[Cue Will Smith's 1998 classic "Miami" for this entire post.]
I normally hate choosing favorites, but this is definitely my favorite Urban Oasis yet. Located in one of Miami’s top waterfront locations, this contemporary apartment provides both calming views of the water and enticing Miami nightlife just steps away. New York and Chicago both had drool-worthy views, but there’s just something about the Biscayne Bay that draws me in. I think I could live on the terrace and be perfectly content.
You do know that you could live here, right? You have 48 days left to enter to win this high-rise home in South Florida. Between now and October 15, enter twice online per day — once on HGTV.com and once on FrontDoor.com — for your chance to win! I seriously doubt you need a reminder to enter (I mean, just look at this place!), but just in case, let’s take a quick tour.
Interior designer Linda Woodrum uses big, bold artwork in the expansive foyer to welcome guests to Miami.
The contemporary kitchen is inspired by blues from the Biscayne Bay and features gold Calacatta marble and cabinetry installed to ceiling height.
Floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room provide stunning views of Miami Beach and the bay, further inspiring the room’s color palette of blues and greens.
An eight-foot terrace overlooking the Biscayne Bay is the perfect place for entertaining guests or relaxing year round.
The master bedroom is truly one-of-a-kind with an eye-catching rustic wooden wall treatment, canopy bed, bubble ceiling sconce, French hotel-style linens and a hand-loomed area rug. And you can’t forget those floor-to-ceiling windows that look right out to the water.
The spa-style master bathroom is simply an elegant continuation of the bedroom with a contemporary furniture-style vanity covered in matte marble. Glass subway tile creates a stunning backsplash above the vanity and acts as an accent in the spacious shower.
Guests will be more than happy to reside in this tranquil retreat during their stay. The suite comes with a lounge area overlooking the water, full bathroom and walk-in closet. They may never want to leave!
