One of Miami’s most prolific condo developers, billionaire Jorge Perez, has listed his private home in the exclusive community of Coconut Grove, Florida for $ 33 million. Perez is CEO of Related Group, a real estate development company he founded in 1979 that is said to have overseen the development of at least 80,000 condos, most of which are in the Miami area, which earned Perez to be nicknamed the “Condo King” of Miami. The Related Group has grown to have offices in around half a dozen countries around the world.
Perez purchased the nearly one acre lot in 1994 for $ 1.45 million to build this 10,000 square foot Mediterranean-style villa. With only around 10 homes in the gated community, “Villa Cristina” is a three-level, six-bed, 7-bath property with “views from every room,” as the listing describes.
“The house is inviting and ideal for entertaining guests with its expansive gardens, stunning water views, private cove and many outdoor luxuries,” said listing agent Jill Hertzberg. “The property is also suitable for boating enthusiasts as it provides access to Biscayne Bay without any bridges.” Hertzberg co-listed the property with Jill Eber, both of the Jills Zeder group affiliated with Coldwell Banker.
The property includes 482 feet of waterfront land plus a private cove, with a dock. Outside, the landscaped gardens include a sculpture garden, spa, private lounge and infinity pool.
Inside there is a wood-paneled library, an art gallery that doubles as an entertainment space, several bedrooms with private balconies, and an expansive living room with fireplace.
The ceilings of the dining room can accommodate hanging sculptures.

The nearly one acre lot offers seclusion and privacy while having plenty of outdoor space.
The house also includes staff quarters, a gym, an elevator and a home office. For more information, visit the Jills Zeder group list page.
