History

Most of our buyers want Coconut Grove and only the Grove. Why?
The "Grove" is beautiful: imagine winding narrow streets where homes are nestled under lush and gorgeous vegetation.

Located south of Brickell, and east of Coral Gables, Coconut Grove is the oldest neighborhood of Miami. With age comes beauty, serenity, character, and a rich history. Coconut Grove, which was sometimes spelled Cocoanut Grove, was established in 1925 an encompassed all of modern day Coconut Grove and parts of a town called Silver Bluff. The city had several inhabitants in the early 20th century, including but not limited to, Northeast Americans, British, and white Bahamians. These early settlers helped contribute to the diversity of people, art, and culture that you see in Coconut Grove today. The first hotel, at the time named Bay View Inn but later known as the Peacock Inn, was built in 1882 and was the reason for the first black settlers. Bahamian workers came to Coconut Grove in the 1880s to work on the hotel and establish a new lifestyle. They helped to make the Peacock Inn one of the most beautiful hotels in all of South Florida. Today, this property is an urban park, equipped with a baseball field, basketball court, and tennis courts.

The Grove is centrally located: minutes from Downtown, the beaches and the airport.
 The Grove is a village: cafes are waiting for you to do great "people watching" any day of the week. You can walk to do your shopping.
The Grove sits along the gorgeous Biscayne Bay: your boat will never be far away from your front door.
 
The Grove is a life style: it is tropical chic- elegant but relaxed! The Grove loves nature, its trees and is very pet friendly.
The Grove loves to celebrate and have fun: The King Mango Strut, the Goombay Festival, the February Art Show, and the Orange Bowl Regatta delight everyone.
The Grove is also very tranquil: 14 Parks, the marinas, and the quiet tucked away streets allow relaxing strolls.
The Grove has already welcomed many celebrities. We won't name them to respect their privacy and serenity. Marjory Stoneman Douglas, a famous activist and key figure in the creation of Everglades a National Park, lived on  Stewart Avenue in South Coconut Grove.
To understand Coconut Grove, you must know its history. It is a love story, many love stories!
Until the late 1870, the Seminole represented the majority of residents along Biscayne Bay. Soon after, some now-famous people moved in. It was already a very international crowd.....let's name some of them:
Two Englishmen, Jack Peacock and his brother, opened the first hotel in 1882, the Peacock Inn. By then two Bahamian families had already become homesteaders in Coconut Grove: the Pents and the Frows. The Peacock Inn attracted a large number of visitors, many of whom stayed. Ralph Munroe is one of them. William Deering and William Jennings Bryan also fell in love with Coconut Grove. David Fairchild made the Kampong on Douglas Road his permanent home. The Kampong became one of the five gardens of the National Tropical Botanical Garden (the other four are in Hawaii!). Coconut Grove owes its name to Dr. Horace Porter who founded the first post office in 1874 and called it "Cocoanut Grove".
If you are already a "Grovite", we know why you love the Grove!
Come live in Coconut Grove’s beauty, its unique atmosphere and its lifestyle.
 If you want to settle in Coconut Grove, we will find you the right property. Call us.
