This $19 Million Miami Mansion Comes With Its Own Dock—and 111 Feet of Waterfront

Italian starchitect and designer Achille Salvagni , with offices in London and New York, has designed a retro-cool new residence as a tribute to the midcentury heyday of Miami Beach, as well as the acclaimed Italian designer Gio Ponti. Swooping, sensual white planes reminiscent of gulls’ wings frame the exterior; inside, luxurious materials — Negresco, Verde Alpi, and Malyat limestone; Belgium Black marble; polished French mahogany; brushed and natural oak; bronze — make up a building that seems more like a freestanding sculpture than a home.

Known for creating luxurious homes and yachts, as well as exquisite custom furniture and lighting, the Rome-based architect and designer was commissioned by an international client to design both the interior and exterior of the house. Newly completed and never lived in — the overseas-based owner has decided to sell due to pandemic-related travel complications — the property was initially priced at $21 million. It’s now listed with Oren Alexander and Isaac Lustgarten at Douglas Elliman with a $19 million price tag.

Every piece of furniture and artwork in the house was either designed by Salvagni or specially chosen to enhance the home’s dynamic architecture. Vintage pieces represent a who’s who of bold-faced designer names such as Paolo Buffa , Stilnovo, FontanaArte, Serge Mouille, Angelo Lelli, and Marco Zanuso), and, for an additional $1.2 million, everything can be purchased along with the property.

Inside are seven bedrooms and seven baths in almost 8,000 square feet. All that room to roam includes an entry gallery, a double-height living room with fireplace, and a bronze staircase. Kitchen cabinets are burnished with 24-karat gold leaf — who cares if it’s practical, right? — and everywhere you look there are curvilinear walls, towering windows, and dark wood accents that contrast with marshmallow-white paint and unexpected pops of color, such as the Yves Klein -blue enameled column that supports a lofted lounge that hovers above the living room.
Jonah Hill debuted a new tattoo reading the words “body love” in homage to his newfound passions in surfing and body positivity .

The 37-year-old actor took to his Instagram on Sunday to post a photo of his flexed arm with the tattoo on display on the back of his shoulder. And while it grabbed the attention of fellow surfers for its play on the brand name and logo of Body Glove, a water-sports apparel brand, Hill’s ink was mainly praised for spreading a positive message about body image and being amongst the first of male celebrities to do so. “You f***ing rock! Thanks for being yourself and loving yourself. I know it isn’t easy,” one person commented on the photo. Another wrote, “Bro you are an inspiration!”

Most importantly, others remarked that “we need more of this” — a sentiment to which Illinois-based clinical psychologist Emily Edlynn agrees.

“Any body positivity messages from high profile celebrities have the potential impact of influencing the landscape of body image messages in our culture,” she tells Yahoo Life of Hill’s post.
