Pretty much everywhere you look in this deluxe 16-story condo, your views are nothing but sky, ocean and Miami skyline. Even the dining room and kitchen have mirrored walls to reflect the breathtaking views.
Penthouse 1610 is the trophy unit of the new 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach, which is at 102 24th St.,being developed by LeFrak and Starwood Capital Group. It is one of 155 swank residences—perhaps the swankiest—atop an 18-story luxury resort.
“It’s the best unit we have because of the southeast exposure,” sales director Carolina Rainer said. “Basically, you’re in a boat.”
It’s also one of the the few duplex penthouses on the market in the area, she said.
Furnished by Miami-based Rose Ink Workshop in collaboration with the 1 Hotels design team, Penthouse 1610 highlights its stunning ocean views with energy-efficient floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors throughout. It’s a turnkey unit—all of the furnishings and materials are included.
“It’s a beautiful experience to walk into that unit,” Ms. Rainer said. “It’s comfortable but chic. It’s homey.”
In the lounges, the designer used oversize beachy slip-covered furniture and a range of sculptural case goods on top of large, chunky wool and sisal rugs to create an eco-glam look.
“It’s like living in a luxury hotel, with concierge service, in-room dining and maid service,” Ms. Rainer said. “The owners can rent it out—or not.”
The two-story condo has 3,955 square feet of living space with four bedrooms, five full bathrooms and one half bath. There are balconies on both floors, with a total 745 square feet of outdoor space.
Among the notable design features from Rose Ink Workshop is a custom lighting installation made of tens of thousands of naturally formed quartz crystals that have been arranged to form the Sagittarius constellation, a symbol of optimism, discovery, travel and an exploration into the meaning of life.
Another unusual design feature is an organic, root-sculpture chandelier mixed with a vertical garden of Vanda orchids that hang at the stairs connecting the two floors of the duplex penthouse.
Along with 600 feet of beachfront, owners at 1 Hotel & Homes have access to four elevated oceanfront swimming pools, an onsite SoulCycle studio, an 18,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, three high-quality restaurants and bars from award-winning chef Tom Colicchio, and a stylish rooftop pool and restaurant-bar with panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and Miami skyline.
Owners have their own private residence entrance staffed with 24-hour concierge services and valet parking. Other privileges include a Tesla house car service; pre-arrival kitchen and pantry stocking with a local, organic option; in-home natural care botanical service and eco-conscious housekeeping and linen service.
The apartment itself has a custom Italkraft kitchen with imported Italian silver travertine, white quartz countertops, Wolf appliances, Dornbracht faucets and trash, composting and recycling bins.
The seven-acre 1 Hotel & Homes South Beach has 600 linear feet of pristine beachfront and takes up an entire city block of Collins Avenue. You’re in the heart of South Beach and its trendy clubs, bars and restaurants.
“You’re within walking distance of everything,” Ms. Rainer said.
