The Skinny: Actually, "lavish" doesn't begin to describe the interiors of this penthouse in tony Miami high-rise the Grovenor House. "Explosively gaudy" might better get at the general vibe of the 30th-floor condo, which recently hit the market with an asking price of $8.9M. The brokerbabble tries hard to divert attention from the look of the place with shameless namedropping (floors by Crema Marfil, bathroom fixtures by Sherle Wagner, lighting by Barovier & Tosso, and son) but the essential gilt-edged, velour-covered facts are not to be denied—this place is bonkers. Custom mosaics on the entryway floors set the pace for the rest of the apartment, which also features French Regency- and Renaissance-influenced ceiling paintings, and tons and tons of molding. The 7,000-square-foot unit has five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms, and does have one huge saving grace: absolutely phenomenal views of Biscayne Bay and the Miami skyline.
