Take a step back in time in this authentic Mediterranean Art Deco home in the center of all that South Beach has to offer today. Located in the historic, tree lined Palm View residential neighborhood – an oasis just one block to Lincoln Road and within easy walking distance to the beach, New World symphony, movies and dynamic Sunset Harbour. This is a rare opportunity to lead an urban pedestrian lifestyle while enjoying the comforts and privacy of a single family home.
The Palm View Historic District location is truly unique. The Palm View district is associated with the earliest pioneers of Miami Beach, Carl Fisher and John Collins. Fisher created the subdivision in 1920 and developed it with the intention of providing some of the finest private residences of the era. Collins was responsible for the oldest structure within this historic district, the Collins Canal, which enabled Collins to transport his produce from the groves to Biscayne Bay. Palm View is also associated with internationally recognized American artist, Henry Salem Hubbell, who resided in the area from 1926-1940.
While Palm View is steeped in a wide array of historical significance, there is none more prominent than the rich display of architecture evident throughout the district. There are 10 architectural styles represented, ranging from Masonry Vernacular to Mediterranean Revival and Med/Deco Transitional to Streamline Moderne, then evolving into the Post WW II Modern styles. Mediterranean Revival is the style with the most significant concentration in the area as it was highly fashionable during the city’s booming land development period. Many master architects are represented including Schultze and Weaver, Pancoast, Hohauser, Schoeppl, Skinner and Robert E. Collins.
Built in 1946, this meticulously preserved home embodies the optimism that was a profound part of the Art Deco period in Miami Beach. Enter the home through a charming rotunda foyer that flows into the ample living room with vaulted ceiling featuring original moldings and fireplace. The dining room showcases recessed lighting which was considered one of the most luxurious features available in a home at that time. Throughout the home are beautiful original Terrazzo floors and original wood flooring in the bedrooms. The bedrooms are very spacious with bay windows allowing for ample natural light and each includes a bathroom en suite. In the bathrooms are hand painted and signed original murals of native Florida wildlife creating a one-of-a-kind retreat within the home. The expansive kitchen with high ceilings has a pantry and closet for ample storage, and space for a breakfast table. The family room leads to a Florida room with access to a unique native garden with exotic fruit trees designed to attract birds and several varieties of butterflies. The garage has been converted to a studio with a bathroom, fashioning a private area for your guests. The property is zoned RM1 multi-family which permits an additional structure, if so desired.
