This bayfront Coconut Grove mansion sits on the other side of Grove Isle, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. The brokerbabble compares the house to the nearby beautiful Vizcaya Museum & Gardens in its stateliness and timelessness, and that's not an exaggeration. The 10,000-square-foot Venetian-inspired, Moorish Revival estate has all the trappings of a royal European royal getaway. There are six bedrooms, eight bathrooms a grand hall with painted, vaulted cathedral-like ceilings, and cast-bronze chandeliers, and all the windows are outlined by detailed stone frames. But the outdoor niceties steal the show. Immaculately coiffed gardens cover the terraces. The patios coalesce into a long bridge that leads to a diving platform. Not to mention the sundeck, dock, and pool. Some new photos were recently added to the listing, which is holding steady at $7.9 million.
