October 4, 2016

The Attraction of the World’s Wealthiest Families to Coconut Grove

Coconut Grove is known for its high-end lifestyle. Its bohemian chic atmosphere was even covered by the Wall Street Journal in an article describing the Grove’s transformation from Birkenstocks to Billionaires.

What makes all these high net worth individuals choose the Grove as their family’s residence or for pure investment purpose?

1. Great private schools

Coconut Grove is home to some of Miami’s best private schools like Carrollton, Ransom and St Stephens. The Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart is an all girls school that serves from grades Pre-Kinder to 12. Ransom Everglades serves grades 6 to 12. Grades 6 – 8 are served on the S BayShore Drive location while grade 9 to 12 are served at Main Highway. St Stephens Episcopal Day School serves grades from Pre-Kinder to grade 6.

2. Park Life

Merrie Christmas, David T. Kennedy Park and The Barnacle Historic State Park are located in safe and walkable distance to almost all single family homes in the neighborhood. The lush banyan tree filled Park of Merrie Christmas is located in South Coconut Grove just South of Main Highway. The other two parks are located on waterfront lots. The large Kennedy Park is in the North East of the Grove between South Bayshore Drive and the bay. The Barnacle Park is located close to Cocowalk and across the street from Greenstreet Cafe.

3. Being on the water

Coconut Grove is a bay front destination. This brings along luxurious waterfront mansions and the new breed of luxury waterfront condos with 12 ft ceilings and the most unobstructed views of the bay. Please click on the link for our video feature of Coconut Grove bay front living

4. Close proximity to everything in Miami.

Regardless if you need access to the urban core of Brickell (5 minutes by car) or Coral Gables (5 minutes by car) or Miami Beach (15 minutes by car), Coconut Grove is within close distance of it all. The airport is located just 15 minutes away from the core of Coconut Grove.

5. The Grove is organically developed

The Grove is naturally beautiful with lush landscaping and tree-filled streets often serving as the catwalk for proud peacocks. The neighborhood is extremely pretty and with so much green it feels like a jungle in places.

6. Quality of life and infrastructure

Coconut Grove is home to excellent restaurants and entertainment. A stroll down Main Highway will give you a good sense of the tranquility and chic yet laid-back dining options. Also important to mention is that Coconut Grove is 24/7 police controlled and awarded safest neighborhood within Miami Dade.

7. The socio-demograhics

The Grove is home to a large number of wealthy families which are highly educated and well travelled. Many young professionals relocate to Coconut Grove once they start a new family. The Grove’s demographic is divided over all ages while the majority of them are families with children.

8. A level of high quality real estate

Coconut Grove is home to some high quality mansions that have grown substantially over the last few years. Long gone are the Bahamian style homes to be replaced with contemporary villas and luxury waterfront mansions.
