Florida Travel + Life magazine featured the property in August 2008, commenting that, “the striking, columned Georgian Colonial is so steeped in Southern charm you can almost smell the magnolias.”
This stunning home (which I have dubbed the “pink palace”) is located just south of downtown Miami in beautiful Coral Gables, or simply "The Gables" as it's known to natives. Also known as the “City Beautiful,” The Gables is known for its lush green avenues beautiful landscaping, exceptional architecture and historic homes, such as this masterpiece.
The “pink palace” is located on one of the most beautiful of all the beautiful streets in The Gables, overlooking the Riviera Golf Club. It features a rose garden and formal terrace with a fountain and adjoining carriage house. But, most importantly, it features some of the most beautifully decorated rooms I have ever laid eyes upon, designed by Miami-based interior designer Bob Biederman.
In the husband’s office, a calming hue of green swathes the walls, where a Louis XVI writing table from France, circa 1925, serves as a desk. The oil painting is by Maria Reyes Jones.
Serenity prevails in the master suite with a gray-blue and camel color scheme, providing a traditional and soothing feel. Biederman chose luxurious fabrics in tone-on-tone camel patterns. A hand-loomed area rug defines the Louis J. Solomon bed and Rose Tarlow bedside table.
