A Tropical ‘Indoor-Outdoor Home’ On A Private Island in Miami Beach

It is hard to picture a suitable place for living out the Miami Beach dream than this—a slick, glass-walled modern home, surrounded by palm trees and seemingly floating on water, set on its own private island with 110 feet of waterfront.

Recently built and completed in October 2016, its design, by Choeff Levy Fischman Architecture + Design, is what really sets it apart. Walls completely retract, including at the corners, where there are no supporting columns. The effect, said agent Jeri Jenkins of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, is the ultimate “tropical indoor-outdoor home” where you can enjoy the sunshine even while you are having a bath, or cooking your breakfast.
