Casa Clara, a spec mansion on the Venetian Islands in Miami Beach, has hit the market again with a new firm and a new approach.

To “accomodate the market” and just in time for Art Basel, the 11,600-square-foot mansion is being offered for $28.5 million, less than the $33 million it was listed for in April and the nearly $36 million before that. Julian Johnston of Calibre International Realty had the listing before Douglas Elliman brokers Eloy Carmenate and Mick Duchon took it over last week, Carmenate told The Real Deal.

The seven-bedroom, nine-bathroom home was designed by architect Ralph Choeff with interiors by Charlotte Dunagan Design Group. It includes natural finishes, custom Henge furniture, a Boffi kitchen, Kreon lighting, floor-to-ceiling glass doors, a private guest wing, home theater, den, two-story fireplace, infinity edge pool and a glass-enclosed wine room.

The property also has a 7.5-foot seawall and 120 feet of waterfront dockage, which could house the $15 million Sanlorenzo SD112 yacht. And the yacht is decked out with about $30 million worth of art. Altogether, the house, yacht and art could be purchased for $73.5 million, Carmenate told TRD.

He said the listing is a “different approach and priced differently to accommodate this market.”

Carmenate and Duchon will have a private event with Sanlorenzo’s clients to showcase the property during Art Basel. “These are people who can afford the art,” Carmenate said. “It’s a very interesting offering.”

Ahmad Lee Khamsi, who owns the Venezuelan cable company SuperCable, owns and developed Casa Clara. He paid $962,500 for the 22,000-square-foot lot in 2011. Earlier this year, Khamsi sued a buyer for failing to pay the deposit for the waterfront home. That suit is still open, according to Miami-Dade County records.
