Jetson's House sold for $1.5M

By
Real Estate Agent with Beachfront Realty 3220434

Morningside's ( Northeast Miami) fabulous and iconic Jetsons House has sold for $1.5 million to a buyer who apparently loves the design and the history and wants to restore it, NOT tear it down. It's a great save for a house that is not historically designated. Easy prey for demolition due to  its fairly small size and lack of accouterments of contemporary life that buyers like/need today. Nicknamed the Jetsons House because of its appearance, the house was designed by an important Miami architect of the mid-century period, Rufus Nims, and is meant to be a subtropical modernism that embraces an architecture suitable to the climate in a modernist form. Its elevated living floor with floor to ceiling windows was designed to capture the bay breeze.

the home desperately needs some love and a skilled eye to restore it to its former glory.

Kind of a cool house, I love it.  I can see why it's called the Jetson's House.

I am so happy somebody bought this home to restore it! It is definitely a unique home. I have never seen anything like it. Really love the floor to ceiling windows.

Marco - That looks like a pretty cool home, and if someone does a good job restoring it, I think it will be fantastic. I love when old, unique, homes are restored and not destroyed.

I'm glad the buyer is planning on restoring it.  There are some homes that have historic value.  Others may fall in a grey area, that could go either way.

Marco, this is an interesting looking home, and glad the new buyer will not tear it down.   Wonder what they will do on the interior?

As they say, you can't judge a book by its cover. I think the inside work will be worth every penny of this beautiful and attractive home in beautiful Northeast Miami!!!

What an exciting project!  Plenty of jetson fans out there and the buyer certainly has an eye for retro yesteryear!

Hope the new owner doesn't have too many "Roh, roh!" moments as they restore the home. And who knows, we're probably not too far off from a real Rosie.

Hi Scott Seaton Jr. Bourbonnais Kankakee IL Home Inspector I bet you do!

Howdy Joan Cox the interiors now have to be taken down to bare. The 70's & 80's were not good to her
