South of Fifth’s Hottest Townhomes and Condos: Which One Is Right For You?
One of the dilemmas many homebuyers face when moving to the South of Fifth neighborhood is whether to purchase a luxury high-rise condo or a private townhome. Both have their own pros and cons, and deciding on one really comes down to personal preference. If you’re going back and forth between a townhome and a condo, here are a few things to consider:
South of Fifth Townhomes
When you own a South of Fifth townhome, you own both the inside and the outside, including exterior features like the driveway, roof, and lawn. Townhomes are often two-story units, usually separating the common areas from the private bedrooms. A significant benefit to owning a townhome is the privacy. Unlike condos, you don’t have people living above or below you, giving you a bit more privacy, quiet and breathing room in a townhome.
For an extraordinary townhome experience in Miami, the newly developed Louver House takes typical South of Fifth townhome living up a notch. This luxury townhome community offers 12 stunning residences, four of which are still available as of late October. One of those residences is a 2,356-square-foot home going for $3.1 million. Townhomes in this development have beautiful features like stone floors and designer kitchens. Townhomes typically have fewer amenities than condominiums — but this development is different. It offers many of the same luxury features as Miami’s hottest condos, such as a high-tech fitness center, rooftop infinity pool, and outdoor yoga studio.
Another luxury townhome development that is causing a buzz in Miami Beach is Ilona Condo. These expansive townhomes offer spacious outdoor balconies, gourmet kitchens with stainless steel appliances, and is just steps from the beach. These impressive residences average around 1,241 square feet and provide privacy and space in one of Miami’s most upscale neighborhoods.
South of Fifth Condos
In a South of Fifth condo, the interior of the residence belongs to the owner, but the common areas and outside of the residence do not. Condos usually have public amenities, and the HOA fees are generally higher than a townhome since they pay for services like lawn care, staff and general upkeep of the building. Miami Beach is famous for stunning condos all along the beach, such as the highly sought after Continuum building. Composed of two soaring towers, this South of Fifth condo building offers residences ranging from studio suites to large four bedroom units. The condominium complex offers two sparkling pools, an onsite restaurant, a high-tech fitness center and a variety of spacious floor plans and layouts to match any lifestyle.
Murano at Portofino is another example of a VIP condo experience on the water in the South of Fifth neighborhood. This 37-story architectural beauty offers 189 total units ranging from $825,000 to $6.6 million. This oceanfront condo is located at the tip of Miami Beach, close to the coolest nightclubs, trendiest sidewalk boutiques and hottest happy hour spots. The beautiful flow-through residences at Murano at Portofino have floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking water views, chef kitchens, spacious bedrooms and spa-inspired bathrooms with glass and marble features. Luxury amenities such as a bayfront swimming pool, exclusive health and fitness center and outdoor restaurant make it easy to kick back and relax without ever having to leave the property. South of Fifth condominiums like Murano at Portofino are excellent for people looking for an elegant place to call home that is private, spacious, and low-maintenance.
Whether you’re looking for a South of Fifth beachfront townhome or a sprawling unit in one of Miami’s sexiest high-rise buildings, Miami Beach is the place for luxury living. For optimal privacy and lower monthly maintenance fees, a South of Fifth Miami Beach townhouse may be your best bet. For state-of-the-art amenities and convenient living, condos may work better for you. Either way, when you come home to a condo or townhouse in Miami Beach, you are coming home to style, sophistication, and excellence.
