Exquisitely built Art Deco Mediterranean 2-story pool home by famed architect Lawrence Murray Dixon. Murray
designed some of the most popular and famous hotels in Miami Beach. These include The Victor Hotel (1937),
The Raleigh Hotel (1940), The Marlin (1939), The Tides Hotel (1936), The Senator (1939), and The Ritz Plaza
Hotel (1940), to name a few. He was famous for his use of curved surfaces, which are evident throughout this
house (archways, elegantly curved ceiling blending into the staircase)
Walking in to the soothing foyer, you step down into the perfectly designed sunken living room with romantic
fireplace and hand-laid Italian tile. It took 3 men 2 months to complete just the fireplace alone, as each tile was
carefully chosen for its aesthetic look and fit (many were removed and replaced in the process in order to
eventually achieve just the right combination of uniqueness, style, and glamor) and is a true work of art.
Sitting in the roomy living room and looking out the front, uniquely-styled curved windows, you feel like you are
in a lush, exotic location. Surrounded by picturesque birds of paradise plants and imported Hawaiian
coconut trees; eat the coconuts that fall to the ground when in season - the pure white meat is prized by locals who stop by every season asking for a few coconuts to take home. The coconut water that springs from inside each delicate shell is a true connoisseur's delight. Come when the coconuts are delicious and ready to eat.
The masterfully designed entertainment room is lavishly surrounded by oversized windows which oversee the dramatically designed and luxuriously private pool area. Refreshing water gushes from the mouth of a hand crafted lion statue and is the first thing you notice when gently stepping outside into the private canopy of the pool area. The awe-inducing Lion Fountain sprouts delicious waterfalls on each side of it that, if you close your eyes while letting the water gently cascade onto your now-soothed head, and listen to the sweetly chirping birds and tropical parrots that live in the towering coconut trees at the head of the house, will convincingly make you feel as if you are the only person on this secluded tropical oasis.
You will want to spend most of your time in this private pool area surrounded by 12' tall ficus trees and wooden fence to assure your privacy. The secure and private design of the pool area will really allow you to enjoy this spectacular oasis in Miami Beach.
Liberal cancellation policy, low security deposit, walking distance to beach, synagogues, kosher restaurants, deli's. Glasnot kosher.

About Harry Johnson Jr
I was born in Miami, but grew up away from the beach. Nevertheless, I was a life-long beach and ocean fanatic and always made my way to the beach on a regular basis.
I went away for 21 years to work with NASA as an Aerospace Engineer. When my son was born 6 years ago I came back. I love being this close to the ocean and enjoying everything Miami Beach has to offer.
Harry Johnson Jr purchased this house in 2002
Why Harry Johnson Jr chose Mid Beach
I grew up in Miami, but have always had an affinity to the ocean. 8 years ago we purchased this home, fully expecting to live here for the rest of our lives. My son was born here, so it holds a special place for me. The memories are priceless.
What attracted us to this home was the peacefulness of the neighborhood, as well as the proximity to the ocean. The home has a certain calm associated with it, and the privacy of the pool area, being surrounded by lush vegetation, was certainly a key factor in us buying the home.
