The Temple House — a former synagogue that is now considered the largest single-family home in South Beach — is on the market again. Susan Gale of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing for $19.9 million.

The 13,111-square-foot space at 1415 Euclid Avenue has been the site of a One Direction video, a Kardashian party and events held by Jennifer Lopez, JayZ and other celebrities. It has also held corporate events for NetJets, Absolute Vodka, Microsoft and Colgate, according to its website.

“It’s an iconic property,” Gale, who specializes in “unique, trophy” offerings, told The Real Deal. “What is different about this property is it serves many purposes. It is the largest single-family residence in South Beach, if someone wants it as a private urban residence. It also has a bed-and breakfast license. And it is a world-class, licensed event space.”

The two-story, landmark Art Deco property on a double corner lot was designed as a temple in 1935 by architect L. Murray Dixon, whose other projects include high-profile South Beach hotels such as The Tides, Victor, Raleigh, Marlin, Tudor and Ritz Plaza.

The Temple House’s current owner is Daniel Davidson, who bought the property in March 2003 for $1.125 million, according to Miami-Dade property records. The home has been on and off the market over the years, Gale said.

Its features include a soundproof, 6,000-square-foot great room with 25-foot-high ceilings and mezzanine, a 2,500-square-foot private catering space and a 2,900-square-foot sundeck with pool and waterfall.  The five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom mansion also has an elevator and two-car garage.
