Indian Creek in Miami-Dade County is considered one of the most expensive and exclusive neighborhoods in the United States for its multi-million-dollar mansions and high-profile residents, ranging from billionaires to celebrities and athletes.
Indian Creek, a village tucked between Bal Harbour and Miami Beach, has 41 residential homes, a private country club, and advanced security. It’s so luxe, in fact, that Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner, Tom Brady, Carl Ichan, Julio Iglesias, and Adriana Lima all call Indian Creek home, likely for its high security and guard-gated grounds. So what does it cost to be a neighbor of the world’s most famous faces? In this case, $85 million.
The newest listing in Indian Creek, located at 12 Indian Creek Island Road, hit the market for $85 million and is listed by Dina Goldentayer and Danilo Tavares of Douglas Elliman. If sold for asking, this home would break the record for the most expensive sale in Billionaire’s Bunker. The current neighborhood record was a home sold in 2019 down the road for $50 million.
“Homes on Indian Creek are generational and it’s extremely rare for one to become available on the estate side of the island,” Goldentayer told me. “This is an opportunity to own a trophy property in a prime location with western exposure, open water views, and a rolodex of high-profile neighbors.”
The property encompasses two acres with a main residence spanning 23,286 square feet. There are seven bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, and 200 feet of water frontage along the bay. The home features incredible landscaping at every turn, including a regal hedge-lined driveway and classic motor court with water features and flanked by towering palms. The elegant, European-style home boasts grand living spaces with high ceilings, marble floors, and large windows that allow natural light to flood in.
The soaring ceilings, traditional finishes, and high-end materials provide a lavish foundation in which to live. The home features every amenity imaginable, including a hosting salon; office; gourmet kitchen with an eat-in breakfast nook; wood-paneled library; professional-grade movie theater; fireplace room; a wine cellar; and a wet bar. The home is exceptionally opulent, with gold chandeliers, printed wallpaper, marble finishes, coffered ceilings, ornate staircases, and marble columns. The home is prime for an avid art collector, as there’s plenty of wall space to hang cherished works.
For even further entertaining, there’s a 5,000-square-foot lower level. There are many living rooms, a formal dining room, and an expansive terrace that connects to several rooms for easy indoor-outdoor living. Outside is the pinnacle of resort-style living with a grand staircase that leads to the palatial pool deck. There is also a cabana house, lounge deck, manicured lawn space, and fragrant rose garden. This is a true legacy property that can be passed down generations.
Residents of Indian Creek also have access to Indian Creek Country Club. Indian Creek is located on an ultra-private, 300-acre guard-gated island with its own private police force. The dedicated officers patrol the land, sea, private golf club, and the roads within the community.
