Miami’s new gorgeous property selling for $65 million is located in the heart of Coconut Grove, aka “the original Miami.” Known as La Brisa, the historical mansion is the most expensive residence currently for sale in Miami-Dade County.
The 6.9-acre waterfront property features 13,800-square-foot residence and two-bedroom guest house. La Brisa offers 9 bedrooms, 8 full baths, three partial baths, and 16,500 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space. This amazing property offers views of Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, over 3,000 square feet of outdoor living space, a pool, a spa, and a private port that can accommodate a 70-foot yacht and offers direct ocean access.
The nine-bedroom residence sits upon an ancient coral reef approximately 23 feet above sea level. There are also the four-car garage, Key West-style quest cottage, the pool and sunken fire pit surrounded by an expensive patio made from coral stone.
La Brisa boasts a very colorful history. The land was first deeded in 1886 to Kirk Munroe, a famous author of children’s novels and book about Florida, and his wife Mary Barr Munroe. In 1920 they sold the land to John B. Semple, a Pittsburgh lawyer. Later the property was purchased by Henry Field, a grand-nephew of the founder of the Marshall Field’s department store chain.
