Modern Miami Home on the Venetian Islands With Lots of Natural Materials

Few cities have seen the type of migration Miami has in the last couple of years. The reason is clear: The lifestyle, the space and access to water are all major draws, and this house at 40 West Rivo Alto on the Venetian Islands has all of those things—and then some.

Once asking $25 million, the six-bedroom, six-bathroom house is completely customized and modern. It’s on one of the three Venetian Islands, which boast walkability and easy water access.

And while the house feels modern—lots of white and crisp lines—natural features, such as wood walls, stone and water features and specimen trees, make it feel warm.

There’s lots of indoor/outdoor flow, plenty of outdoor entertaining spaces, and a summer kitchen for al fresco cooking. There’s also a large pool and dock, with room to park your boat. Interior details include a floating staircase and woven wallpaper on the walls.

The kitchen has Wolf appliances and porcelain countertops that are practically indestructible.

On the third floor you have four bedrooms, two are en-suite and two share one bathroom, Jack-and-Jill style. In a true sign of the times, the house also features a standalone en-suite office with its own outdoor space. The room could also be used as a guest room for anyone who wanted a little space from the main house.

Agent Danny Hertzberg of The Jills Zeder Group told Mansion Global host Kacie McDonell Hosmer that the developer considered the floorplans and the finishes that buyers want every step of the way. The result is a house that feels modern, tropical and lush, all at the same time.

And as an added bonus, developers elevated the structure “to be resilient to sea-level rise,” he said.

Mr. Hertzberg said he’s seeing people migrate down to Florida all the time.“It’s always been an attractive market… but now with the change in work with the pandemic, why not work from where you can vacation? Everyone’s moving here, it’s unbelievable,” he said.
