This house is on one of the largest parcels of land– just over 3 acres– within the gated community of Gables Estates. The property has 750 feet of water frontage, a private beach and room for a yacht up to 150 feet. The tennis court, pictured above, is grandfathered in so can remain in place once the renovation project begins.
The property is owned by an LLC and the name of the buyer has not been disclosed. According to records the listing was represented by Liz Hogan of Compass and the buyer was represented by Maurice Boschetti of BH Realty. Boschetti is also the listing agent for the $55 million home mentioned above as the current highest-priced listing for Coral Gables.
