My EWM Realtors colleague, Pablo Alfaro, and I just took the exclusive listing of the recently completed, luxurious development, Capri South Beach. Imagine taking in glorious panoramic views of the Miami Skyline and Biscayne Bay, the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean while residing on two waterfront acres just steps away from Lincoln Road. I am describing Capri South Beach, the exclusive condominium comprised of two newly constructed buildings and one historic structure, secluded at the western most point of Miami Beach’s 16th Street on 500′ of water frontage. A true boutique development, the sixty-nine luxurious residences, private marina, fitness and spa facility, 24 hour security and valet make Capri South Beach the most desirable bayfront community on the island.

ANA CAPRI 1470 16 STREET MIAMI BEACH, FL 33139Ana Capri, the southern most building, is the smallest of the three, with only five units each occupying a floor. With stunning views of the Miami Skyline to the west, entry to each unit is via private elevator. Each apartment offers 1,798 SF of living space with 3 bed and 2.5 bath. The upper and lower penthouses closed in February 2009 for $2.379M and $2.362M respectively.[space]

MARINA GRANDE 1445 16 STREET MIAMI BEACH, FL 33139Marina Grande, the largest building, located in the center of the property, houses fifty-eight units, five per floor with the exception of the penthouse and ground floor levels. There are three penthouse units on the top floor, while the street level offers two Bay Lofts. A state-of-the-art gym and spa facility is located in Marina Grande.[space]

MARINA PICCOLA 1491 LINCOLN TERRACE MIAMI BEACH FL 33139Marina Piccola, the historic component of this project, was originally designed by Igor Polivetsky in the first half of the twentieth century. It is the northern most point of Capri South Beach. Three floors make up this six unit building. Also located in this areas of the property is the private marina and bayside pool.


Nestled between Bal Harbour and Miami Beach, Indian Creek Village is a private island comprised of 300 acres, and home to an affluent community with thirty two waterfront estates. Also on the island, is the private and exclusive Indian Creek Country Club, which has one of the oldest and beautifully secluded clubhouses in Florida, built in 1929 by architect Maurice Fatio. Occupying the interior landscape is the Club’s 18-hole world class golf course designed by golf architect, William S. Flynn in 1930. Known for its high security, the community founded the Indian Creek Village Public Safety Initiative in 1994, employing its very own police department which apart from safeguarding the land, provides 24/7 police patrol by boat, maybe the only one of its kind, protecting Indian Creek Island residences from Biscayne Bay.

I just listed 22 Indian Creek Drive for $12.9M. Located on the south side of the island, this property has not been offered for sale since 1972, when it was purchased by Martha and Arthur Appleton for $300k. Mrs. Appleton, Martha O’Driscoll, was a Hollywood starlet in the 1930′s and 1940′s. Appearing in more than thirty seven films, she was one of the first to play Daisy Mae in Li’l Abner. Introduced by Candice Bergen’s parents, Martha left the silver screen and moved to Chicago to become the wife of businessman, inventor and philanthropist, Arthur Appleton. The Appleton’s, like many snowbirds, made South Florida a second home, which was the case with their property at 22 Indian Creek Drive.

Situated on an 80,000 SF lot, this estate sale offers 200 FT of water frontage on Biscayne Bay and the Intracoastal Waterway. The Regency style home is well maintained, with more than 7,500 SF of living space.


Acquire A Slice of Oceanfront

I take great pride in announcing that currently, a small community of twelve oceanfront and oceanside residences are under construction between 77th and 79th Streets in Miami Beach. The ONLY single family residential oceanfront community in Miami Beach! It is also, as its name suggests, the highest point on the island. Beautifully situated overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, there is simply no other place in South Florida that offers as much! With breathtaking views, residences offer four to seven bedrooms and bathrooms and range in size from 4,000SF to 9,500SF.

A team of natives, they have exactly what it takes to create a luxurious product in Miami’s unique tropical environment. Leave it to them to know how best to construct amenities that enhance oceanfront living with Miami’s omnipresent sunlight and the ocean’s easterly breezes. Outdoor spaces feature upstairs verandas overlooking the ocean with sun decks , spacious covered patios, lush landscaping, sparkling fountains and more. The interiors, incorporate elegant appointments such as spiral staircases, fireplaces, three-car garages, wine cellars, gyms and media rooms.

Altos del Mar Sculpture Park

To compliment the spectacular residences, a public park will be created between 76th and 77th Streets on the east side of Collins Avenue. The innovative public space, Altos del Mar Sculpture Park, will occupy three acres of land bordering the oceanfront fusing the natural landscape, pedestrian pathways and 19th, 20th and 21st Century artwork.
