What's not in the photograph is the port of Miami where you can see the cruise ships docking. #architecture Miami comes with good and bad, as does any city. I've lived in south Florida for most of my life, and I still find things to discover in this melting pot. I can tell you one thing: the view is always awesome.

He was inspired by European architecture, specifically Italian villas, but also wanted to include traditional Florida history and materials in his home. The unique mix of European and Floridian design is so interesting and beautiful. As we drove through the gates, we felt as if we stepped out of Miami and into a totally different world. We were in awe that this estate sat literally a mile down the road from the renown skyline, bikinis, and bars of Miami.
