A sleek contemporary home at 8 West Rivo Alto Drive just listed for $22.5 million, pricing it among the 30 most expensive homes for sale in Miami Beach.
The 7,026-square-foot Venetian Islands residence faces south and features 107 feet of frontage along Biscayne Bay. It has five bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms while offering floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, glass balconies, and an elliptical staircase beneath a large skylight.
The home is a collaboration between architect Choeff Levy Fischman and Deborah Wecselman Design. It comes fully furnished with several contemporary pieces of art and also includes a custom-designed aquarium, a high-end sound system, Cerused Oak Wood flooring, a custom Boffi kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, a dock, and a four-car garage utilizing electric car lifts.
“Unlike many of the new homes of this scale in Miami, 8 West Rivo Alto was not built on spec, but personally designed by the owners with painstaking attention to detail,” says Brown Harris Stevens listing agent Jeff Miller. “Setting out to build their dream home, the couple sought properties by boat to identify the best water frontage and views. After a six-month search for the perfect lot, the design and construction took three years to complete. The location and design of the home make for a rare combination that has already generated significant interest.”
The property sold for $6.7 million in 2014 with the current home completed this year.
