One-time GOP presidential hopeful and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is selling in South Florida. Bush and his wife, Columba, recently listed their immaculate townhome in the Almeria Row development in Coral Gables for $1.8 million.
It’s a perfect location for a politician (or anyone else, really) who desires a little privacy but also likes to be close to the action. The small town of about 50,000 is close to downtown Miami and South Beach, but removed just enough to create a comfortable distance.
Almeria Row is an exclusive grouping of 10 luxury townhouses that “combine the amenities of urban living with the convenience of a single-family home.”
The Bush condo is pristine and bright, with white shades and walls, and marble accents throughout the kitchen and bathrooms. There’s a guesthouse in the back to accommodate staff or visiting family and friends.
The main house features two en suite master bedrooms. Both floors of the townhouse are open and airy, allowing for an abundance of sunshine.
The kitchen is appointed with top-of-the-line appliances, and oak wood flooring runs throughout the house.
The two-bedroom guesthouse with a separate entrance is situated above a two-car garage. A buyer could potentially convert the area into an office or exercise studio.
Given the Bush family ties and Jeb’s run for the presidency in 2016, it’s likely the Secret Service used the guesthouse at some point.
Ready for the inevitable thunderstorm or, worse, hurricane, the townhome is equipped with impact windows and doors as well—a must-have in Florida.
And in true Florida style, a private courtyard with a fountain separates the main home from the guesthouse and garage.
The Bushes purchased the townhome in 2011 for $1.3 million. For a comparable, the townhouse next door has been on the market for over 90 days with a $1.85 million price tag.
