Miami’s original neighborhood was founded in 1873 by an eclectic mix of pioneers, artists, intellectuals and adventurers. The tropical oasis of Coconut Grove thrives to this day as Miami’s escape from the stress of city life. Referred to by many as “The Grove”, it is located on the banks of Biscayne Bay minutes from downtown Miami. This quaint yet vibrant upscale community is pedestrian-friendly, has tree-lined streets, charming outdoor cafes and a variety of boutiques and trendy restaurants. Coconut Grove is perfect for boaters and is home to numerous marinas, yacht clubs and a sailing club. The real estate of Coconut Grove is diverse and offers many architectural designs from Old Spanish style and Contemporary to Italian Renaissance and Bohemian Villas. Homes are priced from the $350,000 range to over $10 million and are located in waterfront neighborhoods or one of the many gated communities.
