Golden Beach Lot Where Super Contempo Mod House Once Stood & FDR Winter White House Might Have Stood, Sells for $10M

July 30, 2016 by Sean McCaughan


This zany, ultra-contempo Golden Beach house designed by Carlos Zapata was built in 1994 and sold for $12 million in 2014, then mostly torn down, with the land sold just recently for $10 million. Why? Well, Real Deal has a few more details, but it still doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. What’s even stranger is that allegedly the property was the former site of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Winter White House, which stood there until 1994. When the Zapata house was on the market and I was running Curbed Miami, back in 2014, Iooked into the FDR claim and found little to no evidence to back it up. As I wrote there: “A little digging turns up little evidence to support this, except that Eleanor Roosevelt rented a house down the street, twice. A little more investigating might be in order.” Considering it’s FDR, you’d think there would be some more documentation.
