Miami Shores Real Estate
Miami Shores is a small suburban neighborhood centrally located just minutes from Downtown Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach. Its considered a secret gem that few people know about. Miami Shores Real Estate ranges from Luxury Bayfront homes, to 1920s historic architecture. Activities include Golf, Tennis, a great community center and field house offering all kinds of sports and activities for all ages.
Miami Shores was developed in the early 1920s at the same time as Coral Gables by The Shoreland Company. Its urban plan includes tree-lined streets, large setbacks, alleyways or service roads as well as a downtown commercial area which is known as “downtown Miami Shores”. With its own extremely efficient police force, its own government building or Village Hall, as well as library, there’s nothing Miami Shores can’t offer.
Schools in Miami Shores include Miami Shores Elementary, Miami Country Day School, St. Rose of Lima School, Miami Shores Presbyterian pre-school, Baptist pre-school, Doctors Charter Middle and High School, and Barry University to name a few. Miami Shores is a neighborhood where your neighbors have your keys and kids play on the streets, a true village beautiful.
