This $36.5 Million Mansion Comes With A Private Beach (And Everything Else Too)
Mansions this close to the beach resemble a mirage—like some hallucinatory paradise castaways hope to wash upon after a shipwreck. But this fantasy is real, a tropical dream house listed for sale by Compass’ Chad Carroll for $36.5 million.
Gilligan, Skipper, Ginger and Thurston Howell III would have loved this kind of island-style living. If first impressions are the clincher, this estate won’t last long on the market.
Nestled on a waterfront peninsula, the Miami estate is its own resort, tucked between a private white sand beach and a protected mangrove reserve to the east. All that’s absent is a sea plane.
Located in Coral Gables’ exclusive double-gated community of Tahiti Beach Island (aptly named), the sprawling Tuscan-style residence boasts 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a massive pool mere yards from the beach—just in case the bay isn’t big enough for you to wade in.
Tahiti Beach Island is a “neighborhood” of only 26 waterfront estates—all offering uber privacy and security. Neighbors include NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen and baseball superstar Manny Machado.
“A property like this is an extremely rare find,” says Carroll. “We don’t see estates like this go to market often. 4 Tahiti Beach Island Road is one of only two homes in the community that has a private beach and it’s one of the largest prime waterfront lots you’re going to find throughout all of Miami.”
Expansive contemporary interiors showcase two kitchens, a home theatre, a 450-bottle wine tasting room, elevator, fitness center, and a spa with sauna, steam and massage rooms. Double master bedrooms are connected by a secret staircase and a secret door.
Clearly this residence isn’t just for the stranded. It’s designed to relax and entertain family and friends on an elite level. Seemingly dropped into one of Miami’s most affluent locales, the three-story home is designed by architect Ramon Pacheco, known for his striking grand Tuscan façades.
He infused coffered ceilings, European oak wood floors and custom fireplaces into a residence where views and light are magnified in virtually every room. Luxury bathrooms are marbleized.
Large outdoor terraces and patios overlook the never-ending heated pool/spa and 500-plus feet of Biscayne Bay frontage. Covered terraces soar 20-to-40-feet high, for entertaining rain or shine.
“If you’re looking for lot size, exclusivity, security and a home of this caliber, it’s the only one available in Miami right now,” says Carroll. “You have every ultra-luxe amenity available at your fingertips. You’ll never want to leave.”
Just like Gilligan’s Island.
