The $50 million tropical contemporary retreat Casa Bahia in Coconut Grove, the oldest continuously inhabited neighborhood of Miami, is the second priciest home for sale in Miami-Dade County. This custom three-story waterfront home boats 518 linear ft of waterfront on Biscayne Bay and sits on a 41,125 sq ft.
Designed by film director, screenwriter and producer Alejandro Landes, Casa Bahia is a 20,000-square-foot mansion at 3085 Munroe Drive. The three-story, waterfront dream home was completed in December and features interiors by his mother Catalina Echavarría, designs by Zyscovich Architects and Jerry Gavcovich, landscaping by Raymond Jungles and custom lighting.
Designed as a tribute to nature, Casa Bahia is built of natural materials, natural woods and exposed concrete and seamlessly blends the indoors and outdoors through gigantic glass windows, concrete and teak exteriors, and floating balconies and staircases. The seven-bedroom estate boasts four kitchens, a 73-foot heated infinity-edge pool, steam room, home theater, wine room, eight-car gallery, and protected dock. Alejandro Landes has also includes a guest house, a private loft, both fitted with smart home technology, a 700-bottle custom wine cellar and an elevator for up to 12 people in the mansion.
Casa Bahia is the only Miami residential project to have won an Architizer Popular Choice A+ Award in the Architecture + Water category this year.
