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.
