Retired radio host Tom Joyner sold his beachfront villa for $19 million. Dina Goldentayer of Douglas Elliman represented both sides of the transaction. The home at 469 Ocean Blvd in Golden Beach is located on a 4-block stretch of Golden Beach and features a glass-encased tub in the master bath, a garage-turned boxing ring and an art gallery.
The three-and-a-half bath home spans 7,340 square feet of space and underwent a $7.5 million renovation from designer Deborah Wecselman of Wecselman Design, architect Wesley Kean of KoDA, contractor Larqcon Group, and landscape architecture firm Enea. The staircase within the foyer acts as an art gallery with pieces from Picasso, Robert Pruitt, Allora & Calzadilla, and Ernie Barnes; a custom Bocci pendant light hangs from the ceiling.
The entire third floor houses the main bedroom with a bathroom with a glass-encased RiFRA tub in the center of the room, plus a large open closet boasts dark wood features and has plenty of space to store sneakers and apparel. The home features glamorous oceanfront living lounges, an office, plus views of the ocean from nearly every room. It also has a seaside swimming pool with spacious verandas, a summer kitchen and a beachside louvered cabana.
Golden Beach is the only private community with homes on the sand in South Florida. The ultra-exclusive gated community has its own police force, private beach with pavilion and beachside service, tennis courts, basketball court, multiple parks and a kids playground.
