Star Island: Ultimate Oceanfront Luxury
The luxury market has been marked with stagnant sales and hefty price reductions for several years, and now, all of a sudden, Star Island is witnessing newfound prosperity as the wealthy and affluent of America turn towards Florida. Aside from the gorgeous year-round weather and considerably lower taxes, Florida attracts celebrities and luxury seekers with its natural charm.
In the wake of the pandemic, real estate trends are changing dramatically as buyers and investors are seeking out developments that are grounded with nature and outdoor spaces. Celebrities and wealthy buyers are turning towards Miami’s Star Island as its magnificently designed mansions provide seamless indoor spaces that are well-connected with nature and the Great Outdoors.
Recently, Samuel Jacobson and Roni Jacobson, affluent real estate investors, have returned to make another sizable investment on Miami Beach after six years of selling their house on the luxury island. They have purchased an idyllic home for $12 million. The 5,493-square-foot property on Star Island Drive was sold by the late Dr. Ida Kirsner’s family.
Constructed back in 1961, the home was owned by Kirsner for decades, and its prestigious location and the stunning waterfront with 100 feet of water makes it the epitome of Miami’s luxurious nature-attuned lifestyle.
In case you’re wondering, Star Island offers plenty of space to construct a large villa or mansion. For instance, the previous home of the Jacobson’s, sold in 2014 for $18.8 million, was constructed over 60,000 square feet of prime real estate.
This wealthy and opulent enclave only features 34 homes, and five of these properties available on Star Island have been sold since June. Recently, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez have purchased a beautiful home on the enclave, prompting other Hollywood trendsetters to follow suit.
Jennifer Lopez and her beau have invested in a glorious waterfront mansion of 13 Sta Island Drive for a whopping $32.5 million. Their 10-bedroom villa is a breathtaking vision of Mediterranean-style architecture. It comes with a cabana, dock and covered bar, pool with a jacuzzi, wine room, fully-equipped chef’s kitchen, and a library. We can’t stop gushing over the stunning 100 feet of water frontage!
Star Island has quickly emerged as the ultimate luxury getaway for celebrities and wealthy investors, and it appears that its popularity is expected to soar more heights in the months
