A modern waterfront mansion in Coral Gables, FL, that just landed on the market is already under contract. Listed for $59.5 million, it’s this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®.
The pricey property on a private reserve was inspired by Aman Resorts, a luxury hotel chain. Dubbed Villa Serena, the estate is aimed at “the buyer who appreciates the natural splendor of the tropics yet desires a modern aesthetic,” according to the listing details.
Clearly, a buyer appreciated everything the place had to offer—the property is already in pending status. And despite the sky-high price, it’s easy to see the appeal.
It was designed by a local architect, Cesar Molina, who focuses on luxury residential and resort properties in South Florida and the Caribbean. His firm states that one of its goals is “to integrate contemporary technology with regionally appropriate architecture.”
The resortlike atmosphere starts with the lush landscaping surrounding the grounds, a water wall, and the seamless integration of the outdoor spaces into the enormous interior.
The 30,000-square-foot layout features nine bedrooms, 14 full bathrooms, and two half-baths spread across multiple structures.
Offering privacy and security, the estate can easily host 100 guests outside in a climate-controlled pavilion with a full kitchen and TVs.
The main house includes a massive living area with vaulted ceilings and walls of glass. A glossy and minimalist white kitchen offers a built-in espresso maker and includes a breakfast area. Other luxe amenities include an elevator, safe room, a gym, a game room, and a wine cellar.
Visitors can crash in a two-bedroom guesthouse, which isn’t connected to the main residence. Stress relief is easy, thanks to the in-home spa.
Set on over 2 acres, the verdant outdoor space boasts terraces overlooking the water, pathways, sundecks, and water features throughout the serene sanctuary. There’s also a perfect pool for indulging in the life aquatic.
In addition, the grounds include an eight-car garage. Smart lighting, audio, security, and media systems complete the offering.
