Key Biscayne is an idyllic place to spend time. “We are an island located only 10 minutes from vibrant Miami, surrounded by nature, beautiful beaches, top golf courses and our own Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park,” says Brigitte de Langeron, an agent at Savills associate Fortune International Realty.
Even in this neighbourhood of illustrious Key Biscayne properties, 430 N Mashta Drive stands out as something special. First, there’s the size. Built in 2015 over two waterfront lots, the 5,000 sq ft house has been designed to an exceptional standard and sits in 0.8 acres of grounds. “It’s a real luxury on our island – and not very common – to be able to combine two lots that will give you more land and privacy as well as a great water frontage,” says Brigitte
Then there’s the location. “The residence is located in a secluded street shared with only five other waterfront homes and beautiful landscaping,” explains Brigitte. From its double waterfront setting, the property looks across the brilliant waters of Smugglers Cove. It takes moments to navigate out of this protective inlet into Biscayne Bay and the wider ocean waters beyond. “The best place to go by sea is No Name Harbor to eat fresh fish,” says Brigitte. “There are also great eateries in the Miami River and so many other restaurants that offer dock facilities. And if you’re feeling adventurous, the Bahamas is only 50 miles east of Miami.”
To get a real sense of its one-of-a-kind style, look back towards the house from the water. The double-fronted position allows for an open, spacious frontage, with glass-fronted accommodation rooms, balconies with seating areas, an infinity pool on the water’s edge and a summer kitchen terrace. The orientation is such that the sights and sounds of the ocean and State Park are ever-present.
And that continues inside, most dramatically in the views from the over-sized master suite, which has two custom walk-in closets and master bathroom. Along with a formal dining area, there are three reception areas, six bedrooms, a wine cellar and media room. High-spec technology and elegant finishes, such as marble flooring and wood panelling, create a natural, contemporary aesthetic. “This property was built with the most sophisticated electronic system for security, sound system and blind control,” details Brigitte. “Even the pool offers a wave system, jets and LED lights – it’s definitely one of the nicer pools of Key Biscayne.”
“The property also offers a very unique bonus – it has two docks for large yachts (120ft and 60ft), plus floating docks for jet skis and a new seawall,” says Brigitte.
Although a host of leisure and recreational activities can be enjoyed in the nearby national park and open waters, 430 N Mashta Drive is fully equipped for pretty much every other fitness, relaxation and spiritual need. The connected guesthouse includes a professional-grade fitness centre, tatami area, sauna and steam room.
The sense of calm and privacy is accentuated by the mature trees that surround the gated property. It may only be a few miles across the Rickenbacker Causeway to Downtown Miami, but Key Biscayne feels like a tropical world away. “The beauty of the island is its relaxed feeling and the big sense of community,” says Brigitte. “It offers a real lifestyle.” From its waterfront setting, 430 N Mashta Drive captures the very best of this smart, secluded island.
