A home on the Intracoastal Waterway in Golden Beach, dubbed “Villa D’Amore,” just hit the market for $7.25 million.

The 7,068-square-foot house at 572 North Island Drive was built in 2007. It is being listed by Sue Honowitz of Rusty Stein & Co. The price breaks down to $1,026 per square foot.

The six-bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom, gated home has an elevator and a gym, Honowitz said. “It has fabulous outdoor appeal,” with 75 feet water frontage, she told The Real Deal.

According to Miami-Dade property records, the owners are Izac and Abby Ben Shmuel, with a New York address. They paid $1.7 million for the property in 2004, records show.

“It was custom-built,” Honowitz said. “Outside is Mediterranean, but two years ago she redid the house modern.”
