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.
Playing into the senses of Chad Oppenheim and Shlomy Alexander’s Modernity
We borrow from nature the space upon which we build. – Tadao Ando
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.
