A distinctive turreted mansion in Miami, seemingly transported from the picturesque English countryside, is now available on the market for $15.995 million.
This asking price has the potential to set a new benchmark in the upscale Ponce Davis neighborhood, where this remarkable property is situated. The listing, handled by Dennis Carvajal and Michael Martinez of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, was unveiled last week.
This almost 10,000-square-foot renovated residence truly stands out within the neighborhood. “The exteriors are entirely cloaked in ivy,” Carvajal enthusiastically noted.
Indeed, the turreted mansion isn’t merely adorned with ivy on a few walls; ivy seems to adorn every conceivable surface, as showcased in the listing photos. The palm-lined driveway and lush lawns contribute to a lush, almost Oz-like greenery.
Inside, the interiors exude a bright, clean aesthetic with high ceilings and walls of windows. The foyer, boasting a two-story window and a cozy piano nook, “sets the tone for the home,” according to Martinez, who shared insights about this six-bedroom, nine-bathroom residence.
“It’s been meticulously designed with the latest upgrades, featuring smart home technology, a media room, a comfortable study, an elegant sit-in bar, and a backyard that rivals a boutique resort,” Martinez elaborated.
The living area features an imposing wall of built-ins, currently displaying an impressive vase collection, as depicted in the listing photos. Vibrant blue doors and striking red accent walls provide a captivating contrast to the white walls. The residence also includes a vibrant blue office space with a fireplace and a chef’s kitchen.
Outside, the covered terrace is likewise adorned with ivy, offering picturesque views of the pool and spa. Additionally, there is a summer kitchen and dining area, as well as an open-air poolside lounge.
Property records from PropertyShark indicate that the property was acquired by Jose and Heide Dans, Miami-based marketing executives and philanthropists, in 2008 for $4.8 million. Although they have not immediately responded to requests for comments, Martinez mentioned that they have relocated to a nearby residence.
