Casa Aman, a villa that was just completed on the prestigious Venetian Island in Miami Beach, has come onto the market for $14.995 million. The waterfront home has 8,520 square feet of living space with five bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, according to the listing with Darin Tansey of Douglas Elliman posted Monday.
An elevator serves the first floor to the rooftop, where there is a putting green. Outdoors, there are balconies, covered porches, a barbecue area, a patio, a pool, and a private dock with an electric lift for two jet skis, according to the listing. The villa was developed by Michael Horvitz, 60, a Florida-based real estate investor, designer and manufacturer, who was inspired by Aman Resorts, a luxury hotel group with 32 destinations in the world.
“I wanted to build a villa-like home in Miami embodying the best of Aman Resorts that I experienced,” Mr. Horvitz said. “Certain fundamental elements—lighting, sound, texture, and flow of energy—are very important to me.” In 2016, Mr. Horvitz bought the waterfront, 0.24-acre lot on East Dilido Drive for $4.875 million, property records show. The east-facing property boasts an “unobstructed eastern view of South Beach and [a] year-round beautiful eastern breeze,” Mr. Horvitz said, “And there are no cars or boats flying by, so it has absolute privacy and tranquility.”
Mr. Horvitz said it was not possible to calculate the construction cost. “It’s a project of passion,” he said. “I believe the asking price is an honest assessment of the value of the property.” “The meticulous design and unparalleled finishes, as well as the location and positioning of this unique lot, will attract buyers who really appreciate the thought, effort and execution of Casa Aman,” Mr. Darin said.
