The Enchanting Enclave of Cocoplum | The Best of Coral Gables Real Estate Communities
Conveniently located along Biscayne Bay in Coral Gables, the gated community of Cocoplum beautifully marries natural beauty with luxurious living. Cocoplum is an exclusive and highly secure gated community, perfect for those looking to make South Florida their full-time home.
Previously owned by the Deering family, George Merrick acquired the bayfront property now known as Cocoplum in December 1925. A real estate developer, Merrick is touted as the developer of the city of Coral Gables. Merrick’s accomplishments include establishing the University of Miami, building South Dixie Highway (US1) and developing the beautiful Biltmore Hotel. Among his accomplishments is the development of the beautiful community of Cocoplum, complete with bayfront properties and tree-lined drives.
Located only minutes away from Coconut Grove, and just east of Old Cutler Road, Cocoplum’s desirable location add to its allure in being one of the most coveted communities in Miami.
Three hundred and two estate homes lie within the three hundred and forty-five acres of Cocoplum. The waterfront neighborhood is made up of four residential islands; Isla Dorada, Isla Marina and Bahia Vista. The neighborhood is also divided into phases, with Cocoplum being the Westernmost area, moving along to Islands of Cocoplum and Tahiti Beach lying along the Eastmost side of the neighborhood.
This luxurious community boasts lush landscaping and stunning waterfront homes with views that take your breath away. The exquisite residences situated on large lot sizes draw residents from all over the world.
The prestigious enclave offers top-of-the-line amenities including a clubhouse, a playground, tennis courts, fitness facilities, a yacht club and marina and perfectly manicured streets. Offering 24-hour security, Cocoplum emphasizes privacy and security as an absolute priority for its exclusive homeowners.
Cocoplum real estate includes plenty of waterfront homes that are perfect for boating and water sports enthusiasts. The canals of this community lead directly to the stunning Biscayne Bay for some great outings.
The homes in this area are located on large lots and so it is a very private community. The sizes range from 2800 to 11,500 Sq.ft and the lots are around 12,000 to 46,000 Sq.ft.
The homeowner’s Association has broken up the community into 2 sections – Phase 1 & 2
Cocoplum Phase 1 : Phase 1 houses approximately 140 homes. Cut off right at the first canal on the eastern side, the properties are located directly east of the Old Cultler Rd.
Cocoplum Phase 2: Part of the Cocoplum’s Homeowner’s association, this phase is the larger of the two, encompassing around 300 homes, 29 of which are located on the Tahiti Beach. A few homes in this community have expanded to occupy more lots.
Between these two phases, approximately 50% of the homes in the enclave are situated on the water. These waterfront homes are right at the top of the luxury market and are known to appreciate in value extremely well.
Schools Another major advantage of Cocoplum is its convenient location to some of the best public and private schools in Miami. Cocoplum’s public school district is excellent with Sunset Elementary School, Ponce de Leon Middle School and Coral Gables Senior High School. Sunset Elementary is widely known for its International Studies and Magnet Programs and ranks as one of the top ten elementary schools in Florida.
Cocoplum is very close to some of the best private schools in Miami including Ransom Everglades, Gulliver Preparatory, Carrollton School of The Sacred Heart, Lourdes Academy, Temple Beth Am, Westminster Christian and Palmer Trinity. For older students, the University of Miami, established by Cocoplum developer George Merrick, is just a five minute drive away.
