Looking for a new beachfront property? Look no further. Miami-Dade County’s newest luxury listing, 1 Casuarina Concourse in Coral Gables, is now on the market. The 20,862-square-foot estate, located in the exclusive gated waterfront community of Gables Estates, is perched on a 3.6-acre lot that juts out into Biscayne Bay, providing spectacular 270-degree water and skyline views and 937 feet of water frontage including a private beach.
“This estate is absolutely exceptional in every way and has attracted the interest of several Miami notables in the past, including a major sports star,” said Jill Hertzberg of The Jills, the listing agent. “With the recent additions, it presents a rare level of luxury, even for Miami.”
Built in 2000, the Mediterranean-inspired mansion is a showstopper from the moment of arrival, where a more than 100-year-old Tanzanian Baobab tree – deemed a historical landmark – offers a dramatic welcome. The sprawling, meticulously cared for grounds feature lush, mature landscaping highlighted by a century-old banyan tree, extensive lighting and security cameras, koi pond, fully lighted tennis/basketball court and a cabana with mini-kitchen, full bath and storage closet that could be converted to guest quarters. A large heated pool and spa overlook the bay, and the 100-foot-long dock can accommodate boats up to 130 feet long.
The three levels of interior are every bit as impressive as the property’s prominently showcased water views. The main floor includes both a chef’s and separate family kitchen, spacious formal dining room with 1,500-bottle wine room, family room with a drop-down projector and Savant system, corporate office with private bath, a his office/den and hers office/library, children’s playroom, three powder rooms and a guest bedroom with full bath. Additional amenities include an elevator, impact-resistant glass and doors, service entrance, three fireplaces, two built-in saltwater aquariums and an aviary.
On the second level, the home’s opulent master suite features a fireplace, his-and-hers walk-in closets, a private balcony and incredible, sweeping bay-to-ocean views. An en suite bath offers a steam shower, soaking tub, dual vanities and separate water closets. Additional spaces on the upper floor include three generously sized bedrooms, each with a full bath and walk-in closet, and a gallery room designed to house the owner’s art collection.
The lower level contains a large game/billiard room with kitchenette, full gym, boxing room, massage room, two-bedroom nanny’s quarters, staff room and breakroom with kitchen, and an attached guest apartment with master bedroom, guest bedroom, office, kitchen, laundry area and separate entrance.
In case you’re wondering “who can afford this,” the property is currently owned by automotive mogul Alan Potamkin and Dr. Brigit Rok-Potamkin. Car sales pay well, hmm?
Seriously, what more could you want? We look forward to seeing who purchases this gorgeous dream home.
