Love this cute little Cape Dutch style house in Coral Gables, Florida recently restored by architecture firm Cure and Penabad. The home was built in the 1920s; it was originally designed by famed architect Marion Sims Wyeth who also designed the Florida Governor’s mansion and Mar-A-Lago the famed Palm Beach estate now owned by Donald Trump. This south of Miami home is one of five that Wyeth apparently designed to resemble farm houses built by Dutch colonists in Capetown South Africa in the 18th century.
This house is around 2000 square feet, 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. It was completely renovated and restored to highlight its original charm.
Such a sweet house I think. Love the dark trimmed windows, ceilings and floors that starkly contrast against the white walls. Also love the curves and accents in the roof line and doorways.
This home is not for sale…but I checked the real estate estimate sites and they say it would sell for about $800,000 if put on the market now. This would be a very cute Florida getaway home…don’t you think.
