One of the best perks of owning Florida waterfront property? It can double as a place to park your yacht. In the case of a pair of recently listed mansions in Coral Gables by The Jills Zeder Group, they’ve taken that perk and raised it with prime water frontage and channels wide and deep enough to accommodate a 100-foot yacht.
The first property, situated at 585 Arvida Parkway, unites an elegant 12,102 square-foot residence on beautifully landscaped grounds in the prestigious community of Gables Estates. Featuring 180 feet of waterfront with direct access and no bridges to Biscayne Bay, the property offers some of the best views of the bay, a private dock and a 20,000-pound boat lift, making it “an ideal find for the boating enthusiast,” says Nathan Zeder of The Jills Zeder Group, affiliated with Coldwell Banker Realty in Coral Gables.
Featuring east and west wings, the exterior facade melds Dutch and island influences. The two-story interiors “are the epitome of chic,” adds Judy Zeder, with double-height ceilings, stunning living and formal dining rooms, and a chef’s kitchen with Gaggenau appliances and a breakfast area. A total of six bedrooms complete the home, including a lavish main suite that offers a luxurious marble bath with a long-mirrored vanity, jacuzzi and multi-jet shower, and two walk-in closets. Other notable features include an elevator, family room, library, two fireplaces, a 4-car garage and resort-style grounds punctuated with covered outdoor terraces, a pool and all of the mariner’s amenities you need for life on the water.
Just a few doors down on Arvida Parkway, the next property also offers 180 feet of water frontage and a 100-foot private dock with a 35,000-pound boat lift. Here, Florida resort living gets a sophisticated interpretation with over 16,700 square feet of living space in a three-level contemporary-inspired Mediterranean mansion.
The Zeders call the home “a work of art” from top to bottom. Masterfully designed for entertaining, the interiors are centered around gracious family and game rooms appointed with wet bars, a temperature-controlled wine cellar and a theater. Meanwhile, the formal living room is anchored by a fireplace and flows to the elegant dining area and chef’s kitchen with Wolf, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances. Other amenities include a fitness room with a sauna, office and elevator. Six bedrooms, along with six full baths and two half baths, allow everyone their own space. Meanwhile, the gorgeously designed primary suite beckons with a sitting room, spa bath and a balcony, giving you the chance to take in breathtaking water views. Resort-like grounds await just beyond with a summer kitchen, pool, jacuzzi and plentiful amenities for the serious boater.
