I got a tour of the penthouse on a recent trip to Miami with Douglas Elliman Real Estate. We took the elevator up to the top of the tower, where we stepped into the private grand entryway of the triplex penthouse.
The first room I saw was the expansive master suite.Advertisement
Wraparound floor-to-ceiling windows filled the room with sunlight and made for beautiful views of the ocean stretching to the east.

... as well as Fisher Island, the richest zip code in the US, where the average income is $2.2 million and the beaches have sand imported from the Bahamas.
To the east is the seemingly endless blue of the Atlantic Ocean.Advertisement
I stepped into the master bathroom, which features marble floors, double vanities, and large mirrors that reflect the Florida sunshine.

The bathroom also has a walk-in double shower and its own small terrace.
Next, I got a look at the screening room, which is decorated with several plush couches and chairs.Advertisement
Then I peeked into some of the penthouse's other bedrooms.

I stepped out onto the penthouse's main terrace and was blown away by its size.Advertisement
The 6,091-square-foot outdoor space was empty during my tour, but I could imagine it fitting a BBQ area, an outdoor bar, and several spots for outdoor dining and lounging.
And finally, there's the private pool, which sits on the level above the main terrace and overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.Advertisement
