While neighborhoods in Silicon Valley and New York City are known for their high-priced real estate and wealthy residents, a Bloomberg analysis of IRS data found that tiny — and tony — Fisher Island off the coast of Miami is the richest Zip code in the country with an average household income of $2.5 million.
The members-only island, accessible only by yacht or private ferry, has reportedly attracted celebrity owners such as Oprah Winfrey, Boris Becker and Karolina Kurkova. Property owners pay $250,000 in an equity membership fee to gain access to amenities such as golf, tennis, dining options, a private beach, a marina, a fitness center and a spa.
Among the few properties available on the island is a $14 million two-level home created from two combined condo units with a total of five bedrooms and seven bathrooms. The ground floor terrace provides private beach access, while the upper level terrace also faces the ocean.
The 6,298-square-foot home includes a large living room on the upper level, with a wall of antique shelving featuring intricate hand-carving from India. The rest of the condo includes features such as travertine floors, marble walls and a saltwater fish tank in the family room. The master bedroom is on the ground floor near the family room and a den, along with two more bedrooms. The kitchen, staff rooms and guest bedrooms are upstairs.
