South Florida has a global reputation for offering some of the finest luxury living imaginable. Tourists and would-be residents come from all over the world in pursuit of this ideal, and certain communities seem to be more sought after than others. The following is a sample of the seven most popular destinations for unmatched luxury living, courtesy of Cubed Miami, a website about Miami real estate and architecture.
Chief among these locations is, unsurprisingly,Fisher Island, one of the most exclusive communities in the world. Located on Biscayne Bay near the Atlantic Ocean, this 216-acre community is so privileged that it is accessible only by a car ferry, helicopter, or private boat. Needless to say, some of the world’s wealthiest and most successful people reside here, which says a lot. Indeed, Fisher Island homes and condos are world-class in construction and design, with beautiful vistas, spacious interiors, exquisite décor, and ample amenities. This self-contained island contains everything from a mini-shopping center to a world-famous spa and clubhouse.
Then there is Indian River Creek, located near Bay Harbor in North Beach, this village of only around 30 is frequently ranked as the top ten wealthiest communities in the entire country. Indeed, Indian Creek Real Estate frequently makes the news for being among the most expensive on the market – just this past August, one of the most opulent residences sold for a record $47 million! Indian Creek is ranked as one of the safest communities in the country, owing to 24/7 police patrols on both land and sea. Indian Creek’s clubhouse is one of the oldest in South Florida, and includes a golf course that is frequently ranked as the finest in the city.
Finally, there is the Continuum South Beach, a two-tower condominium located on the southeastern tip of Miami Beach. Providing a beautiful view of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean, and city, it lies within the prestigious South of Fifth (SoFi) neighborhood, which is world-renowned for hosting a world-class array of entertainment, shopping, and dinning venues. Aside from their luxurious units, residents can enjoy a range of amenities, including about 1,000 feet of sandy white beach, large pool pavilion, expansive free-form lagoon swimming pool, sun-deck with furniture, and 3 har-tru tennis courts, world-class spa, fully-equipped gym, and much more.
