Looking for Single Family Home that would be a close commute to the Key Biscayne are on a daily basis. We are looking for a home that would be relatively newer from year 2000 and up. Thought of the Brickell area but all that I find here is Condos. Can anyone suggest any communities?

Thanks

You should look at the "Roads" area directly SW of Brickell, lots of neat, single family homes built form the 1920's to the 1950's in that area. Look directly west of Coral Way and SW 26th Rd. Also, Coconut Grove is a couple miles south on US-1.

I thought the OP said year 2000 and up. Does that sound like 1920's or 1950's ??

I don't think the Roads area has too many newer homes. I can't think of any areas close to Key Biscayne that are newer and not condos. You may find the oddball new construction on a lot that had an older home before but the homes around it wouldn't be so new, albeit many may have been gutted and remodeled.

Oh my god!!! You won't find whole streets filled with new homes anywhere near Brickell. The ones that 'look' newer were most likely renovated.

Yes, vp is correct. That area of Miami is very old and realtors had to settle with building condos (no space available) The newer communities are always gonna be on the west side of the County with long commutes (Doral, Kendall, Miami Lakes, Pembroke Pines etc)

No new home communities there, but there are new homes sprinkled throughout all the surrounding communities. How far are you willing to be from Brickell ? Depending on your budget you could check Baypoint, Morningside, Belle Meade, Miami Shores to the North, or Coral Gables & Coconut Grove in the South.

While you won't find a community of new homes, builders are demolishing older homes in the area and building brand-new homes in Silver Bluff and Shenandoah. I routinely drive by one being built in the Roads as well.

Anywhere there's construction dating from before the 1950s, there's a small percentage of homes being razed and rebuilt. A lot of the original homes were built with crawl spaces, and unless someone has been vigilant in keeping termites out, they may need major work.

Not sure why this thread was resurrected but yeah, the closest is The Roads where you might find a few new constructions sprinkled in with the older homes that have been renovated.


The Roads is so close to Brickell though that it is almost as if it was the residential extension of it. It's one of my favorite neighborhoods with regards to location and general aesthetic.
