MIAMI -- National real estate brokerage firm Douglas Elliman was in Miami this December, as one of the most prominent names in luxury homes showcased some of their most exclusive listings at the 2016 Art Basel festival in Miami Beach
Originally founded in 1970 in Basel, Switzerland, Art Basel is the world's premier art showcase for Modern and Contemporary Art. It is held annually in Basel, Miami Beach, and Hong Kong.
For the fourth consecutive year, Elliman, which has listings in Connecticut and New York, showcased its portfolio of world-class properties for some of the expo's most notable guests. The exhibition included properties from New York, Miami and Los Angeles. Many of the listings are architecturally significant and celebrate the links between art and real estate in today's global world.
Miss the festival, but to enjoy warm weather fun this winter? Douglas Elliman is currently listing several South Florida properties that are as architecturally stunning as they are livable.
6440 N. Bay Road in Miami Beach is a newly constructed Modern home, with sweeping views of the Biscayne Bay. The glass and steel construction creates an openness that allows for seamless indoor and outdoor living in the tropical climate.
Slightly to the north, 170 S. Island offers a classical take on luxury. The 10,000 sq. ft. home's exterior is designed in a Spanish style, while the interior is flawlessly modern. The house features multiple living rooms, a restaurant-quality kitchen, infinity pool and more, all just a short walk to the Atlantic Ocean. On rainy days, homeowners and guests can enjoy the house's private movie theater and extensive artwork collection.
For unabashed lovers of modernity, 212 W Dilido Drive, also in Miami Beach, is architecturally significant and offers seemingly endless amenities. Seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a limestone deck and a panoramic view of downtown Miami are just some of what makes this property unique. Disappearing glass doors and large spaces give the nearly 12,000 sq. ft. house a feeling of verticality and openness.
