Architecture, Master Planning
Miami Beach, Florida, USA
A resplendent ancestral villa, grandiose in style and scale, the Fisher Estate is the former home of Miami’s most esteemed founding father, visionary developer and titan of industry Carl G. Fisher (1874–1939), the Jazz Age mogul who transformed a forgotten stretch of Florida coastline into a dazzling winter playground and year-round enclave for the affluent and social elite.
Inspired by the stately mansions of Palm Beach and the pristine, golden villas of Rome, Fisher lived in this remarkable Mediterranean Revival at the height of his notoriety and net worth, an estimated $100 million the year he moved in. Completed in 1927, a true testament to that bygone era’s standard of excellence and architectural pride. While still a symphony of 20s splendor, the estate has been meticulously updated to meet every possible modern need.
The estate’s vast and airy interior totals some 21,000 stunning square feet, heightened by original and artful aesthetics. Most of these intricate details, like the coffered ceilings, carved stone mantelpieces, and rich oak floors have been painstakingly maintained and restored.
Among the house’s most striking features is an 85-foot observation tower offering views of the ocean, the Miami skyline, and Biscayne Bay. The tower lends the estate an iconic status from every vantage point on the coast.
