With woven furniture and a built-in bench for added seating, this Mediterranean terrace is situated to take advantage of its surrounding landscape and stunning views. The Porto Rafael villa features a main manor and two annexes, all designed to showcase the sparkling blue waters of the Mediterranean and the lush foliage that surrounds the property.
This master bath, designed by Barry Dixon, exudes subtle luxury—a cozy fireplace, handsome marble tiles stretching up the walls, even a table for tea in front of the fire. A large wardrobe provides storage for towels and other necessities.
From the water, the view of this 18,000-square-foot Miami Beach estate is pristine and spectacular. An arched portico runs along the rear central wing of the home, which was built in 1937 in the Mediterranean Revival style. The property has undergone an extensive renovation to turn it into a great space for modern living and entertaining.
Ceilings that reach two stories high give a sweeping, cathedral-like feel to this living room. The entire side wall pulls back to open up access to the patio, doubling the living and entertaining space.
Standing tall at an impressive three stories, this white Mediterranean style home boasts a porch on the third floor with a pergola. Stone pavers in gravel lead up to an iron gate, adding to the already charming curb appeal.
Entering this Mediterranean masterpiece, guests are greeted with a beautiful, marble spiral staircase that leads down into an open seating area complete with built-in alcoves to display fine artwork. Lit by a perfectly situated fireplace and a gorgeous glass chandelier, this cozy seating area s perfect for formal entertaining.
The remodel satisfied the homeowners’ desire for more space; among the rooms that were remodeled were a ground-floor kitchen and a second-floor bathroom. Every detail of the remodel was designed to meet the strict requirements of the Mills Act for remodeling historical homes.
Spanish Living Room with Beamed Ceiling, Stone Fireplace
Light stone and dark wood finishes combine for dramatic effect in this Spanish-inspired living room. A stone fireplace extends to the cathedral-height ceiling to create a dynamic focal point. The scale of the room, coupled with elements like dark ceiling beams, round candelabra fixtures and interior balconies, gives the space the feel of a modern-day Medieval great hall.
Stunning ocean views are the highlight of this airy Mediterranean-style dining room. A long wood table, big enough for 10, creates the ideal place to gather with friends and family. The large windows, rustic ceiling beams, brick floors and bright white walls offer plenty of style in the well-lit space.
