If you love city living but prefer a dwelling that feels like more of a “home” than a condo, you might want to consider the townhouses at the EPIC Residences in Downtown Miami. These units have large floor plans consisting of 1-3 bedrooms, two levels, soaring ceilings, and multiple balconies. Best yet, you have all the perks that come with living in a 5-star hotel, including 24 hour room service, separate pools for residents and hotel guests, a concierge, housekeeping, a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa, and the award-winning restaurant, Zuma, just to name a few.
The building was completed in 2008 and is located just over the bridge connecting Brickell and Downtown Miami, at 200 Biscayne Boulevard Way. It’s situated right on the water, and you can often find a few very impressive yachts docked directly out front. The building is pet-friendly for both owners and renters, and standard unit features include:
- “EPIC-Link,” a system allowing interactive communication to the hotel amenities and services, via an in-residence touch panel or PC from anywhere in the world
- State-of-the-art media panel, pre-wired for telephone system, HDTV, cable television, and internet
- Glasswall impact resistant floor to ceiling windows and sliding glass doors
- Dark oak wood Snaidero kitchen cabinets with stainless steel inserts
- Recessed lighting
- Bosch front loading washer and dryer
- Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer and ice maker
- Stainless steel Miele kitchen appliances
Of course, such luxury comes with a price…these townhouses are currently renting for close to $6,000 per month and selling for $1,000,000 and up. As an example, the unit I’ve featured in this post’s photos is #507, a 2 bedroom/2.5 bathroom townhouse rental listed with Miriam Poggio of One Sotheby’s International Realty for $5,900 per month. The unit has 1,574 square feet, includes 1 garage parking space, and comes furnished, as pictured. I recently had a chance to see this unit in person and it is gorgeous! Due to its location on the fifth floor and its view of the water, you almost feel like you’re on a cruise ship. It is truly the epitome of urban tranquility, a “home” in the middle of a bustling city.
There are only a couple of these units currently available to rent or buy, and they tend to go fast – contact me today for more information or to set up a private showing.
Check out some more photos of #507 below, as well as the full slideshow at the bottom of the post.
