“Coral Gables has long set the high bar for luxury real estate,” says Forbes Magazine, and indeed it has some of the most valuable – and historic – homes in South Florida, with a median price per square foot ($423) almost twice that of the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area.
This month we take a look at three older homes in the center of Coral Gables, all completely redone and updated, with price points just under $2 million. While retaining their outward appearance, all have modernized interiors, with a penchant for spotless white.
