This stunning waterfront estate in the prestigious Coral Gables enclave of Journey’s End has been completely and superbly renovated, offering prospective buyers a unique opportunity to live in a resort-like residence, surrounded by lush tropical landscaping. Nestled on approximately 1.75 acres and priced at $15,000,000, the estate, at 9485 Old Cutler Ln., features five bedrooms and six and one-half baths and boasts a most unique feature: the original water tower used by Arthur Vining Davis to survey his land holdings from the Cocoplum Circle to Red Road.  From atop this historic structure, residents can enjoy coveted views of Biscayne Bay, the Miami skyline, Coral Gables and Coconut Grove.

Inside, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors frame views of the verdant grounds.  Blackwood marble floors, Sentousai Japanese stone wall accents, skylights and open beam ceilings complement large, airy living areas. The front door has been custom designed of Honduran mahogany by the renowned craftsmen of Roatan Mahogany Millwork. The gourmet-style kitchen by Artcraft is a chef’s dream and has been outfitted with sandstone countertops, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, handsome wood cabinetry, a breakfast area and a large cooking island.

The master suite has a gym, a coffee bar, electric shades, a large sitting area and a bath equipped with Toto appliances. As in each of the home’s bedrooms and baths, the master suite also has custom cabinetry and top-of-the-line marble fixtures and fittings. The residence additionally features a home theater, Lutron lighting system and fully automated sound system, a glittering chandelier in the dining room handcrafted in Italy by Terzani and a fireplace in the living room.

The exotic nature of the estate’s interior mirrors that of its surroundings. Koi ponds and covered terraces encircle a large inviting pool and sit adjacent to a lagoon. The tower, which has been completely renovated and converted into a luxury guest suite, has a new elevator, reclaimed historic European cobblestone walkway, reclaimed wide plank wood floors, custom cabinetry and a wet bar with a red onyx backsplash.
