Coral Gables

Seth's Guide To Coral Gables

Known as "The City Beautiful," Coral Gables is a premier destination for luxury lifestyle seekers. With its Mediterranean-inspired architecture, upscale shops and restaurants, and pristine golf courses, this city  is a picturesque and exclusive enclave that exudes elegance and sophistication. From its historic landmarks to its tree-lined streets, this affluent neighborhood is a true gem for those who appreciate the finer things in life.

Some of Miami’s most exquisite neighborhoods and homes can be found in Coral Gables. It’s also central to some our finest private schools. There are very few luxury condos  based on local density, though the residential market and gated communities here balance that out quite nicely. Values have gone up well into the double digits since 2020, as we’ve seen many families flock to this neighborhood from out of state. If you get the chance to bike or drive into Gables Estates and Old Cutler Bay (the streets are public, despite the gatehouses at the entries), you can see what we’re talking about. Journey’s End is one of our favorite hidden communities, though there you’ll need to be on an access list. Cocoplum is a worthwhile mention, albeit more dense. That said, one of Miami’s most coveted locations, “Tahiti Beach” is within Cocoplums gates.
