Remember Miami Vice? If you do, you’ll see what I see — that this sleek, masterful modern mansion would make a prime location for a reboot. If you don’t know Miami Vice, shame on you. Stream it, laugh at the ’80s clothes, and ogle the architecture. If you’re looking for a house that’s cooler than the one used for the 2006 movie, this is it.
I tore myself away from the computer and went to see this masterful modern last week. I’d heard the phrases, “You have to see it to appreciate it,” and “Photos don’t do it justice,” from too many people. I was in a “show me” sort of mood when I drove into the cul-de-sac at twilight. The first of many plusses is that there are only 11 houses on this street. Another huge plus is this is not just one house. It’s two. Yep. Two.
Indeed, photos don’t do the house justice. Some homes must be experienced. When I walked in, prepared to be judgmental, Compass listing agents Breah Brown and Piper Young helped me pick my jaw up off the floor and kindly guided me to the bar for a restorative cocktail. The word stunning is overused, so let’s go for glamorous, dramatic, impressive, and brilliant.
