Around the interior, you can find a kitchen designed by Italian brand Veneta Cucine, skip climbing stairs via a glass elevator and enjoy the throbbing beats from a built-in sound and security system.
Not enough for you? Then enjoy an art gallery that currently houses a toppermost Ducati motorcycle, sports an impressive stretch of private waterfront and an infinity pool that features a 10-foot high waterfall. The garage is also equipped with not one, but six Tesla power walls to point up the environmental concern of the owners.
This tony home is located in Miami’s Belle Meade neighborhood. The ultra-contemporary mansion favors the most current style in that it includes a glass-heavy geometric construction.
And as it happens to be located in Miami, outdoor entertaining is a required inclusion. An expansive covered patio with a kitchen is ideal for accommodating the help as they prepare the latest in seafood dishes and mingle with the stars to dispense cocktails.
The guests can arrive at the party – perhaps even have their ships valet parked – as the home is equipped with a deep-water dock and a boat lift.
The Belle Meade community, shaped like a sock, is part of the Upper East Side community and close by the Bayside Historic District, the MiMo Historic District, and Little Haiti. A gated community, it offers residents privacy and security and the only entryway to the island is located on NE 9th Avenue.
The community has one main gate and entrance point just east of Biscayne Boulevard and as a resident of Belle Meade Island, you’ll have a second guard gate to clear after crossing over the bridge from the mainland. Belle Meade is quiet and hidden on the bay just east of Biscayne Boulevard and within close proximity to Miami Beach, Midtown, the Design District and Downtown Miami.
During the course of planning Belle Meade, the land contours were manipulated to make sure the entire neighborhood sloped gradually down to seal level from a high point along Biscayne Boulevard. Belle Meade Island was separated from the mainland in 1925 and stone cut when the canal was dug, was probably used to line the riverfront retaining walls. Some of these walls survive upstream of Belle Meade Island.
The average home in the neighborhood generally comes with 5 to 7 bedrooms and a price tag between $4 million and $9 million respectively. Should you decide to summer in, say, France, you should easily be able to rent your new home for somewhere in the neighborhood of $30,000 a month.
But fear not, the neighbors are on the case to make sure things don’t get out of hand around the island. A recent issue with an Airbnb listing that listed a nearby home as a “great party space” was taken down. In a picture taken by a neighbor, one of the security guards at the entrance assured homeowners that help would be available should it be required..
Walter Vandersypt, a neighbor, told WSVN.com that, “It is obvious it is a business. Last weekend I was surprised to see very, very young people there.”
While it’s no Star Island, it is located in one of the six central areas of Miami where the celebs choose to put down roots.
