Al Capone’s Miami Beach Mansion Is Up For Sale
He may have done some terrible things in his time, but it’s hard to doubt Al Capone when it comes to his house choices. Take a look at the incredible 93 Palm, a Miami Beach mansion which used to belong to the prohibition-era gangster and is now up for sale.
93 Palm is one of the oldest and most notorious estates in Miami. Built in 1922, Capone bought the mansion in 1928 as his warm weather retreat. Located in the exclusive Miami Beach’s Palm Island, the property sits on the waterfront of Biscayne Bay and offers a unique view of adjacent Hibiscus Island.
The property comes with 3 different buildings; the main villa, the guest house and the pool cabana. The 6,103 square feet, two-story main villa is constructed from wood and features stucco and drywall walls. The house central entrance opens up to a hall with a grand staircase leading to the upper floor, a living room to one side, and a kitchen/dining room in the back.
The main floor’s original features include a black- and-gold Art Deco powder room, 1920’s ceiling lights, and a period fireplace in the living room. The second floor has the same footprint as the first. Three out of four second-story bedrooms were designed with their own full bath and the bathroom fixtures and tiles style has been maintained.
Found in an ultra-exclusive neighbourhood on Miami Beach, 93 Palm shares its location with other multi-million dollar luxury homes, both grand and unique in their styles, from Art Deco and Miami Modernism to Mediterranean classic.
Al Capone’s former Miami Beach Mansion is being sold for around £11 million ($15 million). Head over to the 93 Palm Website to find out more.
