One of the biggest producers in Hollywood, Jerry Bruckheimer, has listed his ultra-modern Miami penthouse for a cool $16.5 million.
The Hollywood hit-maker has been behind movies like Top Gun, Crimson Tide, Pearl Harbour and Beverly Hills Cop and, in July 2003, was honoured by Variety as the the first producer in Hollywood history to produce the top two highest-grossing films of a single weekend, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl and Bad Boys II.

His spectacular Miami penthouse is centrally located at Il Villaggio in the heart of Miami Beach, and combines European chic with serious Miami cool.
World famous Parisian designer Andrée Putman has created this stunning 6,000 sq ft showplace, described as ‘one of the most exciting penthouses in Miami’. The custom interior includes three bedrooms, a grand living room, a home office, and an incredible bar with bespoke details.
The whole apartment is sleek and chic, boasting a Miami-appropriate neutral color palette of greys and whites for effortless elegance.
The kitchen boasts Tadelakt-style grey cabinets paired with white and beachy bleached wood stools.
When you’re ready to put your feet up in the living room, you can soak in magnificent views over Miami Beach below, while the formal reception boasts a stylish curved seating arrangement with statement art adorning the walls.
The master bedroom is a masterclass in creating a chic yet tranquil sanctuary to retreat too. The bed is zoned off with floaty white drapes, while the plush chaise longue is the perfect position for reading and relaxing while drinking in that beach backdrop.
A bespoke steel staircase leads up to the impressive rooftop terrace, which provides a sprawling 8,000 square feet of space, with a private plunge pool, sun deck and BBQ area – perfect for entertaining or sunset cocktails.
