Miami, FL (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
On an island of superlatives this penthouse stands out. ONE Sotheby’s International Realty announced today that it recently represented the seller in the sale of one of Fisher Island’s largest penthouses, totaling 7,924 square feet, for $9.85 million. The transaction is the highest recorded sale of Fisher Island real estate on the exclusive, private island since 2009, which was $13.5 million.
The exquisite bay view penthouse, located at 5171 Fisher Island Drive, stands on the top floor of Fisher Island’s second newest building, constructed in 2005, and features six bedrooms, six full and one half bathrooms, and 24-foot ceilings, the highest of any unit on the island. Its penthouse status grants its residents exclusive access to the unit through two private elevators, which boasts a large dome kitchen with a cooking island and three fireplaces. Other amenities include smart home technology systems, a Creston system for audio, video and security cameras, two golf carts and the largest storage unit in the building.
ONE Sotheby’s International Realty associate Sandra Fiorenza represented the seller in the transaction. A Fisher Island resident since 1997, Fiorenza specializes in ultra-luxury waterfront properties on Fisher Island and the surrounding islands, including Star, Palm and Sunset Islands, as well as Gables Estates and Cocoplum.
