Escape the bustle and urban rush of Miami to its nearby neighbor, The Village of Pinecrest, a tree laden treasure trove of homes clustered on a high pine ridge twenty minutes to the southwest. It is little wonder that commuting Miamians were among the first to discover the pleasures of this area decades ago as they were quick to savor its slower paced tropical pleasures and open landscapes. The miracle of large, free standing land plots that have not been sliced up into the city density nearby still exist here today, along with the greater miracle of a fully functioning city hall, expansive parks, and a public school system second to none in the southeast of Florida. If you like the idea of plenty of land, being able to leisurely stroll your neighborhood, and excellent security, then you will love what Pinecrest is today.
There are precious few places in all of Florida where you can enjoy all of the amenities of a modern village combined with the building quality of a Hollub Homes’ residence. Along with the tropical beauty of South Florida and our very sunny climate comes the occasional hurricane. Although they rarely arrive to Miami and you have days of advanced notice, it is ever so nice to know that your Hollub Home is built to exceed the very strict building code designed with these maximum events in mind. Whether you have a storm or an outage, whenever you lose electrical power from FPL, it is a mere second before the whole house generator has all the systems fully functional again. Enough about beauty, security, and back up generators….let’s talk about this great house.
From the driveway you already get the feeling that there is a 10, 000 square foot Mediterranean fortress of quality standing in front of you. The layering of stonework, the attention to detail in the architecture, and the quality level of construction are solid clues that this is not your typical Florida developer house. The magnificent entry doors welcome you to a broad, expansive living room and fireplace which flows calmly into a modern lifestyle kitchen and breakfast area- all of which open into the amazing landscape of an enormous backyard and sculptural pool. Only from the huge entertainment terraces can you get the sense of the size of this lot, nearly 70,000 square feet. From the open kitchen one can access a formal naturally-lighted dining room either through the hallway or through a butler’s set up pantry for larger, more formal entertaining. A full servants quarters exists nearby, along with full laundry, and guest powder room. On the other side of the main floor is a huge master suite with warm wood floors and excellent views of the gardens and the pool. In this suite is separate his and hers baths, simply amazing closets, and the bedroom from heaven.
On the second level and the landing of the stairs is a very large game room and entertainment den for the enjoyment of the lucky guests upstairs. Here four large bedrooms with individual ensuite baths peacefully co-exist. One of these could easily convert to a media room if you feel the enormous den is somehow not for “shared” theater.
A step beyond the main house is the stuff of dreams for car collectors, space for six cars away from the elements. If you have not quite built up your car collection just yet, one of these charming buildings could be converted to a full on gym or an “in laws” quarters. Personally I’d be tempted to build somewhere else on those 70,000 square feet of lands for the in laws if they were here for the winter and quickly buy a few more antique cars…
