Sunrise Harbour - Coral Gables

Coral Gables is one of Miami-Dade's most luxurious cities.  Several neighborhoods like Sunrise Harbour take this luxury to a new level.  As one of the exclusive gated communities, it is filled with gracious estate-size homes.  Sunrise Harbour is a neighborhood that houses only about 80 homes and is an ideal neighborhood for families seeking larger homes in a tranquil location.  The landscaping around the beautiful homes and throughout the neighborhood features lush and tropical trees and plants that are native to this South Florida and offer a true feeling of living in paradise.  

Sunrise Harbour Locale
Situated in the northern portion of Coral Gables, known as "North Gables," Sunrise Harbour is surrounded by other exclusive neighborhoods like Gables Estates, Snapper Creek Lake, Cocoplum, Tahiti Beach, and others.   It is in close proximity to Coconut Grove and all it has to offer as well as well-known sites such as the famed Coral Gable’s Miracle Mile, Fairchild Botanical Gardens, Vizcaya Museum and the area's top public and private schools.  Sunrise Harbour is only a 15-minute drive from Brickell and the Design District and a 30-minute drive from Miami International Airport and the Miami beaches.  

Sunrise Harbour Highlights
Sunrise Harbour features several streets each flanked by deep and wide canals that offer easy access into Biscayne Bay with no bridges.  In fact, the homes situated at the end of the streets face out onto Biscayne Bay.  With only waterfront homes, most feature large docks that accommodate mega yachts and multiple vessels as most homeowners enjoy living on the water and choose to live in Sunrise Harbour because of its location.  This small and close-knit community enjoys the security and safety of living in a gated community that is a little off the beaten path.  

Sunrise Harbour homes offer amenities expected in homes of this caliber.  As an older neighborhood with homes built as early as the late 1960s and early 1970s, it is not uncommon for properties to be purchased only to demolish the current home in order to build a new estate size home with many amenities.  Older homes offer a classic "Florida-style" appeal in their architecture but, for the most part, have been updated or remodeled inside to include gourmet kitchens and high-end fixtures and finishes.  Additionally, residents make the most out of life in such a glamorous and sophisticated neighborhood with extensive outdoor living areas that include outdoor kitchens and resort-like pool areas that open up to the beautiful panoramic views of the Bay.  

With only about 80 homes in Sunrise Harbour, there are never more than a handful of homes for sale at any given point in time.  Home values range from about $1.5 million to over $10 million mainly depending on the location, size and condition of the homes, and the views.  Currently, there are five Sunrise Harbour properties for sale with list prices falling between about $2.4 million and almost $9 million.  One property is listed for sale at just under $6 million and is a point lot facing out onto Biscayne Bay.  Because the home is much older and dated, the list price is based primarily on the value of the lot.  

sunrise-harbour-real-estateOver the past six months, six homes have sold with sale prices between $2 million and just over $4.1 million.  Most homes take about six months to sell on average but because of the size and amounts paid for each home, this is not uncommon.   

A Perfect Coral Gables Neighborhood
When it comes to looking at Coral Gables real estate, Sunrise Harbour is a perfect Coral Gables neighborhood.  It exudes all the class and grace that one at this level must have without the pretense that is found elsewhere throughout the area.  For those seeking an elite community with the safety of being gated and the tranquility of being set back away from all the excitement for which the area is known, Sunrise Harbour real estate meets and exceeds the expectations of anyone interested in this kind of property.
