A small single-family house stands in the middle of a huge construction project in Coral Gables. The $600 million commercial development is the largest in the city’s history.
The homeowner says his home carries priceless sentimental value and he won’t sell it, mo matter the noise, rubble or price.
Speaking of price, the owner Orlando Capote has been offered a lot, many times.
“The house is my soul. So what good is it to sell your soul for all the money in the world.”
For the past 6 years, Capote has refused more than 60 offers to sell to developers, real estate agents or flippers who made offers up to $900,000 for the two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,300-square-foot house.
