Miami Beach Condo: Island Living for $1 Million

It was once said that "no man is an island" but living in this Miami Beach condo can certainly make any occupant feel that way. That's because it's located in Aqua on Allison Island, an 8.5 acre island that's a unique living concept going against the grain of what the beach is known for. There's no Art Deco look here, it's modernist architecture with a little splash of deco color and a mix of urbanism thrown in. Designed by a team hand-picked by Dacra Development which is owned by Craig Robins who is responsible for much of the Miami's Design District resurgence, the intent was to create a self-contained island that emulates the "innovative ideas of the urbanist design movement," as described on their web site.

The 4-bed, 4.5 bath, 2,752 square foot unit available for $1 million dollar is in one of three mid-rise condos that make up this unique community, which also features island homes. Located at 6103 Aqua Avenue, the corner unit located in the Spear building, has a modernist interior to match the exterior. Price-wise the unit, at $363 per square foot, is at the higher end of other units available in the same building but also features an additional room. The place is also in move-in condition, updated throughout and a dream for anyone seeking the sleek, modern look and incredible views.
With its white on white interior, the unit for sale features large white porcelain tiles throughout and a kitchen boasting lacquered white cabinets with pure white marble counters. The kitchen opens up to the living area where wrap-around floor-to-ceiling windows provide a breathtaking view of Indian Creek. It's easy to stock a full wardrobe, accessories, shoes, etc... for the ladies with customized closets, two of the walk-ins (his and hers) are located in the master suite, as are an oversized bath with shower and jacuzzi. It's a great place for boaters too, with plenty of dockage available.

Hailed as a place created by a group of visionary architects, artists, designers and developers, the surrounding amenities at Aqua resonate the new urbanism philosophy. They include a Children's Learning Center, the Aqua Club and Spa with a full-service spa and fitness center and outdoor patio for relaxing after a workout, a neighborhood swimming pool and mango grove. There's also artwork by Richard Tuttle incorporated into the building's tilework, another surprising splash of color. Overall, it's the antithesis of the hustle and bustle of South Beach, yet for those who would like to partake in the area's nightlife and dining, it's very close by.
