This $17 Million Island House Has Prime Views of Miami

Boasting unbeatable vistas of downtown Miami, this modern waterfront home on the Venetian Islands was conceived by Choeff Levy Fischman Architecture + Design and completed in 2015. Even with its secluded location, the residence is just 20 minutes from Miami International Airport. Beyond the 11-foot distressed-metal pivot door, the open interiors feature European white oak flooring. There’s a large living room, a family room with a fireplace and built-in bar, a roomy kitchen with a dining area, a music room overlooking the ocean, a state-of-the-art home theater, and a sauna and hamman imported from Italy. A cantilevered staircase with frameless glass rails leads to the second floor, which houses the master suite with a sitting area and patio, as well as six additional bedrooms. The rooftop entertainment area has a grassy sundeck, a covered dining area, and an infinity-edge pool with ocean views. To get even closer to the water, head to the rear of the home where there’s a dock.
