Rare Kiehnel & Elliott-Designed Home Hits the Market for $3.299MThe home is one of few residential designs by the famed architects
COCONUT GROVE, FL (August 23, 2016) — A 1920s home designed by famed South Florida design firm Kiehnel & Elliott, has hit the market in Coconut Grove for $3.299 million. Known for such iconic structures as El Jardin, now the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, and the Coconut Grove Playhouse, the firm’s signature Mediterranean Revival and Art Deco designs are well-known throughout South Florida. Also known as La Solana, this home is located at 3670 Hibiscus Street and has been co-listed by Laura Mullaney and Jane Gomez-Mena of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s Coral Gables office.
“La Solana has been in the same family since 1965 and has been meticulously cared for,” said Laura Mullaney.
Jane Gomez-Mena added, “The architecture stands out against the other Mediterranean Revival homes in the area and gives it an original but warm character.”
The uniquely designed home follows a classic Palladian villa style with Arabic Moorish ornamentation, as seen in its horseshoe arches and decorative tile. La Solana offers nearly 5,000 square feet of living space, four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and a guest house with two bedrooms and one bathroom. Unique luxury features include:
- Gated property with hand-chiseled Turkish travertine driveway
- Grotto-like front door with a horseshoe arched entry
- Arched windows and doors throughout the main level
- Two-bedroom guest suite with a private entrance overlooking the garden and pool, including a living/dining area and kitchen
- Large pool surrounded by avocado, lime, banana and grapefruit trees
A spacious living room features ornate, hand-carved accents throughout. Arched windows let in natural light and highlight the elaborate tile work, fireplace and hand-detailed wood beam ceiling. The dining room features the same tile work and arched windows, while showcasing Moorish style crown molding.
