A waterfront Mediterranean mansion on Miami Beach that used to belong to retired MLB star and former Marlins catcher Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez, per The Real Deal, just sold for $19 million.
Located at 6385 Pine Tree Drive Circle, the La Gorce residence is 12,600 square feet, with nine bedrooms, 13 bathrooms (two half-baths), and 175 feet of water frontage along Indian Creek. It hit the market last September asking $25 million before undergoing several reductions.
The Jills of Coldwell Banker represented the seller.
It’s been "remodeled and expanded," per the press release, and dates back to 1937. There’s an 8,000-square-foot main house, two-bedroom guest house, and caretakers cottage.
It's the second priciest sale on the beach this summer, according to Redfin data. A home at 2920 North Bay Road sold for 19.95 million in July.
Some rather interesting features:
- The home has been wired with 2015 smart house integration by Crestron and Lutron
- Custom-crafted iron staircase railings grace the foyer
- Media room with "an old world pub."
- 1,000-bottle stone-clad wine cellar
- Children’s playground
- Sensational gourmet kitchen
- 7,000-gallon koi pond
- 22,000-gallon swimming pool and 2,000-gallon jacuzzi
- His and hers cabana baths
- Dual garage complex with custom designed auto collectors garage lighting
- Full-sized professional indoor gym including an oversized Roman Jacuzzi hot tub, steam room and separate spa massage room
Rodriguez, who won a World Series in his lone season with the Marlins and could be inducted into the Hall of Fame next year, purchased the home in 2001 for $5 million before selling in 2006 for $8.05 million.
I highly recommend taking the full tour, either by photos or drone (above).
