A charming home owned by late Miami fashion pioneer Sir Edward Porter just listed for $12.9 million.
Located at 4736 North Bay Road in Miami Beach, the 8,521-square-foot residence has nine bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and was originally built in the 1920s by Jersey City Mayor Frank Hague. It’s on the market for the first time since the 1960s.
Among the estate’s features: 120 feet of water frontage along Biscayne Bay, a 22-foot cathedral ceiling in the living room, original 1920s kitchen tiles, multiple fountains, and a master suite with vaulted ceilings overlooking the water. Adam Levine also did a photoshoot at the Mediterranean residence for People Magazine’s 2013 Sexiest Man Alive.
Porter, who co-founded Miami’s International Fine Arts College (now known as Miami International University of Art & Design) with his wife, passed away at 96 last March.
The property is represented by ONE Sotheby’s Mikhael Porter, Mirce Curkoski, and Albert Justo.
