    Well…do you think they took the sun motif a little too far? The exterior is a little eccentric. I think if you toned down the colors it would be a great looking home. The lot, pool, and view are fantastic. Although I’d never use it, a bayfront tennis court is a very amenity in Miami Beach. The interior, like the front, needs to be toned down. The grey marble floors in the foyer are terrible. The dining room I would keep nearly as-is. The kitchen is incredibly disappointing. The price is very optimistic – I’d rather buy a lot or teardown on Indian Creek and build my own estate.

    The rear facade, pool, and waterfront location are great. The rest is…comical. Even with the terrible blue tile on the front removed, the facade would still be poorly proportioned, and the garage doors would still be a focus of the front entrance. The sun image on the cupola is a silly pointless detail; are the owners trying to say that out of all the people in Miami, they are the ones who love the sun? OK.

    The interior couldn’t look less comfortable. I get the sense that the design goal was “Venetian palazzo” (think: Vizcaya), but it fails miserably.

    Sick pool.Sick lot.Sick dockage. Not a big fan of the actual house.Though like others have previously posted…it does “hit all the notes” when it comes to telling the story of what Miami is about.

    GAUDY.. GAUDY.. GAUDY ! Someone tell the owners that La Gorce Island is NOT Star Island or Indian Creek Island. They overpaid in 2001 when they paid $12,450,000 for this house. Records show the yearly tax bill on this dump is $278,643.57 !! ouch.

    I have to give it an award for “Most Pretentious and Farcical Mansion Name in Recent HomesoftheRich History.”

    CASTELLO del Sole? Where are the towers? The batiments? The big iron gate to keep marauding 99%ers out?

    Love this place!! THIS is Miami. This is why I love houses down south, and am bored with northern styles. “Hey, lets make sure we look like everyone else”..booorring. Down south, people aren’t afraid of colors and standing out. When can I move in!

    Noticed that there is no square footage on this. I think it is pretty tiny for 35 mill. I don’t mind the eccentric touches. It kind of makes me think of a mad Spanish nobleman. I don’t think this really qualifies as a “compound” A guesthouse and a gym do not a compound make. I think this guy is dreaming about the price.
