Coconut Grove and its real estate is distinctively charismatic. Lovingly referred to as “The Grove”, peacocks roam it’s winding, narrow streets shaded by sprawling live oaks, banyan trees and a host of tropical plants. Surrounded by mature foliage, Coconut Grove homes are warm and inviting with so much architectural appeal and character. Built in the late 1800’s, the county’s two oldest homes set the tone for the village’s charm with accents such as coral, limestone, and cypress and Dade-County pine. Other residence styles, such as tropical modernism and custom contemporary, followed throughout the 20th century. From internationally published mansions to cozy cottages, there are also upscale high-rise condominiums including the newly constructed Grove at Grand Bay, as well as gated communities with multi-family units along the water.
