Miami Beach is known for its lavish homes that “push the envelope” in the worldwide luxury market. Even in this culture of breathtaking homes, there are still Miami Beach homes that inspire awe in everyone who views them. Despite the classic view of Miami Beach homes as waterfront with Mediterranean-style architecture, many homes are parting from this tradition and paving the way for modernity and innovative designs. Listed below are three homes in Miami Beach that are truly “impressive” in every sense of the word.
1116 Ocean Drive – You may know this South Beach mansion as Casa Casuarina, or its more popular name The Versace Mansion.

The outdoor living area, fabulous location, and breathtaking architectural design – make this home the finest Indian Creek mansion available.
15 Star Island – If the name “Star Island” sounds familiar, it’s because the biggest South Florida celebrities and other high-profile figures call Star Island home.
