[dropcap]O[/dropcap]NE Sotheby’s International Realty, South Florida’s luxury real estate leader, has been named the exclusive sales representative for The Setting. The premier residential enclave of five luxury homes in South Miami, being developed by AJP Ventures, will be represented by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty’s team, The Jill Penman Group.
Designed by award-winning Miami architect Roney Mateu of MATEU Architecture, The Setting will introduce a modern motif to the quaint neighborhood of South Miami. Priced from $1.7 million to $2.1 million, the single-family homes, ranging from 3,432 to 4,757 square feet, will be situated on enclosed 15,000-square-foot lots and will be comprised of four to six-bedrooms. Offering a functional yet unique design, each home will exude a distinct signature, while sharing luxury details and plush amenities, including a pool and/or spa, two-car garage and the finest fixtures and finishes.
Mateu, whose firm was named the 2012 “Architecture Firm of the Year” by the Miami Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, designed each home with a unique, contemporary feel, while integrating the surrounding environment. The residences will create distinctive dwellings that blend with the natural, lush backdrop, offering the most ideal setting for discerning buyers.
“The Plum House,” which is the largest home of the group, boasting 4,757 square feet, is the first property to be built, with construction already underway.
“The name speaks for itself – a superb location for family living in one of the most desirable areas, just minutes from top schools, shops and parks,” said Penman. “The development team has cultivated an enclave of residences that will truly be experiential from the moment you call The Setting your home.”
Led by top-producing agent Jill Penman, The Jill Penman Group specializes in the Miami communities of South Miami, Coconut Grove, Coral Gables, Pinecrest, Key Biscayne and Miami Beach. Penman brings 10 years of experience in Miami real estate, and is a member of Master Brokers Forum and the Women’s Council of Realtors.
