Versace-inspired Fort Lauderdale home asks $27.5M

The seller of the seven-bedroom Fort Lauderdale home also designed Casa Casuarina (the Versace Mansion) in Miami Beach.

The two-story home of the designer behind Casa Casuarina—known as the Versace Mansion in South Beach—is on the market.

Katia Bates is selling her house for $27.5 million with her husband, Tom.

While the Fort Lauderdale waterfront property does not include furniture as part of its asking price, it’s difficult to miss the stunning 18th and 19th century home decor.

The home has some of the same Venetian designs as the Versace mansion—soaring ceilings, stenciled wall plasters, marble floors, antique sconces and chandeliers, and mural ceilings inspired by Italian palaces.

The living room gives a full view of New River.

The seven-bedroom, twelve-and-a-half bathroom home has a guest house that includes a kitchen, family room, and two master bedrooms.

The 12,500 square feet home that’s next door to Las Olas Boulevard includes an office, a courtyard, bar, and gym. Other perks include two master closets, laundry room, club room, and library.

A tenant can park her boat at the dock or host a BBQ in the outdoor grilling area.

The annual estate tax for the property is $36,202. The property listing is by agents Christopher Wands, Pietro Balmonte, and Chad Carroll of Douglas Elliman.
