Tucked away in Hibiscus Island sits a two-story, modern waterfront home with eco-friendly amenities that’s listed for $12.5 million.

The five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom estate is nearly 6,000 square feet and sits on a narrow 9,000-plus-square-foot lot surrounded by Biscayne Bay.

The captivating home—designed by award-winning architecture firm Choeff Levy Fischman—is a green lover’s dream come true.

Located at 421 North Hibiscus, the tropical sanctuary features amenities such as a rainwater retention system that includes exfiltration trenches to filter water, low-e film to reduce solar glare, and an Albedo roof membrane that minimizes heat.

According to the firm, the property is specifically designed to withstand Miami’s natural elements such as hurricane winds, storm surges, and rising sea levels. A seawall that stands at 7.26 NGVD protects the residency.

The interior of the home is a fresh take on modern living—it integrates nature into each room. Residents get a view of the outdoors or the bay depending on his location within the home.

Limestone flooring, Italian millwork, and Brazilian wood accent can be found throughout the property.

The kitchen—which includes a backsplash, countertops, and island made of Calacatta marble—features a bar with two subzero wine coolers.

The first floor also features a spacious living room.

Floor-to-ceiling walls separate the interior from the exterior, while sliding doors that disappear into Cumaru pockets lead residents to a lush bamboo garden.

A quick stroll upstairs leads to a floating master bedroom that includes Brazilian Oak wood floors, and walls of white stucco and Cumaru wood. The balcony, which faces the water, gives a panoramic view of Miami’s skyline. An office is also located upstairs.

The master bathroom includes a large tub and marble shower that’s perfect for relaxing after a long day at work. It also gives the buyer access to the terrace.

A 500-plus-square-foot pool, shaded patio area, and a cascading waterfall set against stone accents add a tropical ambiance to the property’s exterior.
