In the heart of Miami, less than two blocks away from towers in three different directions, this jungle compound at 87 SW 18th Road is tucked into a quiet corner off South Miami Avenue. A double lot property, with a historic 1937 main house, modern guest house, vintage Airstream trailer in the yard (unfortunately interior photos of the Airstream aren't provided), and luscious pool, it hit the market a few days ago for $1.45 million.
The house has three bedrooms, 2 baths, and 1,600 square feet of living space. That's $803 per foot. Active single family home listings in the South Miami Avenue neighborhood average about $772 a square foot, while those in a half mile radius, which includes some of the neighboring Roads neighborhood come in at a similar $741 (recorded sales in the last year averaged $421 per square foot, but those include single family homes and condos). Of course, in both the Roads and South Miami Avenue areas, the average lot is significantly smaller, and the average home significantly larger.
