These Celebrity Waterfront Homes In Miami Are For Sale Right NowDecember 9, 2016
With so many big names calling the Miami and Miami Beach area home, it’s entirely possible to live in the former dwelling of an A-list actor or Grammy-winning superstar. Here are some of the celebrity waterfront homes on the market in Miami right now.
Calvin Klein’s Hideaway
At $15 million, this home at 4452 N. Bay Road, previously owned by Calvin Klein, offers the whole package expected of any celebrity waterfront home. This is a 5,800 square feet home with an additional 2,000 square feet in indoor and outdoor entertainment space. Highlights of the interior include five bedrooms, each with ensuite baths, and a large, cleanly designed kitchen. The décor is very simple and neutral throughout — much like Klein’s clothing — which works as a clean canvas for a new owner, or for those looking for something simple yet elegant.
The outdoor space of this Miami Beach waterfront home includes 113 feet of bay frontage, which is visible from the long infinity pool. The outdoor landscaping provides adequate privacy with a large bamboo forest. The bay view is also magnificent from the covered outdoor patio. There is a large outdoor courtyard complete with minimal landscaping and majestic trees as well as several covered outdoor seating spaces for plenty of entertainment space. The whole property has an open and airy vibe.
The Manufacturer’s Mansion
For a larger celebrity-style waterfront home, look no further than 46 Star Island Dr., where the home of Rally Manufacturing founder Marco R. Iacovelli is currently on the market for $65 million. This palatial Star Island waterfront estate is actually the most expensive home on the market right now, and for good reason — the “house” has 18,356 square feet and 250 feet of bay frontage.
Other than the obvious reasons, this home is also unique because it was originally built in 1923 to be the location of the Miami Yacht Club, but later it was converted to a single-family home. Noteworthy features include 10 bedrooms, a luxurious white kitchen, and a personal gym. The home has upscale décor and design throughout, showcasing both simple lines and lavish highlights, all updated for a modern lifestyle.
The grounds transport visitors to a tropical resort with detailed stone pathways and manicured landscaping from the tall palms to low shrubs lining the walks. In the front there is a three-car covered carport and fountain. In the back, blue tile lines four water features. The partially covered patio provides a large outdoor entertaining space. The view that completes this Star Island waterfront home overlooks the bay as well as the city beyond.
Making movies in the Grove
The waterfront home at 3085 Munroe Drive in Coconut Grove is another mammoth listing, asking a whopping $50 million. And even though the price is lower than the Star Island estate, it actually offers more square footage: 20,000. The home is the second priciest among all currently for sale in Miami-Dade County.
This waterfront home, which faces Biscayne Bay in one of Miami’s most tranquil and storied neighborhoods, was designed by filmmaker Alejandro Landes and is a magnificent work of art. The interior has sleek finishes, floating balconies and staircases, and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. Other highlights include a steam room, home theater, and four kitchens for the seven bedrooms.
The exterior features an exposed exoskeleton comprised of teak, glass, and white stucco. There is a rooftop deck in addition to the 73-foot heated infinity-edge pool, all with brilliant views of the water and cityscape. The trees and surrounding landscaping showcase the local foliage and waterway. There is also a water feature around the staircase on the first floor. This waterfront home is a unique way to enjoy the art, architecture, and ocean Miami Beach has to offer.
