Inside Miami’s Adrienne Arsht Estate, On The Market For An Eye-Watering $150 Million

When the exquisitely wealthy businesswoman and philanthropist Adrienne Arsht listed her magnificent and massive Miami estate for sale in January, spectacularly priced at $150 million, it was a news item significant enough to command splashy spreads on the covers of the Miami Herald and the Wall Street Journal's Mansion section. To put it mildly, it was a major, major news item, not just because it could set a new record for the most expensive residential sale in South Florida, but because of the size, prominence, and history of the property itself.

This immaculately preserved and restored palazzo in the heart of Morningside, the City of Miami's first historic district, was built in 1926. It hist the market on Sunday for $3,399,000, and in the intervening time it must have had a pretty exciting existence, if the bright and eclectic interior is any evidence. Located at 5600 NE 6th Avenue, the house is in the heart of the neighborhood.

Star Island’s $40 Million Yacht Club Mansion is Still on the Market After Three Years

There could be something funky about the house. Certainly the combination of original Med Revival architectural details, and modern-day alterations that don't quite seamlessly duplicate the quality of the house, might make it look a little off. But this massive $40 million house has stuck on the market for three years more likely because, well, it's a sluggish market.
