3080 Munroe Drive as the ideal location to provide water-front privacy and exclusivity along with proximity to Center City Miami and walking distance to the charm and sophisticated lifestyle of Coconut Grove, now Miami 's most desired residential address. Ernst developed the land with world re-known architects, Portuondo & Perotti. lt was Rafael Portuondo and his Andrea Palladio influences that attracted Sweitelsky the most, and the dual sensibility of balance and grandeur of his architectural skill. Portuondo is considered one of the best classical architects in the world today.
Though Swietelsky and Portuondo's architectural approach differed, they shared an affinity for combining classical European style with Mediterranean traditions found to influence new contemporary structures in Miami and the Caribbean.
This includes the perfectly balanced arches at the front of the Villa with coffered ceilings, courtyards, large expansive sheltered porches, and graceful terraces. Swietelsky's collaboration with this illustrious architectural firm was no accident and because of their shared histories, they also shared a singular attitude toward the location of Miami's Coconut Grove area as the most unique sophisticated enclave that provides an ideal jump-off point for exploring the Caribbean, Latin America and all the major Cities of the US with easy access.
Because of this coveted location, Villa Positano was developed in a gated exclusive refuge with only a ten-minute walk to upscale restaurants and entertainment venues like the new Cipriani Hotel and restaurant, and many more new options for the gourmand, with shops, banking and some of the best schools in the US.
The Villa Positano is a residential compound on the shores of scenic Biscayne Bay, South of the famed Villa Vizcaya. The entire architectural structure is oriented toward the water, and there are five bedrooms and five baths all with a view of the sparkling sea of Biscayne Bay from every room.
The Villa has over 300 feet of water frontage and sits on an expansive lot over 24,500 sq. Ft. surrounded by water on two sides.
There is 180 degree views from the great room of Villa Positano making it a breathtaking and dramatic center of the ultimate in tropical living.
The entrance of the Villa accommodates luxury cars in a vaulted carport, and the front door and foyer are complete with 30-foot ceilings for a dramatic entrance.
Borrowing from classical elements a Romanstyle center atrium is encircled on every floor with a band of exquisitely appointed rooms with Caribbean style twelve foot wide terraces on every level and of course unparalleled views.
Easy access to all levels with a three story elevator. Swietelsky as the developer crafted a residence with all the amenities one would need to make this a world-class residence and symbol of a life well planned. Nestled at the foot of picturesque Biscayne Bay, Villa Positano is a vessel for true luxury lifestyle.
