Nestled on the shores of Biscayne Bay in the Village of Palmetto Bay, Thalatta Estate is an elegant and refined property that exudes glamor and sophistication of South Florida's old aristocracy. Situated on the nostalgic Old Cutler Road with breathtaking views of the ocean, this 1925 Mediterranean-Revival estate was designed and built by the Connett family in the early 19th century and has since stood as the foundation of hopes and dreams for generations. The sprawling property spans more than four acres, which include exquisitely landscaped gardens and grounds and two historically significant buildings, along with spectacular views of the Biscayne National Park and the protected mangroves of the South Miami-Dade in the distance. Boasting a rich heritage, and surrounded by lush tropical gardens and a majestic banyan tree, Thalatta Estate offers an unparalleled venue for private celebrations such as wedding ceremonies, receptions, and other special events.
