Villa de Banyan
Coral Gables in the 1940's... a true American Riviera whose highlights included the glamorous Biltmore Hotel, the exotic Venetian Pool, the glorious Miracle Mile... and Villa de Banyan, an exceptional property located at 717 University Drive.
This home was built at a time when quality construction was in its heyday. Rooms were grand, ceilings were high, and moldings and fine details were de rigueur. It was and is still today, a neighborhood of lush tropical trees, sheltering banyans and ancient oaks. One can still sit in the balmy breeze and think back to the days of 1940's opulence, Clark Gable and genteel living.
At over 5,000 square feet and standing on over half an acre, Villa de Banyan is a home built for fine living. With 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths, it has ample space and all the modern conveniences for a 21st century family to spread out and experience true South Florida living. A lovely courtyard and lush pool/patio area suggest long, lazy afternoons with grace and style in a perfect tropic setting.
Gated, with dual entries on University and Monserrate this home is close to all the modern amenities of the City Beautiful. But don't let the address fool you -- this home is truly an oasis in the middle of a metropolitan city.
