It’s hard to call any piece of South Florida real estate a deal when it’s listed in the multi millions of dollars, but in this particular instance not too long ago an insane Pinecrest Mediterranean style estate came to market at $4.2 million. The basic stats are eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a little over 8,000 square feet and a pair of garages that can accommodate four cars. Before you shrug your shoulders and say, “Just another megamansion” here’s the kicker that we feel gives it some value – it’s on a double lot of about 2 acres in total. Check out that lawn. Seriously one of the best private green spaces of any home we’ve seen in a really, really long time. It would be an amazing space for a small guest house, a tennis court and really just about anything you could imagine.
The flipside to all of that is you have to live in Pinecrest and the driveway opens on to Red Road just south of 88th street, which is kind of a disaster. It is close enough to South Miami and the Shops at Sunset that you can bike there in a minute or two so you wouldn’t feel necessarily super trapped in the middle of nowhere.
