Architect Piero Lissoni is giving Miami Beach the villa treatment.
The list of creatives putting their mark on Miami real estate is a rather enviable one. Among those is renowned Italian architect Piero Lissoni, who has partnered with The Ritz-Carlton Residences for 15 two-story villas in Miami Beach. The free-standing residences range in size from 3,263 to 4,643 square feet with three to five bedrooms, all with interiors and exteriors designed by Signor Lissoni. Among the details in each of the homes, priced from $4.37 million, are floor-to-ceiling windows, Boffi kitchens with Gaggenau appliances, bathrooms lined in marble with stand-alone tubs, Lissoni-designed Fantini fixtures and expansive private terraces wrapped in glass. As part of The Ritz-Carlton Residences complex, amenities include 36 private boat slips, an on-site captained Frauscher day yacht, pet grooming facilities, a yoga studio, a screening room, a spa and fitness center and a meditation garden in which to relish la dolce vita.
