After suffering the humiliation of seeing their film permit rejected by the city of Miami Beach under pressure from would-be neighbors, reality TV stars Kim Kardashian and sister Kourtney will have to schlep all the way to North Miami for the next three months of production.

North Miami? Doesn’t sound as sexy as Miami Beach, does it? And it’s 40 minutes away in traffic!

Still, Gossip Extra has learned the producers of E!’s Kim & Kourtney Take Miami found a six-bedroom mansion which, while not quite on the beach, has a great view on the area’s condo high rises on the Intracoastal!

And of course, Gossip Extra‘s first to have the photos!

The Kardashians are all settled at 2095 NE 120th Road in North Miami, several sources tell me. The 17,000-square-foot house is construction company owner Emilio Vega‘s, according to records. He didn’t return calls for comment.

Records show he paid $2 million in 2005 for the once empty lot then put at least another million into the house. Vega plans on selling it after the Kardashians are gone.

The property, by the way, is on a point of the San Souci neighborhood.

“We did receive a notice in the mail that filming was about to go on but I’m not sure anyone cared,” said one neighbor who asked not to be identified.

Said another, well-known realtor Jeff Tomlinson: “I’m already at war with the producers. They have dozens of cars parked all over the place. I’m trying to sell a lot next door, and I can’t get buyers on the property!”

Oh, yes. The street has a manned gate, too.

Thing is: The guard doesn’t have the legal power to stop anyone from going through. NE 120th Road, you see, is a county road. And in Florida, no one can stop a motorist from using a county road!

So, what happened in Miami Beach?

“Several neighbors objected,” said Debra Leibowitz, a member of the Miami Beach HOA where the Kardashians were supposed to live. “The city’s film office need approval from neighbors within 500 and couldn’t get it.”

The expected presence of film crew, gawkers and paparazzi were among the residents’ concerns.

Producers then tried the Eastern Shores neighborhood of North Miami Beach, where also they met resistance.

    The first time I saw this property it was I was on one of those Discovery America/HGTV channels. I’m sorry just don’t remember which channel. The episode was called Epic homes. I thought it was just beautiful. Then to find out that it was the home that the Kardashian’s filmed the Miami. So that gave me a chance to watch all episodes that featured the house, just to get a preview the home only. Beautiful property!!! I drove by just to see it. I’m impressed with the structure and all the thought that was gone into the development.

    But I have to say I’m struggling with the $14,500,000 price tag when considering the neighborhood. I realize that San Souci estates is a well-established neighborhood. But it’s still North Miami!!! And when I came out onto Biscayne Boulevard I felt like I stepped into another neighborhood which I have to be honest seems like quite a downgrade. So I ask the question is the property really worth $14,500,000. I think it’s worth about $8M. Just because of the surrounding area. I’m curious to know anyone else’s thoughts or am I just not being realistic here as to what things are worth. I REALLY do want another opinion
