Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate - Bal Harbour

Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate - Bal Harbour Bal Harbour Luxury Real Estate is exclusive, convenient and world renowned.  It's an island of it's own with Bal Harbour Shops just a stone throw away.  Where else can you find famed designer shops in one place?  Put together lavish living with shopping, and you have a great combination.  And now with the St. Regis Resort and Residences under construction - Bal Harbour Real Estate will be flawless. You may argue that Bal Harbour is not part of Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate - and technically you would be right - but I place them in the same category because Miami Beach and Bal Harbour are, in my opinion, in similar categories when it comes to luxury.

I've been seeing the unusual roof structure of this house for a while when we go by on our boat - it has a vaulted roof detail that can be appreciated in some of the photos.  It's contemporary architecture stands out from the surrounding context and the finishes are flawless.  The house was built new in 2008 and has 100 feet of bay frontage very close, direct ocean access, since the Haulover Inlet is extremely close.  Here's what the MLS description reads:

Brand New Contemporary Waterfront Home located in Guard Gated Bal Harbour.This stunning home is completely furnished & appointed w/the finest amenities. Built w/ solid concrete & Impact glass through-out.  Also features a "smart system", 3 car garage, rooftop observation deck, infinity pool & jacuzzi, triple staircases, high ceilings, gourmet kitchen w/double appliances, boat lift & dock, outdoor terraces off every room w/sweeping water views. One of a kind design and finishes. Just bring your toothbrush.

(I have to admit that the "just bring your toothbrush" comment has always made me laugh - that and "priced to sell" .....but I digress.) Miami Beach Contemporary Home Property Features:
