Two Casuarina is a private two-acre peninsula surrounded on two sides by water, with partial bay views and views of the secluded lagoon and protected yacht dockage. Gables Estates is widely considered one of the most prestigious residential enclaves in Miami. Two Casuarina is one of the largest properties in Gables Estates.
This extraordinary 11,183-square-foot residence was designed by famed architect Alfred Browning Parker. His design focuses on natural light, energy efficiency, and a serene balance of architecture and nature. He combined clerestory windows, local limestone, marble and rare woods into a dramatic yet flowing space that is breathtakingly beautiful, yet warm and livable.
Because of the unique nature and shape of this property, most rooms command a view of the lagoon, waterway or Atlantic Ocean.
Extensive use of curved wood and natural brick define the sculptural entertaining areas: a grand living and sitting room, and a formal dining room whose marble table rises seamlessly from the marble of the flooring itself. Extensive terraces surround the reflecting pool, fountain and approximately 70-foot swimming pool.
A large island kitchen has an informal dining room overlooking the lagoon and is adjacent to a family room with a fully equipped bar, perfect for large-scale entertaining.
The upstairs master suite is yet another wonderful indulgence; a huge library and sitting room adjoin the master bedroom with his-and-hers marble baths and extensive built-in closets.
From its balcony, a staircase descends directly into the pool. In the guest or children’s wing are three bedrooms and two baths. All open with wood louver doors to a cantilevered deck overlooking the beautiful lawns.
The guest quarters are separate, poolside and private with high ceilings overlooking the bay and waterway. Staff quarters, laundry room, storage area and carport complete this private estate.
This exceptional property is being offered at $12,900,000.
