South Florida is known for plenty of things—flashy lifestyles, beautiful people and beaches, and luxury waterfront properties come to mind, and truly, what’s not to love? If you’ve got the finances, why not have fun? There are so many ways to effectively use a dense wallet, but one of our favorites happens to be in mansion-form.
Some people may wonder how South Florida millionaires spend their money—is it on the nightlife? No, friends, it’s on the real estate. There’s a reason people flock to the glimmering beaches of Miami, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and everywhere in between. South Florida is sizzling with amazing architectural feats… they just happen to be where people live.
To honor the wonders that money can do to a house, let’s take a look at South Florida’s most expensive homes. Some, you’ll see, have their own design quirks, but they all have one thing in common: they’re expensive, and they’re on the market right now.
Behold The 5 Most Expensive Homes in South Florida
5. White-and Blue Bay Views – $35.9 Million
With a rooftop swimming pool, this ultra-luxury, resort-style home is a contender for favorites already. Brimming with modern, clean blue-and-white design, the space is Miami to a T, with extravagant finishes and the perfect pool for a high-class party.
When Biscayne Bay is your backdrop, there is nowhere you’d rather be at sunset than this upper North Bay Road masterpiece.
This home last sold in 2008 for 3 million during the crash.
4. Superfluous Bliss in South Beach – $39 Million
They said it, not us—this Collins Avenue penthouse at the Regalias is full of “superfluous bliss.”
And they’re right. Modern design and opulence reign king in this Miami Beach castle, designed and fully furnished by Architectural Digest designer Charles Allem.
This 6-bedroom home perches 46 floors above the ocean and features a 10-seat movie theatre, 1,100-square-foot game room, and 1,500-square-foot master bathroom complete with a sauna and steam room.
3. Lush Mediterranean Landscape – $45 Million
You might like spending your time amongst the beautifully curated, exotic landscaping along the 2.38 acres of manicured grounds.
You’ll also be on the Intracoastal, of course, so don’t worry about where you’ll put your boat.
There will also be areas for you to put your wine, work, relax outdoors, and go for a swim.
2. Tahiti Beach Tuscan – $45 Million
This Tuscan-style “unique estate home” sits on a 62,051-square-foot lot in the gated Tahiti Beach Island community of Coral Gables. This gorgeous home has natural beach trees, perfect for hanging a hammock.
21,235 square feet, in addition to your private beach, two kitchens, gym, sauna, or expansive heated pools.
All of these features may shy compared to the sweeping ocean views, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.
Star of Star Island – $49 Million
Are you even surprised? If anyone has lived in South Florida for long, they know about Star Island’s pricey Miami reputation.
Even if you haven’t lived down here, you could probably assume a similar scenario by the island’s name alone.
This small slice of land suspended in Biscayne Bay is as beautiful—and exclusive—as it sounds. There are only 34 homes on the land.
Put your feet up while lounging in one of the many pool chairs on this 1.83-acre estate’s pool deck, or just enjoy the “unparalleled, unobstructed wide open water views of Biscayne Bay” it offers. Either way, the fact that it’s on the market for the first time in 44 years still stands (tennis court and amazing master bathroom included).
Now let’s talk about #Goals, no matter how big or small we can help you finance the home of your dreams.
