A custom-built villa just west of Gables Estates and Cocoplum in Miami-Dade has been re-listed for $9.995 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The 10,730-square-foot mansion at 4800 Pine Drive features a koi pond, waterfall and two-story pool house, listing agent Barbara Haley told TRD. Haley, of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, said the 1-acre property is part of the owners’ “timeless love story.”

Villa Dwora, named after owner Dora Topp, is centered around a “magical, palatial Banyan tree,” Haley said. It was built in 2009 and includes nine bedrooms, nine bathrooms and three half bathrooms, as well as an elevator, dual dining rooms and a gym. The listing price dropped from $11.5 million last week.

Dora and David Topp paid $2.1 million for the property in 2008, Miami-Dade County records show. Before that, it sold for $240,000 in 1980.

Haley, who is listing the estate along with Sladja Stantic of the ONE Sotheby’s DS Team, said that foreign buyers, including Europeans, have looked at the property because it has a Mediterranean feel.

“At this point, they’re [the owners are] just ready to move on for the next person to experience the same love for the property,” she told TRD.

    SO glad I came across this post because homes like these give me inspiration for my own home DIY projects. I just moved to Boca and am currently in the process of redoing the interior of my home. A great way I’ve gained inspiration for these projects is by looking for articles that list pictures of homes like these.

    Or my favorite way has been to go on and look at the homes from the Hamptons and Miami as those are always my favorite to go through!
