The charming Miami home of Univision legend Maria Elena Salinas recently sold for $2.65 million, representing a little over a 23 percent discount from the original asking price.
Listing for $3.45 million in February of this year, the 4,057-square-foot estate was designed by Phineas Paist, the supervising architect for city founder George Merrick's Coral Gables Corporation who crafted elements of Villa Vizcaya, Deering Estate, and Coral Gables City Hall.
It’s located blocks from the Granada Golf Course, and has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. The European-style home includes a formal fireplace, an oversized covered terrace, a separate guest quarters, and a large living room with exposed beams. The home was purchased for $230,000 in 2001, records show.
Once described by the New York Times as “the Voice of Hispanic America,” Salinas was the co-anchor of Noticiero Univision from 1987 until this month, when she announced she was retiring from the network. She’s currently the host of an English-language series on the Investigation Discovery network called The Real Story with Maria Elena Salinas.
