The main level is dedicated to a formal dining room, bar, and lounge with 180-degree views of the garden; an open-plan entertainment space; reading den; movie lounge; formal living room; media room; and play area, plus a private office with an en-suite bath.

Exclusive marketed by Douglas Elliman’s Alexander Team, Bora Bora encourages seamless indoor-outdoor living; outside rests an outdoor kitchen deck, an ocean-view sun terrace, and a lap pool and hot tub, all surrounded by lush flora. A tropical garden with water flowing through the residence creates a tranquil atmosphere inside and out. A staircase suspended over the gentle stream leads to the second floor, which showcases the master suite—complete with a balcony overlooking the pool—plus an exercise area with a meditation terrace, and several guest rooms.

Constructed out of concrete, the vine-adorned “smart” residence boasts an exterior facade finished in smooth white stucco, with details including impact-resistant windows, storm shutters, stacked stonewall, wooden slats, and oolite stone.

“The design of the house was inspired by the architecture that sits on water in Bora Bora and the way the water goes around these pavilions and into the house,” said Jacob Abramson, director of operations at Miami Golden, LLC, the project’s developer. “There are multiple levels of outdoor space connecting to the luscious landscape. It’s a tropical experience, like a private resort in the elegant community of Golden Beach, which has become the neighborhood of choice for people seeking a peaceful oasis within easy reach of Miami’s urban lifestyle.”

Chad Oppenheim‘s Florida-based firm, Oppenheim Architecture, has just unveiled plans for a 23,000-square-foot, resort-style residence in Golden Beach, set to break ground in the coming year.

Equipped with an energy-efficient green roof, the home—which boasts 6,000 square feet of terraces, along with a 5,000-square-foot spa and fitness floor—showcases numerous spa pools, sunken hamman rooms, an entertainment area complete with a home theater, a safe room, and a lap pool accompanied by a waterfall. In addition, staff quarters have a separate entrance and staircase access within the villa.

The modern, temperature-controlled abode—which wholly reflects the sustainable, nature-inspired design Oppenheim is renowned for creating—touts an exterior complemented by a three-story eco-wall, which features 25 different plant species that will magnificently burgeon and wrap around a spiral staircase and hydraulic elevator.

The house is reminiscent of a few of Oppenheim’s past residential creations, particularly the Bal Harbour House, which sports a similar streamlined, rectangular structure that seamlessly blends in with its natural surroundings.
