A Tour of the Malibu-style Beach House located at 222 Ocean Drive in South Beach – Asking $14,995,000
Tuesday afternoon, I had the pleasure to drop by an open house that my broker, Dora Puig, was holding, so I could see first-hand the amazing new luxury listing she recently landed – a 7,000 square foot, Malibu-style beach house located at 222 Ocean Drive in the South Beach neighborhood known as South of Fifth. It’s not often that you get the chance to visit a single-family home in that neighborhood. In fact, there are only two other single family homes that exist in all of South of Fifth, and this is the only one that is located across the street from the beach, right smack on Ocean Drive. In terms of location, it doesn’t get much better than this. Fortunately, location isn’t the property’s only strong suit. It’s also incredibly sexy. The moment you walk into the recently renovated, three-story home, you are greeted with soaring 20-foot ceilings and an elegantly appointed, white spiral staircase. The luxury home consists of 4 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 2 half baths, and includes a theater room and bar; a custom wine cellar; 11-inch wide plank Oscar Ono rustic wood floors; a custom kitchen with best-in-class appliances by Viking, Miele, and Sub-Zero; a private, rooftop deck with pool and summer kitchen; and an air conditioned 2-car garage to boot. This is the type of property that will appeal to a special kind of buyer – one who fully appreciates its uniqueness and location, and, of course, has close to $15M to indulge. As for the rest of you, the accompanying photos will have to do.
