Coconut Grove, a tree-studded, bayside neighborhood established in 1825, happens to be the oldest neighborhood in all of Miami-Dade County. As such, it has over a century of rich history embedded into its distinguished community that continues to thrive to this day.
Alongside its profound history of entrepreneurial immigrant founders, is a tradition of deep-rooted values in nature, education, and culture. Some of the city’s most prized parks and gardens, such as The Kampong, Villa Vizcaya, The Barnacle, and Peacock Park, are located in the Grove as are some of the most reputable private schools in the country, such as Ransom Everglades.
These are just a few of the reasons why so many families and individuals choose to live in Coconut Grove’s quiet, residential streets. One historic house in particular, currently on the market, is a genuinely rare and special home located within an exclusive gated community.
Originally built in 1928, Shambala still holds on to its antique charm while having the comforts of a new age home. As soon as you walk into this cozy and inviting house, you feel like you are somewhere truly extraordinary, from the high-end finishes to the beautifully painted walls and ceilings, this estate has a distinctive design that is surely irreplaceable.
From the state-of-the-art movie theater, to the gourmet chefs kitchen, and the gorgeous formal living and dining rooms in between, every inch of this waterfront home exudes luxury at its finest.
Upstairs, you have four guest bedrooms and a sprawling master suite. The latter is complete with a generous master bathroom and two walk-in closets. Easily accessible by elevator, the second floor of this remarkable residence includes two majestic balconies overlooking the verdant backyard and broad canal with direct access to Biscayne Bay.
“Speaking of the backyard, it is so lushly landscaped, all perfectly manicured, that it feels like a jungle oasis amidst a metropolitan city,” says Danny Hertzberg, member of The Jills real estate team. Catch some rays by the pool, lounge in the covered terrace, or relax on the 120-foot dock, your time outdoors will be thoroughly enjoyed.
