For only the second time in its storied, 50-year history, the magnificent, 5-acre Coconut Grove estate commissioned in 1964 by the DuPonts has gone on the market. “Baymere” – a magical setting evocative of a Bond movie in which 007 arrives for cocktails via watercraft – is replete with features that even old money can no longer buy (including a man-made private cove, protected harbor, jetty-style dock and cavernous boat house/seaplane hangar). Designed by architect Scott B. Arnold, Baymere was built “for the ages” from Ohio Sandstone, Florida Keystone and poured concrete. The fortress-like standards adhered to in its construction are also a thing of the past. Each custom detail, from generously sized moldings, to über-solid hardwood doors, cabinets, shelving and closets, connotes craftsmanship of a bygone era. Its Mid-Century Modern lines, wood, marble and tile floors, spacious rooms, volume ceilings and broad expanses of glass are relevant today, and provide formidable building blocks for restoring or reinventing this extraordinary residence (two stories, plus a full basement and third-floor observatory). Everything about this unparalleled waterfront playground, with its vast pool, wading ponds, fountain, patios, tiered terraces, tennis court, guest house and staff quarters, connotes old money and old Miami. Bounded on the north and south by protected habitat, and framed by mature trees and a rolling lawn, the 26,981 adj. SF, 33-room Baymere sits atop a gentle slope that commands wide-angle views of Biscayne Bay along 600+ feet of waterfront. Indeed, Baymere’s virtually unlimited potential as a Florida winter retreat, full-time family compound or subdivided, 7-home luxury enclave fires the imagination. Must be seen to be believed. Offered at $22 million.
