Welcome to Pineapple Paradise! You'll feel like you've jet-setted to Palm Springs on vacation, yet you'll appreciate that this architectural gem was designed and built as the personal residence of Jerome Schilling, an associate in the Igor Polevitzky architecture firm, South Florida's most renowned tropical modernist architects. Built in 1949, this home is a remarkable example of mid-century modern "tropotype" design, which responds to its lush tropical environment creating a seamless transition of luxurious indoor-outdoor living, with numerous noteworthy features: passive cooling design created by extended overhangs to shield sunshine and tropical rains; an advanced two-story mesh-screened loggia which provides relaxation and breathability to the open living-dining spaces through connected sliding glass wall panels; twenty iconic kaleidoscopic north-facing aperture windows for privacy and colorful intrigue from the street; and a tucked away rear den adjacent to the kitchen with a signature exterior pipe-railing spiral staircase leading to a sunset rooftop terrace overlooking the expansive pool and lush gardens. Modern flexible living, with three bedrooms in the main house and bonus office-exercise-guest room, plus a detached guest suite with full bath. Recent updates include: newer roof, new septic, new fence, master bath; impact windows-doors; multi-zone AC systems; and more. Located east of Biscayne Boulevard in a non-flood zone in Miami Shores' most desirable neighborhood, this is a great opportunity to make this most unique personal residence your own personal masterpiece!
