Luxurious Venetian ‘beach house’ has water views from nearly every room



This contemporary, beach house-style waterfront gem on desirable Dilido Island, one of Miami Beach’s Venetian Islands, is a dream retreat for boating enthusiasts and a must-see for prospective luxury home buyers. Exquisitely renovated, the three-bedroom, three-bath residence, at 803 Dilido Dr., boasts 3,346 square feet of living space on a 10,500-square-foot lot that commands 60 feet of waterfront. Priced at $4,900,000, it is a modern masterpiece marked by wide, captivating vistas of Biscayne Bay.

Inside, large living spaces, flooded with natural light, are accented by Carrera marble and hardwood flooring, broad picture windows and vaulted ceilings. The spacious, updated kitchen is equipped with stainless steel appliances, custom lighting and an adjacent breakfast bar. The master suite occupies the entire second floor and features a double bath as well as a sitting area and office that look out over the bay. There is, additionally, a large guest room with vaulted ceilings, and the formal dining and living rooms are designed to offer impressive water views.

Lushly landscaped for privacy, the home is tucked away behind tropical foliage and large, contemporary gates. Sliding glass doors in the family room open to the pool and patio area, which sits adjacent to the home’s new dock and power pedestal lift.

The Venetian Islands are renowned for their location, which is within close proximity to the shopping venues, restaurants and nightlife of South Beach, yet comfortably removed from the bustle of activity.
