Ricky Martin's Former Home
Ricky Martin, known for his pulsating hits like "Livin' la Vida Loca"
and his frost-and-tip-kit-inspired 'do, owned this home from 2004 to
2006, when he sold it for $15 million. Three years
later, it's back on the market for $26.9 mil.Martin's former residence
is steeped in history. Once the site of a 9,000-square-foot midcentury
house owned by Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton, the property belonged
to actor Michael Caine and his wife, Shakira (not the pop singer), from
1976 to 1987, according to SF Gate's 2006 account of Martin's property
sale. The buyer before Martin bought the midcentury house and demolished
it, building the home that stands today.The new home features 12 baths,
a large family room, a gourmet kitchen, a master suite with
his-and-hers baths, a gym and four additional bedroom suites. There's
also a guesthouse and tennis court on the property.
