Presenting 5835 North Bay Road
Incredible Miami Modern home by renowned Art-Deco architect Russell Pancoast

There’s a style that practically defines Miami Modern: clean minimalism infused with warmth, glamour, and fun. An emphasis on outdoor living and room for entertaining. A focus that values both privacy and community, family and friends. You’ll find all of these in this exceptional example of MiMo architecture, a chic and stylish Miami manse with guest house/cabana and pool located just a short walk from the beach and from spectacular La Gorce Country Club.

Miami’s Most Extraordinary Setting
Located alongside Miami’s most iconic landmarks along Billionaire’s Row, this home gives convenient access to all of the best shopping, dining, and entertainment Miami has to offer. That’s why celebrities like Matt Damon, Dwayne Wade, Shakira, Ricky Martin, and Jennifer Lopez make their homes on North Bay.

You’ll love the mix of proximity and privacy, where you can reach the best of Miami in just minutes, then return to this quiet neighborhood setting. With great schools like North Bay Elementary, world-class medical care at Mt. Sinai hospital, and La Gorce’s incredible country club lifestyle, this neighborhood offers everything you could want or need right at your doorstep.

Live Your Dream Miami Lifestyle
Beyond the perfect location, of course, there is the property itself -- and this one’s a Wow. The four bedroom, four bath main house, designed by renowned Art-Deco architect Russell Pancoast in 1936, is an important example of the early Miami Modern style he defined.

Pancoast was a celebrated architect who designed many of Miami’s most iconic homes, and buildings like the Surf Club, the Church by the Sea, and the Miami Beach Auditorium. Lovingly and thoughtfully renovated, you’ll enjoy the best of classic design and contemporary convenience, with all of the modern finishes you expect in a luxury home.

An electric gate, covered two-car carport, and a driveway on either side lead to flawless landscaping and a sexy contemporary facade. Walk into a wide-open interior space with exceptional design details and new upgraded finishes throughout. This is no chilly steel and glass version of contemporary -- warm woods, stone, and natural light create a relaxing, resort-style vibe you’ll love coming home to.

The light-filled kitchen is a dream, whether your focus is on design or utility. A true chef’s kitchen, you’ll be dazzled by the Wolf gas appliances and the thoughtful design of each element, from cabinetry to appliances. The beauty of Calcutta Gold marble and warm wood cabinets make this the true heart of this stylish home, with views of the incredible pool area enhancing the beauty of the space, which opens onto both living and dining spaces.

Every element of the home -- from staircases to doorways, from light fixtures to spacious walk-in closets -- has been thoughtfully and artfully designed to support the home’s minimalist aesthetic while creating visual and design interest. Gorgeous fixtures and finishes and the use of natural materials infuse every room with textures that add warmth and sophistication.

Outdoor Living Perfection
Beyond the home’s impact windows and doors, you’ll find a backyard setting that is what dreams are made of. Surrounded by gorgeous palms and mature shrubbery for privacy, the pool and sundeck offer an idyllic setting for fun and relaxation. A variety of spaces, from covered terraces to an outdoor dining area, offer multiple outdoor living options.

When guests arrive, you (and they) will love the space and convenience of the one bedroom, one bath guest house/cabana. This fun and functional space offers the contemporary design and comfort found in the main house to make your guests feel right at home. The Murphy bed allows you to adapt the space for a variety of possible uses, whether you’re looking for an office, guest house, or cabana.

No detail has been left unconsidered, and the home is completely turnkey. Nancy Batchelor, Senior Vice President of EWM International, is representing this historically and architecturally significant and beautifully designed home. EWM International has been named Dade County’s number one brokerage year after year -- find out why when you work with Nancy and her team. This is your opportunity to purchase one of Miami’s most prestigious addresses. Contact Nancy Batchelor for additional information and details, or to arrange a private showing of this spectacular space.


Presenting 590 NE 59th Street

Spectacular contemporary style with the grandeur of historic Morningside

Nestled on Miami’s Upper East Side, the gated enclave of Morningside offers an array of architectural styles that practically define the Miami aesthetic. Among these, this one of a kind Bermudan/Cape Dutch residence at 590 NE 59th Street was created in 2016. Situated on a sprawling 8,439 sq. ft. corner lot, the home offers an extraordinary blend of past and present, historic and contemporary, high style and modern convenience.

Desirable Morningside Neighborhood
Morningside was designated Miami’s first historic district in 1984. The guard-gated community is considered one of Miami’s best planned communities and features distinctive wide, tree-lined boulevards. Homes here are an artfully eclectic mix of Mediterranean Revival, Art Deco, and Mission styles. It features homes by some of the great names in Miami architecture: Kiehnel and Elliott, Marion Manley, Gene Baylis, and others.

Morningside offers great schools like Cushman -- which recently expanded into high school enrollment -- and Miami Country Day; it is a five minute drive from the future site of Avenues: The World School, opening in 2021 on the site of the former Archbishop Curley-Notre Dame High School.

There’s close access to the Design District and the beach. Morningside Park is a much-loved green space, with eight newly built tennis courts, a boat ramp, and a playground, all in a lush tropical setting.

Among these, this new home’s front facade blends right in, with charming architectural details and mature landscaping that blends with the neighborhood’s historic character. But once you step inside, you’ll find sophisticated contemporary style throughout its 4,664 sq. ft.

Contemporary Style Without the Chill
Think of contemporary as cold and severe? Not here. The house’s many windows let the light stream in, illuminating the wooden floors and tongue & groove vaulted ceilings with exposed beams. The use of texture, industrial finishes, and pattern throughout add interest and warmth to the space. The design nods to the historic neighborhood in which it is situated through retro details like a claw foot tub in the owner’s suite or stylized arched interior doorways and transom-style windows.

The open floor plan makes this four bedroom, three and a half bath home ideal for entertaining. The custom chef’s kitchen with gas appliances and extraordinary twelve foot marble island is a true delight with beautiful built-in shelving, extensive storage, and professional fixtures and finishes. Bedrooms maintain the minimalist aesthetic with the help of incredible built-ins in the expansive custom walk-in closets. Convenient floorplan features one bedroom on the ground floor for increased privacy and accessibility.

Designed for Outdoor Living
No matter how extraordinary the home, this is Miami where the outdoor spaces are as much a part of the home’s daily life as the interiors. Walk through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors onto the covered patio and out into your incredible back garden. Featuring a beautiful modern pool and spa with sun deck, this will be the setting for family fitness and fun.

Alongside the pool area is a summer kitchen and dining room, with ample space for al fresco brunches and dinner parties. The romantic exterior is enhanced with custom lighting and gas lamps, adding to the ambiance and the home’s Morningside setting.

This home is more than just a pretty face. Beyond its exceptional design features, you’ll find durable impact windows and doors, plus a two car garage with room for an additional two car lift. Enjoy minimal maintenance in a move-in ready, newly constructed home.

Represented by Nancy Batchelor, Senior Vice President of EWM International, this is an extraordinary opportunity to own a home in one of Miami’s most sought-after areas. Contact Nancy Batchelor for more information or to arrange a private showing of this luxe Morningside retreat.
