A waterfront home on gated La Gorce Island in Miami Beach has been listed for $14.4 million, the Jills, with Coldwell Banker, announced Wednesday.

The 6,190-square-foot home, at 68 La Gorce Circle, has five bedrooms, six bathrooms, one half-bath and features Mediterranean-style architecture. The estate sits on a 19,095-square-foot lot, with 104 feet of frontage on Biscayne Bay.

Other features include marble floors, wood ceilings, a pool, gazebo, covered seating area, spa and dock.

According to Miami-Dade property records, the sellers are Jonathan and Alice Lord, who bought the home in September 2011 for $6.5 million. Lord is the chairman of Dexcom, a firm that manufactures and distributes glucose monitoring systems. He is also a director of several of medical technology companies, according to LinkedIn.

Records show the property was built in 1961, yet the estate underwent a total renovation that was completed in 2012, Jill Hertzberg of the Jills told The Real Deal.

“They gutted the kitchen, the bathrooms, reconfigured the home,” Hertzberg said. “They did everything possible.”

The one-story home has an interior courtyard, and the rooms all open out onto the courtyard, she said.

“It’s very, very gracious,” Hertzberg told TRD. “It’s very, very elegant and island-like, and it’s on La Gorce Island, one of the most beautiful places to live.”

The home’s interiors were designed by Jim Samson and Steve Oraham, and the landscaping was designed by Stanley Matz, she said.

Hertzberg and Eber were the agents on the highest sale ever recorded on La Gorce Island in June 2013: the Castello Del Sol, at 42 La Gorce Circle, which sold for $30 million. Since 2014, there have been eight closed sales on La Gorce Island, and five of them were listed by The Jills: 92 La Gorce Circle, 6650 Roxbury Lane, 17 La Gorce Circle, 34 La Gorce Circle and 6695 Roxbury Lane, with prices ranging from $2.99 million to $19.7 million. The Jills represented both sides of the transaction for three of those sales, Hertzberg said.
