Luxury Living: Dream Home On Venetian Isles
It's one of Miami's most desirable addresses, with a view to die for...In tonight's Luxury Living report, we're showing you how a little creativity and a great location can turn a house into heaven.
(WSVN) -- It's a little bit Art Deco meets the Orient...throw in a taste of the islands, and you've got a 4 bedroom, 5 bath Luxury Living dream home on Venetian Isles.
Realtor Jeri Jenkins says, "The house is what is called Tropical Modern, the architecture. And it has the feeling of being on a cruise ship...you walk in and just wow! The view, the whole feeling of the glass and the openness."
Built in the 1950's, the wall to wall glass doors overlooking the bay really make this house unique.
But, the piece de resistance is the fabulous pool, built on the balcony of the second floor, it's truly one of a kind.
Jeri says, "This is what's called a suspended pool, and it's one of only five that were built on Miami Beach. And it is unfortunately the only one that's remained."
Once inside, walk on over to the master bedroom, also on the second floor.
You can't miss it, it's the room with no doors.
And who needs privacy when you've got a view like this.
"I think that's sort of the original loft style."
Peek around the corner at the living room... The decor is a combination of styles from around the world.
Jeri says, "It's very eclectic. They have some oriental things...you see a lot of sculptures, a lot of glass, a lot of different types of finishes."
The home's staircase is not only impressive... It's famous.
"It's been in quite a few magazines and books. And this is one of them "Miami Trends And Traditions" and it shows you how beautiful the staircase is, that it's really a work of art."
Browse around the decadent downstairs, complete with 2 bedrooms, a full living area and a guest bedroom that bares a distinct resemblance to the upstairs master.
It's a breathtaking view; your guests won't ever want to leave.
Jeri says, "It's unique, it's fabulous, It's fun. It'd be great to have parties in, and fun to live in."
This house is for sale for 4.5 million dollars.
