A tropical retreat now enters the market
If you’ve been eyeing what’s soon-to-be the only gated section of the Venetian Islands, a waterfront mansion with prime views of Miami Beach is up for grabs.
The sleek, 6,685-square-foot spread is being offered up by Brent Saunders, the former CEO of Allergan and current CEO of leading global eye health company, Bausch + Lomb. Saunders, who also serves as an executive chairman of Beauty Health Co., best known for its flagship brand HydraFacial, bought the palatial pad back in 2019, according to property records. Nearly five years and a stunning renovation later, he’s now decided to put his contemporary South Florida estate on the market for a cool US$19.5 million.
Originally built in 2014, the digs have all the makings of a modern tropical retreat. Altogether, the abode comprises six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and a private rooftop terrace. The main living area is armed with suede-paneled walls and telescopic sliding doors that open up to a swimming pool, hot tub, sun deck, outdoor kitchen, and covered terrace. Elsewhere, an updated chef’s kitchen is equipped with plenty of teak, Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, and not one but two eat-in marble islands.
Upstairs, an art gallery hall leads to five spacious bedrooms, including a truly epic water-facing primary suite. The space is decked out with floor-to-ceiling windows, a dressing room, and a large private balcony. Additional details include textured walls, a sparkling chandelier, and a built-in headboard. In addition to the bathroom, the primary bath is equally impressive with a soaking tub, two sinks, tons of marble, and a walk-in shower. Since the house is situated right on Biscayne Bay, the lush grounds are all about water access. You’ll find a dock to park your yacht, plus a boat lift.
