A Waterfront Miami Manse on the Market, Decorated by Anne Hepfer

I have always been smitten with this cheerful pink and green guest house, decorated by Anne Hepfer and featured last year by Style at HomeLocated in Miami, it feels more like a Palm Beach playhouse, and I was thrilled to discover it is for sale! 

The guest house is part of the old Wolfson Estate on North Bay Road, Miami Beach, which was featured earlier this month by Curbed.  It also happens to be pop singer Ricky Martin's former home, which he sold to the current owners in 2005. They employed Hepfer to decorate the estate and guest house, as she had already decorated their primary residence in California.  Let's revisit the guest house and take a look at the stunning 1930s manse, as pictured in the real estate listing

The above and next few images are from Anne Hepfer's portfolio. The preppy 750-square-foot guest house was inspired by the chic bungalows at The Beverly Hills Hotel, Lilly Pulitzer party dresses, and Lacoste polos.

Hepfer modeled the pink barrel-back chairs after ones she grew up seeing in her grandmother's house in Florida. I love the tassel trim at the bottom!

Now let's take a look at the main house, a grand Spanish villa described extensively in the book Miami Beach: Blueprint of an Eden by Mitchell Wolfson Jr. and Michelle Oka Doner. 

A massive banyan tree on the property is more than 100 years old. 

The elaborate moldings, coffered ceilings, carved fireplaces, and other architectural elements of this home are simply exquisite. 

I wish there were additional pictures to better showcase the elegant main house decor, but it was never professionally photographed other than for the real estate listing.

The estate was completed in 1937 by architects Carlos Schoeppl and George Maguelo. It features 8,697 square feet, 6 bedrooms, and 7.5 baths. While it has received renovations and updates throughout the years, it retains practically all of its historic beauty and grandeur. It is currently listed for $21M. You can read more at Curbed

  5. That is such a fun and light hearted guest house! I've never even thought about adding tassel trim to a chair .... Maybe I need too :)


Thank you for your lovely comments. They absolutely make my day!
