Feast your eyes on this lush, tropical home located in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood. If it looks familiar, it’s because it was featured as the drug lord lair in the 2006 Miami Vice adaptation. It has also been the setting of a number of TV shows, commercials, and photo shoots. This home is so “Miami” in many ways. Its design centers around outdoor living; very appropriate for Miami’s year-round warm climate. Plenty of thought was placed on the landscape surrounding the architecture to make it very cohesive. Let’s take a look at what makes this space such a gem.

Wide overhangs on the 2nd floor provide an ideal spot to relax while catching the breeze and a beautiful view of the dense tropical garden below.
Coquina stone, which is naturally abundant in the Carribean and South Florida, is used in many details throughout the home such as on the fireplace and pool.
A calm neutral color palette for the interior and a narrow footprint allow the inhabitants to recognize the natural view beyond as a major focal point.
