Located on exclusive Star Island, this exquisite bay-front estate offers a world of privacy tucked behind hand crafted gates designed by an Italian sculptor. The home features imported limestone floors, a 35-foot domed fresco ceiling, Venetian stucco walls and detailed ceilings. There also is a roof top terrace and wide bay views.
This beachfront estate in Naples was designed by Marc Michaels. It encompasses over 12,000 square feet and features custom built-ins, wood-paneled walls and mosaic inlays. There also is also a state-of-the-art home theatre and cabana room with Bamboo ceilings.
With commanding views over Morgan’s Cove in Port Royal, this new construction was built by Royal Gulf Construction. The property encompasses 127 feet on the water with spectacular views. There also is an outdoor kitchen and gas fireplace.
This estate home is located on some of the most covered real estate in Key Biscayne. The home sits directly on Biscayne Bay with 140 feet of water frontage. It affords panoramic views of the downtown Miami Skyline and stunning open bay sunsets.
