The Neighborhood

One of the places in Miami where you will find streets lined with stately homes and mansion-like structures is Helms Country Estates in Pinecrest. This area is one of the more opulent addresses in the city, and this is evidenced by the large homes and sprawling lands that these are built upon. This neighborhood is situated near the Pinecrest Parkway, and stretches from SW 69th Court to SW 60th Avenue, and from SW 104th Street to SW 110th Street, with part of the neighborhood extending to Killian Parkway.

The homes in this neighborhood, much like in most of Pinecrest, were built in the 1960s, hence the old plantation-style look of some of these residences. The houses you will see in Helms County are mostly 4 bedrooms and upwards, with a few having huge lot sizes and landscaped surroundings. Some of these homes also have swimming pools, stately entryways, and wrought-iron gates reminiscent of the era these were built in.

Residents in this neighborhood are mostly homeowners, with 94% of these homes occupied by those who purchased them.

Median age of residents in this enclave is late thirties to mid-forties, with a few retirees, teenagers, and young children. Between 88% and 92% of the population here is married, and more than half have a college education.
