A partner at the law firm Baker & McKenzie paid $5.6 million for a waterfront Spanish-style home in the Venetian Islands.

Curtis Masters, who works at the firm’s Kazakhstan office, bought the 5,369-square-foot, five-bedroom home for $1,062 per square foot at 60 West Rivo Alto Drive, records show. Masters bought the property from 60WRIVOALTO LLC, which lists a Santa Clara address that is home to the medical office of NMCI Medical Clinic.

CJ Maier of NextHome Maier & Bar Properties represented the seller in the transaction. He said the sellers were four doctors from California.

Mirce Curkoski and Albert Justo of One Sotheby’s International Realty represented the buyer. Curkoski said Masters is looking to retire in Miami and plans to make the home his full-time residence. Masters was attracted to the property because of its location and proximity to Lincoln Road, according to Curkoski.

The home was built in 2002. Curkoski said the buyer is planning to do some minor renovations to the property, which features an in-law suite overlooking the courtyard, a pool and a large covered patio.

It last sold in 2014 for $5.4 million, records show.

The Venetian Islands are home to a number of wealthy buyers. In 2017, Whatsapp investor Jim Goetz paid $22 million for the seven-bedroom, 11,600-square-foot home at 212 West Dilido Drive. And last September, French magazine editor Jean Pierre Cohen paid $11.7 million for a home at 1374 South Venetian Way.
