A pair of houses could soon make up the most expensive residential real estate deal in Miami history.
The sprawling property on Star Island offers two distinct homes spread across 40,000 square feet. The original, built by Walter DeGarmo in 1924 as the island’s first residence, was bought by DenTek Oral Care founder John Jansheski in 2011 for $10.75 million. In 2014, Jansheski had the house physically relocated 150 feet south to make room for a modern glass mansion designed by South African architectural firm Saota. Combined, the two structures offer 11 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, as well as a massive wraparound pool and a dock with a boat lift.
“It’s so special to be able to experience the vibe of being in a home with so much history and in one of the most architecturally significant modern homes by Saota that really showcases Miami living today, all in one property,” Alyssa Morgan with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, who has the listing, said in a statement.
With just 30 homes, man-made Star Island is one of Miami’s most exclusive neighborhoods, attracting stars like Gloria Estefan, P. Diddy, Rosie O’Donnell, and Shaquille O’Neal. If 27 Star Island closes for the asking price, it will surpass the $75 million hedge-fund billionaire Ken Griffin dropped on a waterfront mansion in December, according to The Wall Street Journal.
$19.5 million Dumbo penthouse poised to be top Brooklyn price tag
More than a thousand miles north, another real estate record nears breaking as a 32-floor penthouse in Brooklyn’s Olympia Dumbo tower has just listed for $19.5 million. The five-bedroom condo offers direct elevator access, glass walls, and a private terrace with 360-degree views of lower Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge, and New York Harbor. It’s one of just 76 units in what will be Dumbo’s tallest building, designed by Hill West Architects with interiors by AD100 design firm Workstead.
