Casa Bahia, a waterfront Coconut Grove estate that is the vision of an award-winning filmmaker, has hit the market for $50 million.

Sitting on an acre of land at 3085 Munroe Drive, the home has seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, a powder room, four kitchens, a 73-foot pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, entertainment theater room, climate controlled wine room, eight-car gallery and a protected boat dock. The asking price is the highest in Coconut Grove and the second highest in Miami, a spokeswoman said.

Casa Bahia, completed in December and the only Miami residential project to have won an Architizer award this year, is the first house designed by the 35-year-old filmmaker-turned-first-time-designer, Alejandro Landes, best known for the film “Porfirio.” The 20,000-square-foot Casa Bahia features a minimalist style and an exposed exoskeleton wrapped in teak, glass and white stucco. Inside are expansive floating balconies made to give you a “cliff-like suspension,” cantilevered sinks and floating staircases. “Only things made well can be laid bare. The result is something you want to touch,” said Landes, in a press release.

Casa Bahia is listed by Pablo Alfaro of Douglas Elliman. More information is on www.casabahiamiami.com.
