Miami Beach Luxury Real Estate – La Gorce Island

La Gorce Island is as exclusive as it gets and known for it’s grand scale mansions with generous land.  Although there were no sales in La Gorce Island in 2008 or this year, it still remains one of the most sought out places to live when talking about Miami Beach Luxury Homes.  There are currently 11 homes for sale in La Gorce Island and range in price between $1,790,000 for a non-waterfront home located at 1 La Gorce Circle and $25,000,000 for Villa Okto, located at 88 La Gorce Circle (designed by Touzet Studio with 260′ of protected waterfront property).

Unfortunately the Ferrari photographed above is not included with the sale of the home.

98 La Gorce Circle

Listed for $11,500,000 $14,800,000 <<not a typo, price WAS increased.

This Mid-century beauty was totally remodeled and sits on a 32,953 square foot piece of waterfront land. It’s a modest 7,848 square foot home with seven bedrooms, 7 bathrooms and 1 powder room.  It is a bayfront home with no fixed bridges and direct ocean access and this one doesn’t have long, drawn out idle zones that take forever to get to the ocean.  It is obvious that attention to detail has been paid by the owners and the land is nothing short of spectacular.

The MLS description reads:

Best deal in prestigious La Gorce Island.  7,850 sq.ft. of open living areas, providing access to the pool and pation deck.  The luxurious wet bar, the gourmet kitchen, the foyer entry with built-in wine cellar highlights the first floor.  Master suite occupies the second floor with his and hers bathrooms.  Seven bathrooms total all equipped with the latest innovation of rain showers and intelligent toilets.  Dock for 160 foot yacht.  Completely renovated in 2008 including Italian Venetian walls.

(I personally would have named the toilet manufacturer like “Toto” for example, rather than identifying “intelligent toilets” – but either way…..you know the owners spent some bucks on their water-closets).
