Golden Beach's Five Most Expensive Homes For Sale, According To (PHOTO)

Golden Beach is a hidden enclave of wealth less than a mile long and 100 yards wide situated at the northernmost stretch of Dade County. Despite its tiny size, the secretive posh town even has its own police force.

And although plenty of celebrities have or do maintain residences there -- the list reportedly includes Bill Gates, Paul Newman, and recently Ricky Martin -- most South Floridians have likely never heard of the cryptic community.

Rock fans, however, will be familiar with a certain Golden Beach home -- the one featured on Eric Clapton's 1974 album "461 Ocean Boulevard," famed for its Bob Marley cover "I Shot The Sheriff."

And while Clapton's featured house is frankly nothing special, Golden Beach's current cache of homes on the market is truly breathtaking.

With the highest price tag set at $21 million, these beachfront homes feature in-home theaters, private saunas, elevators, private beach access and separate maid/in-laws quarters.

One ultramodern estate even has a tricked-out guesthouse complete with an electronic roof that reveals an artist studio on the top floor (see slide 32 below).
