Julian Johnston Closes on Ultra-Luxurious 401 E. Dilido Dr.September 16, 2015
Julian Johnston has just closed on one of the most coveted Miami Waterfront Homes on the market: 401 E. Rivo Alto Dr., located in the prestigious Venetian Islands community that span Biscayne Bay. It was sold by 440 Somma, LLC., for $9.35 million to Richard Comras, brother of Michael Comras, who is responsible for selling $370 million of property on Lincoln Road.
Built in 2014, the modern home was one of the newest on the market, boasting a sleek and functional design by the reputable AquaBlue Group. Surrounded by lush landscaping on a sizeable waterfront lot of 10,500 square feet, 401 E. Rivo Alto Dr. invokes the sense of being on a paradise island. This tranquil enclave overlooks the pristine Biscayne Bay and the colorful Miami Beach skyline.
Offering the latest in contemporary design, it is characterized by a clean, minimalist style both inside and out, with the combination of wood and white finishes providing a warm and naturalistic feel. The innovative floor plan of 6,500 square feet includes seven bedrooms, seven bathrooms, and one half-bathroom, each large and accommodating.
The interiors are characterized by high ceilings, spacious common areas, and lots of natural lighting accentuated by clean white finishes and elegant Ipe wood. You will be welcomed by a serene courtyard upon entering, and find yourself struck by Italian furnishings, world-class fixtures, and state-of-the-art lighting installments. Sliding doors open to the picturesque pool and exquisite Ipe wood dock.
The property’s esteemed Venetian Islands location means it also offers easy access to both Miami and Miami Beach, all but ensuring an ideal quality of life. Given its incredible potential, 401 E. Dilido Dr.’s rapid closure is unsurprising, especially given Mr. Johnston’s distinguished track record of quick and effective sales.
This includes the sale of 1142 N. Venetian for $10.5 million; 191 N Hibiscus Dr. for $14.3 million; and 2122 Bay Av. for $8.2 million. Most notable is the acclaimed 2012 sale of a penthouse at Continuum in South Beach for $25 million, the most expensive condo sale in Florida history.
