Early arrivals to South Beach relished the idea of being able to walk out the back door, sink into the sand, and stroll out to the beach. Over the decades which followed, high rises replaced sleepy old homes and only a few low rise hotels survived the "modernation" of the 90's. For the first time in many years, the home where you can stroll out the back door to the tip of Miami Beach has reappeared! This time it is also a luxurious mix of superior fixtures, appliances, and a view that the early arrivals never imagined. The idea that a cruise ship would float by your window would never occur to them, nor would the idea that Joe's and that amazing steakhouse from back in Manhattan thrive within a five minute walk as well. The water is still azure blue dancing on a beige mix of sand and sea shells but the hottest hours of the day now occur twelve hours later.
As you enter the townhouse, you arrive to the top floor and a view that would make the ancient developer of modern Miami Beach, Carl Fisher, freeze in his tracks. In the foreground, just beyond the green hedges, is the Government Cut and the extremes of boats it presents. One minute it is the shrimp boat, and the next it is the Queen Mary. It is difficult to know whether the sunrise is better than sunset from the expansive glass which is the south wall of this apartment.
As presented, this unique floor plan allows open entertainment and a lifestyle that is as restful or as playful as you'd like. Since the townhouse is layered from the top down, late nighters can sleep the day away on the lowest levels while the others take the rhythm of the warm sunny day for which this home was created.
Its current owner has left you blissful choices which allow you to choose not only colors and flooring, but the basic layout of how you want to live in the space. As is, it was born as twin units joined at the hip, these twins become one lovely home when the common wall is removed.
If your needs are for much less space, Townhouse 14 is available for separate purchase for one half of the asking price. (Donald Trump did this math for us!). This is, of course, subject to prior sale as they say.
Wonderful in any configuration are the twin garages attached at ground level, yielding 4 spaces which allow you to directly enter the home bypassing the concierge if you so desire.
