La Gorce Island Home Sales Setting Miami Beach Records
La Gorce Island is getting tremendous attention as of late. Aside from its incredible celebrity appeal and premium status at the top of the market, La Gorce Island is setting records. 34 La Gorce Circle recently sold for $14 million, which set a record for Miami Beach homes of $611 per square foot for the land and $2,889 per square foot for the home. This home sale broke the previous record of 2550 Bay Avenue (on the Sunset Islands) of $529 per square foot for the land and $2,230 per square foot for the home. 34 La Gorce Circle is comprised of a six-bedroom, six-bathroom house that for all intents and purposes is considered a teardown – it’s 75 year old structure. This highly desirable waterfront lot allows for spectacular views of Biscayne Bay, sitting on 22,000+ square feet of land.
At the top of the Miami Beach luxury home market, La Gorce Island competes with communities such as Star Island and Fisher Island for supreme bragging rights and prestige. Star Island real estate offers a proximity to South Beach that can’t be matched, and Fisher Island has incredibly strict access of boat only on and off of the island. However, La Grorce Island has plenty going for it to compete as the best Miami Beach luxury home community.
La Gorce Island Homes
Set amidst tropical surroundings, the selection of available La Gorce Island homes offers something for everyone. You can also choose from the interior homes on the island, if you are looking for value, or go big and acquire a mansion estate that is fit for royalty. Either way, you’ll have a home in a highly exclusive community that still has an outstanding and convenient location on Miami Beach. Straddling the waters between Biscayne Bay and the Miami shoreline, La Gorce Island is close to the mainland and yet far enough for privacy. This heavily guarded and secure island getaway leaves no stone unturned in ensuring you are comfortable and safe once you decide to plant roots here.
Star Studded Neighborhood
Once you start living on La Gorce Island, rubbing shoulders with some of the top celebrities in America will become second nature to you. Lil Wayne bought a house here in 2013, and Billy Joel too has had his yacht moored on this private island in the past. Who can forget Hollywood star Matt Damon’s sprawling med revival villa that he reportedly listed for $20 million? It is the fusion of Zen and the party-life that brings celebrities to this little island paradise. La Gorce offers you enough privacy so that you can rest back and watch the sun go down, and it also gives you the freedom to zip across the bay to meet your other friends who live on the water.
Extravagant and Stylish Mansions
La Gorce Island boasts of single family homes that are opulent, yet highly functional. There are eight properties up for sale on La Gorce Island, but each of these properties is as different from the other as chalk from cheese. On one hand there is the option of building a customized house in Sheffield Lane, and on the other hand there are waterfront properties on 10,000+ square feet lots that provide sweeping views of the bay, and enough dockage to moor your favorite vessel.
La Gorce Country Club
And who can forget the close proximity to the ultra-prestigious La Gorce Country Club? It’s the home to some of the best golf in South Florida. My friends that are really into golf swear that it is simply amazing overall. La Gorce Country Club offers something for the entire family — competitive golf for the avid golfer with a single digit handicap; a Pool Café complex for relaxation and recreation for families with children; a state-of-the-art Fitness Center, sauna and steam room for healthy living and pampering; a year-round calendar of activities and social events for every occasion; private rooms for social or business functions; and a banquet room for all those memorable occasions.
All in all, there is lots to love about La Gorce Island!
