About Indian Creek Miami
Unique country club community with magnificent estates offering supreme exclusivity. Many consider this community to be the top address in all of South Florida. And one could argue that this is rightly so, due to the record-setting prices of homes within the prestigious village. This Indian Creek Miami community is as exclusive as exclusive can be. After all, it is a private island with its own police force, golf course and only one street (Indian Creek Island Road) as the main route on the island. Miami Beach is known for being the playground for the uber-wealthy and powerful. And Indian Creek is the king of the hill when other communities are compared.
The private island is as boutique as it gets with only 35 properties in total and a population of 90 inhabitants. Each and every home in Indian Creek Miami has an incredible, expansive view of the glowing aquamarine waters of Biscayne Bay with lots that average nearly an acre and a half. The 294-acre island was founded in the year 1939 with a number of relatively modest homes. Today it's a virtual who's who of billionaires. The community has made a radical transition from one-time vacation properties to full-on palatial estates lining up one right to the next. The interior of the island is home to its own golf course and country club, which is spectacular. Even more intriguing is the fact that the village has its own ten officer police force to patrol the island 24/7 and accompanying patrol boats for the ultimate in protection from the water. There is no comparison for other high-priced, exclusive islands in South Florida and quite possibly the rest of North America.
It is an extremely tight supply and demand market. Each and every home on the island is spectacular. When a home does make it to the market, there is a strong volume of immediate interest. Any older properties that come to market are purchased as tear downs, and plans have been quickly put into place to build their Indian Creek Miami mansion. A 2012 sale of $47mil within the neighborhood has pressed records forward to new heights. And it isn't just prices that are setting records, the new homes being built are getting records for their size, where 20,000 square foot homes are becoming more and more common within the community.
Indian Creek Miami residents include 4 of the 500 wealthiest Americans including the aggressive and dominant corporate takeover specialist Carl Icahn.

Simply amazing... when you take a moment to think about the level of power and influence residing on the island.
Indian Creek Village homes have generally been rebuilt with more of a modern flair to blend in with the overall theme of the neighborhood, yet there are a mix of architectural styles that give the community some ample mansion diversity.
