Al Capone's Historical Home in Miami Beach
Rumored to be the command center where "Scarface" planned the infamous St. Valentine's Day murders, a waterfront Florida estate formerly owned by Al Capone sold for $7.43 million.
The last living relative of Al Capone revisited the Miami Beach home in 2012 with a reporter from the Miami Herald. Even though it had been almost half a century since her last visit, Deirdre Marie Capone said the home still had many of its original features. The enormous swimming pool and waterfront cabana brought back vivid memories of her uncle and his lavish estate.
The gangster purchased the property in 1928 as a summer home for $30K and lived there until his death from syphilis in 1947, when his wife sold the seven-bedroom mansion.
Venezuelan architect and developer Luis Pons recently restored the historical home, which sold last month. The estate sits on a seven-acre lot on Palm Island, a highly sought-after location in Miami Beach.
