One of the most iconic homes in Miami has just hit the market. Aptly named the “Rockhouse”, 4080 Douglas Road is a Bali-inspired retreat designed by award-winning architect Max Strang. As you enter the gates of this one acre property in South Coconut Grove you feel as if you have been whisked away to a tropical oasis with 100 year old oak trees, exotic palms and fruit trees. The sophisticated modern architecture seamlessly blends the outdoor and indoor spaces. White paneled walls compliment the natural concrete floors. Recycled materials were used throughout the design including Dade County pine columns from a cottage that previously existed on the site, as well as coral rock that was excavated from the home’s foundation.
One of my favorite features of the home is the 3,500 square foot pavillion located on the second floor which is fully equipped with an outdoor kitchen and grill. Weathered steel beams and Ipe wood add to the rustic charm of the terrace.
The unique design of the “Rockhouse” has caught the eye of numerous publications, news outlets and location scouts. Most notably, the home was cast as a drug lord’s jungle lair in the 2006 Miami Vice movie. It has also been featured in The Wall Street Journal, HGTV, Miami Modern Luxury, The Robb Report, Playboy and in USA Network’s Burn Notice.
