George Merrick was the founder of the City Of Coral Gables back in the early 1900’s. His original architectural plan for Coral Gables included Spanish and then Mediterranean style homes. However he later expanded his vision to include 7 “villages” scattered all over the city which would lure northerners with their unique architectural style. The 7 villages include: The French Normandy Village, The Chinese Village, The Pioneer Village, The Italian Village, French City Village, French Country Village and lastly the Dutch South African Village. Homes that are located in these communities are highly desirable and certainly sell for a premium compared to similar homes in their areas.
The residence located at 1017 Hardee Road in the French Country Village has recently sold for $1,775,000 or $528.00/square foot. The home offered 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths on a 5,000 square foot lot. Built in 1925, the home had been restored to perfection. Broker was Grove Properties.
