Luxury Living: Living on Fisher Island
It is one of the most exclusive locations in South Florida, if not the world...few can visit Fisher Island much less afford to own a home there. But Belkys is taking us inside one in tonight's Luxury Living report.
(WSVN) -- My day started with a ferry ride to Fisher Island and my own dreams of Luxury Living.
"Well welcome to what I believe is the most apartment on Fisher Island.."
So this is how the other side lives.
Jill Eber of Coldwell Banker says, "Hi, how ya doing? Welcome to my house.."
Jill Eber showed us the apartment which is owned by an American business man and his wife.
Jill says, "They actually had fallen in love with a villa in Florence so they had it modelled after that villa so it's a whole Tuscan feel here.."
The couple actually had a European painter live in the apartment for a year before they moved in.
He covered it with murals,
Even painted ceilings to give it the look and feel the couple was after.
"The attention to detail has been incredible here."
It's a four bedroom four and half bath beauty.
With unobstructed ocean views at every turn.
To the left Government Cut -- to the right --
Jill says, "If you look down here you're looking right down at the beach at Fisher Island. This is called the residents beach here it's gorgeous.."
The view is breathtaking and the master suite took my breath away.
"That's the batrhoom...yes...."
What I've never seen a bathroom before? Really.
"What is all this stuff....ahhhhhh...hahahaha.."
"Ok, toilet who cares we've seen them all before..."
"It's like a separate bedroom.."
It's not. It's her closet...
Even a T-V in there.
"My closet is so not up to par...can I just tell you.."
The apartment is 5,600 square feet of Luxury Living on the inside..
But don't forget all the amenities that come with the Fisher Island lifestyle.
You can play tennis
You can play golf
Spend the day at the spa
Eat on one of the island's restaurants
This place even has it's own gourmet market and post office.
Jill says, "You really never have to leave the island."
Belkys replies, "Well that's good to know Jill, cuz I don't think I'll be leaving...I think I'm just gonna stay here.."
If you need me I'll you know where I'll be...
By the way, this condo is for sale for a mere 6.9 million dollars.
This Fisher Island condo, Villa Del Mare, is for sale.
