Unlike denser municipalities in Miami-Dade County, Pinecrest is all about breathing room. Large, leafy lots provide privacy and space for every amenity such as lush landscaping, edible gardens, pools and entertaining areas without cramping living quarters or vice versa. Ample home styles range from mid-century modern masterpieces by Miami’s notable architects and classic ranches to brand-new construction with all the latest trends and conveniences. A major reason its properties are so popular and retain their value is the outstanding public school system that continues through Palmetto Senior High. The private Gulliver Academy is another strong option. Combined with an equally solid public library branch, community center with gorgeous fitness center, and several parks and bike trails, Pinecrest real estate has become one of the region’s most coveted locations. Pinecrest boasts national recognitions such as a Tree City USA and a Community of Respect. Residents can enjoy the community’s eight parks and stunningly beautiful Pinecrest Gardens.
