This contemporary 2-Story bayfront estate is located in the highly exclusive Morningside gated community. This magnificent 7,011 square foot home sits on an oversized 47,010 square foot lot and is complete with nine bedrooms, 7 full-bathrooms and 2 half-bathrooms. It is also privately gated and includes a separate guesthouse.

The historic home was originally built in 1939, but has since been fully restored and renovated with attention to every detail and luxury. No expense was spared in the renovation, featuring the finest materials and designer finishes throughout.

You are immediately awed as you first walk in through an elegant entry foyer with a winding oak wood staircase. Beyond, is a spacious living room with a gorgeous stone wood-burning fireplace, custom designed goatskin walls and 3 sets of French doors that lead to a covered outdoor seating area with direct open views to Biscayne Bay and the beautiful Miami Beach skyline.

The gourmet kitchen features handmade Cuban tiles; exquisite Carrara marble center island, countertops and backsplash; farmhouse sink, custom cabinetry and a pantry with custom built-ins. It’s fully equipped with the top of the line appliances and a butler’s kitchen adjacent to the main kitchen.

The formal dining room has access to a truly welcoming outdoor lounge area. An adjacent breakfast room provides mesmerizing sunrise views over the bay. Also on the first floor, there is a chic library with serene views to the backyard, pool, and bay.

Upstairs, the lovely master suite faces the open bay with a large private balcony made of natural coral stone. The suite sports whitewashed oak floors and the walls are painted with a special radio frequency blocker designed to stop analogue and pulsed digital signals from exterior sources providing a perfect night of sleep.

The master bathroom includes Brown Imperatore marble floors and slab countertops, dual sinks, a voluminous walk-in closet with custom built-ins, a Waterworks soaking tub, a walk-in glass/marble rain and steam shower, a private water closet, heated floors and Toto toilet.

Outside, the estate boasts approximately 151 feet of waterfront, a new seawall, and a 35-foot private dock. The bayfront beach cabana is ideal for entertaining with a bar and seating, a great summer kitchen, a sink & refrigerator, and a half-bathroom with an outdoor shower.

The backyard is full of beautifully manicured grounds, soaring royal palms, tropical landscaping, and full outdoor lighting. The sprawling heated pool has a natural coral stone pool deck and open seating areas, as well as an outdoor fireplace on a private sand area with open seating and a bayside hammock.

With multiple outdoor covered and open seating areas, this property is beyond ideal for entertaining day and night. There is a custom outdoor state-of-the-art security camera surveillance system throughout the grounds and all windows and doors are hurricane impact resistant.

Whether you enjoy hosting guests, or you love relaxing privately by the pool, or perhaps you prefer to go out to the nearby Design District, Wynwood, or Miami Beach, this fabulous home really has it all!
