A Kendall home with a basketball court, tennis court and zoned for up to two horses sold recently for $2.3 million, listing agency Avatar Real Estate announced Monday.

The 8,612-square-foot home was built in 1979 and sits on 1.83 acres. The property is surrounded by a gate and mature oak trees.

Inside, the home has six bedrooms, five bathrooms, two half-baths, a 2,500-bottle wine room and a private movie theater.

The sale was the most expensive in the area to date, and was also one of the priciest west of U.S. 1 in the last year, according to a release. Nancy Hogan, Debbie Preston, Laura Barreto and Brittney Barreto of Avatar handled the listing.

Nancy Hogan, one of the home’s listing agents from Avatar, told The Real Deal that the estate’s high ceilings and wood furniture give it the feel of a lodge.

“There is this perception that there are no unique homes in Kendall. There are certainly some beautiful homes west of the highway,” Hogan told TRD. “This home was one of those unique properties. To me, it’s like a retreat.”

Rodney Barreto, a prominent business man and lobbyist, was the seller, according to Miami-Dade County property records. The house was built in 1979. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
