The Jills are proud to announce a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to obtain one of the most valuable properties on the market: the iconic Casa Casuarina, better known as the Versace Mansion, is going to auction at 10am this September 17. In what’s been called the auction of a century, this South Beach masterpiece will be auctioned off with all its designer furnishings and fixtures intact.
To qualify, bidders must make a $3 million deposit and show proof of funds of no less than $40 million. Once the highest bidder is emerges, he or she must immediately tender a 10 percent deposit. Considering that the home was once on offer for as much as $125 million, this is an exceptionally generous level of entry that could potentially pay dividends.
What’s on offer is well worth the stakes. First built in 1930, Casa Casuarina has long been a staple of world-class design and opulence. Every inch of this sumptuous mansion features the world-class appointments, decorations, and finishes of the world’s finest artisans and designers. The late Gianni Versace invested over $33 million to create Mediterranean-inspired style that’s like nothing else on the market.
The interior includes hand-painted walls, multicultural accents, stunning ceiling frescos, and a unique design that characterizes every individual room. There are a total of 10 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, spanning an immense living area of over 23,400 square feet. Needless to say, you’ll have more than enough room to host the many guests and social gatherings that are sure to follow upon purchasing this Ocean Drive icon.
The property was also designed with South Florida beachfront living in mind: gorgeous and expansive outdoor areas help make the most of the area’s year-round warmth and sun. Indeed, some of the most outstanding features can be found in the outdoor living space, which features a 24 karat gold-lined pool and a well-manicured courtyard complete with contemporary art pieces. Serene, elegant, and lavish, this outdoor enclave is an excellent place to unwind.
Located on 1116 Ocean Drive, the Versace Mansion is one of the few Miami Beach Homes to be located in this world-famous boulevard. In addition to all its peerless luxurious and comforts, this pinnacle of luxury is just a few minutes away from the finest beaches, clubs, restaurants, and boutiques in South Florida.
