For Sale: Miami Beach's 'Temple' to Hosting Celebrities
By Laura Vecsey
Why buy a Miami Beach house when you can buy a "Temple?" That's a good question, and all it takes to answer this unique South Beach real estate proposition is $16,925,000. "The Temple House," which sits a 1415 Euclid Ave. Miami Beach, Fla. 33139, is being billed as the "ultimate entertaining property" and a centerpiece of the sizzling South Beach scene. The property features five bedrooms, an awe-inspiring 23-foot vaulted ceilings and a spacious, private rooftop deck complete with an infinity edge pool and waterfalls.
What's not included? Harry Stiles or any of the other dozens of A-list celebrities who have partied at "The Temple House." According to Darren Weiner, listing agent from Miami-area celebrity and luxury real estate firm Antigen Reality, "The Temple House" is the largest house in Miami's South Beach that won the 'Most Spectacular Restoration of a Residential Property' award in 2013, given by the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce.
The Temple House earned its celebrity status as the place where One Direction filmed its music video for 'Best Song Ever." It's also the location where reality TV's "Brady Bunch Gone Wild" family -- the Kardashians --oo shot their 2012 holiday card portrait.
The home is an historic 16,400 square-foot Art Deco icon designed by legendary architect L. Murray Dixon. More than 100 world-famous celebrities have partied in its interior and exterior spaces, including Jennifer Lopez, Jay-Z, Michael Jordan, Ricky Martin, Sean 'Diddy' Combs, U.S. Vice President Al Gore, Kim Kardashian, Magic Johnson, Jamie Foxx, Tony Hawk, Venus Williams, Olivia Newton-John, Nicki Minaj, Enrique and Julio Iglesias, and many more.
In addition, The Temple House has served as the location for 100-plus music videos, movies, television shows, private celebrity events, corporate functions, charity galas, and luxury weddings.
The home, which could be re-imagined in any number of ways, is centrally located in South Beach, just steps from the beach, Ocean Drive, yacht marinas, fine dining, shopping, theaters, nightclubs and the ever-hopping Lincoln Road Mall.
The Miami Beach real estate climate has rocketed up 27.3 percent year-over-year, making it one of the hottest real estate markets in the country following the 2008 economic collapse that flattened home values, especially in Florida.
