Rosa Iverson is selling her dream home in the sky. Located in the Williams Island community of Aventura, Florida and perched on the 24th floor of the Villa Marina building, the glittering contemporary spread is everyone's dream come true.
Iverson’s story is familiar – the successful Wall Street player grows tired of the fierce winters up north and escapes to the white sands of the Sunshine State – but Iverson tells it like a modern fairy tale, and what she’s selling lives up to the hype.
“You know what they say about reality being stranger than fiction?” she asks. "Well, that has been my life in many ways and this beautiful home is a large part of it."
This property is actually two units joined at the hip by sleek slabs of Italian marble and walls covered in soundproof silk, Venetian plaster or onyx. It boasts over 5,000 square feet (including all balconies), offers two master suites, two guest rooms, one of which has been turned into a devine custom dressing room, three distinct living rooms and a showstopper of a kitchen, dripping in Miele, Dacor and Sub Zero.
Iverson has dressed the home to the nines with timeless neutrals – a perfect balance to the natural drama beyond the sweeping expanse of windows and glass balcony doors. Speaking of that…“Aaaaaah, these amazing VIEWS!” she exclaims. She’s standing on one of four enormous balconies, each of which can claim its own stunning vista and where one can hear a pin drop. To the west, sparkling city lights. To the east, Williams Island’s private harbor, and just beyond that, Dumfoundling Bay, beyond that, the pristine Atlantic as far as the eyes can see.
Should one want to descend from this paradise, Williams Island offers world-class service, including 24-hour valet, concierge, bellman, two 5 star restaurants, tennis courts as well as the top fitness facility in a South Florida resort-style, with pool and harbor. The asking price of this glorious property is $3,100,000.
Realtors are encouraged to present screened prospective buyers and will receive 3% of the selling price upon the closing of the transaction.
“The day I sign the contract,” says Iverson with a gentle laugh, “I know my eyes will tear-up." Just be sure to bring some tissues.
