The perfect home for wealthy animal lovers has just hit the market in the City of Coral Gables in Florida, United States. Featuring an animal mural on the rotunda ceiling and a private collector’s hall for displaying a large statue of a horse, this house will cost you an astronomical $67 million, making it the second-most expensive listing in the Miami-Dade County (the most expensive one costing $75 million).
The 20,862 sq. ft. estate currently belongs to car dealer Alan Potamkin and his wife, Brigitt Rok-Potamkin. A nature enthusiast, Potamkin has put in two saltwater aquariums, an aviary and many unique trees at the mansion, including century-old Tanzanian Baobab and Banyan trees.
“There’s plenty of room for animals to roam around the property,” says Jill Eber, who along with Jill Hertzberg of Coldwell Banker, has the listing. The 3.6-acre lot juts out into the Biscayne Bay, thus offering a stunning broad waterfront view and also 937 feet of private water frontage, which includes a private beach.
It was constructed in 2000 and the interiors of the house have been elegantly done with exceptional craftsmanship. There are three fully furnished levels of living space with nine bedrooms, a gym, game room, nanny’s quarters, tennis court, pool, guest house and a 100-foot-long boat dock.
The main floor has a main and separate chef’s kitchen, a formal dining room and a 1,500-bottle wine room. It also boasts the family room with a movie projector, multiple offices, a den, a guest bedroom, and a children’s playroom. There are three fireplaces as well.
The second floor has a master suite with a fireplace, his-and-hers walk-in closets, three additional bedrooms and an art gallery. The basement is for “relaxation and entertaining” and features a game and billiard room with a kitchenette and full gym, a boxing room, massage room, and a two-bedroom nanny unit.
