Miami’s Oldest Home…

Barnacle1

 

Jason’s Commentary…

Last week, after having breakfast at Lulu’s in Coconut Grove I had some time on my hand to walk over to the Barnacle Estate (across from Greenstreet Cafe).  It is amazing what a jewel of Miami history we have in our own backyard here in Coconut Grove.  I took a few photos below for your enjoyment.

Commentary from the Florida State Park website…

“This beautiful house with a whimsical name dates to a quieter time. The Barnacle, built in 1891, offers a glimpse of Old Florida during The Era of the Bay. Situated on the shore of Biscayne Bay, this was the home of Ralph Middleton Munroe, one of Coconut Grove´s most charming and influential pioneers. Munroe’s principal passion was designing yachts. In his lifetime, he drew plans for 56 different sailboats. As a seaman, civic activist, naturalist, and photographer, Commodore Munroe was a man who cherished the natural world around him. A walk into the park passes through a tropical hardwood hammock. In the 1920s, it was representative of the original landscape within the city of Miami. Today, it is one of the last remnants of the once vast Miami Hammock. Enjoy sitting in the rocking chairs on the spacious porch used as a gathering place or on a bench under a tree for solitude.”

Hours of Operation…   

The Barnacle is open Wednesday through Monday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with tours at 10 and 11:30 a.m.; 1 and 2:30 p.m. The park is available on Wednesday and Thursday for group tours by advance reservation. The park is closed on Tuesdays, New Year´s, Thanksgiving and Christmas days.

Jason’s Commentary:

This sale closed last Friday.  Jason truly believed in the value of this property and the market did as well.  There were 2 competing cash offers!

Jason sold this unit for $565/sq foot.  This is the highest priced sale in Beacon Harbour since 2007.

Enjoy unobstructed wide bay views! (List Price includes boat slip and
3 covered parking spaces). Only two residences per floor accessed by dedicated
