Don’t get confused, this palatial pad may share a name with the famed Lake Como hotel, but this new-to-market Miami stunner can be yours for the cool asking price of $19 million. Located at 1525 West 24th Street in Miami Beach, the home underwent $2 million of interior and exterior renovations over the last two years, and features a number of high-end amenities.

The 9,696 square-foot, three-story Mediterranean style home is in high demand not only for its Sunset Island location, but also for its rather extensive piece of property. Known as a “double waterfront,” the home sits on a little more than half an acre.

“To put it into perspective, even with the 9, 626 square-foot home on the property, there was still room to install a small soccer field with regulation size goals, a trampoline, a playground and a lawn, with land to spare. ” said Gilles Rais, a Coldwell Banker Previews International® property specialist and realtor for the property.

Jill Hertzberg of The Jills, the property’s co-listed realtor, agrees. “Living on a guarded island is like being on your own oasis just outside Miami, within walking distance of Lincoln Road. It reminds me of the Hamptons on the outskirts of New York City.”

Inside, find seven en-suite bedrooms, eight full and two half bathrooms, dual two car garages and 156 feet of deep waterfront with docking for a mega yacht.

The estate boasts six custom-made Fendi Casa chandeliers with an approximate value of $1 million, marble and hardwood floors, custom wood work and custom Fendi Casa furnishings. Features of the home include a grand foyer with imperial staircase, formal living room, chef’s kitchen with Miele, Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, wine storage, dining room, club room, rooftop terrace, and an elevator. The interior furnishings are not included in the price, but are available for purchase.

The master suite encompasses the entire second floor and features expansive views, his and hers bathrooms with steam showers, a guest-room sized master closet and spacious terrace. The six guest suites feature private bathrooms and walk-in closets. The exterior of the home is equally impressive, featuring a courtyard with center fountain, covered terrace on first and second floors with cascading steps to the pool and spa.

Security and safety features have also been updated and include a Sonos® whole house control system, two-remote controlled gates, one walking gate and a whole house generator.

What do you think? Is this your next home?
