    I agree with @Onions. Not worth $8.9 million. Interior is nice, but nothing spectacular.

    This has to be one of the Bear’s Club biggest disappointments. No doubt, the community itself is truly exclusive. The home though looks like its 5,000 square feet, certainly smaller than anything else in the community. I wouldn’t mind the outside if only it was bigger.

    The inside is the same. I don’t see 11,000+ square-feet (total or air-conditioned). The inside just seems like they were on a budget. If you wanted to do a Contemporary-Mediterranean home, at last make the interior something worthwhile. This house would be more appropriate for Coral Gables.

    The price is ridiculous. While it wouldn’t be outrageous if the home was another 5,000 square-feet, at this price it will not budge. I would rather have ANY other home in the community than this one. It’s a bore. For example:

    Or better yet, I would head across the street to Admiral’s Cove. Waterfront and it’s a country club. Best of both world’s.

      I’m guessing the seller (the builder?) is counting on the fact that it’s new to get the higher price. I don’t think they’ll get it, but more power to ’em!

        They’d get it if it was a style people want. Contemporary homes tend to have lower overall prices here. The community certainly has seen homes go for more, but they were all bigger and a Mediterranean style. I see it going for around $5 million.

    Finally, a house in Florida that isn’t the same bland and boring pseudo-Spanish/Mediterranean. The outside isn’t remarkable, and I would get rid of the barrel tile roof and replace it with something a little more modern in style.

    The interior is definitely nice, although I would still change some things. It’s a very good place to start and could be “finished” very easily by changing only a few things. It’s nice to see a kitchen that doesn’t revert back to the banality of traditional-looking cabinetry. What is that thing above the circular part of the island? A light fixture? I think it would be one of the things that would go! I love the entry way and staircase; it all looks very well tailored. The living/dining room is nice enough, but seems small for a house this size. I don’t like the ceiling treatment; it ruins the simplicity of the space. Overall, I like a lot of it.

    As for the location, I have no desire to live in a “golf community” or overlook a golf course. For me, living in Florida means living on the water. The price seems in line with other houses in the development however.

    It is nice, it looks like it cost about $1 million or so to build, so where is the other $8 million from?

    When I saw the square footage & then the price, I choked a little. Out here in CA you see those kind of prices all the time, but not in FL! Even for a new build, (I used to live in FL, so I’m not just postulating!) Good luck!

    The kitchen would be perfect to work in if it has a 2nd sink on the back wall or on the island. Otherwise, you have to go around the darn thing everytime you want to use the sink. I love the stainless steel (Viking) refrigerator & freezer set split up by the 2 ovens & coffee station (Miele). It was even smart of them to put the stove on the island because of its proximity to the ‘fridge. I don’t know what has me on this ‘Kitchen Quest’, but I like it, so please forgive me, I’ll try to find something else to blab about in the future! 😉
