Discover the Luxurious Neighborhoods of Coral Gables

Share this on:
Known as “the City Beautiful,” Coral Gables is the oldest planned community in South Florida. Founded by George Merrick in 1925, Coral Gables was designed in the Mediterranean Revival-style and is also home to the University of Miami. The downtown area was designed to be narrow and walkable, bisecting the business district when it was originally planned, and this remains true today.
Since its founding, Coral Gables has also become synonymous with some of Miami’s best neighborhoods to live or visit, thanks to its strict adherence to preserving the classic beauty it was founded with. Read below about some of Coral Gables’ finest and most exclusive areas:

Gables Estates

Gables Estates is located on the outskirts of the city off of Old Cutler Road and east to the edge of Biscayne Bay. Many of the residences here are known for their palatial size and style, ranging from Mediterranean to modern in design. Gables Estates is a short drive from some of Miami’s top private schools and from the heart of Coral Gables.


Cocoplum is a guard-gated residential community on the edge of Coconut Grove, technically located within the boundaries of Coral Gables. Owners here have access to tennis courts, a basketball court, pool, playground and clubhouse. For yacht enthusiasts, Cocoplum offers direct access to Biscayne Bay either from your own private dock or the Cocoplum Yacht Club marina. Residents are just a short drive from Coconut Grove, Downtown Miami, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden and some of the best private and public schools in the county.

Snapper Creek

Located just to the west of Old Cutler Road, the homes of Snapper Creek are known for their immense lot size. Each home sits on one acre of land, and many owners have maximized the use of their space. The area is known for its lush landscaping which is evident just by driving down its streets. The area is also a short drive from Matheson Hammock Park and features its own marina, great for boating enthusiasts who want easy access to the bay and Atlantic Ocean.

Gables by the Sea

Located to the south of Gables Estates, Gables by the Sea is renowned for its exclusivity. This gated community features several residences that sit on spacious lots with boat docks that offer direct water access to Biscayne Bay without bridges. The area also has a dedicated playground for children in the neighborhood to get together.
