Mar-a-Villa...Your Perennial Vacation Awaits. Located in Sunrise Harbour, a guard-gated tropical hamlet in sunny Coral Gables, the Mar-a-Villa was conceived by noted architect, Ramon Pacheco, and its current owners a little less than 10 years ago. The level of architectural detail is profound and offers a glimpse of a style that is reminiscent of life along the Mediterranean coast. The result is an inspirational estate directly positioned on much-photographed Biscayne Bay. Rising up three impressive stories, you are first welcomed by a towering fountain, similar to that of fountains in Portofino, and graceful curving staircases. Once inside, the estate offers 5 bedrooms, a den/office (or 6th bedroom), 5.5 baths, 2 family rooms, formal living and dining rooms, breakfast area, media room, elevator, garage, pool and summer kitchen. In addition, there are bonus recreational areas and a full bathroom at pool level. Its lofty foyer entry is, of course, grand but your eyes will feast on the phenomenal open bay views right from the entry. On occasion, dolphins have been spotted frolicking in these beautiful, warm waters. The Mar-a-Villa was designed for maximum impact of the water as it blends inside and outside living by the use of the many covered and uncovered balconies, terraces and windows. With 100 feet on the bay, the estate boasts a concrete, full-service "T" dock that will accommodate up to 4 vessels. So, come by boat or come by chariot, your trophy bayfront estate has hit the market and is for the taking at a list price of $8,950,000.
