- Ivanka and Jared purchased the $24 million home on Indian Creek Island in 2021
- They have spent over a year renovating the massive waterfront property
- New images of the mansion show that the resort-style pool has been filled
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are getting to dive into the next chapter of their lives as the construction of their lavish waterfront mansion on Miami’s most exclusive island nears completion.
The former White House senior advisers purchased the $24 million fixer-upper on Indian Creek Island — best known as the ‘Billionaire Bunker’ thanks to its celebrity residents — after moving to Florida in January 2021.
Ivanka, 41, and Jared, 42, have spent more than a year renovating the 1.3-acre estate overlooking Biscayne Bay, and it looks like their dream home is almost ready.
Exclusive DailyMail.com images of the property show that the mansion’s massive pool has finally been filled with water, a sign that they are in the last stages of construction.
The couple scooped up the palatial property a few months after they left Washington, D.C. with their three children, Arabella, 12, Joseph, nine, and Theodore, seven.
The mansion boasts six bedrooms and eight-and-a-half bathrooms, as well as lush landscaping, reflective pools, and a large dock.
They were spotted checking on the construction last week — days after the arrest of her father, former President Donald Trump, and the release of his historic mugshot from Fulton County jail in Georgia.
Ivanka wore a sporty black T-shirt and matching leggings, which she paired with pink and black sneakers.
Her long blonde hair was pulled back, and she shielded her eyes from the Florida sunshine with a white baseball cap and mirrored sunglasses.
Jared, meanwhile, had on a white pocket T-shirt, jeans, dark shades, and his beloved gray New Balance sneakers.
They were smiling and conversing with both each other and those on-site about arrangements for the outdoor area of the nearly complete mansion.
Even though the couple has yet to move in, they took advantage of their home’s stunning exterior and posed for outdoor portraits with their children earlier this year.
It’s unclear what interior changes they have made to their new residence.
Previous images that were taken before their renovations showed its 24-foot high-domed ceilings, grand double staircase, and open entertaining areas.
The property also featured a large family and screening room, a wood-paneled office, a large gym, and a huge master bedroom with two full bathrooms.
The mansion was sold to the couple by billionaire Alex Meruelo and his wife, Liset Meruelo. It was also previously owned by record producer Scott Storch from 2004 to 2008.
Ivanka and Jared’s purchase came just seven months after they bought a two-acre lot on the island that was once owned by the Spanish singer Julio Iglesias for $32.2 million.
They started putting down roots on Indian Creek around the same time Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen dropped $17 million on a plot of land in the village.
The former couple spent another $10.12 million in construction costs to build what was supposed to be their forever home before the announcement of their divorce.
Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos became the latest resident of ‘Billionaire Bunker’ after paying $68 million for a waterfront mansion in the neighborhood.
The world’s third-richest man, 59, initially kept his identity undisclosed when he bought he bought the three-bedroom property in June.
Other A-listers who call the island home include hotel magnate Jeffrey Soffer, billionaire investor Carl Icahn, Haitian billionaire Gilbert Bigio, former Sears CEO Edward Lampert, and former United Airways chief executive Rakesh Gangwal.
Ivanka and Kushner have been living a quiet life in Miami since they relocated to Florida after former President Trump left office in January 2021.
They moved out of their home in Washington, D.C.’s affluent Kalorama neighborhood and into Arte Surfside, a luxury condominium building nestled between Miami Beach and Bal Harbour.
The building is one of the most expensive complexes in Miami-Dade County, with an average rental price of nearly $47,000 per month.
Its penthouse sold for $33 million to an unnamed private equity executive from New York in January 2021 — the same month that they moved into the condominium.
They got a new landlord earlier this year when the 7,000-square-foot unit was sold for $17 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The mother of three announced last November that she was focusing on her family and would not be a part of her father’s 2024 White House bid.
However, Vanity Fair reported last week that she had changed her mind in light of her dad’s soaring polls and hopes to once again become part of his administration if he is elected president for a second term.
