One of the first man-made islands in the early 1900's, today San Marco Island is known as part of the Venetian Island chain of luxury homes that lies between the cities of Miami and Miami Beach. San Marco Island is considered one of the premier waterfront luxury island communities of Miami Beach. Originally conceived as a seaplane port prior to World War II, today San Marco Island is highly sought-after for those looking to own a waterfront home in Miami Beach. Located adjacent to the City of Miami, San Marco Island luxury homes are a fantastic choice for those looking to experience the downtown lifestyle while living within the privacy of a luxury waterfront island community.
As with other Miami Beach homes, in the past few years many of the homes on San Marco Island have undergone extensive expansions and architectural renovations. The luxury homes on San Marco Island feature large backyards, oversized boat docks with deep water moorings, and incredible views overlooking Biscayne Bay, the Downtown Miami skyline, and the City of Miami Beach in the distance. Many of the homes on San Marco Island have a unique architectural heritage and date from the late 1930's. Many of these historic homes date from an era when Miami Beach homeowners commissioned the best architects to construct grand Winter getaway homes. Today, these homes and estates allow the Miami Beach homeowner to enjoy oversized backyards, luxury gourmet kitchens, beautiful swimming pools, expansive views of the water, and docks that can accomodate up to 100' boats.
The Venetian Causeway connects the city of Miami Beach to downtown Miami, and is a historical causeway that was carefully restored in the early 2000's. The Venetian Islands Causeway has limited traffic (and toll booths) with a maximum speed limit of 25 mph in order to preserve the calm and charm of the surrounding luxury homes in the island communities along this East / West corridor. The Venetian Causeway runs along the entire East to West length of the Venetian Islands, and is especially popular with joggers and sports enthusiasts. The Arsht Performing Arts Center in Downtown Miami is to the west, while South Beach lies on the immediate eastern end of the Venetian Island Chain.
