The Neighborhood of Biscayne Point
Biscayne Point is an island neighborhood inside North Beach, between Normandy Isles and Indian Creek. Composed of three small islands, it is accessible from 77th Street and from 85th Street by car and a pedestrian bridge off 80th Street. Entirely residential, you’ll find single-family homes built in various styles of architecture, including Mediterranean Revival, Moderne, Masonry Vernacular and MiMo (Miami Moderne). There are more waterfront homes in Biscayne Point than anywhere else in North Beach – this gated community is the epitome of private, waterfront living. A beautiful, foliaged backdrop to a great Miami life.
Here are just a few things that make the Biscayne Point neighborhood stand out:
The Bay: Waterfront communities in Miami have one thing in common – spectacular mornings. On Biscayne Point, you’ll also have beautiful views of the ocean and the neighboring islands. If you’re a boat enthusiast, Biscayne Point is exceptionally attractive. Most waterfront homes come with a slip that can accommodate large boats – you can wake up, get on your boat, and head out to sea.
Gated Security: The guardhouses are manned (or wo-manned) 24/7, providing residents with an extra layer of security and promoting the quiet and reclusive ambience of the neighborhood.
The Parks: Biscayne Point has two wonderful green spaces – Stillwater Park and Crespi Park. Shaded play areas, fitness zones, basketball courts, and gazebos make these parks great places to meet and enjoy some time with your neighbors, let the kids loose or jump into a basketball game. Can you BBQ? Yes you can.
The Beach: You are literally a few blocks from the beach – go take a morning run on the sand or just sit and listen to the rhythm of the ocean to wind down. However you want to enjoy the beach is fine by us – but just do it! It’s a Miami mandate.
Exclusivity: As a gated community in a secluded part of Miami Beach, it does make this special neighborhood pretty exclusive. The life you’ll be living here is one not many will experience. You’ll be providing a life you and your family will forever appreciate, surrounded by the ocean and good people.
