Journey's End -- A Tropical Oasis in Coral Gables

Located in South Coral Gables adjacent to some of the most exclusive homes in all Miami-Dade County is the neighborhood of Journey’s End.  This small enclave of only 18 homes, most of which are waterfront properties, offer the most beautiful landscaped estates for the most discerning and private home owners. 

Journey’s End is situated in a part of Coral Gables that is home to luxury estate neighborhoods.  Adjacent to the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and Matheson Hammock State Park, this very exclusive neighborhood is quiet and secluded offering maximum privacy and security. 

Journey’s End is within a very short drive to Historic Coconut Grove and Coral Gable’s famed Miracle Mile.  There, residents enjoy fine dining and culture as well as shopping in some of the most chic boutiques.   Coral Gables is a very special place where residents and visitors are assured the certain level of luxury in a true South Florida lifestyle.

The Neighborhood
Just like the other exclusive neighborhoods in the immediate vicinity, Journey’s End is gated with 24-hour security.  Many of the homes are waterfront homes on spectacularly beautiful lots with tropical foliage and perfect landscaping.   While there is a private, neighborhood marina, many of the waterfront estates feature private docks some of which accommodate mega-yachts and multiple vessels.   Landscaping is absolutely picture-perfect and provides a tranquil and serene environment.

Although Journey’s End homes are, for the most part about 15 to 20 years old, many have been renovated or remodeled to feature the most modern updates.  They are gracious in size topping 10,000 or more square feet and offer luxury interior and exterior finishes.  Inside each home, the residents enjoy large rooms with expansive ceilings, designer finishes, unobstructed views of foliage and/or water, chef-worthy kitchens with granite or other high end counter tops, state of the art stainless steel appliances and so much more.  Outside, large one to two-acre lots feature extravagant lawns that accommodate beautiful swimming pools and extensive patios with outdoor living and kitchen areas.  Waterfront homes feature large, sturdy docks on canals that have direct access to Biscayne Bay with no bridges.  

Real Estate Information
Because Journey’s End is such an affluent neighborhood, potential buyers can expect to see list prices starting in the millions.  In fact, currently, there are four Journey’s End homes on the market with list prices from just under $4.4 million to over $10 million.  In 2012, the average sale price for single family homes in the same area was about $3.8 million.  For potential buyers of homes in Journey’s End, price is not as much a factor as the privacy and exclusivity of the neighborhood which puts it at the top of the list with these considerations.

Coral Gables Most Elite
Some of Coral Gable’s most elite residents live in Journey’s End.  In fact, some of Miami’s most famous residents have homes throughout the neighborhoods surrounding Journey’s End.  It is a gracious community that offers privacy, luxury amenities and a lifestyle that is reserved for the most elite of South Florida.
