For the first time, 9500 Old Cutler Road in Coral Gables is available for purchase! This amazing property is blessed with a rare natural Florida hardwood hammock and rain forest! Venerable trees such as the “strangler fig” with a huge trunk system and canopy as well as numerous centuries old live oak trees laden with air plants and flowering “golden shower” and “jacaranda” trees, truly exquisite natural foliage that would be impossible to replicate by even the most dedicated landscape artist!
Originally built in 1955, this home has a solid core of Dade County Pine and was remodeled by the renowned architect Charles Harrison Pawley. Working with incredible creative insight, this home was designed in celebration of the outdoors with Pawley’s signature mahogany French, louvered doors and hurricane impact glass ceilings throughout which capture and marry the natural landscape as part of the interior design. Solid oak flooring throughout and a teak kitchen add to the native feel of this property and well as the fireplace mantle which was made from the Florida Key’s “keystone”fossiliferous lime stone slabs! This home and property is truly a hidden treasure!
