Casa Casuarina: crown jewel of South Florida luxury living

 

ADVERTORIAL

Originally built in 1930, Casa Casuarina, formerly known as the Versace mansion, is steeped in glamorous style. Design artisans and European craftsmen combined to create a grand and majestic masterpiece on world-famous Ocean Drive, directly facing the Atlantic Ocean.

Ten bedrooms and 11 bathrooms are uniquely decorated and swathed in lavish appointments, hand-painted walls and ceiling frescoes, reminiscent of resplendent mansions around the world.

The piece de resistance of this historic residence is the 54-foot long, mosaic tile, 24-carat-gold lined pool, sparkling like a perfect diamond in an exquisitely appointed courtyard. Punctuating this courtyard are just a few of many museum-quality pieces housed in this world-class property. Topping off the luxury-laden, 23,462-square-foot estate is yet another uniquely designed room, an observatory.

A huge domed ceiling with curved windows provides a tantalizing view of the sun, the moon and the stars. This property’s oceanfront location and unparalleled design and appointments make it one of the most coveted homes in all of North America. The property is available for commercial or residential use.
