Indian Creek: An Overview

Photo Indian Creek Miami Beach islands golf course waterfront homes

Location
Indian Creek is a man-made island bordered by Biscayne Bay to the west, Indian Lake to the north, and Indian Creek to the east and south. It is surrounded by the neighborhoods of Miami Beach, North Miami, Surfside, and Bay Harbor Islands.

The island covers 300 acres and its population is small with there being only around 80 residents living here. It has 41 waterfront luxury properties so as you can imagine, a property rarely comes up for sale here.

A brief history
The island was created in the 1900s as a result of the excavation of Biscayne Bay’s drainage. It wasn’t until 1928 that this uninhabited island was bought and turned into a country club with several residential lots. Upon incorporation by Florida in 1939, the island quickly became a spot where the well-heeled of Miami would spend their vacation. A little later, the island would become a popular residential area for people far and wide.

Climate
Living in Indian Creek means basking in sunshine for almost the entirety of the year. Like most of Florida, the island has warm and humid summers with mild and wet winters. Indian Creek’s warmest (coldest) month is August, with an average temperature of 83 degrees. January is the coldest month with an average temperature of 68 degrees.

Indian Creek Homes for Sale

Estate Living

If you are looking for extraordinary homes for sale, Indian Creek, FL, has properties that will impress even the most discerning buyer. The houses are in a league of their own. As you would expect, as well as fantastic properties, the area is as secure as any residential area, and of course, has first-rate amenities.

Most homes here have enough bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate even the largest families and any number of guests you invite. It’s not uncommon that homes here will have 10 or more bedrooms. With private theaters, gyms, wine cellars, and chef-approved kitchens, there is everything needed within the home complex to experience the greatest luxury and comfort anywhere in the world.

That being said, properties here are not outlandish or ostentatious. There is an undeniable sense of confident understatement even in the midst of what is quite obviously a very special and extremely affluent community.

Architectural styles

No expense has been spared to make the homes in Indian Creek as high-end and luxurious as possible. The architectural styles in Indian Creek vary, but every home has a waterfront edge and is designed to make the most out of the warm weather and the panoramic waterfront views.

Tuscan-style mansions feature nature-inspired elements that more than hint at Old-World charm. The island’s palm trees provide the perfect backdrop for Mediterranean homes that have airy indoor-outdoor living spaces. With its fluted Greek columns and symmetrical structures, Regency homes add class and elegance to the island’s waterfront. Those who favor intricate sculptures and ornate arches will be enthralled with Indian Creek’s Italian-style properties.

While there is much to enjoy indoors, Indian Creek properties have almost palatial outdoor spaces. Most have sprawling pools that mirror the turquoise waters of Biscayne Bay. There are outdoor kitchens, poolside cabanas, and even rooftop jacuzzis. Multi-million yachts grace the perimeter of the island as each property has its own direct access to the bay through private docks.

Privacy and security

Indian Creek is a small island that’s big on privacy. It is connected to Surfside only through a bridge with a police station and checkpoint. Security monitors and controls entry at the bridge checkpoints, allowing entry to residents and authorized persons only. This luxury island also has its own private security and a 24-hour marine patrol. This covers all entry paths to the island and ensures complete security on it.

Indian Creek Country Club

The heart of this island is the Indian Creek Country Club, which along with the 18-hole golf course, was built in the 1930s before any houses stood on the island. The Indian Creek Country Club course was designed by William S. Flynn and rivals the finest golf courses in the U.S. Only members have access to the course and those who are not members need to be invited first. Note that living on the island does not immediately equate to having a membership, which will have to be secured.

Close up golf ball on green grass

In 2022, a renovation headed by Architect Andrew Green added modern features and aesthetic touches. For a more refined golfing experience, the entire course was meticulously re-grassed, two large ponds were added, the bunkers were reshaped, and more tees were created. The installation of these modern systems elevated the playing experience to meet new elite standards.

Those who want to experience other membership perks can enjoy the many amenities at the country club. There, you can relax with a private massage or unwind in the steam room after working out at the fitness center or after practicing your backhand at the tennis court. Private events and lavish parties can also be held at the clubhouse restaurant.

Ownership of a property in Indian Creek

It’s not often that you see homes for sale in Indian Creek, FL. The market has a price range of around $6M at the lowest end to well above $70M at the upper end. Due to the desire or need for discretion properties here are sometimes not even listed, and are sold by word of mouth through a select group of real estate agents.

It is interesting to note that ownership of these homes is often unknown as ownership may be facilitated by means such as trusts or Limited Liability Company (LLC). This can shield homeowners here from liabilities and certain taxes such as inheritance dues. Homeowners here have access to resources and financial services that allow for discretion and privacy.

Also, note that Florida is a no-income tax state. This has undoubtedly been a key factor in the wealthy buying a home in Indian Creek. Homeowners here can fully receive 100% of their personal income without a cent being taken in tax. Those who have the means to buy property in Indian Creek almost certainly have substantial personal income and the benefits they receive from this tax break are enormous. So, while the homes are some of the most expensive in the world, you get considerable returns just by being in Florida.
