About Alexander Calzadilla

Alexander Calzadilla is a Cuban male originally from Philadelphia, who has happily called Miami his home since moving here at the age of 15. He attended Southwest Sr. High School and Florida International University, ultimately receiving his Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. While in college, he began working as a paralegal for the Law Offices of Jeffrey E. Reichenbacher, a position he kept for seven years after graduation. He subsequently worked at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius Associates before landing at Costa Nursery. After distinguishing himself with many accomplishments, he was promoted to the position of Director of Specialty Products, which included the orchid, bonsai and lucky bamboo departments. When Alex was first put in charge of the three departments, they ranked near the bottom. By the time he left Costa after seven years, Alex had transformed the floundering departments into unqualified successes, posting record earnings, sales and profitability. In 2008 Alex was named the Costa Employee of the Year. Alex now puts his formidable prowess as a businessman into his newest venture, Avant-Garde Home Furnishings, LLC, serving as Managing Partner.

A getaway in the heart of Mid Beach

A getaway in the heart of Mid Beach.... 

After being gone for a while from my official blog, I am coming back with a new series I am writing, featuring homes that stand out in the south Florida community. 

I was lucky enough to spend the day a few days ago with some really good friends, lucky guys that have created an oasis in the middle of mid beach, Miami Beach. This is a 1940's restored residence that is not only exquisite but a gem of a house - complete with sun roof, main entry room, and real 1920's-40's antique pieces, this is one of a kind home. 

Hope you enjoy the pics and post. 

The front outside of this beautiful house and the main room once you enter this home... Simply amazing.. It looks both cozy and very classy... it also feels like a home and is very functional 

Beautiful Sculptures all around this home are simply amazing

One of a kind antique pieces are common throughout the home as well

This beautiful piece is from the 1930's

The office area overlooks the beautiful pool

The exquisite dining room

But the true fantastic part of this home is the pool and sun deck located on the roof complete with artificial TURF AND AMAZING DECOR.. THESE TWO AREAS OF THE HOME are not only the most used, but the most functional. Please see pics below...

And finally I will present pictures of the master bedroom, and front of this house. They have really created a beautiful oasis full of period details from the 1940's.
