Jerry Bruckheimer is a film and television producer who was born in Michigan on September 21, 1943. He began his career in 1972 and has since worked in multiple genres. He is one of the most successful producers currently working in the entertainment industry.

In addition to his career as a producer, Bruckheimer is also a director at ZeniMax Media. Outside of the entertainment industry, he is a co-founder and co-majority owner of the Seattle Kraken expansion team of the National Hockey League. Due to a successful career that spans six decades, Bruckheimer’s net worth is now $1 billion, says Celebrity Net Worth. His wealth means that he can afford to live in amazing properties of his choice. With his second wife, bestselling novelist Linda Bruckheimer, he lives on a farm in Bloomfield, Kentucky. The couple has a second farm in Ojai, California, and a luxurious $23 million property in Beverley Hills. They also have a penthouse apartment in Miami, and they have now put the property on the market for $16.5 million. So, let’s take a closer look at the expansive penthouse in Miami that the Bruckheimers have put on the market.
An Overview of the Miami Penthouse
In 2005, Jerry and Linda Bruckheimer bought two neighboring units in a luxurious Miami apartment block. The two separate transactions were worth a combined $12.7 million. They then had the two apartments made into one, so the space on offer is now approximately 6,000-square-feet. The expansive apartment then went a complete overhaul, as the Bruckheimers hired the late Parisian interior designer Andree Putnam to redesign the pad. It is now a sophisticated and contemporary space of the highest standard. Jerry Bruckheimer and his wife have now listed the Miami penthouse for $16.5 million. If the property goes for the asking price, the Bruckheimers stand to make a $3.8 million profit on their initial purchase price. Reports suggest that the couple has decided to sell the property simply because they do not spend that much time there.
A Closer Look at the Property’s Interior
A theme that runs throughout the property is curved lines. The theme is evident as soon as you step into the entrance gallery, which has a curved linear shape and showcases a curved staircase. Draped fabric is all that separates the entrance gallery from the main living space, which incorporates an open-plan living and dining room. In the main living area, the curved theme continues in the choice of furniture. The two large settees and two armchairs all boast curved backs, and the dining table is circular. While the seating is arranged in a central position in the open-plan area, the dining suite is set against floor-to-ceiling windows, so diners can enjoy the views. Another area of the open-plan living space is a small reading nook, which is set in a corner between the living and dining spaces. It comprises a table and chair, a floor-to-ceiling inset bookcase, and a full-length window. The entire living space is painted a light gray, and there are recessed spotlights.
The kitchen is separated from the main living space by a breakfast bar with three stools. There is gray slate-effect cabinetry with an in-built double oven, a double sink, and white countertops. An island to the center of the kitchen houses the hob and under-counter storage. Above the island, there is a large extractor unit suspended from the ceiling. Opposite the kitchen, there is an additional informal dining space with white and chrome chairs and an unusual chrome dining table with an illuminated white surface. Behind the informal dining space, there is an alcove with a sink that is currently used as a bar area. A second seating area is currently used as a television room, as the furniture is arranged around an inset flat-screen television on the main wall. The second seating area is another room that offers impressive views of the beach, ocean, and skyline, as it has floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors that lead out onto a balcony.
A further room in the penthouse is the home office. It is a large room that easily accommodates two desks and chairs. Again, there are floor-to-ceiling sliding doors leading to a balcony and spectacular views of the Miami coastline. There are three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms in the penthouse. The most impressive of the bedrooms is the master suite, as the master bedroom has floor-to-ceiling windows that offer spectacular views of the Miami coastline. In the master bathroom, the views are equally as amazing, as there are also full-length windows in this room. A further room in the master suite is the deluxe dressing area, which offers plenty of storage for the homeowners’ clothes. From the dressing room, there is a bespoke corkscrew staircase that leads to a private terrace on the roof, says Dirt.com.
The Property’s Exterior
While many apartments have little or no outdoor space, or there is a communal area shared with the other apartment owners, the Bruckheimer’s are fortunate enough to have plenty of outdoor space at their penthouse apartment. The property boasts more than 8,000-square-feet of outdoor space, so the focus is on an outdoor lifestyle. Outside, there are various balconies, where the homeowner can enjoy views of the beach and ocean. There are also terraced areas that are ideal for relaxing or alfresco dining. Furthermore, there is a rooftop plunge pool and an outdoor barbecue area. Therefore, the homeowner has plenty of options for leisure and entertainment in the outdoor space.
