Made for the collector at heart, this two-story modernist estate on Miami Beach’s guard-gated Palm Island is a piece of art in and of itself. First, the residence takes its enviable position on a manicured 32,000 square-foot lot with 100 feet of prime waterfront. The magnificently redesigned home unites nine bedrooms, eight full baths and one half bath in a dynamic floorplan tailor-made for high-style entertaining.
What you may notice immediately upon entering are the soaring ceilings, wall-to-wall glass and gallery-like spaces that are the perfect place for an art collection. Bright Miami light fills many of the main living spaces while the use of natural materials like rich hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling stone on the statement fireplace between the living room and dining room — infuse the interiors with a sense of comfort. All of the main living spaces — from the living, dining and family areas — open to stunning water views and city skyline.
The gourmet kitchen pays homage to modernism with top-of-the-line luxury appliances, streamlined European-style cabinetry and a warm-yet-timeless design palette. The adjacent family room feels intimate while providing a seamless link to the kitchen. Each public space on the main floor maintains a vital visual connection to the outdoors via massive walls of glass — a beloved feature of Miami modernism. A well-planned outdoor oasis further facilitates entertaining: a large pool with Jacuzzi, a large covered seating area with summer kitchen, an IPE wood dock and direct access to Biscayne Bay and the Ocean. Other amenities in this home have been thoughtfully integrated to enhance one’s daily living experience — a private movie theater, elevator, pet room, four-car garage, staff rooms, recreation room and a full gym. Upstairs, the principal suite beckons with a spacious hotel-like haven complete with two walk-in closets, a beautiful Carrara marble bathroom and views extending to the pool.
In this home, the home is the art — but also, the living experience is art.
