A Miami spec home perfect for the most discerning of billionaires has hit the market for $36 million.
Developed by Douglas Elliman's Oren Alexander with his father, Shlomy Alexander, the home's price could go up to $43 million or even more — that is, if you opt to also buy some of its jaw-dropping extras, namely a 1948 Jaguar XK120, a 55-foot VanDutch yacht, and $1 million worth of Minotti furniture.
The home, in Miami's ritzy Bal Harbour neighborhood, was designed by award-winning architect Chad Oppenheim, who most famously worked on director Michael Bay's mansion in Los Angeles.
"Our main goals were to simply create the best lifestyle experience possible," Oppenheim told Business Insider. "The Alexanders understood what we wanted to do. I'm happy they allowed us to explore those possibilities."
The home offers more than 17,000 square feet of livable indoor and outdoor space.
You can't get much closer to the ocean than this. The home is on one of only two inlets in Miami Beach. "The reason you have a sand bar and such clear water is that you're only 500 feet from the inlet," Oren Alexander told Business Insider. The lot has a sense of seclusion thanks to its proximity to Oleta River State Park, where no further construction can take place.
Alexander and Oppenheim said that they've seen a variety of sea life from the home's backyard, from sting rays and sea turtles to manatees and dolphins. "It looks like 'Finding Nemo' out there," Oppenheim said. "From every room you can see gardens and water."
