Superstar Cher's former house in Miami has recently been sold for an eye-watering $17 million. Located on the exclusive La Gorce Island in Miami Beach, the property still very much has Cher's stamp on it.
It might surprise you to know that the actress and singer is also a talented property flipper. She has graced the covers of interior design and architecture magazines all over the world. This property with many of its architectural features still intact offers us a window into the starlet's eye for design.
Cher bought the home in 1993 and filled the space with what she called decorative 'clutter', a collection of religious art, rich-deep-hued fabrics and carved wood. She sold the property three years later for almost triple the price she’d originally bought it for. Is there anything the goddess of pop can't do?
The property is a little different from its days with Cher. Now it is a clutter-free haven full of minimalist clean lines. However, the Moorish architecture Cher was a fan of is still intact in the arches and fireplace.
Overall, the property is an impressive 11,460 square feet. The three-story home features six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and an incredible two-story living room.
There is a gourmet kitchen with a kitchen island and a fridge set up that would make a chef envious.
One of our favourite features is the 300-square-foot walk-in custom closet. However, equally luxurious is the sprawling cabana with a full bath offering views across the bay.
The property is viewed through a row of perfectly spaced palm trees, offering privacy without impacting the stunning view.
The mansion was originally on the market for $22 million with listing agent Lourdes Alatriste of Engel & Volkers, Miami, Coconut Grove. However, over the summer the price was dropped.
While the price might have dropped to $17 million, that is still an incredible jump from the $1.5 million records show Cher paying for the property in 1993.
