SIX EXCEPTIONAL ISLANDS

The Venetian Islands are one of Miami’s most coveted waterfront living communities. Miami residents adore the array of public parks, grocery stores, upscale restaurants and bars all within a short walk from any home here. Fitness studios like Jet Set, Barry’s, and Anatomy are local essentials to staying healthy and fit. Featuring 299 waterfront houses and 459 dry-lot homes, luxury living is the standard here. Residents have an acquired affinity for boating, paddle boarding, and diving. 

Comprised of six islands: Belle Isle, Rivo Alto, Dilido, San Marino, San Marco, and Biscayne Island, the community is very walkable and is known for its exceptional waterfront homes. The Venetian Causeway connects the islands and is a scenic route between the Miami mainland and Miami Beach. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and has two drawbridges for yacht traffic.

VENETIAN ISLAND HOMES

Home prices range from $1,000,000 to $35,000,000 for single family homes. In late 2020, Gatien represented the buyer of 709 E Dilido Dr, a waterfront Venetian Island home on Dilido Island for a record sale price of $10,200,000, marking the highest sale in Florida of the week. Since then, the estimated value of the home has risen by over 60% due to the strong demand for modern, waterfront, large single family homes located within walking distance to restaurants and entertainment. Homes on the Venetian Islands change hands quickly as developers create exceptional new-construction projects such as 55 E San Marino by Arthur Casas and construction by Luis Bosch. 1429 N Venetian Way marked the Venetian Islands' highest sale in the Venetian Islands history by selling for nearly $29,000,000 in December, 2020.

There are a number of well-appointed, waterfront condominium complexes such as 10 Venetian, 9 Island, and 1000 Venetian. Prices range from $110,000 for a small studio to $6,500,000 for a six-bedroom penthouse at 10 Venetian.

VENETIAN ISLAND FACTS

The Venetian Causeway is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is approximately 3 miles long. Also, at the end of each island are City easements for stormwater management via pump stations. These lessen the risks of flooding during the rainy season.

VENETIAN ISLAND HOMEOWNER TIPS

When searching for a property on the Venetian Islands, the preferable view is West. Miami locals appreciate the spectacular sunsets rather than sunrises, and the afternoon light is preferable as well. Waterfront, single-lot sizes are 10,500 sq.ft. with a 60 ft. width and 175 ft. depth. Dry-lot sizes are generally 7,500 sq.ft. with a 60 ft. width and 125 ft. depth. When traveling throughout the Venetian Islands during the day, we suggest avoiding the half-hour marker to not get stuck at the bridge.
