Potamkin  11 Casuarina Concourse, Coral Gables, FL 33143 Gables Estates

 As Paris Hilton would say: “That’s hot!”  This is one of the most fantastic pieces of property south of Palm Beach.

The main residence is over 20,000 sf, and is sited on over 3.6 acres of prime Gables Estates real estate.  The unique location of the property provides approximately 800 linear foot of waterfront.

The property is assessed by the county for $17,588,023*.  The current taxes on the property are $344,497,89.  From a 2006 Miami New Times article

Alan Potamkin, a high-profile developer from Coral Gables, paid a whopping $348,102 in property taxes in 2006. Potamkin’s kingly homestead has a current market value of $21 million, more than ten times what the auto/real estate magnate purchased the four-bedroom property for in 1987.
