3 Indian Creek Road Miami real-estate recordThe Alexander Team of Douglas Elliman Real Estate

  • A waterfront Miami estate has set the real-estate record for single-family home sales twice in the past seven years.
  • In 2012, the property at 3 Indian Creek Island Road sold for $47 million; on February 5, it broke its own record by selling for $50 million.
  • The 2-acre estate sits on the edge of a golf course on a private island and has 10 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, and a 100-foot pool.

A waterfront estate an hour north of Miami has now broken a real-estate record not once, but twice.

The sale was closed by Tal Alexander and Oren Alexander of The Alexander Team at Douglas Elliman on February 5 for a total of $50 million. It previously sold for $47 million in 2012, at which time it became the most expensive single-family home ever sold in the Miami area.

The 10-bedroom home at 3 Indian Creek Island Road sits on two acres of land on a private island. The identity of the new buyer has not been disclosed.

Notably, the house did not break the Miami residential real-estate record at large. That's still held by Ken Griffin's $60 million purchase of a two-floor condo in Faena House in 2015.

Here's a look at the glass mansion and its two-acre property.
