I sell a lot of historic homes over the years in Southern Maryland so this caught my eye!
This Historic Home in Coral Gables could be yours, the OLDEST standing residence in Miami-Dade County!
Live in history! This farm house, built over 20 years BEFORE George Merrick developed Coral Gables, has been lovingly maintained true to the original builders design, including claw-footed tub and tin ceiling! Built in 1899, the house was the homestead to avocado and mango grower, Arthur Lang, who bought the 10 acres from Miami founder, Julia Tuttle. Lang sold the home to the Morton Adams in 1934 who renamed the street running up to the his property line at Old Dixie Highway (US 1), Maynada Street, after their daughter, Mayna.
This lovely home has been owned by the same owners, Peter Zorn Jr and his wife Kathleen Smith Zorn for over 30 years now. They have it decorated and furnished right out of a time more reminiscent to the Lang's and Adam's times than our own. The home has only had four owners, the Langs, the Adams, the Zorns and the Batchelors (1971-1977). It now is looking for its new family. The home is a Coral Gables Historic Landmark.
