Mill Basin, that stronghold of wannabe Miami architecture, has bequeathed another interesting home to the market. The limestone, glass and bronze bay-front abode at 2387 56th Drive has a second-floor bamboo garden, a rooftop kitchen, and three bedrooms with full baths and balconies. The home with Manhattan skyline views is asking $8 million; a modest sum compared to its ostentatious neighbor that has, for the past two years, been asking in the neighborhood of $30 million.
UPDATE: A succession of in-the-know commenters claim that the $8 million dollar home was previously being marketed as part of the neighboring compound at 2458 National Drive. Considering that the bonkers abode recently cut its ask from $30 million to $17 million, this new addition to the Mill Basin market makes sense.
