Welcome to the Coconut Grove Riviera
There is a rather charming gated community of ten homes on South Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove named Longview Villas. The property upon which the Longview Villas sit was originally the philanthropist WT Grant’s Estate. It was donated to the University of Miami for a University President’s residence and remained as a UM property until 1974. The two-story villas were built in in 1980. I know we are not in Cap d’Antibes or Monaco but driving up this driveway definitely reminds me of the South of France.
I would like to introduce you to one of the villas: Number Seven. This is now the largest villa having been improved and enlarged through several renovations, in fact a new roof is about to be installed as I write. Prior to that all bathrooms were updated and all windows and doors were changed to impact glass in 2006; as well as being updated additional space was added to the kitchen at that time.
Let’s get down to the details:
You can do some serious laps in the 60-foot community pool and improve your game on the tennis court without leaving the gate.
