$20 million for La Gorce Island Home, Miami Beach

A new listing has just hit the Miami housing market, and it is truly something to see. The home is listed at $20 million and is located on La Gorce Island in Miami Beach. This two story, single family 20,000 square foot waterfront home is already making a quite a splash.

Like many homes in Miami, this estate was originally purchased as a winter residence for a developer and his family. Strategically placed on the side of the island that receives natural ocean breezes, year-round sunshine and warm Miami weather means hosting friends around the beautiful pool in mid-December poses no problem for owners. If friends want a little roaming space, this estate also comes with an incredible 48,027 square feet of land.

The home was built in 2008 and is a stunning modern mansion both inside and out; it features 2 docks, a stunning lap pool and spa, an elevated and separated guest house or cabana, an oversized rooftop terrace, double high-end kitchen, a staff house, and a five car garage. Pristine and contemporary designs inside also include a marble spiral staircase that leads up to a master suite with a designer bathroom and a terrace that overlooks the pool, backyard and bay. In total, there are ten bedrooms, twelve full bathrooms, three partial bathrooms—enough for any sized family, and then some.

Of the many islands in Miami Beach, La Gorce remains one of the few with extremely easy access to all of the buzz of South Beach, while still upholding its neighborhood charm and style. The next owner of this exquisite mansion located on the island will also be privy to Miami Beach’s island improvement funds, which is estimated to be more than $1.5 million to maintain upkeep of the islands trees and streets.

On a more personal note, my own Miami Beach apartment overlooks the bay with a straight-shot view of this spectacular estate on La Gorce Island, and I can vouch for the fact that whomever the next home owner is, they are certainly in for a magnificent modern Miami treat.
