Welcome to Miami’s Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount across various South Florida neighborhoods. Is one man’s studio another man’s townhouse? Let’s find out!
We hit up the Miami area last week with a rental budget of $1,200 per month, where voters settled on a studio in Normandy Isles.
This week, we’re home shopping with a budget of $925,000.
Our house hunt takes us through Palmetto Bay, South Beach, Coral Gables, North Miami, and Miami Shores. Which one is it going to be?
We’ll start with the least expensive property and move our way up.
South Beach: 1330 West Avenue #801
This two-bed, two-bath at the Waverly offers sensational bay views, 1,262 square feet of living space, and a prime South Beach location. It’s the cheapest on our list and also the smallest.
North Miami: 11111 Biscayne Boulevard #2055
This unit features spectacular bay views from a large residence (over 3,600 square feet) comprised of two units on the 20th floor. It has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
Coral Gables: 414 Majorca Avenue
Built in the 1920s, this renovated 2,754-square-foot Old Spanish home is two stories, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a separate guest cottage.
Palmetto Bay: 7480 Southwest 179th Street
The southernmost home on our list is also the largest, sizing up at over 5,700 square feet. It was designed by Ramon Pacheco, and includes marble floors, a wide-open living area with an expansive kitchen.
Miami Shores: 9510 Biscayne Boulevard
Here’s a 3,720-square-foot Mediterranean off Biscayne Boulevard with five bedrooms, three bathrooms, a two-story foyer and a gazebo in the backyard by the pool area.
