Discover a private oasis with the distinguished ambiance of a Mediterranean hideaway, but within walking distance of legendary South Beach. Orchid House would not be out of character for a Roman emperor, yet upon closer inspection its classical features give way to sophisticated modern amenities. This completely unique five-bedroom home was built in 1931 by Wallace Tutt, who set the tone for todays Miami aesthetic.
Inner courtyards, walls and hedges keep the sights and sounds of South Beach at bay, while swaying palm trees and tropical flowers add to the villas natural splendor. Tuscan columns support archways leading you into the tranquil pool courtyard. An adjacent terrace catches the sun and makes the perfect setting for al fresco feasts. Savor fresh seafood, grilled to perfection on your gas barbecue.
Discover an interior defined by timeless elegance. Rich wood floors, a magnificent spiral staircase and off-white dcor give Orchid House a warm and inviting feel. Light and fresh sea air pour in through tall French doors and windows. Spend countless hours experimenting in the gourmet kitchen, where luxurious marble surfaces and high-end appliances make cooking a pleasure. Challenge guests to a game on the pool table, or settle into the screening room for a movie on the projection screen.
Each of the five beautifully-appointed bedrooms opens out onto a balcony and contains its own premium en-suite. The exquisite Master suite features a King size bed with an ornately carved frame, lovely regency rug and charming French doors. Its club-inspired en-suite holds both a spa tub and separate shower. There is one other King suite, while the remaining bedrooms boast ultra-cozy Queen beds.
Once you exit the property, the familiar sights of South Beach quickly appear. Youre within walking distance of Ocean Drive, with its pastel Art Deco buildings, plus the boutiques and restaurants of Collins Avenue and Lincoln Road. Its a 7 mile drive up Miami Beach to the chic world of Bal Harbor Shops. Head 12 miles south to experience the verdant parks, challenging golf courses and bustling marinas on Key Biscayne.
