Casa Casuarina Versace Miami Beach Mansion Up For Sale
The Jills, part of the Coldwell Banker team, have announced the official listing of Casa Casuarina. Once the property of Gianni Versace, the Miami Beach mansion has an asking price of $125 million U.S. dollars. Located in trendy South Beach, the mansion is known throughout the world not only for its size, but also for its elegant style. Every room within the mansion displays great attention to detail, making it one of the few ultra-luxury homes ever to be listed.
Casa Casuarina was built in 1930 and is the work of an architect by the name of Alden Freeman. Freeman chose to live in the home for a period of seven years, at which point it was sold to Jacques Amsterdam and renamed “Amsterdam Palace.” The “Alcazar de Colon” home, which is one of the oldest existing homes, was said to have played an important role as Freeman used it to draw inspiration for the architecture of Casa Casuarina. The property would not be purchased by Versace until 1992, at which point Versace invested over $30 million dollars for refurbishing.
Peter Loftin is the current owner. Loftin purchased the property in 2000, and has made very few changes. Fans of Versace will be happy to know that his design elements are still in place and can be seen throughout the property. Considered by many to be a work of art, the home measures 19,000 square feet and includes ten bedrooms and eleven bathrooms. Other highlights include a beautiful courtyard and a pool that is lined in gold and measures 54 feet in length. Classic arched doorways and a number of statues can be seen throughout the property.
Clearly, this is a home that should be seen in person in order to be fully appreciated. Millions of details add up to a home that is a truly one of a kind. Though the Versace name and touches add to the fame of the property, Casa Casuarina was a special property long before the famous designer purchased it. The classic architecture was already in place, with the property enhancements being overseen by Versace.
The list of potential buyers will certainly not be lengthy, but will likely include any number of celebrities or Fortune 500 business owners and executives. Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg (The Jills) have been entrusted with the task of finding the right buyer for Casa Casuarina, and are currently showcasing it on their website. Eighteen images of the famous 1116 Ocean Drive mansion are currently available for viewing via the website.
