Welcome to Miami Shores

Perched in Miami-Dade County, this lushly tented residential village is a small-town community located 15 to 20 minutes away from the heart of Miami, just west of Biscayne Bay and east of I-95. Originally developed during the 1920s, several prominent real estate magnates (including Major Hugh Gordon, T.V. Moore and later The Shoreland Corporation) sought to transform Miami Shores into a land lapped by Mediterranean-style estates. Today, more than a century later, Miami Shores is now a pantheon of exceptional architecture ranging from beautiful single-family homes to art deco style bungalows upon the backdrop of a family-friendly oasis. A carpet of wide tree-lined streets with Royal Palm Trees makes for the perfect destination to raise a family, where bike riding is welcome, and a bastion of child-oriented activities are spread throughout the neighborhood. Quaint and quiet, this classic suburban-like area calls home to more than 10,000 people with an active civic life, village government and the Miami Shores Police Department. Calling itself the “Village Beautiful,” buyers will find no shortage of well-maintained homes and lawns painting a picturesque lifestyle and community.
