Exquisite Contemporary Home in Coconut Grove
January 03, 2018 - Coconut Grove
An ultramodern home designed to look like a series of floating rectangles is listing in Coconut Grove, Fla., for $22 million.
The home is cantilevered on stilts, allowing for a private outdoor dining area at the base and providing 17 feet of clearance from sea level in the event of a flood, according to the listing agent, Jorge Uribe of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
Designed by architect Kobi Karp, the property has a rooftop terrace with a plunge pool and a large waterfront deck with a 61-foot pool. An elevator goes from the ground floor to the roof.
The 14,020-square-foot home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, a five-car garage, a gym, a boat lift and a media room. A flexible space totaling about 2,000 square feet is used as a creative office.
The property is owned by Dutch film director Will Van Der Vlugt.
He bought the site for $4 million in 2011 and built the home from scratch, public records show. Mr. Van Der Vlugt said he wanted the design of the home to have clean lines and make the most of the views of Coral Gables and Key Biscayne.
