Marc Anthony paid $19M for Bacardi heiress’s Coral Gables estate

A coral gables estate that sold out earlier this month for $ 19 million—and broke the record for sales of single-family homes in the cocoplum subdivision in the process-was purchased by grammy-winner performer Marc Anthony, revealed the wall street journal on Friday.

the 21,000 square foot Mediterranean-style enclosure “casa costanera” was formerly owned by the heir of Bacardi Hilda. Maria Bacardi, sister of the President of the company Facundo Bacardi and granddaughter of the founder Facundo Bacardí Masso. built in 2016, the 1.3 acre property features 12 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, three kitchens, a lift, and a 480-foot water front. it was originally worth more than $ 27 million.

Hilda maria Bacardi, the great-great-granddaughter of the founder of Bacardi, Facundo Bacardi Masso, has spent the last eight years supervising the custom construction of the house, and first put the house on the market in 2014 before it was even completed. at that time, it asked for $ 18 million; by the time construction was completed in 2016, it had increased that demand price significantly, to $ 27 million. the new property purchase of marc anthony places him, by chance, about two miles from his ex-wife Jennifer Lopez (his handsome, former Yankee star Alex Rodriguez, lives just down the road), with whom he is still on good terms.
