Miami, FL, April 12, 2012 --( Miami-based Cervera Real Estate, Inc. has been appointed the exclusive sales and marketing broker for Ocean House, a luxury beachfront property in South Beach’s trendy South of Fifth neighborhood. In addition, DYL Group will serve as the project’s consulting developer.

iStar Financial has planned a multi-million dollar redesign of the interiors and common areas incorporating protected structures with modern and sophisticated design elements. Featuring fewer than 30 private residences within two historic towers and a newly constructed seven-story condo, Ocean House captures intimate, resort-like living, and capitalizes on its unparalleled location with 18 beachfront homes, including several penthouses exceeding 6,000-square-feet.

Cervera’s market knowledge and keen awareness of tastes and trends are integral to our plans for the reposition and launch of this one-of-a-kind South Beach property,” said Anthony Burns, senior vice president of iStar Financial, the parent company of iStar Residential. “Furthermore, DYL Group’s expertise in project development, management and real estate makes a perfect fit to bring the vision to life.”

“Ocean House’s exclusivity is unparalleled in today’s market place,” said Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, Managing Partner of Cervera Real Estate. “The limited availability of these ultra-private residences, whose South of Fifth beachfront location offers a backyard oasis of sand and ocean at sunrise, and front row seats to South Beach’s enchanting nightlife at sunset, makes Ocean House one of the world’s most desirable addresses.”

“DYL’s long history of transforming existing properties into state-of-the-art luxury destinations makes it an obvious choice to create a truly unforgettable experience at Ocean House,” says DYL Group Founder, Principal and CEO John Yanopoulos, himself a South Florida native.

The property will feature world-class amenities, exclusive services and perks that offer residents a resort-like experience in a gracious, residential setting. Features include a private beach club, state-of-the-art gym and spa facilities, beachfront pool with sunning beds and private cabanas and richly appointed entertainment areas, as well as 24-hour security, butler and valet services. Ocean House residents will also enjoy preferred access to local businesses including renowned restaurants, salons, child and pet care, among others, to provide residents with personalized on-demand benefits.
