Miami, FL (June 24, 2013) – Coldwell Banker Previews International® is pleased to announce that its number one ranked sales team worldwide, Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber of The Jills®, have sold Castello del Sol, located at 42 La Gorce Circle, for $30 million.

“There are very few remaining jewels on the beautiful island of Miami Beach, and this sale is perfect example of the value in this area,” said Jill Hertzberg. “Right now, there are a limited number of fabulous pieces that can be owned, and the beaches, cultural events and unparalleled entertainment that Miami offers is attracting the attention of domestic and foreign buyers, both of whom are looking for primary or secondary residences. This is making for a very healthy market for savvy buyers and sellers.”

“Costello del Sol is a hidden treasure located at the tip of prestigious La Gorce Island and sits on an amazing 70,000- square-foot lot nestled behind stately banyon trees, with 349 feet on the wide bay,” added Jill Eber. “You truly feel like you are in your own private resort, with lagoon style pool, cascading waterfall, three teak docks with room for a large yacht, gym, tennis court and the most magnificent grounds.”
