One of Miami Beach's most prestigious neighborhoods for ultra-luxury waterfront homes is the western section of Miami Beach known as the North Bay Road neighborhood. North Bay Road starts just north of 20th Street in South Beach and continues north just past 63rd Street and ends at prestigious La Gorce Island. North Bay Road homes are characterized as "waterfront Estates" along the water, with the vast majority of these Mansions having been completely remodeled and updated over the past few years. Waterfront lot sizes range from a minimum of approximately 13,000 SF facing the Biscayne Bay, to well over 50,000 SF for some of the larger combined waterfront Estates.
North Bay Road homes are available in a number of different construction style and configuration, suiting just about every taste and budget. Some of the notable current and past owners of waterfront Estates on North Bay Road include Matt Damon, Alex Rodriguez, Cher, Shakira, and many others. Real estate in the North Bay Road neighborhood is widely considered among the most private and prestigious in the world. Those looking to live and own in one of the most prestigious and affluent neighborhoods, for a more limited budget, can consider one of the many non-waterfront options along North Bay Road. Starter non-waterfront homes in North Bay Road begin in the low $1 Million range, with standard lot sizes of approximately 7,000 Square Feet.
North Bay Road features easy access to Greater Miami's major freeways and entertainment venues, including: The New World (Frank Gehry) Performing Center just north of Lincoln Road in South Beach, The Bass Museum in Miami Beach, The Bal Harbour Shops, The Miami Beach Golf and Country Club, many restaurants, lounges and nightlife, as well as many of Miami Beach's Biscayne Bay and Oceanfront watersports.
