Moving In: Miami Beach House
I sort of have an obsession when it comes to water front properties. Maybe it's the fact that I've been a swimmer my whole life. There's just something super relaxing about waking up in the morning to see the water out your window. This gated water front home is an absolute beauty. Located in Miami, the home boasts over 5000 square feet of living space conveniently located to shopping, as well as the beach and restaurants. Could you ask for anything better? (ABOVE) The home is nestled behind a wall of hedges and a gate. I love the larger stone driveway. The home has a Mediterranean flair and has its own unique character.
(1) From the front lawn the house doesn't look quite as large as it is. The blue shutters add a bit of a kick. The architecture of the home is very California to say the least. I usually like having the garage in the rear of the house, however, I don't mind its place here.
(2) The back of the home features a fantastic shaded back deck. The perfect place to entertain guests or just take a nap away from the hot Florida sun. I like how the table blends into its souroundings.
(3) The pool is right off the back porch. Take a nap and then dive in. The proximity of the pool to the house gives the home a bit more shade, perfect for those hot days.
(4) The back of the home has a wonderful deck and 2nd floor terrace. From the terrace you have an unobstructed view of the water. What I like about the back of the home is the simplicity of the architecture. The back looks designed, but without trying too hard.
(5) I love the landscape design of the backyard, however, I just wish the property were bigger. Then again, a larger property would come with a heftier price tag. I like how the palm trees flank the entrance to the boat deck.
(6) How great is this dock? You can't park an enormous yacht here, but an average size water vehicle will do. I could get use to living here! What do you think of the home? Would you move in?

Wow, wow, WOW! This house is fantastic! It reminds me of the beachside properties I saw on my trip to Australia. One of the houses was for rent for the summer and was fully furnished (rather tastefully, I might add). I was so tempted to just shove all my belongings in a storage facility and just turn up at the door with a suitcase. This house makes me want to do the same!
