MIAMI BEACH (CBS4 ) – It’s living in the ultimate lap of luxury.
A 22-thousand square foot 7 bedroom home, with a 7 car garage on the exclusive island of Indian Creek.
That’s where we met Realtor to the rich and famous, Nelson Gonzalez, to give us a “Living Large” grand tour.
“We are asking 45 million dollars” said Gonzalez. It’s now the highest price house listed in Dade County.”
This 3 story mansion with marble floors and 25 foot high ceilings is not the first home for the New York based owner.
“This is his second or third home, and you’re thinking that $45 million is high priced for this house. It’s really not. This is actually not even high priced. If something else were to come on the market, its actually well priced at 45 million! Nelson said.
The sunny side living room has skylights and warm furnishings to keep it bright and happy.
The office / library has a wood burning fireplace and zebra paneled wood built ins.
Feel like a movie? A 10 seat theater complete with a popcorn machine and candy bar just outside screams let’s stay home!
“If you notice, the sound is different in here because it’s got all acoustic tiles on wall” said Nelson.
Throughout the house is a linear diffused air conditioning system, so that air is not uncomfortably blown on anyone.
The powder room with its navy silk padded walls, gold leaf ceilings and antique sink with rare blue bahia marble counter top is elegant and stylish.
The oversized kitchen has 2 refrigerators, 3 ovens and a built-in espresso machine. You can carry that cafecito upstairs without spilling in the beautiful French designed elevator.
Up on the 3rd floor, the master bedroom takes up the entire length of the house from front to back.
“Her” bathroom has a copper soaking tub surrounded by mosaic tiles and a gorgeous view of the Indian Creek golf course.
Downstairs is the party section of the house. A billiard room, a Moroccan room with a humidor and a wine cooler, and a fully equipped gym.
“Does the 45 million include the furniture and stuff in house?”asked Lisa Petrillo .
“It does not include the furniture and stuff, but everything in life is negotiable. That’s what make it fun” said Gonzalez.
Outside-a breathtaking wide bay view. The infinity edge pool sits adjacent to a cabana house that has it all. Its air conditioned, but you can also open the big doors. The Cabana has a massage room and a large “community shower”
“The high end real estate market is on fire” explained Nelson. “It’s making a comeback. The inventory levels are low. Prices are about to spike, so this is a good time to buy”
