Contemporary Centro Canvas Craves Your Creativity!
It’s extremely rare to find a home in historic Centro for under half a million dollars, but here is an opportunity just waiting for the innovative homeowner who wants to put their own stamp of creativity on a home that is much like a blank canvas, waiting to be molded into your own vision of perfection! Originally designed by a Miami architect, this home retained only the original historic façade as the architect built his own contemporary masterpiece inside. That original façade now forms the front building of this two-building home, housing bedrooms upstairs and downstairs in this front section, and maintained an elegant high-ceiling entry foyer for a dramatic entryway.
The central courtyard is currently hardscaped as an art gallery and oversized pool/fountain with a bridge walkway leading to the home’s all-glass façade and stone-column-bookended front veranda. Inside, the great room layout is anchored by a massive carved-cantera fireplace, while the second floor hosts exclusively the master suite, replete with a teardrop fireplace, outdoor terrace, oversized master bath with sunken tub and separate shower, and a mini-split. The third floor was originally a roofed terrace but has been enclosed with sloped glass to form an office, den or media area with a small terrace to the size. The photos show what the view could be from a roof terrace added atop this 3rd-floor den—they are stunning city-wide vistas above the treetops!
This heart-of-Centro home is value priced to reflect both the current market conditions, as well as allowing room for the cost of a new owner’s upgrades. Bring your tear-sheets from Architectural Digest and shape them to reality in your new Centro estate, only steps from the Jardin!
