Update: Mansion Where Versace Was Murdered Has Sold, Will Become a Hotel
The infamous Miami mansion where Gianni Versace was murdered in 1997 will go under the hammer at a bankruptcy auction on September 17, following this year’s $50 million price cut. The lavish 23,000-square-foot home, known as Casa Casuarina, had originally been marked at $125 million (making it the most expensive home on the market), but despite slashing the price to $75 million, the owners still couldn’t find a buyer. The estate, originally built in 1930, boasts 10 bedrooms, ornate decor, and a 54-foot long mosaic pool with 24-karat gold ornamentation.
The bidding will start at a 25 million, and the auction will be held at the mansion itself by Fisher Auction Company. “This is the trophy property of the century,” Mr Fisher said. Murder aside, we tend to agree.
Should you have $25 million sitting in the bank, or just want to gawk at the larger-than-life residence, get a private tour by watching the video below.
UPDATE: The Versace Mansion sold for a cool $41.5 million and the buyers are looking to turn it into a hotel.
