Skateboarder and skatepark proponent Nick Katz acquired the Miami house that was featured on the popular TV series “The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes.”

Katz paid $1.46 million for the Brillhart house at 937 Northwest North River Drive, near the Miami River. Architects Jacob and Melissa Brillhart sold the two-bedroom, 1,581-square-foot house, property records show.

The home, in the Spring Garden neighborhood of Miami, was featured on an episode of the BBC show, which was picked up by Netflix. It was designed and built by the Brillharts. It has two floor-to-ceiling doors and windows, a front porch with louvered shutters, and tropical landscaping.

It hit the market in September for $1.78 million with Gary Feinberg of Compass. Jackson Keddell of Douglas Elliman represented the buyer, according to Realtor.com. Elliman declined to comment.

The land sold in 2011 for $165,000.

Katz is director of SkateFree, and created the Grand Central Skate Spot project in downtown Miami, according to the organization’s website. SkateFree is “committed to helping young boys and girls gain confidence and life skills through skateboarding.”

One of the other Miami area houses featured on the BBC/Netflix show was 4567 Pine Tree Drive in Miami Beach, which Jamie LeFrak, vice chairman and managing director of LeFrak, purchased last year for $19.65 million.
