36 Indian Creek Island Road Sold for $7,050,000
A marvelous home on Indian Creek sold and closed this week for $7,050,000. The 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms, 8,510 square feet home located at 36 Indian Creek Island, sits on a lot measuring 54,844 square feet, with 137 linear feet of waterfront. Described as a magnificent French Neo-classical masterpiece, the home features manicured gardens, and looking glass pool. The interior features a graceful twin staircase, 26 ft high domed ceilings, a marble fireplace, carved mahogany built-ins, and hand-painted frescoes. At first glance, the immediate question that comes to mind with a home like this, is why so cheap? The answer: this wonderful home is not quite as pricey as most of the others on Indian Creek because it is located directly adjacent to the bridge that leads on to the island, and the property is not on the wide bay, i.e., it looks across the intracoastal waterway to far less expensive homes in Surfside.
12 Indian Creek Drive For Sale $32,000,000
Although the real estate market has slowed dramatically throughout the nation, as well as in the Miami area, it seems that some people are unaffected, especially in the high-end market. For example, in May 2006, an ultra-luxury home on exclusive Indian Creek, namely the property located at 12 Indian Creek Drive, sold for the hefty price of $18,650,000. Today, just more than a year and a half later, the same property is on the market for sale, but this time at a whopping price of $32,000,000. In 2004 and 2005, it was very common to see homes sell at inflated asking prices, but even as prices have come down substantially in Miami Beach, the most luxurious homes seem to hold value. The property mentioned above will most likely have to come down millions of dollars in price, in order to sell in the next year or two, unless, of course, the real estate market makes a magical turn around in a very short period of time. That would be very nice, but is highly unlikely in a market place which so heavily favors buyers.
Julio Iglesias Indian Creek Estate
World famous singer Julio Iglesias recently razed his Indian Creek Island Estate. The large 10,328 square foot home no longer met his family needs, according to the 64 year old singer.

Indian Creek Island is an exclusive Miami Beach community with its own private golf course. The front of every home in Indian Creek faces the golf course, and the back of many of the homes feature the wide bay, with amazing vistas, making this some of the most desirable real estate in all of Florida. Indian Creek is a city, with it’s own police force; Indian Creek Village was incorporated and the police department was created in 1939.
