Miama Beach, FL8,000 sf

Located in North Miami Beach on a high floor in, this spectacular apartment faces east overlooking the beautiful blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean. Originally two apartment units, this residence combines both resulting in one grand 8,000 sf unit. To take advantage of the ocean view, the main public spaces were organized along east facing balconies. After stepping off the Elevator and leaving the Entry Vestibule, one walks into the Central Hall that connects the Library, Living Room and Dining/Kitchen spaces.

The floor plan was purposely left often as not to obstruct views and encourage the family to be together and enable a dramatic space for parties. Architectural thresholds define each space as one travels from room to room. From the Library one views the Dining/Kitchen Area and vice versa. Elements of oak punctuate the apartment and unify all spaces. A Bar off the Central Hall contains two wine cellars and a beverage refrigerator. The Dining Room is combined with a Seating Area which is just off the Kitchen and Breakfast Area.

A two part Kitchen with a long kitchen counter of stone and oak face east toward the ocean. The Dining/Kitchen allow of multiple ways to meet and dine together. A Home Theater, seats six and integrates a small pantry. The west side of the apartment unit faces the inter-coastal waters. Bedrooms and His and Hers Home Offices are situated in a tranquil area of the apartment to enjoy the late day sunsets. A Master Bedroom Suite with Master Bathroom, Walk-In-Closet and Master Bedroom cap off this stunning modern, sophisticate and informal apartment.
