Private Lots in Miami - Build Your Dream Home!

miami real estate, ben moss, one sotheby's international, private lots

With all of the new construction happening in the luxury market today, let’s explore three of the best lots on which to build a dream home. New construction properties in these areas are selling upwards of $600/square foot. Building costs can approximate $300 - $350/square foot, so the more house you build, the more equity you stand to gain in a property. It is not uncommon for buyers in the areas to knock on doors of new custom mansions that are being built, and make offers. In some cases, the offers are so compelling that the person who was building his/her dream house, will actually sell it and pocket the gain and move on to a new opportunity or start building all over again in a new location.   When it comes to ultra-luxury compounds, buyers are very particular about where they want to build. Let’s look at my top choices.

4991 SW 86th ST

This coveted property is now being offered for sale for the first time in over 25 years. This is the most secluded and private lot in all of Ponce-Davis, completely surrounded by other acre-plus estates. Alex Rodriguez is building his dream house just two blocks away, and the Bacardi compound one block away would sell for $30,000,000 if it were ever offered for sale. The gated entrance to this property is approximately 400 ft. from Ponce De Leon road, the closest major road. Sufficient room to build your dream home, of up to 11,600 sq. ft., on a special lot enclosed by lush vegetation and nature. Useable lot area is larger than the listed records, due to easement of 86 street, which is used for the driveway. Offered at: $2,750,000.
