Live Like A-Rod at This Sleek $32 Million Miami Manse
This new waterfront home is a modernist masterpiece that even includes a man-made private beach
If you’ve ever wanted to live like baseball star Alex Rodriguez, now is your chance. Local architecture firm Choeff Levy Fischman—designers of A-Rod’s dazzling Miami getaway—pulled out all the stops for this newly constructed waterfront home on Di Lido Island, in the heart of Biscayne Bay. Retractable floor-to-ceiling windows blur the line between indoors and out, merging the modernist seven-bedroom residence with inviting alfresco spaces, like the lavish pool court, cabana lounge, and private beach (the architects even brought in the sand). Interior designer Charlotte Dunagan, meanwhile, employed a sleek mix of limestone, Brazilian ipe wood, and aluminum bronze for the luxe abode, which also boasts an elevator, a screening room, and a master suite accessed via catwalk. The residence is a home run. Listed for $32,000,000, this 11,500-square-foot home has 7 bedrooms, 9 baths, and 2 half baths. Contact: Julian Johnston, 305-502-3985;CasaClaraLifestyle.com
Inviting outdoor spaces include a man-made white-sand beach, a cabana lounge with bar, and a limestone-paved pool court.
The lot totals half an acre of prime real estate, with 120 feet of ocean frontage, a dock, and views of downtown Miami and Biscayne Bay.
Choeff Levy Fischman devised the interior lighting scheme, while decorator Charlotte Dunagan warmed up the interiors with limestone floors and aluminum-bronze accents.
There is no hardware on the sleek white cabinetry in the kitchen.
Metallic pendants hang above the main dining area, situated between the kitchen and living room.
An ipe-clad terrace becomes part of the master bedroom, thanks to retractable glass walls, which open the space to bay breezes and breathtaking city views.
