Exquisitely built Art Deco Mediterranean 2-story pool home by famed architect Lawrence Murray Dixon. Murray

designed some of the most popular and famous hotels in Miami Beach. These include The Victor Hotel (1937),

The Raleigh Hotel (1940), The Marlin (1939), The Tides Hotel (1936), The Senator (1939), and The Ritz Plaza

Hotel (1940), to name a few. He was famous for his use of curved surfaces, which are evident throughout this

house (archways, elegantly curved ceiling blending into the staircase)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Walking in to the soothing foyer, you step down into the perfectly designed sunken living room with romantic

fireplace and hand-laid Italian tile. It took 3 men 2 months to complete just the fireplace alone, as each tile was

carefully chosen for its aesthetic look and fit (many were removed and replaced in the process in order to

eventually achieve just the right combination of uniqueness, style, and glamor) and is a true work of art.

Sitting in the roomy living room and looking out the front, uniquely-styled curved windows, you feel like you are

in a lush, exotic location. Surrounded by picturesque birds of paradise plants and imported Hawaiian

coconut trees; eat the coconuts that fall to the ground when in season - the pure white meat is prized by locals who stop by every season asking for a few coconuts to take home. The coconut water that springs from inside each delicate shell is a true connoisseur's delight. Come when the coconuts are delicious and ready to eat.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The masterfully designed entertainment room is lavishly surrounded by oversized windows which oversee the dramatically designed and luxuriously private pool area. Refreshing water gushes from the mouth of a hand crafted lion statue and is the first thing you notice when gently stepping outside into the private canopy of the pool area. The awe-inducing Lion Fountain sprouts delicious waterfalls on each side of it that, if you close your eyes while letting the water gently cascade onto your now-soothed head, and listen to the sweetly chirping birds and tropical parrots that live in the towering coconut trees at the head of the house, will convincingly make you feel as if you are the only person on this secluded tropical oasis.

You will want to spend most of your time in this private pool area surrounded by 12' tall ficus trees and wooden fence to assure your privacy. The secure and private design of the pool area will really allow you to enjoy this spectacular oasis in Miami Beach.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I was born in Miami, but grew up away from the beach. Nevertheless, I was a life-long beach and ocean fanatic and always made my way to the beach on a regular basis.

I went away for 21 years to work with NASA as an Aerospace Engineer. When my son was born 6 years ago I came back. I love being this close to the ocean and enjoying everything Miami Beach has to offer.

Harry Johnson Jr purchased this house in 2002

I grew up in Miami, but have always had an affinity to the ocean. 8 years ago we purchased this home, fully expecting to live here for the rest of our lives. My son was born here, so it holds a special place for me. The memories are priceless.

What attracted us to this home was the peacefulness of the neighborhood, as well as the proximity to the ocean. The home has a certain calm associated with it, and the privacy of the pool area, being surrounded by lush vegetation, was certainly a key factor in us buying the home.

Great location but not a great property.

  • 2 of 5
The property was at best average. There were some issues with the house that were disappointing. The main one being the pool was filthy and the filter system did not seem to be working. Full disclosure…I did not contact the owner about it because we were only there for a couple of days and I felt by the time the problem would have been dealt with it would have been too late. I would have expected the pool to be in good condition as it is one of the draws of the house.

The owners were responsive before our arrival which was nice. The biggest drawback is that the house is a true rental and is sparsely furnished with older furniture that is basic at best. Electronics are 15 years old, generally speaking we were not necessarily in Miami Beach to watch TV but I had my ailing brother with me so we spent some extra time at the house. The owner sent me a nice email after our rental to which I replied with some of the issues we faced and have not heard back from him so I hope they have been taken care of for future renters.

My friends and I stayed at this house during my bachelor weekend for a few nights and found it to be quite relaxing. It wasn't far from many shops and restaurants and was in walking distance to the beach, I would defintiley stay here again. The house slept 6 comfortably.

Great Location But a LittleTired Looking

  • 3 of 5
Our family of five stayed for a week in the house; the property owner was attentive to few initial concerns which he quickly rectified. The house is large and the pool is good; like the previous reviewer, the furniture is tired and the house could use some attention. Since the owner does not seem to live there, this inattention to detail shows.
The location to south beach is excellent; the neighbourhood is quiet and residential which suited us well as we retire early most evenings. The house was easy to find and very close to attractions of south beach.
