Belle Meade is a gated community east of Biscayne Boulevard on Biscayne Bay in the Upper East Side area. Belle Meade consists of single-family homes and two smaller areas: Bayside Historic District and Belle Meade Island. Most of the homes in this area were built pre-1970 and many have charming art deco features.
The location of this neighborhood allows for easy access to Miami Beach, Downtown and Miami International Airport. Many retailers are opening along the Biscayne Corridor to service the residential neighborhoods.
