Old Cutler Bay: Exclusive Coral Gables Waterfront Address

Old Cutler Bay has something to offer even the most discerning seeker of Coral Gables real estate. A waterfront community established in the 1960s, this excusive enclave is comprised of just 136 estate-type properties that range from $2 to $9 million. A secure and secluded niche within walking distance of Miami’s many beautiful beaches, top shopping, dining and entertainment locales, Old Cutler Bay is a safe haven with winding canals and direct access to the alluring waters of both Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

Situated one block south of Kendall Drive on Old Cutler Road, Old Cutler Bay is just blocks from three prime visitor attractions: Matheson Hammock Park & Marina, the historic Deering Estate and the lushly beautiful Fairchild Tropical Gardens. For those interested, the secure waterfront properties at Old Cutler Bay are highly desirable.

Boating enthusiasts will love the private boat docks with “no bridges” available at many of the Old Cutler Bay homes, and lovers of nature walks and biking will adore the many stunning trails that abound throughout this gated, secure 145 acre-community.

For those seeking to buy Coral Gables real estate, homes in Old Cutler Bay offer the quintessence of luxury family living. Amenities include: access to the best public and private schools, grandiose swimming pools, large terraces and balconies and panoramic waterfront views as well as a proximity to many key areas such as Pinecrest, Coconut Grove, Brickell Avenue and Miami Beach.

Current Coral Gables properties for sale in  in this area range from high $2 million to $9 million with the typical square footage between 5,500 - 8,000 square feet. $3.5 million can get you a five bedroom and four bath at $618 per square foot.

The City Beautiful as it was once dubbed, is renowned for its reverence for and dedication to preserving the past, such as is evidenced by the Venetian Pool and the classic Biltmore Hotel. Its dazzling architecture combines the past with contemporary flourishes and designs.

In this affluent enclave the past graciously blends with the present to create magnificent and unique homes. Old Cutler Bay is very proud of its green initiative, which promotes community responsibility. The Green Corridor and PACE Program (Properly Assessed Clean Energy) began as local projects but the effects were so successful that the state of Florida has sat up and taken notice. 

PACE is designed to loan money to property owners (they must pay it back) so that they can purchase solar panels, insulation, wind generators or shutters for their homes. The Green Corridor covers the areas of Cutler Bay, Coral Gables, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest, and South Miami.

Preserving the past with an eye on the future is what Old Cutler Bay is all about. If you can afford a luxury waterfront home, consider this lovely secluded community for your children and your children’s children.
