James Curnin launches his third Miami Beach single-family home development on Sunset Island II. Dubbed the Limestone Estate after its stone exterior, the mansion is designed by Miami-based architect Max Strang. Eloy Carmenate & Mick Duchon of Douglas Elliman will be listing the property for $27 million.
Located at 1757 W 27th St, the Limestone Estate features Shellstone & European Oak flooring, 8′ frameless doors, Boffi kitchen & bathroom vanities, and Wolf & Subzero appliances. The elegant and beautiful details along with the amazing outdoor living make the estate the perfect home. Floor-to-ceiling glass doors open to a full summer kitchen, 20×44 pool, and 100′ of water frontage. The property also boasts the “wellness center” which features an infrared sauna with big sliding doors that look out onto the bay.
James Curnin the great-grandson of the renowned developer, Jack Parker, has had extensive experience in real estate from the age of 14. Starting in 1999, James was quickly integrated into working summers for the Jack Parker Corporation before transitioning into a full-time role. Focusing on the NYC Tri-State region, James contributed to the Parker Meridian Hotels, Parker Towers, and Parker Plaza. After graduating from the University of Miami in 2008, he spent the next five years working closely on various assets and acquisitions, lending him firsthand experience in diverse positions. Most notable is his on-site leasing work of Truffles, a 291-unit rental building, and oversight of the remainder of the JPC NYC portfolio, before leaving the company in 2013 to set up his own development firm.
James pursued ground-up, single-family home development opportunities in West Hollywood and famed Bel Air, where he hired and worked closely with architects Philip Vertoch and Paul McClean on three residential developments comprised of over 60,000 square feet and $55 million in closed transactions. By 2017, having sold all three homes, James set sight on Miami Beach where he established Clara Homes. Just last week, James sold his first Miami Beach residential development on Allison Island to Linda Lampert, widow of real estate executive, Ben V. Lampert for $13 million.
