We are happy to announce that a one-of-a-kind property is now for sale in Miami Shores. Of course all sellers think their house is special, but take my word for it, this one REALLY is! As Miami Architecture Realtors we are presented with many homes on a daily basis and it’s our job to be objective and let you know when a home is unique and noteworthy.
1195 NE 100 St – Miami Shores
Offered at $1.3 Million Here we have an energy efficient, modern home with careful attention to detail – not just careful attention, but luxurious details everywhere you look. Let’s start with a 3D walk-through model that will let you scrutinize every nook and cranny.
The marketing description reads as follows:
Luxury redefined in this state-of-the-art green home that is not just artist owned and designed, but a piece of art in itself. Top of the line finishes will speak for themselves from smart lighting and security system, to award winning, sculptural range hood, ItalKraft kitchen, geothermal air conditioning system, limited edition artisan Italian flooring tile, automated shades and awnings and so much more! This one of a kind, modern home will impress the most discerning buyers. It’s located on private street East of Biscayne Boulevard on an oversized 11,513 SF lot. Turn-key has never been this good. Property size is 18,000, which includes a 6,000+ easement, making the 11,513 SF size of the lot feel a lot bigger.
From the moment you walk in you know that this is not your regular Miami Shores home. Of course you notice the gorgeous art work and the modern classics in every room, but what’s obvious is that this home was remodeled with no expense spared.
Home Features and Design
3 bedrooms / 2.5 bathrooms Approximately 2708 SF of living space 11,513 SF lot Built in 1953 and remodeled in 2015-16.
Let’s start with the front door. An amazing, oversized solid wood door from Honduras, coated with marine paint. Once you walk in the house, you notice the floor-to-ceiling barn doors with leather finish for every room. Then, there’s the cooling system: linear diffusers instead of your regular square air conditioning grills, Nest thermostat and fire alarms, geothermal cooling system that uses well water for cooling, and to top it off, the return water can be used to heat up the pool. The electric bill for this 2700 SF home is under $200/month during the hot summer months.
The kitchen is out of this world: The range hood is made by an Italian company called Best and it’s a sculptural piece that has won awards for design excellence and most innovative products. It’s custom Italian design by ItalKraft with matte glass doors that are fingerprint free. The appliances are restaurant edition from GE profile. Bosch dishwasher that disappears within the european cabitets and seamless solid surface counters with Kohler Karbon Articulating wall-mount kitchen faucet. Lighting and electrical have been completely redone with LED lighting and Legrand USB outlets and Wi-Fi ready lighting switches. The home also has a state-of-the-art security system with exterior cameras, Ring Smart Video Doorbell, all controlled from your smart phone/device. The flooring is one of my favorite features. They are limited edition, artisan porcelain tiles custom designed by Italian designers – called Refin Ceramiche. Limited edition tiles are also used in the fireplace mantel as well as exterior pool decking. They give you a concrete feel but with a much warmer flavor and remain neutral for any type of decor.
The master bedroom was built with connecting bathroom/walk-in closet to 2nd bedroom of the house. It can easily serve as a nursery, sitting room or office. Although it has an open feel, owners were thoughtful about a private water closet (aka “toilet” in layman’s terms). The double sinks are black Gres basins by Gessi over a solid teak wood counter top with Porsche black matte paint. It also has an oversized shower with rain shower. The master suite opens into its own patio that leads to the pool and has a automated, retractable awning.
From the open dining room, aluminum, oversized, impact-resistant sliding doors open up to the amazing pool area with Italian tile decking, salt-water system and huge retractable awning to keep you cool during the scorching sun. The back has a horizontal, powder coated aluminum exterior fence for privacy. It also has a rear entrance through the alley or service street. I could go on and on with more features, but this is one you have to see in person. Of course it also has custom closet systems, automated shades, working fireplace, automated sprinkler system, termite warranty… but that’s expected with a house of this caliber. Make sure you click on the 3D model above, it will feel like you are inside the home. The home was featured in Curbed Miami as Artsy and Green Home in Miami Shores.
