The Ark at 480 Ocean Boulevard in Golden Beach, Florida looks so much like a modern art museum that it seems like a waste for anyone who isn’t an art collector to move in. Newly completed, the three-level fully-furnished home is selling for $8.2 million through private development group Miami Golden LLC. It boasts 9,000 square feet of interior living space and 3,000sqft of ocean-view terraces, as well as a lap pool and cabana, a two-car garage, and an elevator.

"Dramatic and contemporary, The Ark offers soaring spaces that are uniquely designed for entertaining, hosting elegant parties or for showcasing a collection of fine art. At the same time, it has the features and comforts of an intimate family home," says Jacob Abramson, Director of Operations for Miami Golden. "The home is located in the elegant community of Golden Beach, which has become the neighborhood of choice for people seeking a peaceful oasis within easy reach of Miami’s urban lifestyle. This vibrant area is also home to a variety of celebrities including Bruce Weber, Tommy Hilfiger, Eric Clapton, Bill Gates, Paul Newman, and recently Ricky Martin."

The Ark’s interior was designed by Chad Oppenheim of OPPENHEIM Architecture + Design (with the help of Meridiani furnishings and G2J Design) and features imported Italian marble floors. There are six en-suite bedrooms (two with private balconies) and seven full bathrooms. The main floor has a 20-foot-high glass atrium with a private elevator, a family room, formal dining room, a living room with an automated theater projection screen, and a showcase gallery space to display artworks. Full of brands like Sub-Zero and Wolf, the Italian kitchen has a clean look that is achieved by white quartz countertops.

The third level offers an indoor-outdoor master suite with its own spacious ocean-view rooftop terrace, as well as a “his-and-her bathroom [with] custom Italian closets, Duravit fixtures, toilets, bidets, soak tubs, a steam shower, Jacuzzi, and a chromotherapy bath tub.”

Outside you will find the pool cabana, lap pool, hot tub, sun deck, a garden, and an infinity-edge pond utilizing river rock.
