Mariposa...My Latest Florida Keys Sale ... Art in Architecture $2,700,000

What the hell IS Zen??? 
Is it a Place?  Is it a Feeling?
Is it a  ... State of Mind? 
Or, is it a Moment?
A Blissful Moment, when the Ideal meets the Cognitive, when Beauty meets Grace, when the full and complete understanding of what you desire is manifest in your Reality?
Zen, is the driving element of my latest sale... Mariposa.  
As much Art as it is a residence.  The essence of what a Luxury Oceanfront Estate should, and could be.
Over 120 feet of true sandy beach (a Keys rarity) along Grassy Key, basking in the ever-changing hues of the Atlantic.
A coral clad 5000sq + residence, with one primary design goal: Bring the gorgeous vistas of the Outside... In.
A Home that is like wearing white linen.  Beautiful and flowing, unadorned by fancy, but tailored by skill and finesse.
Am I a fan of this Home?? You're Damn right!  
It truly is the most unique and and conceptualized home I have had the Privilege and Honor to sell.
A Home, in a Place that grabs you and gently lulls you the Moment you arrive, into Feeling its intoxicating State of...ZEN. 

The Details:
58418 Overseas Highway, Grassy Key  "Mariposa"
Perched on 120 feet of Ocean, beachfront magnificence, this Gossamer, rises from the sand like a Babylonian tower, clad in an exterior of coral rock, and resting on almost an acre and a half of the best of Grassy Key.

Evoking a super Zen vibe, this home is huge by Keys standards, at over 5100 sq ft of interior living space, and has a multitude of bells and whistles, some of which you can see, and quite a few that you purposely don't.

Each of its 5 bedrooms has its own en suite bathroom. Doors cascade and pocket.  
The Master Bedroom is a study of Light and Sea.
In fact, the whole concept of the Home is to bring the visual of the Ocean, the Water, the Sea, INTO the Home.
This is achieved through a multitude of floor to ceiling windows and industrial French Doors, that offer light, light , and more light.

Floating Staircases, Glass Wine Room, pivoting multi-ton doors, an awesome Summer Kitchen, imported stone, and the infinity pool of infinity pools are just some of the, "Oh yeah, they went there", amenities.

The Architecture, Construction, and Design Elements are so distinctive, that the owner, who is also the mastermind and builder behind this creation,was featured on a nationally televised program highlighting this home.  Yes, it's that cool.

  1. For this money you can honestly buy an awesome condo somewhere around Pompano Beach (like here) and it would be more spacious and better looking than this. Is it because of the location that this one is so overprized?
