two bed­rooms that share a bath­room.

A guest suite over the de­tached two-car garage has a bed­room suite and kitchen.

Built-in cab­i­netry flanks the win­dow seat in the bay of the din­ing area, which is sep­a­rated from the kitchen by a counter with pull-up seat­ing.

The nearby fam­ily room is lined with win­dows and a built-in bar. Rather than Dade County pine floors, the rooms at the south end of the house have floors cov­ered in the orig­i­nal tile. In the kitchen are pro­fes­sional-grade ap­pli­ances, lime­stone coun­ter­tops and Water­works tile back­splash.

Kim has turned one of the up­stairs bed­rooms into a closet for her­self, but the shelv­ing could eas­ily be re­moved to re­veal bead-board wain­scot­ing, she ex­plains.

The mas­ter bath­room fea­tures dou­ble sinks, a mar­ble coun­ter­top and tile by Water­works in the walk-in shower.

“We call the liv­ing area off the mas­ter bed­room the read­ing room. It was prob­a­bly once an open porch, and it has a wood floor, beamed ceil­ing and built-in book­cases,” Kim says.

Next door

The house is next door to a sim­i­lar one Kim and Ray Cele­d­i­nas bought in 2010 at 234 Chilean Ave., which they are also of­fer­ing for sale.

At one time, they used the en­tire com­plex for their fam­ily, and as such, they’ve opened up the back­yard be­tween the two properties.

No. 234, al­most a twin of 203, has 2,432 to­tal square feet, stands on a smaller lot and has a plunge pool rather than a full-size pool.

“It’s been a happy home for us,” Kim says. “It was a big de­ci­sion for us to sell. We thought we’d give the houses to our daugh­ters, but Tay­lor lives in New York City and Pay­ton is in Chicago, and I don’t see them mov­ing back here.”
