What $1.5 million buys you in these Miami Beach neighborhoods
Ready to make the plunge and invest in a Miami Beach neighborhood? You may not think $1.5 million will get you very far in the high-flying world of Miami’s island real estate, but you’d be surprised. We’ve picked out four neighborhoods where luxury, atmosphere, and value make for an irresistible combination.
This centrally located alcove in the heart of Miami features charming outdoor cafes, boutique coffee shops, and a pedestrian-friendly atmosphere. It feels like a small town, but you’ll find modern architecture and urban infrastructure around every corner. Bayshore brings out the creativity in its residents, and artistic renderings on the walls throughout the city add a pop of color and spunk to the low-key feel. Fresh food, artisan-inspired markets, and cool yet classy happy hour spots make it an easy, “homey” place to live. Most residents live in one of three sleek high rises, however there are impressive single-family homes near Bayshore Plaza.
Homes like 2062 Alton Road combine classic Miami style with contemporary upgrades and modern architecture. Built in the ‘30s, this 2,491-square-foot home features five bedrooms, a private swimming pool, vaulted ceilings, and a chef-inspired kitchen with brand new appliances. The private pool is surrounded by stunning palm trees for ultimate privacy, and the back patio area is perfect for a poolside party under the stars. This home is the definition of simple elegance, and its three contemporary bathrooms make you feel like you’ve walked into a luxury spa. Recent upgrades to this gorgeous Miami beauty make it a true steal at $1,345,000. An entertainer’s paradise, this sprawling home creates a sexy and sophisticated atmosphere to entertain the who’s who of Miami.
When photographers want to capture the elegance and luxury of Miami, they head to Nautilus. This gorgeous neighborhood is home to multi-million dollar estates and breathtaking penthouses. This neighborhood is just minutes from Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean and puts residents a short drive from an A-rated school, public parks and playgrounds, and South Beach. The stunning scenery, the large, private residences and the easy access to the beach create a secure and tucked away feel, even though it’s located in the center of the city of Miami Beach.
The Nautilus neighborhood is where you’ll find incredible homes like 920 W 23rd Street. This 2,529-square-foot luxury estate has the elegance and detail of a home built in the ‘40s, but has been recently upgraded to meet the needs of a modern family. This home has four giant bedrooms with closets the size of a small NYC apartment. The elegant bathrooms have rain shower features and spa-inspired design elements. The private pool and backyard are perfect for entertaining, and the only thing this gourmet kitchen is missing is your own private chef. The beautiful, open layout allows residents and their guests to move about the home easily, while the private bedrooms and bathrooms offer an ideal place for rest and relaxation. This house feels like an island paradise, and the $1,475,000 price tag makes it even more appealing.
La Gorce Country Club
This prestigious country club is a golfer’s dream come true. Not only do residents have access to the beautiful 18-hole champion golf course, but its world-class, resort-style amenities make residents feel like they are on a 24/7 vacation. From tennis and croquet courts to a gorgeous community pool lined with tall palm trees and state-of-the-art fitness center, this upscale community provides members with a lifestyle that combines style, sophistication, and excellence. On-site dining offers members both casual and formal options and allows families to go out to dinner without having to leave the neighborhood. Just minutes from the beach and a short drive to some of Miami’s favorite local restaurants and shops, this high-profile neighborhood is the definition of high-profile beachfront living.
For $1.5 million, you could own a stunning estate like 5229 Alton Rd. This five-bedroom architectural masterpiece was built in the ‘50s but has seen some incredible upgrades in the last few years. With 3,409 square feet of living space and an effortless flow between indoor and outdoor, this breathtaking home has it all. Five spa-inspired bathrooms, giant living spaces and a tropical landscaped yard — this traditional Miami home even has its own guesthouse and an intimate rear patio for entertaining. La Gorce Country Club is the ideal neighborhood for Miamians who love spending time outdoors, but prefer their indoor living space to be high-style and cool at the same time.
You can’t talk luxury in Miami without mentioning Biscayne Point. Almost every home in this intimate North Beach neighborhood is on the water, and this gated community is the “it” neighborhood for residents seeking a low-key, waterfront lifestyle. Biscayne Point is a short drive from local restaurants and shops, but tucked away enough that even long-term residents know it’s there. Mature trees, wide sidewalks and spectacular views from almost every point make this a true gem on the water.
1720 Cleveland Rd in Biscayne Point is on the market for $1.3 million and defines high-profile, low-maintenance waterfront living. This three-bedroom home has two bathrooms and offers 1,810 square feet of living space. This charming home has recently seen over $500,000 worth of upgrades, including designer kitchen appliances, elegant bathroom features, and spacious common areas that are perfect for entertaining. A simple pathway leads from the home, through the sprawling backyard, and right up to a sparkling private pool with expansive pool deck. Modern features like 11-foot ceilings and quartz countertops make this a perfect luxurious place to call home.
From upscale golf communities to affluent neighborhoods that are tucked away, Miami Beach offers a variety of great neighborhoods for luxury living. While the islands have their fair share of multi-million-dollar mansions, it is possible to live the Miami Beach lifestyle without paying those big Miami Beach prices. They say money can’t buy you happiness, but with $1.5 million you can get some pretty stunning island property, and that’ll make almost everyone happy.
