Just 20 minutes from Downtown Miami, but a world away, is the Village of Pinecrest. One of Miami’s newer incorporated communities, Pinecrest is home to big yards and idyllic suburban planned living, as well as Gulliver Academy, a reknowned private school. Top of the line schools, both public and private, and an extensive park system make Pinecrest homes the perfect spot to raise a family. Pinecrest Gardens, once home to the Parrot Jungle attraction, now features a very popular farmer’s market on Saturday, horticulture classes, art tours, and summer camps. A green plan for the Village means that there are lots of bike paths and other open spaces to enjoy the beautiful Miami weather.
Home styles in Pinecrest Real Estate are largely family-oriented, including single-family homes in the $700,000 range to villas priced at upwards of $2.5 million. Ranch homes, modern architecture styles, and brand-new construction abound. There are condos available as well, in luxury resort-style complexes with beautiful landscaped grounds and amenities or low-rise buildings that could easily blend in on the Mediterranean coast.
Bordered by US 1 to the north, Red Road to the east, 136th Street to the south, and Old Cutler Road to the east, the Village of Pinecrest is not large but offers a full lifestyle. Minutes from the heart of the Village are the Dadeland Mall shopping and retail area and South Miami’s Shops at Sunset, both of which are surrounded by pedestrian-friendly shopping and dining areas.
