Balmy Mediterranean with a Unicorn Horn Asks $22.5M

New, 8 comments


Built on Miami Beach's Hibiscus Island, an exclusive neighborhood in an already exclusive resort city, this Mediterranean-style complex was designed and built by developer John Turchin, whose area of expertise when it comes to residential homes might best be described as luxe squared. The 13,000-square-foot, five-bedroom home is almost a village all its own, with a main house, guest house, boat house, and cabana that all surround two broad tiered pools shaded by a small bunch of palm trees and the property's most notable feature, a large maypole-like spire that extends from the roof with large swatches of white fabric stretched outward from the tip. The interior is beachy and fine—almost shelter mag-worthy at its best, a little Mediterranean-by-numbers at its worst—with plenty of open-air living spaces connected by covered loggias. Built in 2003 and last sold in May of 2008 for $10.6M, the place is now asking a whopping $22.5M. Check it out below:
