Found in one of Miami Beach’s most sought-after enclaves, this outstanding abode is a design lover’s dream. The seven-bedroom home spans nearly 8,000 sq ft of living space with a grand entry gallery, double-height living room with fireplace, formal dining room, gigantic dine-in chef’s kitchen (complete with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances), and master suite with private deck and custom walk-in closets.
At the water’s edge sits a 90-ft infinity pool, cabana, private boat dock and patio. Perhaps the biggest draw, however, is the exceptional design by award-winning designer and architect Achille Salvagni. Salvagni envisioned 810 Lakeview Drive to be a ‘surgically precise sculpture,’ inspired by the poetry of Gio Ponti’s era, blended with a hint of 1950s Miami.
Due to Covid travel restrictions, Salvagni oversaw every detail in 810 Lakeview Drive from his apartment in Rome, using video calls to direct the specific placement for the interiors. And what interiors! Handcrafted fixtures, millwork and floors; one-of-a-kind marble; bespoke cabinetry with 24-carat gold leaf detailing; and a show-stopping bronze staircase.
