Coral Gables, FL, is a charming town that lies just outside Miami‘s bustling beaches. It’s close to the hustle and bustle but far enough away to afford a little privacy. Naturally, it’s a prime location for celebrity residents.
Supermodel and businesswoman Elle Macpherson recently joined this exclusive group with the purchase of a stunning 9,000-square-foot estate for $8.1 million. The home was designed by architect Chad Oppenheim, who’s been prolific in the Miami area.
The ultramodern home was previously owned by Eric Malka, co-author of “The Art of Shaving.” It has seven bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, and features crisp lines, bright white finishes, and incredible natural light. Stunning white and gray marble adorn the countertops of the kitchen, which is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances and sleek cabinetry.
The beautiful marble is also used in the bathroom walls and countertops.The master bath includes a soaking tub, and massive walk-in closets abound (ideal for the supermodel’s clothes, shoes, handbags, and accessories).
With 1.71 acres of well-manicured grounds designed by Swiss landscape architect Enzo Enea and a sparkling saltwater pool, the property’s exterior matches the beauty of its interior. Located in a gated community, the home comes with access to tennis courts and a boat mooring.
With a home that matches her beauty in a state that’s known for the most stunning of sunsets, the five-time Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover girl should feel right at home in Coral Gables.
