An Oceanfront Penthouse: The Most Prestigious of All Properties

If you’re looking for a trophy property, there’s really nothing that outdoes luxury penthouses. An oceanfront penthouse is the most desirable of these, of course, owing to the views and the expansive horizons you’ll be able to take in from your windows. For the ultimate in luxury living, a Miami Beach penthouse is often times the first choice for the most affluent of individuals.

Why a Miami Beach or Sunny Isles Penthouse?

If you’re in a penthouse in New York, you get a lot of beautiful city skyline. If you’re in a smaller city, you may get a bit of skyline and some natural scenery from your penthouse. If you’re in a Miami Beach penthouse, you’ll get the best of both, and will own some of the most spectacular views available from any oceanfront penthouse in the world from the Atlantic Ocean sunrise to the Biscayne Bay sunsets to the sparkling City lights down below.

Miami has a huge skyline. This is yet a very large city with incredibly beautiful architecture and, when it sparkles at night, you can almost feel the pulse of this vibrant city through the windows high above. In an oceanfront penthouse, you can take in these magnificent views and, when you want something a bit more laid back, turn toward the Atlantic and take in all the majesty of this vast blue ocean. During the day, you’ll be treated to the site of ever changing sunrises and watch yachts being taken out for pleasure along with huge ships from the port playing the waters and keeping the economy moving. During the night, you’ll sometimes get views of the moon that you’d wish you could keep with you forever, with occasional lightning storms that will take your breath away and a vista that literally spans to the curve of the world.

Choosing an Oceanfront Penthouse

Luxury condo penthouses mean that, quite literally, you’re on top of the world. You’re on the top floor of the building, you’re on the top of a luxury high-rise and, if you’ve made it this far up, you get the privilege of looking down on the world below from a spectacular vista in your trophy home. You might choose one of these as a premier penthouse in the very best luxury oceanfront towers such as Icon South Beach, Portofino Tower, Murano at Portofino, Fontainebleau, W South Beach, Capri South Beach, Bellini Bal Harbour, Acqualina, Jade Beach, Trump Palace and Turnberry Ocean Colony while afterwards figuring out how to outfit your luxury penthouses with state-of-the art televisions, Crestron technology systems and other equipment. More than likely, the experience of seeing the world from such a high perch will soothe your nerves, calm your mind and make you feel like you have some time to enjoy the good life. A Miami Beach penthouse situated on top of a luxury condo high rise will have many other benefits, as well.

Oceanfront Penthouse Amenities

When you head down the elevator to the lower floors, you’ll find that most of these luxury high rise condo buildings have the amenities that you’d expect at the leading hotels in the world. The difference is that you can use & enjoy them every day from your resident condo building. You can go to the business center and get caught up on work or go to the spa and get caught up on relaxation time. You can socialize at the restaurants and bars or enjoy some quiet time lounging on the beaches with an umbrella. If you have an oceanfront penthouse, of course, you can also just get some quiet time in your own home, on the top of the world.

Florida_South_VendorsIncredible Enjoyment in South Florida. Miami Beach, home to some of the world’s most amazing stretches of white sand beach, crystalline waters and incredible relaxation, has long been the ideal spot for visitors.  Of course, Miami Beach is made up of quite a wide range of neighborhoods spread out like pearls on a string.  In this case, A1A, or Collins Avenue is the string and the pearls offer visitors and residents almost any form of rest, relaxation or enjoyment they might want.  From the beauty of South Pointe to the refinement of Sunny Isles Beach, a visitor to the area will discover an immensity of dazzling enjoyment.

The tour starts at the tip of Miami Beach, in the South Beach neighborhood, 1st Street, near South Pointe Park.  South Beach was once a languishing relic of a bygone era, but renewed interest from developers, consumers, tourists and those dedicated to saving the amazing Art Deco area changed all that back in the early 1980’s.  Today, South Beach stands at the heart of Miami Beach’s famed culture and plays host to some of the most amazing nightlife, shopping, dining and relaxation in the world.  Obviously, South Beach real estate is a worthwhile investment, whether you purchase in the famed Art Deco District or venture into a luxury condo of SoFi (South of Fifth).  South Beach is much more than a hideaway for hedonists or a place where celebrities congregate. It’s a way of living not found anywhere else in the world.

Take a stroll out of South Pointe Park heading North, the cross streets run numerically and you’ll find Washington Avenue as a main street running parallel to Collins Avenue, as well as Alton Road and South Pointe Drive bisecting the area furthest South.  A short stroll up Ocean Drive will show you to Prime 112 (a local celebrity restaurant), while South Beach’s Lummus Park is only 2 blocks up the coast spanning 12 blocks along Ocean Drive.  North on Ocean Drive past Fifth Street, you will find News Café, as well as Mango’s Tropical Café and the amazing stretch of Lummus Park, where you can waste away the entire day and enjoy the tropical environment & beautiful beaches. For a day of recreation, check out the 7 mile Lummus Park bordering the pristine waters and sands of the Atlantic Ocean.  This immense park is home to an incredible diversity of oceanfront enjoyment options and connects tourists & visitors alike to the white sandy beaches at Ocean Drive from 5th to 15th Streets.  The Miami Beach Golf Club is also justly famed with those who enjoy hitting the links. South Beach condos dot the area, as it has become home to some very luxurious modern condo developments over the past decade including Il Villaggio, 1500 OceanContinuum, ApogeeMurano Grande, Portofino Tower and more.

South Beach is home to much more than beaches and South Beach condos, though.  Of course, Miami Beach is justly famed as being home to some of the area’s most historic architecture & monuments to tropical indulgence and relaxation.  It’s also home to an incredible nightlife, which regularly draws visitors from around the globe.  You can stroll the city streets beneath the fantastic Art Deco architecture, and enjoy the scents and sounds of the clubs and restaurants coming alive around you.  Twenty-Four hour entertainment is close at hand, as the streets of Ocean Drive are often dotted with musicians playing bongos, guitars and singing the night away here in the heart of a tropical paradise. Once the sun drops below the Downtown Miami skyline to the west, the area truly comes alive and explodes in entertainment as the sun dips below the western horizon.  You can wind down each day by enjoying Miami Beach’s famed nightlife, which boasts open-roof lounges, corner musicians, celebrity nightclubs, international DJs and much more provide you with any type of excursion you might want after the sun sets.

For this reason, Miami Beach has become an incredible melting pot of cultures, with several different languages floating on the air at any given point in time.  The area boasts a very strong European influence, legacy of the jetsetters visiting the area, as well as a strong European community of expatriates.  Visitors will also find a strong Cuban flavor in the area with a large population of foreign “locals”.

Miami Beach real estate offers proximity to some of the best options for enjoyment in the world, whether you love the beach, dining, shopping or just indulging in people watching.  The area is home to the Wolfsonian-FIU Museum, where visitors can get a unique glimpse of modern history.  The Jewish Museum of Florida is also located here.  Art Basel Miami Beach, however, remains one of the strongest draws to visitors and local alike, offering an art-fair atmosphere in tropical luxury along with the Miami Beach International Boat Show & Strictly Sail, Art Deco weekend and so many other great attractions. Miami Beach condos also put you in close proximity to the Art Deco Colony Theater over on Lincoln Road, as well as the Byron Carlyle for dance and theatrical performances.  Fillmore Miami Beach, the Jackie Gleason Theater, the Holocaust Memorial and the “Arts in Public Places” program are also top attractions.  Those in need of something to eat will find an immensity of options, such as Joe’s Stone Crab, China Grill, Evolution (within the Ritz-Carlton) and the area’s Wine and Food Festival held each year.

Retail therapy for the shopaholic is likewise popular with the shopping district of Collins Avenue offering shopping just off the beach, while designer names like Nicole Miller, Club Monaco, Armani Exchange, Kenneth Cole and Ralph Lauren are also found in plenty.  Those who prefer boutique shopping in an outdoor environment will not suffer for options, as Lincoln Road has become a shoppers’ playground, where almost anything with a price tag can be bought or sold.

A short jaunt north of South Beach brings us to Miami Beach or mid-beach, also known as Millionaire’s Row (Concrete Canyon) where luxury towers were built in the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s bringing the celebrity demand to Miami Beach along with new condo towers from the last 5 years including Bath Club, MEi, 6000 Indian Creek, Canyon Ranch and Akoya.  Miami Beach is one of the hottest areas abutting Miami’s mainland and occupies a relatively large footprint on this delightful barrier island.  With the Biscayne Bay Intracoastal Waterway to the west and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, Miami Beach is bounded by South Beach to the south and Bal Harbour & Sunny Isles Beach to the north encompassing Miami Dade County “beaches”.

North of Miami Beach, you’ll find the famous location of Bal Harbour (92nd-102nd Streets).  Bal Harbour real estateputs you in the immediate vicinity of the Shops at Bal Harbour.  This ultra-luxury area plays host quite regularly to some of the world’s most noted celebrity hangouts & shopping, as well as the most desirable St. Regis Resort & Spaand One Bal Harbour condos catering to the rich and famous. Dining at Carpaccio, enjoying the Bal Harbour Shops and, of course, the incredible azure waters of the Atlantic are paramount attractions near Bal Harbour condos and you will find that the area is simply stunning, whether you want to relax on the beach in seclusion, or take advantage of the area’s incredible retail options. Collins Avenue (A1A) is the area’s main thoroughfare, which connects Bal Harbour with Sunny Isles Beach to the north and Surfside & Miami Beach to the south.

North of Bal Harbour (159th-192nd Streets) lies the amazing area known as Sunny Isles Beach.  To reach Sunny Isles Beach from Bal Harbour or Miami Beach, simply follow Collins Avenue (A1A) heading north.  This will actually continue up the main barrier island on which Miami Beach is situated.  In addition, you’ll find that this is the same direction you must travel if you wish to reach the Haulover Beach Park & Marina. Within Sunny Isles Beach, you will find an incredible number of options for rest and relaxation, as well as for shopping, dining and beach combing.  Sunny Isles Beach real estate is some of the most sought after in the area and includes uber-luxury condo towers such as Turnberry Ocean Colony, Jade Beach, Jade Ocean, Acqualina, Trump Palace, Trump Royale as well as Trump International Beach Resort and many more.

For recreation, whether shopping or simply enjoying the warm sunshine, the newly christened Newport Hotel & Fishing Pier is an excellent option.  This used to be Sunny Isles Fishing Pier, and is still home to tremendous fishing options, as well as being a great place for sightseeing and R&R. One of the most beneficial aspects of purchasing Sunny Isles Beach condos is the fact that they put you in easy proximity of destinations like Downtown Miami, Miami Beach, Golden Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Bal Harbour and of course, South Beach.  A short drive will take you to each of these destinations in just minutes; thus, the city is one of the most centered locations for visitors to the area, as well as for long-term residents wanting a reserved atmosphere.

Sunny Isles Beach is justly famed for the number of luxury residential accommodations.  However, its true claim to fame is the 2 mile stretch of pristine beachfront, lapped by the pure waters of the Atlantic Ocean.  Here, you will find anything you might wish to do, whether you favor snorkeling, scuba diving, walking on the beach with that special someone, or simply lounging the day away, serenaded by the sound of the waves caressing the shoreline. Sunny Isles Beach is also home to a restored and reinvigorated park area.  With their reenergized approach to development, the area is “going back to its roots” and visitors (as well as residents) are applauding the new park projects.  Dining options also abound, both on the oceanfront condo strip and in areas along Collins Avenue on the west in many of the shopping plazas.  The Porterhouse Bar & Grill, Tony Roma’s, Jalisco’s, La Terrazza, as well as Christine Lee’s are good choices for dining, while those who prefer retail therapy will find a host of shopping options on Collins Avenue, particularly in the town center where boutique properties proliferate.

Heading North through Sunny Isles Beach..
