A relaxing courtyard pool and outdoor hangout flanked by two structures that allow you to switch between complete privacy and seamless connectivity with the outdoors – is a perfect example of a modern home crafted to meet the specific needs of its residents.
The ocean is literally a stone’s throw away from this ravishing terrace even as the living area below also features a more modest balcony with equally impressive views. The open plan living area with a kitchen and dining space promises the very best in terms of luxury as the homeowners invested $6 million recently to give the interior a world-class upgrade.
Designed by Kobi Karp the abode would fit into the image of an ‘ideal dream home’ of almost anyone as its majestic interior leads towards a magical backyard that embraces the charm of life next to the ocean in a truly spectacular fashion. Add to this the presence of gently swaying palm trees and tropical greenery and you have a resort-style escape that leaves everyone mesmerized!
The first floor of the existing house holds two bedrooms and a bathroom while the distinct timber box sitting atop the new extension contains the master suite. Uncomplicated in its approach and cheerful this smart residence feels like a bridge between two contrasting eras.
Combining a hint of traditional charm with modern aesthetics a series of single-pitch roofs in alternating direction ensure that each room of the house receives ample natural light while being protected from the harsh summer heat.
In fact the street façade only gives you a slight glimpse of the actual interior with two pod-like structures popping out of the otherwise green scenery. Then there is the smart waterproof rubber membrane that wraps itself around the exterior of the home to make sure that the moisture does not seep through from the green roof into the living area.
We often talk about dream homes that rev up the luxury and style quotient to transport you into a completely different world. While many of these gorgeous residences accomplish this to a certain extent few come close to the sheer opulence and majesty of the in Miami.
