The rapper Gunna (baby boomers, ask a millennial) unintentionally captured the vibe of The Regalia Miami Penthouse in his “Top Floor” song lyric, “Only thing above us is outdoors.”
Lyricist Edgar Leslie (millennials, ask a boomer) perfectly captured the mood the penthouse inspires in his American standard “Moon Over Miami”: “Hear how the waves offer thunderous applause / After each song to the stars.”
The Regalia Miami Penthouse is a six-bedroom dwelling spanning more than 16,000 square feet (10,755 square feet of interior with an outdoor terrace and rooftop adding another 6,050 square feet). Listed for $31.9 million, the uber-penthouse occupies the top floors of the Regalia Miami on Sunny Isles Beach, a barrier island city near North Miami Beach.
“This residence will never be duplicated,” says Adam Kaufman, the president and chairman of Legacy Development Sales & Marketing. “It sits in the best building in Florida and has completely unobstructed 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway, downtown Miami and Fort Lauderdale all the way out to the Everglades. This is a rare opportunity … .”
The luxurious aerie, spread over the topmost floors of the exclusive 46-story condominium tower, frames the views with floor-to-ceiling glass walls.
A custom rainfall chandelier and floating staircase in the great room serve as functional art installations. A glass-enclosed wine wall sits behind a smoky quartz-topped bar.
Upscale interior details include a custom Poliform kitchen with Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, Blanco Sevilla stone floors, large-plank Nikzad flooring, Lualdi Italian interior doors and Crestron smart-home automation.
The bathroom in the primary suite features walls and floors made up of more than $1 million of imported Calacatta bookmatched marble. In all, there are six full bathrooms and two half-baths.
Head up to the private rooftop via a pneumatic glass elevator to relax by the pool, play Top Chef in the summer kitchen or entertain friends with mixology wizardry at the bar.
The Regalia high-rise, a winner of three International Property Awards (architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica and decorator/designer Charles Allem of CAD International) boasts an oceanfront infinity pool with private poolside cabanas, cold-plunge pool, hot tub and resort-style beachfront services and amenities. There’s a resident spa (steam, sauna, couples massage room and hair salon), fitness center, yoga/meditation room, residents-only café and concierge services.
The midcentury modern Bal Harbour Shops’ designer boutiques are a quick hop away as is the Turnberry Isle Country Club with its championship golf courses. Gulfstream Park, a thoroughbred horse racetrack that operates year-round, is an easy drive as is Miami Beach―close enough to enjoy its hot nightlife and foodie dining yet just far enough away that the sometimes frenetic scene never need intrude on this hideout in the heavens.
