The two-story residence at 182 Bal Bay Drive includes eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and more than 12,800 square feet of living space, according to listing agent Jill Hertzberg of The Jills Zeder Group.

Hertzberg told CNBC that there are several reasons the property should fetch the highest price in the area. “The main reason is location, location, location.”

The property was built on the northern tip of Miami Beach in a residential complex between the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. The exclusive neighborhood includes its own police force and a marina.

With the asking price of Villa Magnolia, the price per square foot is north of $ 2,900. For comparison, in the fourth quarter of 2020, the average single-family home in the Miami Beach-Barrier Island area sold for about $ 3.79 million, with the average price per square foot being $ 1,047, according to luxury real estate data from the Elliman Report. This puts Villa Magnolia at the top of the market with a price per square foot that is 277% above average.

Hertzberg described the Villa Magnolia as “a modern house in the neoclassical style”. It features classic elements such as columns, coffered ceilings and handcrafted stone.

Villa Magnolia’s water front extends over 221 feet.

According to Hertzberg, one of the house’s biggest selling points is the 221-foot-long waterfront in the backyard.

You will also find a single-story waterfall there. At the push of a button, water flows from an infinity pool on a terrace on the second floor into the main pool overlooking Miami’s Biscayne Bay.

The boardwalk includes 100 feet of piers clad in white stone.

Inside, the house is just as impressive. Here’s a look:

The house is being sold fully furnished and much of its furniture has been designed by Fendi. The Italian dining table shown here offers space for 16 people.

At the head of the table hangs a picture of Marilyn Monroe, which can be set in motion by remote control to reveal a flat-screen TV.

And while Villa Magnolia is the most expensive villa for sale in Bal Harbor, it’s not the most expensive property for sale in the village.

“A 1.8 acre waterfront property at 200 Bal Bay Drive was recently listed for $ 65 million,” said Hertzberg.

The $ 65 million lot at 200 Bal Bay Drive does not include a home.

In comparison, the Villa Magnolia has more square meters, a larger plot of land, the double water front and is offered turnkey with all designer furniture, Herzberg said.

Although Covid-19 prevented in-person screenings of Villa Magnolia for about a month, demand has increased dramatically due to the pandemic, leading to a record year, Hertzberg said.

“In 2020 our team, The Jills Cedar Group, had sales of over $ 1 billion,” she said.
