A stunning tropical contemporary named Casa Bahia in Coconut Grove just listed for $50 million in Coconut Grove, becoming the second priciest home for sale in Miami-Dade County, behind the $55-million Faena House penthouse.
Designed by filmmaker and first-time designer Alejandro Landes in collaboration with Zyscovich Architects and Shorecrest Construction, the 20,000-square-foot mansion is a work of art, with sleek finishes, an exposed exoskeleton wrapped in teak, glass and white stucco.
Other highlights include floor-to-ceiling glass windows throughout, a rooftop deck, “floating” balconies and staircases, in addition to cantilevered sinks, a 73-foot heated infinity-edge pool, steam room, home theater, wine room, eight-car gallery, and protected dock.
The home won the Architizer Popular Choice A+ Award in the Architecture + Water category.
Listed with Pablo Alfaro of Douglas Elliman, the seven-bedroom estate boasts FOUR kitchens and lives on an acre, with interiors designed by Landes’ mother, Catalina Echavarria of CEU Studio, who also owns the home, per the Wall Street Journal.
