Historic Coconut Grove Home on the Market

Cape Coral Lighthouse, 1883

Cape Coral Lighthouse in Cocont Grove, 1883

In the late 1870s, John Peacock visited Coconut Grove and was enraptured by the waterfront city. So much so, that he built a home and enticed his brother Charles to visit. His brother and wife would go on to build the Peacock Inn, credited with luring winter tourists and Bahamian workers to the area. This new influx of visitors lured Henry Flagler to bring his railroad to Southern Florida.

Amazing what one smitten man can set in motion!

Today, the grand Mediterranean estate built in 1910 for John Peacock, the founder of Coconut Grove, is listed by my colleague, Audrey Ross of EWM for $4,500,000.  The updated residence with its original Florida charm consists of 5 bedrooms, 5 and half baths, a pool, wine cellar, and tennis court. Situated on over an acre of lush vegetation this 100 plus year old home is must see for anyone interested in purchaing a slice of Coconut Grove history! To view details click here.
