Listing of the Day

Location: Bal Harbour, Florida
Price: $33 million

This contemporary house sits about 300 yards from Baker’s Haulover Inlet, one of only two inlets in Miami Beach where the ocean meets the bay.

If you’re a boater, you have instant access to the ocean, said listing agent Oren Alexander of Douglas Elliman. “If you’re a swimmer, you always have clear, clean water to swim in,” he said.

“It’s the best of both worlds—you’re in a tropical oasis yet within an urban environment,” Mr. Alexander said.

How to model a $36 million mansion

Miami has been synonymous with modernism ever since architects like Morris Lapidus and L. Murray Dixon descended upon South Beach during the art deco era. Current-day Miami is home to numerous equally talented architects, including a handful—such as Bernardo Fort-Brescia, Kobi Karp and Rene Gonzalez—whom the Magic City can proudly call homegrown.

Yet, as this stunning property suggests, few have a flair for blending modernism with monumentalism quite like Chad Oppenheim. Set in the exclusive estates section of Bal Harbour, 252 Bal Bay Drive is a new-build, eight-bedroom waterfront estate sprawling over 14,000 square feet. Along with a private dock and translucent infinity-edge pool, the home comes with a pair of indoor tropical gardens, as well as a second-floor art gallery, all for a purchase price of $36 million.
