Renowned architect Cesar Molina is known for “ultra-luxury single-family homes for accomplished individuals and their families who appreciate privacy, design, spacious floorplans, and spectacular views.” This Key Biscayne contemporary proves the point. Recently listed by Carmen D’Ambrosio of Coldwell Banker Realty in Key Biscayne for $20 million, the waterfront estate offers resort-style indoor-outdoor living and entertaining, complete with open-plan interiors, 88 feet of canal frontage, a 70-foot private dock and a dockside infinity-edge lap pool.
With a two-story wall of windows opening onto the back terrace, canal and manicured tropical landscaping, the living room flows seamlessly to a window-wrapped great room with kitchen, dining and family room. The home was fully refreshed and rejuvenated in 2022 with numerous upgrades, including an updated chef’s kitchen, which has a large island, bar seating, beautiful millwork and a walk-in pantry. Two of the home’s five bedroom suites are on the ground floor.
Upstairs, there are three more bedroom suites, each with its own balcony, including the primary suite, in a separate wing, with an expansive spa-style bath and large walk-in closet. A central loft space, for reading or yoga, overlooks the living room, and a winding staircase leads up to the spacious third-floor den/media room. With balconies on two sides, panoramic views, a service bar and bathroom, this could be an extra sleeping space, office or play room.
Finished with natural stone and wood throughout, the residence offers many settings for entertaining, al fresco dining and recreation, including nine covered balconies and four covered terraces. The detached three-car garage is immaculate and air-conditioned, with one bay set up as a gym.
Less than a five-minute boat ride from Biscayne Bay, this architectural estate fulfills the promises of Cesar Molina’s mission: luxurious, private, spacious and beautifully designed.
