A freshly built Golden Beach mansion dubbed “The Ark” has been listed for $8.2 million, development group Miami Golden announced Thursday.

The three-story home, at 480 Ocean Boulevard, features sharp angles throughout and had its interior designed by architect Chad Oppenheim. Its most distinct feature is a 20-foot-high glass atrium covered in metal latticework that reaches out from the front of the home.

Developer Miami Golden is selling the fully furnished 9,000-square-foot residence, which has six bedrooms with two private balconies, seven bathrooms and imported Italian marble floors throughout.

Outside, the home has a lap pool and hot tub, an infinity-edge pool near the entrance and a garden designed by Andres Arcila of landscaping company Naturalficial.

“While large in size, The Ark has a very interesting sequence of captivating spaces, including the glass atrium with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean,” Golden’s Director of Operations Jacob Abramson said in a statement. “Its lush setting within the beautifully landscaped tropical gardens makes this spectacular home even more appealing. It’s like living in the sky – a place defined by light, reflections and open space.”

Oppenheim unveiled his design for another home in Golden Beach in February. Located at 699 Ocean Boulevard, the massive 23,000-square-foot mansion will have eight bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and an entire floor devoted to a spa and fitness center.

Golden Beach, a coveted community in northeast Miami-Dade County, has seen residents like former baseball superstar Sammy Sosa and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. — Sean Stewart-Muniz
