Touring Our $2,500,000 Mansion In Miami | HGTV – Self Made Mansions

Speaker 1:

This is Self-Made Mansions.

Speaker 2:

(singing) Hello.

Shama Hyder:

Hello.

Speaker 3:

Hello. Hello.

Speaker 2:

So, let me tell you a little bit about this house. A six-bedroom, five-and-a-half bath. 4,600 square feet.

Speaker 3:

Oh, wow.

Shama Hyder:

This is nice. Wow.

For entertaining inside, indoors, when it’s too humid outside.

Speaker 2:

Let’s go upstairs.

Shama Hyder:

Oh, these are gorgeous.

Speaker 2:

Bedrooms up here, all of which have en suite bathrooms.

Speaker 3:

Wow, check out this bathroom.

Shama Hyder:

Oh, this is beautiful.

Speaker 3:

…close couldn’t be that awkward.

Shama Hyder:

It’s pretty awkward, if you’re more than one person in here.

Speaker 3:

Oh, yeah.

Speaker 2:

Three more bedrooms to go.

Speaker 3:

All right, let’s check them out.

Shama Hyder:

Okay, wow. This might make a really nice [inaudible 00:00:36].

Oh, this is beautiful.

Speaker 3:

This is another great nursery or office.

Shama Hyder:

Ooh, a swing.

Speaker 3:

Shama loves swings, by the way.

Speaker 2:

Really?

Shama Hyder:

In India, most of our homes have swings in them. This is really common.

Speaker 2:

I think that we should go outside.

Shama Hyder:

Okay, this is nice.

Oh, it’s nice. Yeah.

Speaker 2:

…dancefloor! Yes.

Speaker 3:

You know it is Miami. There’s Merengue.

Speaker 2:

Totally.

Can we take a look in the kitchen?

Shama Hyder:

Ooh, this is nice.

Speaker 2:

The house was built in the ’40s.

Shama Hyder:

So, my only one concern is that this looks like it’s an electric stove top.

Speaker 3:

She does cooking on the burner. They literally throw the [inaudible 00:01:12] on the burner.

Shama Hyder:

[inaudible 00:01:15] Okay. Now the sink.

Speaker 2:

Yes.

Shama Hyder:

It’s a little small.

Growing up, we thought the dishwasher was a dish dryer. Yeah. No, the buttons in our house were covered. We didn’t…

Speaker 2:

Don’t touch.

Let’s talk about this house.

Speaker 3:

Solid construction.

Shama Hyder:

Solid construction.

Speaker 3:

Every day for us, we’re like two big kids and it’s just like we want to pinch each other.

Speaker 2:

All right. Let’s keep looking.

Speaker 1:

Up next, a home in Coral Gables.

… and historical landmarks, like the Biltmore Hotel. You can just feel the history in this town. Five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms. 4,800 square feet.

Speaker 2:

Welcome to my home. I mean…

Shama Hyder:

Woo!

Speaker 2:

1920s, Southern Florida elegance.

 After you.

Shama Hyder:

Ooh!

Beautiful.

Speaker 3:

Wow!

Shama Hyder:

Is this-

Speaker 2:

Oh, by the way, that fireplace is one of three.

Shama Hyder:

This is really nice.

Speaker 3:

Looks like this is anything but cookie cutter.

Shama Hyder:

Yeah, this is beautiful.

Speaker 3:

Wow.

Speaker 2:

Original sconces here.

Shama Hyder:

Look at the piano, baby.

Speaker 3:

…piano.

Shama Hyder:

Look at the piano, baby.

Speaker 3:

Does it come with the piano?

Look at the detail on the fireplace, here.

Shama Hyder:

Oh, yeah. That’s gorgeous.

Speaker 3:

It really matches the room.

Shama Hyder:

Oh, look at this kitchen.

Speaker 2:

Natural light.

Shama Hyder:

Oh, and I love the copper.

Speaker 3:

I don’t feel like I’m having to crouch anywhere.

Shama Hyder:

It’s very majestic.

It’s a beautiful courtyard.

Speaker 3:

I feel like we need to trick people into throwing coins in.

Speaker 2:

Let’s make our way up these Italian marble stairs, because all the bedrooms are up there. Number three.

Shama Hyder:

Oh babe, check this out. I love that they used to have fireplaces back in the day.

This is great. Nice size closet.

Wait here for me while I get dressed for an event.

Speaker 3:

Are you ready yet, dear?

Shama Hyder:

See, now you’re getting it.

Speaker 2:

Now, you might not like the fact that the toilet looks right at the shower.

Speaker 3:

One at a time.

Speaker 2:

Let’s just check out some more of the bedrooms.

Shama Hyder:

Okay. Oh, this is so nice.

Speaker 2:

There’s actually a mother-in-law suite, a nanny suite.

Speaker 3:

They have a…

Shama Hyder:

It’s beautiful. So much room for entertaining.

Speaker 2:

This is something, huh?

Speaker 3:

I feel like I’m in Spain or something.

Speaker 2:

I know.

Shama Hyder:

Wow.

Speaker 2:

This house is called Casa Ida.

Speaker 3:

Oh, wow.

Speaker 2:

Just notice the Juliet balcony, as soon as you walk in. The gas lamps.

When Shama comes home, she should be greeted with a serenade.

Five bedroom, five-and-a-half baths. It’s 5,200 square feet.

Shama Hyder:

Oh, my goodness.

Speaker 3:

Wow, Shama’s kitchen.

Speaker 2:

Look at this.

Shama Hyder:

This kitchen! Copper work. The gas stove.

Speaker 2:

It’s a six burner gas stove.

I know that we could spend the whole day in this kitchen, but there’s a lot more house to look at.

Be careful, Shama. If you break it, you bought it. Okay? All right. So let’s…

Don’t slide down.

Speaker 3:

I was just going to do it-

Speaker 2:

I know what you were thinking.

Shama Hyder:

Do it!

Speaker 2:

Primary’s right down the hall.

Look at the stained glass over the primary bedroom.

Speaker 3:

[inaudible 00:03:45].

Shama Hyder:

Oh, that’s gorgeous.

Speaker 2:

You can open those doors right there, and you’ve got a beautiful terrace.

Shama Hyder:

This is what I’m talking about.

[inaudible 00:03:51] Chandelier.

Speaker 3:

Are you serious?

Shama Hyder:

Wow.

Speaker 3:

This is perfect for washing my dog.

… or the afternoon, which it usually is for us, because we don’t wake up early.

Shama Hyder:

Isn’t that the copper sinks?

Speaker 2:

Steam shower, lots of shower heads, room for a party in there.

Now this is set up as an office.

Speaker 3:

This could be a great home office for you, dear.

Shama Hyder:

… be a lot of room in this house.

Speaker 2:

All right. We have two bedrooms here, that are connected.

Why don’t we continue on the tour? We’ll go outside, downstairs. Get ready for this, y’all. If you like to entertain, this is the place to do it.

Speaker 3:

Oh yeah. We could host a ton of people here.

Speaker 2:

It’s almost a lazy river that goes around the house. You know what I mean? Where you just get a cocktail and…

Shama Hyder:

Great, high-end appliances over here.

Speaker 3:

What’s this?

Speaker 2:

You’ve got an ice machine.

Speaker 3:

Ice!

Speaker 2:

That’s the tour.

Let’s talk about this beautiful house.

Speaker 3:

Oh, you weren’t joking.

We’ve seen three places that I could realistically envision us raising a family in.

Speaker 2:

But the good news is, there’s really no wrong decision here, I don’t think. It’s just what you guys want.

Hey guys.

Shama Hyder:

We’ve made a decision.

Speaker 2:

Okay. Six bedroom, five-and-a-half baths, pool in the backyard.

Shama Hyder:

Mm-hmm (affirmative)

Speaker 3:

Love the in-house dining, entertainment area. That was unbeatable.

Speaker 2:

Coral Gables.

Speaker 3:

Oh yes. It really had the charm of the Biltmore Hotel. This home was so beautiful and so classic that I would feel bad even putting a computer screen in that place.

Speaker 2:

Casa Ita, with all that beautiful detail.

Shama Hyder:

That house was magnificent.

Speaker 2:

So, what’d you guys decide to do?

Speaker 3:

Well, Casa Ita.

Speaker 2:

Hey! Congrats!

Speaker 3:

Thank you.

Shama Hyder:

Thank you. The beautiful thing about this home, to me, is that it represents the journey from where we’ve started…

Speaker 2:

Well, you guys have obviously worked very hard, in your respective fields, as different as they are. Best of luck with your new family.

Shama Hyder:

Thank you.

Speaker 3:

Thank you.

Shama Hyder:

I’m really thrilled for you guys.

Speaker 3:

We chose this house because it was just like a fantasy dream come true.

Shama Hyder:

The recording studio is now gorgeous. We’ve got this amazing music room with all his VR and gaming. He loves it.

Ooh, Daddy’s grilling.

Speaker 3:

We love to be able to host our family and friends.

Shama Hyder:

We’ve worked so hard, and this is our time. We deserve it. We love sharing that. Hi there. This is Shama Hyder again. Thank you so much for watching my videos. I super appreciate it.
