A spectacular piece of land jutting out into the Bal Harbour Marina, which was the location of the Bal Harbour Yacht Club and was listed less than four months ago for a whopping $65 million, is apparently under contract, according to a note on the website of its broker, Douglas Elliman. Although the pending sale is not yet being promoted by either the P.R. teams of Elliman, seller's agent Tony Imbesi, or the seller himself (and Tony's dad) Joseph Imbesi, if the listing price was achieved, it will be the newest record for the highest-priced single-family residential sale ever in Miami-Dade County.
Sadly demolished, the Bal Harbour Yacht Club was a magnificent piece of subtropical modern architecture designed by seminal South Florida architect Alfred Browning Parker, in the heart of the exclusive community of Bal Harbour, Florida. Its just-as-magnificent peninsula site survives, with water on three sides and the underwater rights to the lagoon which that peninsula creates, and is now for sale as a private home site for a whopping $65 million.
