Set on approximately one acre, this stunning Mediterranean-style estate, with an area of more than 9,700- square feet, offers privacy and elegance. The lush, professionally manicured grounds feature a spectacular pool, spa, fountains and a large dock.
Built in 1939 and renovated to perfection, this gated villa contains a wealth of impressive entertaining space as well as eight bedrooms and eight-and-one-half baths.
A Chicago-brick entrance court and portico lead to a charming courtyard with a fountain. Within the home, an elegant foyer opens to a graceful, large living room overlooking the water and courtyard, featuring hand-crafted wooden coffered ceilings, sets of French doors and a stone wood-burning fireplace.
The formal dining room and the kitchen with granite countertops and breakfast area have beautiful water views. The family room/media room, ideal for grand-scale entertaining, features a granite bar, plasma television and movie screen, and opens to the pool area, grounds and water views. Fine marble and hardwood floors are present throughout.
Up a winding staircase, the sumptuous master suite, with soaring ceilings and hardwood floors, offers an oversize dressing room, customized marble bath and covered terrace. Also on this level are three oversize bedroom suites. On the lower level, there’s a guest apartment, an office with separate entrance and oversize garage.
Residents can step into the pool from the house and swim to the gazebo, which has a barbecue bar and cabana bath. The approximately 220 feet of prime waterfront offers ample yacht dockage and direct access to Biscayne Bay and the ocean.
Framed by tropical landscape, the Mediterranean-style, waterfront jewel is tucked behind electric gates on La Gorce Island, one of Miami Beach’s most prestigious guarded islands. It’s just minutes from the beaches and nightlife of South Beach, as well as Miami’s major business centers.
The residence is being offered at $13,500,000.
