A massive mansion in Coral Gables hit the market for $67 million Thursday, making it the second most expensive home for sale in Miami-Dade County.

The nearly 21,000-square-foot, Mediterranean-style estate on Biscayne Bay includes a full gym, a professional chef’s kitchen, a 1,500-bottle wine cellar, nine bedrooms and 10 full bathrooms. Its 3.6-acre grounds contain a century-old banyan tree, private beach, koi pond, tennis court and dock with enough room for a 130-foot yacht.

“The way the property juts out into the bay makes it spectacular,” said Jill Hertzberg of Coldwell Banker, who is handling the sale along with her business partner Jill Eber. Together, they are known professionally as the Jills.

“This home is a rare, rare find,” Eber added.

The property has an address of 1 Casuarina Concourse. Its current owner, auto magnate Alan Potamkin, bought the lot for about $2 million in 1987, county property records show. He built the three-story house in 2000.

Only one home currently on the market, a mansion in Miami Beach listed for $75 million, has a higher asking price.

The most expensive home ever sold in Miami-Dade County remains a 10-bedroom estate on Indian Creek Island that sold for $47 million in 2012. It had originally been listed at $60 million. That transaction was also handled by the Jills.
