Sunset estate is a lexicon of style that has no rival for quality and detail

Built in 1939 by the Cuban sugar king Julio Sánchez, “Sweet Spot” is a rare example of Florida Regency with English and Bahamian influences. This classic one-of-a-kind estate has no rival for quality and detail. A lexicon of style, it offers a dazzling mix of the classic and the cutting edge.

Its magnificent gardens lift the spirit and create a deep sense of providence and tranquility. A rolling lawn gives way to private pathways that meander through almost 35,000 square feet of land. There is a sparkling, all-tile infinity-edge pool just off a breeze-swept covered patio and a lovely outdoor bathtub and shower.

The flawless master suite has his-and-hers baths and a sweeping terrace overlooking 150 feet of waterfront. There are three guest suites plus a separate wing with its own private staircase with two more charming bedrooms. Downstairs is a sixth bedroom perfect for live-in help.

The gracious dining room, with its striking hand-painted wallpaper, overlooks the water, as do the formal and informal living rooms. A luminous sunroom and bar with a huge exotic fish tank will delight guests.

The handsome library/media room, the likes of which are rarely seen in a private home, will captivate residents for endless hours.

The home is nestled on a prestigious, guarded island. Residents are minutes away from world-famous South Beach.

This residence is being offered at $16.9 million.
