UPDATE: Chris Bosh from The Miami Heat has bought this incredible home for $12.5 Million according to The Miami Herald (We'll confirm as soon as it closes on the MLS) --- shows today as closing for $12,333,000 ***Sept 30th, 2010
Chris Bosh is da' bomb!! ....really. I've never been a huge basketball fan, but the way he stood up to Justin Timberlake during The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and then the fact that he bought contemporary instead of "Mediterranean-wanna-be".....just perfect!!! Congrats to Bosh on his new home, on his new engagement to the lovely Adrienne Williams, and I'm sure the new home will fit him and his future family like a glove.
(see the Tonight Show video at the bottom of this article - when Chris Bosh calls JT, " Justin Bieber" - too funny!)
This listing is the epitome of Sexy Miami Beach Real Estate - with white, sleek, contemporary finishes on a canvas of gorgeous blue bay water. North Bay Road is known for its architecture and style and it doesn't hurt that these homes look out into endless bay views. The location of this home is just south of La Gorce Island, close enough to South Beach but with enough privacy to make it the perfect location. A lot of people prefer island living instead of North Bay Road, I say it depends on your lifestyle - and this property may just be the perfect one.

Listed for $18,000,000 reduced to $14,970,000
Some may think the house is a bit too white for their taste, but that's an easy fix. White in Miami architecture represents a clean slate of contemporary minimalism where the beach and water setting is what creates the space. (not too practical for kids.....but beautiful nevertheless)
