This Coral Gables Mansion Comes with 121 Feet Worth of Water Views

Set in Coral Gables’ most exclusive gated community, the home is a private 1-acre oasis with each of its 6 bedrooms opening up to stunning water views (and the Miami skyline in the backdrop)

There are those million dollar-views that open up to stunning cityscapes, iconic buildings or great skyline views.

And then there are those that open to nature’s most wonderful gifts. And while I may be a fan of secluded cabins opening to a calm lake, I have to give it up to this Coral Cables mansion that brings water into nearly all of its rooms.

The 20 Tahiti Beach Island home was recently listed for $18.7 million, with The Carroll Group holding the listing.

Tahiti Beach – Taking ‘exclusive’ up a notch

Tahiti Beach is not your typical South Florida neighborhood. I’d be more accurately described as a private island within a quite prestigious community known as Cocoplum, set within the limits of the historic city of Coral Gables.

It’s seen as a gated community within a gated community, offering only 25 luxury homes along the sparkling blue waters of Biscayne Bay.

Given how private the homes are, it’s no wonder so many ultra-high-net-worth individuals have called Tahiti Beach home.

Athletes like ex-NFL player Jonathan Vilma — who just sold his home down at 17 Tahiti Beach for $14.4M at the beginning of this year — or Ray Allen, who bought a home here after renting a neighboring one, as well as celebrities like Cher were all residents of the area.

Tahiti Beach is also home to one of the most expensive homes in Miami, with neighboring 4 Tahiti Beach Rd being listed for a whopping $45 million.
