Get ready to hear–and see–more about 9530 West Broadview Drive. Quite a bit more. The majestic two-story, six-bedroom, nine-bathroom Tropical Modern residence that now graces this address is about to make some serious waves all across South Florida…and beyond.
The latest in a string of sparkling seaside jewels designed by award-winning, highly-commissioned architecture firm Choeff Levy Fischman Architecture + Design, the deeply luxurious and utterly unique home unfolds over nearly 12,000 square feet along the waterfront and wide bay of Miami’s exclusive enclave known as Bay Harbor Islands.
Choeff Levy Fischman took nearly two years to create and perfect this Tropical Modern masterpiece, which seamlessly blends whimsical Mid-Century Modern motifs and sophisticated Miami Beach style—both inside the 8,548-square-foot home and throughout its expansive grounds. Floor-to-ceiling, full-impact glass walls and 10-foot frameless and hingeless wood doors intermingle with tropical elements such as a water feature that flows from the entrance of the home to the interiors, natural herringbone wood and marble-porcelain flooring, “floating” walls that incorporate black aluminum and exotic finishes.
“The centerpiece of this home is this magnificent view, with its wide gallery entrance into this grand residence,” said Ralph Choeff, principal, Choeff Levy Fischman. “It’s perfectly situated in the heart of this wonderful waterfront community of Bay Harbor Islands. This was truly a labor of love for our entire firm—and we know it will soon captivate many, many others.”
Equal parts architect’s vision and entertainer’s dream, the home was developed by Miami-based luxury home developer Gamma Construction and boasts immaculate interior design by Caterina Badiello of South Florida luxury design studio CBDesign. Each of the six bedrooms includes fully equipped walk-in closets and a wealth of fine features and touches that inspire and inform the home.
Interior amenities and luxuries include an ocean-view premier bedroom with dual closets and bathrooms, each with stand-alone bathtubs and water views, an adjoining “pajama room”, two family rooms, gym, office, a second-floor breakfast pantry, a 192-bottle wine room, two chef-ready kitchens with Sub-Zero and Wolf gas and electric appliances, two laundry rooms, and an elevator and floating wood-glass staircase.
Cutting-edge home automation features like motorized shades and curtains, all-around audio by Sonos, security alarm and CCTV systems, and Lutron lighting ensure that life here is every bit as safe and hassle-free as it is relaxing and luxurious.
Outside the estate, magnificent vistas of Biscayne Bay, Indian Creek Lake, and Indian Creek Country Club can be enjoyed from the lush tropical grounds, which boast 80 feet of waterfront—or while relaxing in the fully heated infinity-edge pool and spa. There’s even an outdoor dining area and summer kitchen, along with a private, 500-square-foot boat dock that accentuates and amplifies the prime waterfront locale. A direct, bridge-free route to the water ensures full open-ocean access in mere minutes. There’s also a spacious and secure two-car garage for land-bound vehicles of all kinds.
Designed with the demanding elements and microclimates of South Florida front-and-center, the all-concreate structure boasts a main-slab, finished floor 10 feet above sea level. The elevated 4-plus-foot sea wall and lot are also enveloped by five-foot structural retention walls.
