Working from home can be stressful, even if you live in on the beach in Miami. This is possibly why the owners of a South Beach condo which just listed for $16.25 million installed a glass wine vault enclosing a hidden home office. That’s a genius WFH hack, and one that will prevent you ever going back to work in a real office that’s not encased in wine.
So if wine-adjacent work is your life plan, this is the apartment for you. The duplex apartment takes up the first and second floors of Ocean House, a white, low-rise, classic Miami condo building built in 2009, sandwiched delectably between the restaurants of Ocean Drive and the white sands of South Beach.
Inside, the condo has a light, bright and spacious feel, with a central double-height living area that leads out onto a first floor terrace and the building’s communal pool, which in turn is separated from the beach only by a strip of greenery. The living area is surrounded by glass walls on one side, and an open second-floor landing on three sides, accessed by a glass staircase.
On one side is an open-plan breakfast room, while on the other is that home office, encased in an oval-shaped glass wine vault. Upstairs is another glass-walled room, this time in the form of a conventional rectangle, housing the kitchen. The walls can switch to opaque privacy glass should you wish to conceal your culinary efforts.
The 6,240-square-foot home also contains four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a home movie theater, a dining room leading out onto a second-floor terrace, a home bar, brightly colored bathrooms, large walk-in closets and miles of fitted cabinets. Screens are in almost every room, including the first-floor terrace.
Building amenities include the beachside pool deck with plentiful sun-loungers and private cabanas, as well as a billiards room with a bar, an outdoor kitchen, screening room, private beauty salon, business center, gym and sauna. Chad Carroll with the Carroll Group at Compass holds the listing.
