Drive through the gates of 2345 Lake Avenue in Miami's prestigious guarded gate community, Sunset Island III, and you'll immediately be enchanted. This 19,281-square-foot beachfront mansion previously belonged to former pro tennis player, Anna Kournikova, and with 8 bedrooms and 8 baths, it's hard to wonder why she (or anyone) would ever want to leave.
Now listed under ’s Senior Vice President, Jorge Uribe, on the market for $14.25 million, this waterfront estate is officially one of my favorite celebrity homes. With a tropical-paradise feel that tops former athlete Derek Jeter's New York castle — that's on the market for around the same price — in size and aesthetic (sorry, Jete, I love you), I am dying to move in. Here are some of the best features of the southern Florida home:
My favorite thing about the outside of this home is all of the lush greenery.
Is it not the most peaceful oasis?
Space and natural lighting are definitely not a problem in this bright, airy mansion.
The exposed beams and archways really draw your eye up.
Waking up to this could make anyone a morning person.
You know what they say, if you have the space in your bathroom, add a sofa.
My only Q is, where's the tennis court?
It has the perfect sun-to-shade ratio, too. There's a place for everyone to relax and enjoy.
Plus, look at all of the porches overlooking the backyard.
This is truly Miami living at its finest.
It must be good to be Anna K.
