Morningside is probably the most peaceful residential area in Miami that isn’t actually gated. It achieves this by having only a couple of streets with access from the main street, Biscayne Boulevard (while the other side streets are dead ends). Together with its adjacent island community, Bay Point, this historic neighborhood is known for stately architecture, leafy foliage, privacy and famous guests: Pope John Paul II stayed at an archbishop’s house during his visit to the United States. This is an extremely safe area where you’ll find people walking their dogs, visiting the beautiful bayfront Morningside Park or its tennis center.
Morningside and Bay Point are just a short drive down Biscayne Boulevard into Downtown Miami. It’s extremely close to the booming nightlife in the Arts District, and it’s an easy jaunt across the Julia Tuttle Causeway into Miami Beach and all the world-famous nightlife that entails. Morningside is a neighborhood for those looking for peace and privacy without living too far away from the center of the city.
Where To Live:
The homes in Morningside and Bay Point are incredible, and their sturdy construction and desirable location means they’ll always hold their value. Many of the properties include spacious backyards, and some even have direct bay access. Prices start around $500,000 up to $20 million and more.
You May Also Like:
The privacy of Morningside and Bay Point is similar to that of some of the Biscayne Bay islands. San Souci and Keystone Point are nearby to the north, and Edgewater is a booming area just to the south but has more high-rise condominiums, rather than single-family homes.
