We hear a lot about old Hollywood glamour, but this is old Miami’s glamour. When Miami Beach was first being developed in the mid 1920s and the causeway islands were being created, the rich and famous were building their winter mansions around the edge of Biscayne Bay with a view of the then meager skyline of Miami in the distance and the sunset across the water.  

Grounds and gardens were on large lots and the architecture was Spanish with open covered terraces with columns and archways and tall palms leaning toward the direction of the prevailing breeze like the Mitzner designed homes in Palm Beach.

Once owned by Jennifer Lopez, at first sight of this waterfront mansion, it shouts, Old Florida – when the living was laid back and easy.  It’s majestic and Spanish, with large grounds, pool and spa overlooking the bay, koi pond, gardens and above all, the tall swaying palms that emphasise the tropical paradise feeling.
