Miami Villa on Venetian Island Sells for $21 Million

Dora Puig of Luxe Living Realty represented Sabal Development and the buyer in the transaction.

A stunning luxury custom-built villa on Venetian Island has been purchased from Sabal Development for $21 million. The modern home at 1370 S. Venetian Way was redesigned by Togu Design and boasts a rooftop deck with a pool that overlooks the bay, along with downtown Miami views. The ground floor deck features a lounge area, negative-edge pool and spa.

“This is just one example of the impressive, state-of-the-art product our team produces time and time again,” Pascal Nicolai says, Founder and CEO of Sabal Development, which builds custom luxury homes in South Florida. “We enjoyed working on Venetian Island and have a second property that we are excited to bring to the market soon.”

Sabal Development originally purchased the property in August 2020 for $4.2 million.

This stunning, newly built villa boasts five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a two-car garage, and nearly 7,000 square feet of living space over two stories. Situated on a 10,500-square-foot lot, the property offers breathtaking waterfront views of South Beach and Brickell/Downtown Miami from its 60-foot waterfront. The home is illuminated with natural light year-round thanks to its direct southwest exposure. Inside, a beautifully crafted metal screen separates the open living and dining areas. The European eat-in chef’s kitchen is outfitted with custom walnut wood paneling and premium appliances. Outside, the spacious deck features a sizeable bayfront infinity pool and lounge area, while the rooftop patio is perfect for entertaining with its firepits and stunning views.

Sabal Development and Sabal Luxury Builder prioritize understanding their clients’ unique needs and lifestyles. Working closely with engineers, architects, and designers, the companies collaborate on projects from beginning to end. Over the past two years alone, Sabal Development has successfully sold custom homes built by Sabal Luxury Builder with a total value exceeding $146 million. Nicolai, who boasts over three decades of experience with residential projects in the U.S. and Europe, leads the team.
