Miami Beach has homes and then it has HOMES. This particular house is not just the epitome of seductive contemporary architecture, but it's one of Chad Oppenheim's sculptures. I've talked about Oppenheim's architecture many times here in Miamism.com, starting with Ten Museum Park's poetic attitude. His architecture is profound, intense, esoteric, austere and honest. But enough about the architect and let's talk about 40 S Hibiscus Drive.
The home boasts 8,000 square feet of living space with 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and 2 half-baths. It sits on a 24,000 square foot lot with 120 feet of water frontage with a a South-West exposure and direct ocean access. It was built new in 2010 and designed by renowned architect Chad Oppenheim (I can't reiterate this enough). It has an amazing infinity pool that seems to flow into the home's interior space and blend magically with Biscayne Bay. To think that Shaq's home sold for $16 Million (just next door in Star Island) and was a gut job, let's you know that this house is a great buy.
The MLS description reads:
Spectacular residence designed by award winning architect Chad Oppenheim overlooking the bay of Miami Beach. This newly constructed property located on gated Hibiscus Island offers the best finishes throughout. Features include Kreon lighting, 80kw generator, and a fully integrated Crestron system that controls everything from the lighting to the extensive security system. The spectacular grounds spoil you with an 82' pool spanning two sides of the house.
