"This sale sets the new standard for the Miami Beach luxury market. It is easily one of the most spectacular properties in the world. I am blown away every time I walk through the door," said Jill Eber. "This property is a private resort that is a true work of art. There is the combination of amazing architecture, finishes and location. I wish we had 10 more properties like this one."
The luxurious 30,000 square-foot resort on Miami's private Indian Creek Island has 10-bedrooms, 14-bathrooms and is comprised of a series of pavilions interconnected by beautifully crafted stone walkways and lush garden walls. Serene water-front views are visible from every room, and residents and guests of the home have access to a 100-foot resort-style pool and cabana, six wet-bars and a rooftop sky bar and Jacuzzi. Also gracing the property is a full spa pavilion and a state-of-the-art glass encased waterfront gym.
"Three Indian Creek awakened the market due to its unique design and form. It's a magnificent blend of glass, water and sunlight that skillfully brings the outside into the home in a peaceful zen-like architectural wonder," added Jill Hertzberg. "When it came on the market, it immediately won the 'gold medal' for house design. From the moment you enter by using the touch panel, your senses are immediately engaged. I am extremely impressed with the courage the builders had in imagining and then building a uniquely spectacular home."
The owner/builders, Schlomy Alexander and Felix Cohen had a vision to create a home that would be a wonderful reflection of the South Florida lifestyle, including a resort beach, spa, 3D theatre, vertical garden, and a place where the owner would never want to leave. Living spaces are enclosed by wooden louvers and glass, flooding the home with natural light. Coupled with limestone walls and indoor reflecting pools, this home is truly a contemporary masterpiece of architecture and art.
"The property is a work of art from the detail on finishes combining extraordinary stone work with a resort spa feel from every area of the home," Eber added. "I have never seen a developer with so much passion for every detail. They had a vision from the beginning and utilized space in combination with textures, shapes and unique features to create a one of a kind experience.
