At 1011 Michigan Ave. in the heart of South Beach — and not far from my own apartment, incidentally — there’s an apartment for sale in a beautifully restored Art Deco building. Villa Lucca is the definition of affordable luxury. And unit #3 is its latest listing, coming in with its gorgeous hardwood floors and fancy appliances for a cool $345,000 (asking). For a one-bedroom in a quiet neighborhood on the Beach, that’s a heck of a good deal.
Just check out the photos. You’ll see the light-colored floors, which I think are perfect because they don’t suck up too much of the bright Florida sun. Then there are the surprising touches of artistic flare, like the brightly painted orange interior doors. There’s also a deco fireplace and windows on two sides because it’s a corner unit. (Who doesn’t love a corner unit?) Plus, the impact windows are brand new and there’s a new marble bath.
Residents enjoy gated parking and a peaceful garden which was part of the original 1925 Villa Lucca property. In 2008, the whole building underwent a major renovation that brought in the Brazilian cherry wood flooring and the Toto and Kohler fixtures. It’s really something you need to see for yourself.
Villa Lucca is classic South Beach. Get it while you still can. Just give me a call if you’d like to go see it or if you have any questions about the property. My number is 305-695-8257.
