Looking for sizzle? This $23.5 million mansion comes loaded with hot features
The futuristic appearance of this $23.5 million mansion in Miami Beach is made for admirers of modern architecture. It will also catch the fancy of auto enthusiasts and gourmet cooks.
The home’s many stunning features include flush retractable windows, marbled bathrooms and a motor court with car turntable.
And there’s a state-of-the-art, $500,000 kitchen.
The home, at 19 Palm Ave., is on Palm Island, in Biscayne Bay just south of Hibiscus Island.
Completed in 2019, the 9,556-square-foot gated home has six bedrooms, nine baths, a wine bar, theater, elevator and a 1,500-square-foot master wing with his-and-hers Ornare closets, a midnight kitchen, sitting lounge and fireplace.
And then there’s that $500,000 custom kitchen by Fendi, boasting chocolate lacquer floor-to-ceiling cabinetry and champagne-leather paneling, as well as top-of-the-line appliances. There’s a separate catering kitchen as well.
The Tropical Modern house, by Miami-based architecture firm Choeff Levy Fischman, was designed for seamless transition between indoor and outdoor living and features flush retractable glass windows that are the first of their kind in Miami Beach, according to Dina Goldentayer, executive director of sales at Douglas Elliman in Miami Beach, who holds the listing.
Outside, there’s an infinity-edge pool, a sunken living room surrounding a fire pit and a cabana with summer kitchen and rooftop lounge. The property has 110 linear feet on Biscayne Bay.
Additional features of the home include a British-made rotating automobile turntable in the motor court, a 460-foot, open-air atrium with floating steps that span a pool of water and a second-floor pajama lounge where the family can relax in a private setting away from the traffic of the ground floor.
There’s also Savant home-automation technology and, for those concerned about security, infrared technology and 19 cameras on the property.
“Palm Island is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in all of Miami,” said Goldentayer. “It’s a gated location, and it’s central — five minutes from both South of Fifth and downtown Miami.”
“Other homes on Palm and Hibiscus Islands that are priced in the $20 millions are all older,” Goldentayer said. “Miami is a town that is obsessed with youth, and that applies to houses as well.”
The current owners, Dean and Melissa Carr, bought the 18,000-square-foot property in August 2014 for $6.5 million. They are selling because they have relocated to Monaco.
