GLOBAL FINDS FOR A REIMAGINED LANDMARK PROPERTY

Creating a home that’s both modern and timeless—as well as unique— requires inspiration, stamina, and the ability to think outside the box. For John Finton, of the luxury-building firm Finton Construction, this process is second nature. Literally no stone is left unturned in his search for the ideal building materials and furnishings for his custom projects in both the U.S. and abroad.

Finton recently was called to work on a high-profile Miami Beach project—a historic Mediterranean Revival home on Star Island Drive that has been stripped of more recent additions, picked up, and repositioned on its lot in order to accommodate a new, modern dwelling for the client. The original house is being restored with a contemporary twist, adjacent to the new home. “Nobody wants to tear down something beautiful and charming. In Pasadena,
I grew up remodeling
and restoring these
homes, so it made
sense to me to move
this house,” he says.
