From Engel & Voelkers:
The center of Miami is Brickell with its burgeoning lifestyle, five star restaurants, expansive retail, and the heart of the city's financial industry. It has become one of the hottest neighborhoods in the world. Just a short walk away from the bustling Brickell Financial District on South Miami Avenue comes the first of its kind collection of new homes that is setting the standard for residential "home" living in the area. This lovely tree-lined street is Miami's original Millionaire's Row and earned a special historic designation of 1977. Villa Leone is Millionaire's Row reimagined for a bold, new feature.
Villa Leone, a collection of five new homes, is the catalyst in the revitalization of South Miami Avenue. Surrounded by gracious historic homes and contemporary luxury residences just walking distance from the center of Miami's vibrant Brickell neighborhood. Villa Leone is a private, new construction in a coral rock gated community of only five homes delivering Summer 2018. The grand modern villas offer a sleek two-story design with sweeping floor to ceiling windows, seamless indoor/outdoor living, and breathtaking rooftop terraces with views of the city skyline. Villa Leone 1 at 5,345 square feet (plus the rooftop terrace) is spacious. An open great-room and Italian-designed kitchen connect via sliding glass doors to the pool deck, summer kitchen, and outdoor dining area for effortless casual entertaining.
Created by LOL Development out of a desire to identify a community's missing link and answer that need with a bespoken concept, the limited-edition collection will be brought to life by world-renowned architect Reinaldo Borges. The "Tropical Modern" design of this visionary $20 million project includes five, 3-story homes ranging from 5,354-7,716 sure feet of living space with open layouts and striking contemporary lines.
Villa Leone shows the same spirit of elegant living from the past, but brought forward into a lifestyle that is connected to the energy, entertainment, and elite shopping and dining that Miami of the new millennium has become. Behind the limestone wall that encircled the original property, these one-of-a-kind homes are reflections of modern tastes with a nod to the past.
