William Pierce, the No.1 Coldwell Banker Associate in Southeast Florida, has just presented La Brisa, an opulent waterfront mansion listed at $65 million and located in Coconut Grove in the heart of Miami.
Miami Beach, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/20/2014 -- La Brisa has a total of 17,141 square feet of living space, including 3,338 square feet of terraces and covered porches. Including its two-bedroom guesthouse, it has nine bedrooms, eight bathrooms, and three half-bathrooms. The large swimming pool and sunken fire pit are surrounded by a coral patio capable of hosting 250 people, making the home ideal for entertainment.
The mansion is located at 3551 Main Highway situated on a vast lot spanning 6.9 acres, among the largest properties in Coconut Grove. Despite its size and central location, La Brisa is secluded from street view and accessible only by private gate. Moreover, it is surrounded by abundant tropical landscaping – including royal palms, banyans, oak, and more – much of it decades old, creating a tranquil and verdant atmosphere.
“This is an extremely rare opportunity to purchase not just part of Miami’s colorful history, but to own a tract of land that large in the heart of Miami’s famed Coconut Grove neighborhood with 207-feet of waterfront on Biscayne Bay,” noted Pierce. “As you pass through the front gates, it’s as if you are traveling back in time. But yet, you’re still just steps from the restaurants and stylish boutiques of Coconut Grove.”
The estate itself sits atop an ancient coral reef that is 23 feet above sea level, with views of both Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. The property has 207 feet of waterfront, as well as a protected 536-foot canal to its north, which includes a boat slip for large yachts and direct ocean access.
Le Brisa’s distinct architectural details include a multi-colored tile roof, original woodwork on the upper-floor galleries, exquisitely restored keystones above the entryways, arched doors and windows, and several wrought-iron and wood balconies.
About La Brisa
The Mediterranean-style mansion was built in the early 20th century by Kiehnel and Elliott, among the most iconic architectural firms in the region’s history. Their legacy is reflected in such iconic period buildings as the Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart (formerly El Jardin), the Coconut Grove Playhouse, the Bryan Memorial Methodist Church (now Bet-Ovadia Chabad of the Grove), and Miami Senior High School.
This momentous listing comes shortly after William Pierce presented Le Palais Royal, another South Florida mansion priced at $139 million, the most expensive property in the United States. The elite Realtor has an established track record for specializing in such high-end and exceptional properties.
