Is this property in jeopardy of demolition?Mansion on the Bluff
Located on the corner of SW 17 Avenue and South Bayshore Drive, this iconic house is well known to many residents for different reasons. Built in 1915, the partial coral rock 2 story, 4,500 sq ft house, has 4 bedrooms, 4 baths, a library and sits on a scalene triangle shaped lot of approx. 24,000 sq ft. It is a grand house. Some regard it as notorious after its then-owner was murdered in his master bedroom in 1986. A waiver notification letter has been sent by the City of Miami Zoning Office stating the present owner is “requesting partial demolition of existing structures”. The Coconut Grove Village Council has requested additional information as to the areas of the proposed demolition and asked if these changes would be visible from the street. My goal is to share with you the City’s response. It’s a beautiful historic property and we hope it stays with us. 🦚🌴
