With a $65 million asking price, a Coconut Grove mansion is the most expensive home on the market in Miami-Dade County.

The owner of La Brisa, a nine-bedroom, nearly 14,000-square-foot estate on 6.9 waterfront acres, brought in William P.D. Pierce of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate to market the property, according to the firm’s written announcement. The gated and Mediterranean-style La Brisa was originally constructed during the 1920s and recently went through a restoration. The mansion sits atop an ancient coral reef about 23 feet above sea level.

Features include 3,338 square feet of outdoor living space with several balconies and covered porches and a private port that can accommodate a 70-foot yacht.

La Brisa’s history dates back to 1886, when the land was deeded to children’s novelist Kirk Munroe.

“This is an extremely rare opportunity to purchase not just part of Miami’s colorful history, but to own [a] spectacular Hammock that rivals a private reserve in the heart of Miami’s famed Coconut Grove neighborhood,” said Pierce, who is also marketing a Hillsboro Beach mansion for $139 million. That listing is believed to be the most expensive in the U.S. — Eric Kalis
