Listing of the Day
Location: Miami Beach, Florida
Price: $22 million
The penthouse at Beach House 8 offers privacy and luxury living in one of Miami Beach’s most happening neighborhoods.
The development, completed in 2016, has just eight units, which means running into a neighbor in the lobby is a rare occurrence, said agent Isabel “Chavela” Gonzalez of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. She and Claudio Prattico, both based in the Coral Gables office, share the listing.
“If you don’t want to be seen, you can disappear here,” she said. “Yet you’re in the middle of the best of Miami Beach.”
Taking up the top three floors of the building, the penthouse features more than 5,000 square feet of terraces, the agents said.

That outdoor space includes several patios, as well as a private roof deck with a pool. The views from these spaces are expansive, according to the agents, encompassing the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal waterway and Miami skyline.
The penthouse has an open layout with floor-to-ceiling windows to frame those views. The combined living and dining area opens up onto a balcony facing the ocean, according to the listing, with a chef’s kitchen just beyond it.
The kitchen is outfitted with Miele appliances and a gas range, plus a gold Calacatta counter and back-splash and Boffi cabinetry.
The master bedroom takes up an entire floor, and has two terraces—one with city views and the other overlooking the ocean. The master bathroom has dual sinks, a soaking tub and separate shower.
There’s also one junior bedroom suite, plus two regular suites, the agents said.
The five-bedroom, six-bathroom penthouse has more than 10,000 square feet of combined indoor-and-outdoor living space.
The penthouse is a turn-key property, with everything from sheets and towels to luxury furnishings provided. Artefacto, a Brazilian-based company with an outpost in Coral Gables, is behind the home’s largely glass-and-wood decor.
The apartment has its own fully outfitted fitness center with TechnoGym machines. In addition to the private pool on the roof, there’s also a residents’ pool on the ground level.
Beach House 8 has around-the-clock valet and concierge services, and also offers beach service. That includes private umbrellas, chairs and towel-service for those soaking in the Florida sunshine.
The penthouse also has two parking spots in the building’s private garage.
The building was designed by Miami-based architect Bernardo Fort-Brescia, a founding principal of the firm Arquitectonica, and was developed by Valerio Morabito and Ugo Colombo, both Italian natives.
Mr. Colombo and his company, CMC Group, are behind several high-profile Miami buildings, including Bristol Tower and Santa Maria on Brickell Avenue, according to the company’s website.
Beach House 8 is Mr. Morabito’s first Miami project, but he and his company, Morabito Properties, worked on 70 Greene and 45 E. 74th St. in New York.
Designer Michele Bonan, also of Italy, was behind the penthouse’s interiors.
The property is in Miami Beach’s Faena District, “the hottest area of Miami Beach,” according to Mr. Prattico. Reaching along Collins Avenue south of 41st Street, the neighborhood has seen an influx of luxury development in recent years.
Top-notch restaurants, bars and hotels are all within walking distance of the penthouse, Mr. Prattico said. But with beach-side service at home, there may be no reason to ever leave.
