555 South Gulfstream Avenue Unit 804


Imagine being in a luxury bay front condo unit looking out at the bay, the marina, nearby islands and ultimately, the setting sun over the gulf. Or being in a fashionable loft in New York's SoHo district, with a distinct European flavor and cutting edge design. Or perhaps, a totally renovated farm house, hidden away near a rural village in France. If you can imagine -- and get excited by -- all of these prospects, this is, without a doubt, the unit for you. My European seller has totally renovated this gorgeous unit, bringing all of these design trends to bear in her own unique vision. How many unit owners have put in a giant internal picture window so that they could relax in their oversized bath tub and look straight out at the bay, the way this owner looked out at the Nile from her suite in a luxury Cairo hotel? I love that you can be in the midst of downtown, steps away from but completely removed from the hustle and bustle of city living. While this is located n the quietest area of Gulfstream, you are where everything is happening, with Main St. to the North and Selby Gardens to the South, facing the Marina, just across the street to the West, and a second entrance on Palm Avenue, making it easier to get to area outdoor cafes and galleries. A one of a kind renovation was done in 2015, but it feels like it was just completed. The owner redid all the plumbing, the electrical, put in a tankless water heater, new flooring, doors, hurricane impact windows, you name it!! Rather than keep writing this, I am going to end with a paragraph written by the owner; "The color scheme was chosen to enhance and absorb the ever changing colors of the bay. Depending upon the time of day, the gray shifts to a lighter or darker tone. I love straight lines, clear forms, simplicity, incongruence and unconventionality". If the foregoing paragraph captures your imagination, stop what you're doing and come see this place. And if it doesn't but you're still intrigued, come by, look at the magnificent bay view from this 8th floor corner, and see for yourself what the owner saw when she created this masterpiece. Maybe, just maybe, you'll see it too!!!
