The Jills Ace the Sale on Anna Kournikova's Sunset Island Home
Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s “The Jills®” Ace the Sale on Sunset Island Home
Anna Kournikova’s Sunset Island Home Sold for $7.4M
Miami, Fla. (February 3, 2012) - Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate’s #1 real estate team in Florida, The Jills®, Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg, are proud to announce the sale of their listing at 2345 Lake Avenue in Miami Beach, formerly owned by professional tennis player and former trainer on the television show “The Biggest Loser,” Anna Kournikova. The estate, which was represented by The Jills® for less than nine months, sold for $7.4 million after purchasing the property for $5 million in 2000.
“Anna was simply delightful to work with,” said Jill Eber. “The home itself had very unique features, and anytime we are fortunate enough to have a listing of this caliber, it requires extensive marketing to attract unique clientele. As has been touted in the media, we had quite a few foreign buyers who viewed the property and a South American buyer that ultimately decided to purchase.”
The 6,630 square foot, ivy-covered, waterfront home on prestigious Sunset Island has 7 bedrooms, many with views of the water and pool, along with 8 bathrooms. Perfect for outdoor living, the home boasts a covered entertaining area with barbeque and a heated pool and Jacuzzi surrounded by a coral rock pool deck. Guests will enjoy staying in the 2-story guest house with a separate living space and kitchen on the first floor, and spacious suite on the second floor.
“Anna’s now-former home is just stunning and we were very pleased to work with an excellent buyer for it,” added Jill Hertzberg. “It takes an unusual and aggressive marketing plan to achieve these results as a good portion of our buyers are foreign, including the buyer on this property. We have multiple agents on our team that speak over 6 languages and that has helped us enormously in attracting existing and new buyers in our market. Beautiful, pristine and immaculate, the home reflected Anna's tasteful style."
Other outstanding features of this estate include a sauna, large dock on 156 feet of dazzling waterfront, an abundance of French glass doors leading outside, keystone and marble interior finishes, coral rock and keystone exterior accents and lush landscaping with a parade of Royal Palms surrounding the property.
Located on the idyllic and guarded Sunset Islands, the home is the perfect setting for enjoying Miami's coveted, vibrant tropical lifestyle, and just minutes from world-renowned South Beach and easy access to expressways, Downtown Miami and Miami International Airport.
