According to the South Florida Business Journal, the property sold at $2,671 per square foot of interior space which is considered a fair price compared to luxury real estate like New York and Los Angeles.

Ocean Grande Properties, a joint venture between Ugo Colombo of CMC Group and Valerio Morabito of Morabuto Properties, sold the top-floor unit in the beachfront condo at 3651 Collins Ave. to Beach House 8 BH3. The buyer secured a 25-year, $7.98 million mortgage from Sabadell United Bank with a 4.5 percent annual interest rate.

Although Miami attorney Timothy D. Richards is the managing member of Beach House 8 BH3, the borrower in the mortgage is listed as Garnero. He’s the president and principal shareholder of BrasilInvest, a major real estate investment firm. The company is also one of the financial backers of art collector Gary Nader’s development proposal for Miami Dade College’s downtown campus.

Morabito said Garnero and his other buyers valued the exclusivity of the project, which has only eight units and private elevators, in addition to its high-end finishes. Beach House 8 has sold out, he added.

Beach House 8 Penthouse

The master suite and private terrace at the rooftop level, (whose singular bathtub offers ocean views across a sweeping private deck), recalls the commanding proportions of the personal cabins on a yacht’s quarterdeck, with the same gracious yet adventurous maritime feeling to be found in everything from the crisply-detailed cable-railings to the horizon-deep views of sea and sky.
