Sitting on an extraordinary 2.1 acre lot in the exclusive Gables Estates gated community, lays a uniquely exceptional property brimming with an abundance of green space and luscious foliage. Upon arrival, a magnificent 100-year old Tanzanian Baobab tree deemed a historic landmark, offers a dramatic welcome. Beyond the intricately designed gates, is an expansive driveway with an enchanting koi pond in the center. Your first impression will definitely be a memorable one and it’s just a glimpse of what’s to come.
“As soon as you walk in through the main entrance, you notice the immaculate craftsmanship that went into the vaulted ceiling and elaborate finishes,” said Jill Hertzberg of The Jills. In fact, the entire estate has distinguished crown moldings, baseboards, window and door trim, a variety of ceiling types including coffered, coved, and trey in addition to stunning wood, marble, tile, and carpet floors that perfectly accentuate each and every room.
This grandiose 20,862 square foot home is comprised of 9 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and 5 half bathrooms. It also boasts an impressive 530.4 feet of water frontage with ethereal views of the entire Biscayne Bay and Miami skyline.
The first floor is complete with three powder rooms, one guest bedroom with a full bathroom, a family room with Creston system, two salt water aquariums, both a family and chef’s kitchen, wine cellar, laundry room, elevator, corporate office, den, and library. Below the first floor is a lower level which includes a full gym, boxing room, game room with kitchenette, nanny’s quarters, clothing press room, massage room, and an eight-car garage.
The second floor consists of a master bedroom with direct bay views that includes a sitting area, fireplace, expansive balcony, generous his and hers walk-in closets, steam shower, and spa bathtub. Furthermore, there are three additional bedrooms, an open room currently used as a museum, a private laundry room, and separate service stairs from the master bedroom’s closet.
“The lavish exterior is equally as marvelous as the elegant interior, seamlessly incorporating luxury with practicality and making this resort-like home ideal for entertaining,” said Jill Eber, also part of The Jills. The sprawling grounds feature landscape lighting, a large heated pool and spa overlooking the bay, security cameras throughout the property, and a 100-foot boat dock.
The estate is currently listed at $49,000,000 but also has the option of an adjacent lot with a private beach, cabana with mini-kitchen and full bath that could serve as guest quarters, and fully lit tennis/basketball court which together could be purchased for a total of $67,000,000. This Mediterranean work of art encompasses the essence of luxurious gentility and natural serenity all in one majestic setting!
