Just under a year after his initial announcement, Real Estate developer, philanthropist and five time, best selling author Frank McKinney has revealed his latest spec project, a 4,087 square-foot, two-story, three-bedroom, four-bathroom ultra-modern spec home, dubbed the “Micro Mansion.”
The property which exudes the unique artistry and vivid imagination of McKinney’s signature style features a rare sea-glass kitchen, illuminated living reef aquarium wall, sun deck floating between two pools, a 650 square-foot master bedroom suite including a second floor outdoor master glass shower with trees reaching into it, and a dining table crafted from a single piece of driftwood, among other extraordinary artistic features.
“The luxury real estate market is set to experience a tectonic shift. To meet this evolution in demand, I conceived the prototype for the Micro Mansion and quickly moved forward, meticulously overseeing every square inch of its design,” said McKinney. “I have no doubt we’ll sell at or above asking price so I’ve already bought oceanfront land and have begun plans to build the next masterpiece. My first Micro Mansion is sure to send chills down the spine of the luxury real estate market.”
“I’ve dominated the high-end speculative real estate marketplace for over 25 years and I’ve witnessed the evolution of the high-end buyer,” said McKinney. “It’s been dramatic. They desire the artistry, luxury, quality and leading edge technology, yet now want it in a much smaller and more manageable home. My exclusive Micro Mansions will have the $4,000 per square foot finishes, yet will need only 4,000 square feet, not 40,000, to showcase the artistry that distinguishes these homes from all others.”
McKinney believes that Buyer’s in today’s luxury real estate market prefer custom design features and finishes, combined with comfort and ease of maintenance, over excessively large mega-mansions which require a fulltime staff – and hopes this new buyer trend will translate into a sale of this one of a kind property. “Sophisticated buyers are inspired by great ideas,” said McKinney. “High net worth individuals with multiple homes are intrigued by the idea of a simplified, yet spectacular and privileged life. I believe the time has come for my Micro Mansion to be a force in the luxury real estate market.”
The property is located at 19 Tropical Drive, Ocean Ridge, Florida and is listed with Pascal Liguori of Premier Estate Properties for $3.9 Million
