An exclusive setting on Star Island sets the the magical stage for this rare waterfront residence, recently listed for $37.5 million by Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber of the Jills Zeder Group, affiliated with Coldwell Banker Realty in Miami Beach.
Designed for lavish entertaining and the ultimate in privacy, the residence offers a picture-perfect vision of luxury waterfront living, surrounded by manicured grounds with towering Royal palms, a sparkling swimming pool and Jacuzzi, fountains, expansive plaza decks, a summer kitchen, a 40-foot dock and 100 feet of frontage on Biscayne Bay. Stunning water and garden views are captured from many of the interior spaces.
The interiors have been exquisitely finished with elegant simplicity: soaring ceilings, soffit lighting, magnificent woodwork, enormous windows, and beautiful travertine floors. Long sight lines emphasize the seamless indoor-outdoor flow to covered terraces, lawns, and direct bay access. A dramatic foyer with a sweeping mahogany and travertine staircase captivates upon entry, while a grand living room featuring 30-foot ceilings, a wall of glass, and a fireplace along with an elegant dining area and a spacious entertainment/billiards room appointed with a wet bar and bay views present versatile spaces for hosting intimate parties or grander affairs.
The chef’s kitchen, with garden windows and luxury appliances, provides generous counter and cabinet space as well as a butler’s pantry and a breakfast room.
Also on the main floor are a handsome library/office with built-in mahogany bookshelves and the sensational primary suite, with wraparound windows, pool and bay views, dual walk-in closets, and dual spa-style bathrooms. The upper level features four additional en-suite bedrooms plus spacious terraces for relaxation, yoga and star gazing.
The gated grounds provide ample options for sunset-view al fresco entertaining, dining, and recreation, including a covered outdoor kitchen and bar with a barbecue, a Zen garden, gorgeous plantings, and a poolside cabana with a bath.
With an atmosphere of lush privacy, the property is located close to South Beach, downtown Miami, and the city’s hottest dining, cultural, and entertainment venues. Boaters will appreciate the well-equipped dock as well as the short ride to the Atlantic.
