This suburban village next door to Coral Gables is one of Miami’s most desirable neighborhoods. Slightly removed from the hectic pace of Miami, this quiet community is perfect for families. Pinecrest is a tight-knit village where families tend to stay for decades. It first received recognition when Railroad tycoon Henry Flagler used the area as a staging ground while building the Overseas Railroad. Then, in the 1930s Franz and Louise Scherr developed the iconic Parrot Jungle, a bird refuge where birds could roam free and the public could visit and learn about the birds, plants and trees. Parrot Jungle has since relocated to Miami Beach and the beautiful grounds are now Pinecrest Gardens, Community Center and Public Library. Here, residents can exercise in the fitness center, take stimulating classes, attend concerts and art shows, watch the kids play soccer or come to the weekly Farmer’s Market. Every Sunday locals gather to shop for artisan baked goods, organic produce, herbs and spices or simply meet up with friends and catch up on local news.
The homes date back to the 1930s and range from single story ranch homes to grand estates on lushly landscaped acre lots. The architectural style is eclectic and includes Mediterranean, Colonial, Modern, Key West and Coastal Contemporary. The vibrant flowers, mature green foliage and towering oak trees create uniformity throughout the neighborhood. However, the main reason people live in Pinecrest is the schools. The public schools are “A rated” and consistently receive top rankings and recognition. The private schools are amongst the best in the nation. Incorporated in 1996, it now has a well-regarded municipality including its own parks, People Mover Shuttle, fire and police departments. In Pinecrest you have the best of all worlds: small town charm combined with the international flavor and sophistication of Miami.
