As the door swings open and you pass through the foyer, you are immediately rewarded with splendid views. This magnificent living room is full south facing opening to a casual sitting area nestled next to a peaceful pool, manicured lawn, a dock, and beautiful Biscayne Bay.
In the distance, to the south, across the blue waters, rise the towers of downtown Miami embraced in the distant foreground by a graceful arching bridge. The end of this garden is dominated by a mature trinity of exceedingly tall palms guarding watch over the dock and its yacht. Unlike homes permitted in 2003, this estate enjoys dockage placed quietly to the side of its important view lines- not in the middle of the back yard. Lawns are ample for entertaining and the nearly magic weather of Miami invites just this pleasure.
Returning to the main house, adjacent to the living room and just beyond the fireplace, is a cozy den, a guest bath, and a downstairs library. On the other side of the living room and sharing its views to the water, is a formal dining room. At the top of the stairs is a magnificent master bedroom suite with elegant marble bath and shower overlooking the Bay and Miami Beach beyond. Its formal closets are designed to support a major wardrobe with cedar flooring and all of the built-ins for efficient retrieval of necessary items. Returning downstairs, behind the entry foyer hides a nearly industrial kitchen with cozy breakfast nook beyond as well as ample storage for silver, china, and party items. The kitchen is also the entry point for the staff quarters, with its separate zone for ironing linens and 2 full staff bedrooms on the street-side of the main house.
Back on the waterside of the residence, one finds a gazebo designed for large-scale entertainment with glass sliders to take full advantage of the skyline views. Within this structure is a small kitchen with its warming ovens and private entry. Adjacent to this blissful gazebo is a cottage structure, which accommodates 4 guest bedrooms in the grand style, replete with formal fabrics and wall coverings. Its final bedroom is a treasure, which opens through French doors onto a private formal garden.
As if the expansive waterfront main house with 6 bedrooms was not enough, immediately across the drive is an additional 6 bedroom guesthouse separately for sale under MLS number D9864672.
