A-Rod Isn’t Giving Up His Miami Beach Mansion — Yet
The New York Yankees star has decided to hold on to his contemporary waterfront home — and it's easy to see why.
If you were hoping to practice your swing in this palatial waterfront mansion — complete with its own batting cage — think again. The home, along with its incredible water and city skyline views, is no longer on the market. Major League Baseball star Alex Rodriguez decided to hold on to the property on Biscayne Bay, according to The Real Deal.
A-Rod bought the home in 2010 for $7.4 million. Mayi De La Vega with ONE Sotheby’s International Realty listed the property last August for $38 million — quite the increase in price, but wait until you hear about all of the custom-designed features.
The gated 20,000-square-foot mansion has nine bedrooms, a commercial-sized elevator, home theater, rooftop deck, heated pool, full gym, Zen garden and 275 feet of water-frontage docks. Also home to NBA superstars Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh, the neighborhood on North Bay Road is a sports fanatic’s dream. Hmmmm, now we can see why A-Rod decided to hold on to the place — who would ever want to leave?
