Douglas Elliman’s Eloy Carmenate and Mick Duchon recently hosted brokers at a Miami Beach spec mansion complete with its own second-floor waterslide.

Developer Barry Brodsky put the home at 4555 Pine Tree Drive on the market in January at $34 million. The contemporary mansion spans 13,500 square feet and includes its own half-basketball court and about 100 feet of water frontage on Indian Creek.

Carmenate’s “Summer Solstice” party included a Ferrari test drive, drinks and appetizers.

The property’s massive concrete waterslide leads from the home’s roof to the waterfront pool. Brodsky previously told the Wall Street Journal he was aware that the slide could cause potential buyers to turn their noses up. His response: “who doesn’t like to go on a water slide?”

Paulo Bacchi and his design firm Artefacto staged the home with modern set pieces, which brings the price tag up to $35.3 million. – Katherine Kallergis and Sean Stewart-Muniz
