Phil Collins Takes You Home: Inside the Rocker's Miami Beach Mansion
Phil Collins snapped up one of the grandest mansions on Biscayne Bay in 2015, but Jennifer Lopez's former home is on the market once again
It is unsurprising why this Old World Spanish-style property is so attractive to a host of star-studded celebrities, from Jennifer Lopez in 2002, to Phil Collins in 2015.
This tropical 1920s paradise neighbors the prestigious La Gorce Country Club. It boasts sunset views across the Miami skyline and comes with a wine cellar as standard.
However, following a dispute with his ex-wife, Orianne Cevey, the drummer left his 10,769-square-foot haven in the Sunshine State and recently listed the property for $40 million (£29.1 million).
Listed with The Jills Zeder Group, the home, which is now under contract, includes a chef's kitchen, a custom-designed walk-in closet, a spa, and an elevator to the second floor. Meanwhile, outside, the vibrant oceanic landscape stretches for 1.5-acres and includes a 6,000-gallon koi pond, a swimming pool, and a boat dock in case you want to spend an afternoon sailing on the Atlantic.

The interior of this property pays homage to the rich Iberian- style architecture, with the dark wood tiles complementing the striking arched arcades. On the ground floor, there is an open dining space, with sweeping views of the palm-tree kissed garden.
Moving into the chef’s kitchen, you will find a large island, racks of spices, and contemporary glass cupboards. There is also no need to worry about bottles taking up too much space, as they are preserved in the purpose-built wine cellar below.

You don't need to miss out on the Miami heat while cooking in this property, as it has a summer kitchen and outside bar area where you can prepare meals under the coastal sunshine. Then, after cooking and cocktail making in the summer kitchen, there is space on the cabana to drink and dine with a view across the glamorous city skyline.
The Spanish-style grandeur continues across its two-story rotunda foyer, which is crowned with a statement arty chandelier.
There is plenty of room for guests in this mansion, with a total of six spacious bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and a luxurious master suite. This Southern Florida mansion is complete with a gym, boasting all the essential equipment, including a treadmill and an exercise bike.
Which star is next to pick up Jennifer Lopez and Phil Collins' former hangout? Karlie Kloss, Tom Brady, and Cindy Crawford are reportedly among the individuals making a home for themselves in the Sunshine State, so could it be one of them? Only time will tell.
