Mayi de la Vega and Arlene Susy Dunand of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty – South Florida’s fastest growing luxury real estate firm that dominates the ultra luxury home market – today announced that they represented baseball icon Alex Rodriguez in the sale of his $30 million estate at 4358 North Bay Road in Miami Beach. The transaction closed on May 24, and was the highest sale price ever on the prestigious North Bay Road and one of the biggest sales on record in Miami Beach.
“The demand for trophy homes worldwide, especially those contemporary in design, has never been greater,” said de la Vega, CEO and Founder/Estate Agent of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, which has more than 300 agents across South Florida catering to the discerning needs of celebrities, CEOs and the international elite. “Alex’s home, with its stunning all glass design, natural coral rock and sleek white oaks floors, is a shining example of the modern architectural style that is very much in vogue today among affluent buyers.”
The Miami Beach home, located on one of the city’s most desirable streets, North Bay Road, is a modern masterpiece with uninterrupted views of Miami’s skyline and Biscayne Bay, featuring two docks and 275 feet of water frontage. The gated estate offers 19,861 square feet of living space, including nine bedrooms, 11 full and two half bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and a four-car garage.
The home was custom built in 2011 by Rodriguez’s Newport Property Construction, Ltd., which specializes in luxury home and office space development, and features a home theater with surround sound throughout, covered terraces, a vanishing-edge heated pool, outdoor kitchen and rooftop deck, amidst lush landscaping and Zen gardens. A stand-alone gym and 3,000-square-foot sports room, sauna and steam room, and a separate guest house also grace the 48,160-square-foot property.
