Art Basel Special: Top Miami Trophy Properties Day 2
Last week, we were invited for a tour of the Penthouse Collection at 1 Homes South Beach and WOW! The way that the residences and hotel have been redesigned by internationally renowned Brazilian interior designer, Debora Aguiar, it is as though you are living in nature in the most glamorous way.
Ms Aguiar used an abundance of plant life in the most creative ways, driftwood finishings to bring the feel of a beach house into the development and oversized windows and terraces to really celebrate the project’s oceanfront location. She also tied in all of the modern conveniences and elegant touches that you would expect in a South Beach trophy property. To be honest, after the tour, I could have filled the entire week-long series with trophy residences here, but let’s start with one.
For those who have not yet visited 1 Homes, it is located along Collins just between the W South Beach (where Zaha Hadid lived) and the Faena District. It is walking distance to the Bass Museum of Art as well as the Miami Beach Convention Center, which makes for another reason it should be included on this week’s list.
Penthouse 1610 is located on the southeast corner of the building, offering amazing sunrise views of the ocean and plenty of large windows for those who enjoy the afternoon breeze. It has 4 bedrooms, 5.5 baths and a den over two levels. There is 3,955 square feet of interior living space and 745 square feet of terraces overlooking the pool area and beach. The apartment is fully finished and furnished by Rose Ink Workshop, a local interior design company founded by Liubasha Rose, the famed former Vice President of Design at Starwood Capital Group. It is estimated that $150,000 was spent on furnishings in each room of this penthouse.
Owners enjoy all the privileges and conveniences of resort living at this LEED certified property while having access to four elevated oceanfront swimming pools, an onsite SoulCycle studio, a 18,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, priority seating at three exceptional restaurants and bars from award-winning chef Tom Colicchio, and a stylish rooftop pool and restaurant-bar with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Miami skyline.
The penthouse is available for purchase for $20 million including all of the services offered to members of 1 Homes. You are also welcome to use any of the other 1 Homes locations, which include Brooklyn and Central Park in New York as well as Cabo San Lucas in Mexico and will soon include West Hollywood, Haitang Bay China, and Silicon Valley.
