A new modern home in Pinecrest just sold for $5.5 million, representing the highest sale in the area so far this year.
Located at 9701 Southwest 63rd Court, the home was sold by Giorgio and Adi Balli, an architect and interior designer, respectively. Selling for $665 a foot, the tropical modern residence is over 8,000 square feet, with six bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, a wine cellar, home theater, outdoor kitchen, lap pool, and an indoor courtyard with a waterfall.
It also includes limestone floors, a master bath sauna, automated window treatments and smart-home technology. Bought for $1 million in 2014, it’s not far from the $4.87 million home recently purchased by Miami Heat guard Tyler Johnson.
"Pinecrest has continued to grow as an ideal neighborhood for the affluent in South Florida," said Tony Rodriguez-Tellaheche, co-founder of Prestige Realty Group, who represented the seller. "Its large lots and excellent schools have made it an extremely appealing and stable neighborhood."
