Trophy Properties



“Classic” is one way to describe this Mediterranean estate, which glistens with traditional elegance befitting a 70-year-old mansion designed by renowned architect Phineas Paist, whose Beaux Arts style is imprinted on old Miami hallmarks such as the Vizcaya mansion and the old Miami Federal Courthouse.

“Opulent” is another appropriate description of this home, located in lovely Coral Gables. Nestled in the widest lagoon setting on the Coral Gables Waterway, and bounded on the east and west by luxurious boathouses, this home covers an incredible 1.5 acres in one of South Florida’s most historic and affluent neighborhoods, and also comes with its own private island in the Florida Keys.

With more than 11,000 square feet, this home features anything and everything one could want: a tennis court and pavilion, a dance patio, a heated Olympic-size pool, two cabanas, built-in barbecue, and two shuffleboard courts. And, with five bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and two half baths, there is plenty of privacy and room to stretch your legs. One of the greatest features might be the home’s arched loggia, which leads to a separate guest house, with a fantastic rock pool and waterfall that add to the relaxing, vacation-like atmosphere.

Not that a vacation would be needed-if this is the mansion you come home to every day, we wouldn’t blame you for staying put during your free time. And, of course, you could always take an excursion to your own eight-acre private island straddling Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean-now that’s haute living.
