King’s Bay, a beautiful and quiet gated community in the southern part of the City of Coral Gables, is a treasured neighborhood. Lani Kahn Drody and Lauren Dowlen of Lowell International Realty are proud to introduce our newest listing, 6230 Mitchell Drive (otherwise known as SW 144 Street). This extraordinary luxury home is nestled a block from the community marina and for the boater, offers easy access to the Bay. Featuring 5 bedrooms and 5 and one-half baths, this spectacular property allows for “easy, breezy living” as it caters to the indoor/outdoor living you crave.

According to South Florida history, the road that is SW 144 Street also became known as “Mitchell Drive” around 1925. Then-County Commissioner Dan Killian wanted to honor the Mitchell family who had been pioneers in the area since 1896. Even after Mitchell Drive claimed its name, the Mitchell family continued to influence South Florida with their family business “Mitchell’s Mangos.” At one point the plantation claimed 75% of the mango industry in America.

The neighborhood has grown slowly since the 1970’s, and thus retains an idealistic suburban feel. Walking to the marina and through the streets you can hear the breeze in the palms and sea grape trees. And yet within minutes of leaving the gates you find yourself in the heart of Pinecrest, Palmetto Bay, South Miami and Coral Gables. Wonderful schools, both public and private, are very close by. Coral Gables annexed the neighborhood in 2010 and residents enjoy the amenities that come with being a part of the City Beautiful.

This home has been wonderfully maintained and updated since it was built in 1970. The gorgeous formal foyer opens to a living area with charming wood beams and wood trim. The large family room and kitchen open to the enormous pool patio for a true tropical lifestyle. A formal dining room and laundry room are also found on the first floor.

A large master suite on the first floor features space for a home gym or office. The master bath includes a sauna, well-known for promoting good health and relaxation. The second floor includes three spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms and a bonus space for a playroom, game room or even a library.

A true bonus for this property are two two-car garages, one of which is air-conditioned and features a well-appointed den with a wet bar, wine storage and full bathroom. Perfect for the discerning car enthusiast to enjoy being close to their valuables!
