The Cutest Little House In Miami
Located in the Shenandoah area of Miami, a traditional, middle-class Cuban-American neighbourhood, this little house sticks out like a sore thumb in the sedate, prosperous area.
From its orange ochre paint, to vague but impressive Islamic lines, and a rather stubby palm tree in its tiny lawn, this house is a sweetie, though I have to warn you...
...it probably still costs in the range of $250,000.
Yes, mignon though it is, it is located in precisely the most sought-after middle income area in Miami, which old time Cubans who fled Castro's regime in the 1960s, took up residence because of its safety, and proximity to the many Catholic churches around it.
Speaking of Catholic, I tried to get a photo of a house with one of those outside memorials to the Virgin Mary, or to Our Sacred Heart of Jesus, without success!
My God, they used to be a dime a dozen, in that neighbourhood, but now, I suppose the yuppy YUCAs (Young Urban Cuban Americans), think they're a tad sentimental and perhaps dowdy.
A Santa Barbara a Caballo statue outside this house would be perfect.
Like icing on top of its orangey velvetness.
