$20 million home designed by Apple architect for sale in Miami Beach

If you’ve ever wanted to live inside an Apple store, a house designed by Peter Bohlin—whose firm, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, designed the tech temple’s trademark glass-cube storefronts—is a close approximation.

On Miami’s San Marino Island, a glass-clad home built by Bohlin in 2017 is listed with Corcoran for $19.9 million.

The owners of 21 E San Marino wanted the property to look “boat-like and have an on-the-water feel,” Corcoran realtor Julian Johnston told Mansion Global. They “gave it glass walls and put the deck at the side of the property rather than the rear in order to give the [primary] bedroom suite an uninterrupted view of the water.”

Bohlin called the 5,570-square-foot property “a reinterpretation of the regional postwar Miami modernist architecture movement.” It uses a minimalist palette of concrete, ipe wood, and white oak, with limestone flooring. Access to the outdoors is embedded in its DNA: Glass doors open to a lush garden and offer sea breezes to cool the living and sleeping areas, linked by an open staircase. The four-bedroom house also has a roof deck and a series of outdoor lounges as well as 100 feet of water frontage, including its own dock and jetty.

One thing you won’t find at an Apple store? The 69-foot elevated glass infinity pool, offering expansive views of Biscayne Bay from the front and a colonnaded walkway beneath.

Real Housewives’ Kyle Richards bumps up asking price for Mulholland Drive mansion

Reality TV queen Kyle Richards and her real-estate-magnate husband, Mauricio Umansky, are re-listing their former seven-bedroom mansion with a million-dollar-plus increase in the asking price.

Located on a cul-de-sac just off Mulholland Drive, the 6,229-square-foot property at 15475 Milldale Drive is nestled in the serene mountains between Bel Air and Sherman Oaks.

Richards and Umansky bought the 1957 white-picket-fencer in 2011 for $3.05 million, according to Dirt, and it was featured prominently on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. RHOBH “friend” Faye Resnick, a decorator, added luxury flourishes like crystal chandeliers, checkerboard marble flooring, and a paneled saloon that spills out to the lawn.

After the family decamped to Encino in 2017, the property was put on the market for $7 million, Dirt reported. After making it available for short-term rentals, they dropped the price before taking it off the market in 2018.

Last summer, at the height of the pandemic, it was re-listed for $5.95 million. Then it was taken off the market again and offered as a $20,000-per-month rental.

Now, Umansky and Richards have re-listed the property at a more optimistic $6.75 million. The property is listed with Umansky’s firm, The Agency, and is being handled by Richards and Umansky’s daughter, Alexia Umansky, and Farrah Brittany, Richards’s daughter from a previous union.

Anderson Cooper lists Gloria Vanderbilt’s final home

When Gloria Vanderbilt died in 2019, she left behind a 95-year legacy of glamour, fame, art, and philanthropy. She also left behind a two-bedroom apartment at 30 Beekman Place in Manhattan’s Turtle Bay.

It’s not where her newscaster son, Anderson Cooper, grew up, but the spacious George F. Pelham–designed building served as the heiress’s home—and canvas—for the last 23 years of her life.

Now, Cooper has put 30 Beekman Place, 2A, on the market for $1.125 million, with Ileen Schoenfeld and Aracely Moran of Brown Harris Stevens handling the listing. Vanderbilt was constantly remodeling and redecorating—the result being a home described by the New York Times as: “something out of The Arabian Nights, draped with swoops of orange silk, lacquered pink walls, mirrored halls, Russian icons, and chandeliers from which Christmas ornaments hang year round.”
