar, where a grilled mahi-mahi is always in order, satisfy any craving. Outdoor enthusiasts enjoy biking through Main Highway, jogging along the trails at Kennedy Park, or playing Frisbee at Peacock Park. Landmarks such as The Barnacle Historic State Park and Vizcaya Gardens and Museums are testaments to the Grove’s rich culture and history.
Perhaps the truest attraction of Coconut Grove is the privilege of calling it home. In fact, in 1966 famed pop rock band, The Lovin’ Spoonful released a song about the city entitled, “Coconut Grove.” Coconut Grove Real Estate is one of the best in Miami real estate and as varied as its residents.
