There are only 18 luxurious estates located in Journey’s End, an exclusive, guard-gated community located in Coral Gables, and one of them recently went up on the market. According to a recent article from The Real Deal, developer Henry Torres listed his 12,636-square-foot mansion for a mere $13.95 million. Torres is CEO of the Astor Companies, who is responsible for several projects, including InTown in the Little Havana area of Miami, Merrick Manor in Coral Gables and Nordica in the Roads are of Miami. The home is located at 9405 Old Cutler Lane.
The seven bedroom, seven bathroom estate was last purchased in July 2002 for $6.4 million, according to Miami-Dade property records. It sits upon a gated 2-acre lot at the end of a very desirable cul-de-sac. Built in 1999, the home was designed by architect Jeffrey Howard. Fronted by a canal, the estate also boasts a large grassy area, and a 60-foot banyan tree. According to Ben Moss, managing director of the sports and entertainment division of One Sotheby’s International Realty, “when you look at the property, you feel like you are in a resort, in terms of how manicured the residence is, with a babbling brook and a koi pond.” Other attractive features include a pool, a 10-person spa, a 28-foot ceiling in the foyer, media room, sun room, two wet bars, a lounge, an open kitchen/billiards room/family room and an elevator. There is also an expansive master suite with a sitting room and private balcony.
Residents of Journey’s End enjoy additional amenities such as 24 hour security, tennis courts, and a private marina. The exclusive community offers seclusion while still ideally located close to Miami’s best public and private schools and the attractive shopping, restaurants, and entertainment opportunities in South Miami and Coral Gables.
