Al Capone’s Miami Beach mansion asks $14.9MApril 30, 2018
The property also includes a two-bedroom, one-bathroom guest home that’s separate from the main house.
The Miami Beach home of Al Capone is back on the market for $14.9M.
The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom property includes a living room, kitchen, walk-in closets, and patios.
The home—located at 93 Palm Avenue—has been owned by many individuals including Mino Riaola, European soccer agent, but the prohibition-era gangster is its most infamous owner.
The Mediterranean-styled property’s history is pretty impressive, too.
Built in 1922, Capone bought the home after his release from Alcatraz Island in 1928. He spent $200,000 to install a gatehouse, seven-foot-high walls, search lights, a cabana, and coral rock grotto.
The home remained in the Capone family until 1952 when Al’s wife, Mae, sold it.
In 2015, the 6,103-square-foot mansion got a complete makeover courtesy of MB America, a wealth and investment management company. The property sits on a 30,000 square feet lot.
The gatehouse was transformed into a two-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse while other renovations include a black and gold Art Deco-inspired powder room, fireplace, and porch.
“Nearly 100 years later, this home is truly a rare gem on the water,” says Nelson Gonzalez of EWM Realty International who is selling the property.
Located on Palm Island and surrounded by Biscayne Bay, the colonial style home offers waterfront views. It’s also nearby Hibiscus Island and MacArthur Causeway that leads into South Beach and Downtown Miami.
The property has a private beach, a pool, and a two-story cabana.
The sprawling estate includes newly restored ceiling lights from the 1920s, French doors, hardwood floors, columns, open archways, and classic multi-pane windows.
“The attention to detail by MB America has preserved the home’s unique 1920’s attributes, yet its slew of modern conveniences and top-of-the-line amenities make it a lucrative draw for well-heeled buyers,” says Gonzalez.
