Coral Gables’ $45M El Palmar Is This Week’s Most Expensive New Listing

A storybook setting is the site of this week’s most expensive new listing on®. Located in Coral Gables, FL, the plantation-style contemporary just came on the market for $45 million.

Built in 2006, the 17,000-square-foot waterfront property on 3.35 acres is known as El Palmar.

The “truly unique residence” is located “in the heart of Coral Gables on one of its largest waterfront properties,” the listing notes. The owners picked up the land in 2001 for just $4.25 million, according to property records. While they apparently invested millions in the new build, the list price will surely compensate them well.

The home has nine bedrooms, 11.5 baths, an open family room, library, kitchen, pub-style bar, living room with fireplace, 2,000-bottle wine cellar, private service wing, and elevator.

There’s a guesthouse, summer kitchen, pool, and boathouse out back. The property comes with 35 feet of water frontage and an inlet for watercrafts.
