The priciest listing ever on Atlantic Isle in Sunny Isles just hit the market and it’s like nothing you’ve ever seen before. With grand opulence and ornate interiors this 8 bed/6.5 bath Mediterranean villa dubbed “Villa ‘Il Sogno’” is not for the minimalist.

Big personalities will embrace the imported finishes from around the world – from the impressive book-matched onyx floors from Italy, Pakistan, and Bolivia; to the mahogany doors from Hungary and wood floors from Brazil. However, the highlight of the show is the grand onyx staircase leading to the 2nd level with a foyer boasting 35’ high ceilings with a gold-leaf fresco depicting the Greek Gods painted by a French-trained Chilean artist.

The first floor of the mansion features a private dining room, one of a kind bar area with a grand seating space in shades of deep reds and orange with a hand-carved onyx fireplace and massive drapes adorning the double height windows. Additional features on the ground floor include a media room, 2 bedrooms, laundry room, kitchen, steam room and sauna.

The second level offers 6 loft-style bedrooms including the master suite with stunning water views. Within the master suite, find a jaw-dropping dressing room that rivals a department store with 3 separate sections and a glass wall for showcasing purses, jewelry, and shoes. A marbled masterpiece bathroom features specs of gold and a hand-painted mural on the ceiling above the tub. Outdoors, find a beautiful pool surrounded by massive pillars, water views and dock for a boat.
