Douglas Elliman’s the Goihman Group is now handling sales for a boutique, beachfront townhouse development in Surfside. 

Property Markets Group developed the seven-unit project at 9501 Collins Avenue, Richard Goihman told The Real Deal, and sold it to London investment group Surfside Bal Harbour LLC in 2014. Records show the owner is tied to London-based Matterhorn Capital, which paid $15.2 million for the units about three years ago.

The four-story townhouses each have four bedrooms, a rooftop terrace, summer kitchen and plunge pool, a gourmet kitchen and private two-car garage. Prices range from $3.95 million to $7.25 million, depending on proximity to the ocean. Goihman is listing the five remaining units with his wife, Ivonn Goihman.

The Goihmans sold townhouse 1 about two weeks ago to a domestic buyer in the development business. Records show Suffolk Palm Road Realty LLC paid $3.45 million for unit 1 on Jan. 18. The LLC is controlled by Jay Tangney and Michael Azarela, both Suffolk Construction executives based in Boston. Madeleine Romanello, a broker associate with Compass, represented the buyer.

The Matterhorn affiliate also sold unit 6 in 2014 for $5.1 million, records show.

Shapiro Associates designed the units, which were furnished by Steven G. and Walter Garcia. Richard Goihman said that finishing the units made a difference when showing them. “People ran out,” he said. “When a professional designer came in here and created a lifestyle, we had a tremendous response immediately.”

Surfside, a quiet beachfront town north of North Beach, is undergoing a major transformation, with luxury oceanfront condominium towers rising along the ocean, like the recently completed Fendi Château Residences and the Four Seasons Hotel and Residences at the Surf Club, which is now under construction.
