The ultimate pool party pad! Miami Grecian inspired mansion on an island with a two-story pool, roof terrace and captain's watchtower with windmill-like boat sails for shade hits the market for $10.9million
A Miami Beach mansion built in 2003 for a life of luxury is on sale in the exclusive Hibiscus Island neighborhood for $10.9million.
The mansion, built by local real estate developer John Turchin, features six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a guest house, and access to the waterfront big enough for a yacht.
It also provides great views of the Biscayne Bay and sightlines stretch out to Palm Island and Star Island.
The most intriguing feature of the house is the two-story pool that stretches across the property, giving owners the ability to look out on to the bay while swimming in their own private oasis.
The mansion includes a roof terrace that has sails rising out from the top of the property. The roof terrace also contains a 50-foot captain's watchtower offering more incredible views.
Robb Reportnotes the mansion takes style cues from a wide variety of sources, ranging from the Grecian pools to elements of Hollywood, which includes a steel ventilation hood reminiscent of the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz.
The mansion is adorned with white walls, giving the property a clean feel. The bathrooms are shaped like seashells and include empty shells embedded in the walls.
While the 19,000ft home is for a single family, there's also plenty of opportunity to host guests for lengthy stays. A guest house sits pretty on the property. By the waterfront, there's also a captain's house with a kitchenette and a bathroom.
The mansion's massive feel has also lent itself well to pop culture, with the Zillowlisting noting that the mansion has served as the backdrop for photo shoots and music videos.
Hibiscus Island is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in all of Florida. Less than 400 residents live there, according to the 2010 census, and properties often sell for several million dollars.
Turchin is a key figure in Turchin Construction, which has built hundreds of high-rise properties in Miami over the decades. Turchin also developed nightclubs Club Nu and The Institute back in the 1980s.
The property last sold in May 2008 for $10.6million.
