Two Residences Bonded By History, Miami’s Arsht Estate is a magnificent residential compound nestled on over four acres directly on Biscayne Bay. The estate is comprised of two homes, each with sweeping views of Key Biscayne, Downtown Miami,
and the glistening waters of the Bay.
Villa Serena, a historically-designated home, was designed for William Jennings Bryan, who served as U.S. Secretary of State from 1913 to 1915, by renowned twentieth-century architect, August Geiger. The residence underwent a complete restoration
in 2012, making this historical treasure fit for the modern era.
ARSHT ESTATE MIAMI
The primary residence, Indian Spring, was constructed in 1999 and designed for entertaining on a grand scale. The formal living room, Grand Salon, dining room, and Garden Room, covered terrace, pool, and verdant lawn all give way to majestic vistas. It boasts a gourmet kitchen, gorgeous office, and rotunda offering 360-degree views of the surrounding cityscape, five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and four half-bathrooms in the main residence, in addition to a two-bedroom, two-bathroom guesthouse and gym/office above the six-car garage, plus an ample courtyard for receiving
guests and a lighted north-south-facing tennis court.
ARSHT ESTATE MIAMI
Villa Serena was built by William Jennings Bryan in 1913 when the stretch of waterfront land where the Arsht Estate rests was deemed “Millionaires’ Row,” and has been expertly restored to its former grandeur. Astonishing water views are captured from the living room, dining room, and sitting rooms downstairs, in addition to the primary bedroom, the office, and adjacent guestroom on the second floor. The office, marble-clad kitchen with high-end appliances, additional second-floor guestroom, and the primary suite’s lovely bathroom enjoy overlooking the property’s incomparable grounds including mature specimen trees such as kapok and banyan. Additionally, there is a two-bedroom carriage house atop a three-car garage, and an additional structure containing two full bathrooms, ideal for outdoor entertaining.
