Â Billy Joel and his famous piano areÂ heading out of their La Gorce Island mansion in Miami Beach. Joel, who purchased the home for $13.5M in 2006 is asking $14.75M. At $1660 per s.f, this nearly 9000 s.f home has over 150 feet of water frontage on the Biscayne Bay. The Mediterranean style home hopefully will not sit on the market for a while like Joel's other investments. With the luxury market being so competitive and hot in Miami Beach Joel made what seems to be a good tactical decision to sell.Â
The MLS listing is fairly limited and does not show the kitchen, guest house or any bed rooms. I wish I could upload a virtual tour here but unfortunately one is not offered by the listingÂ broker. Although not confirmed, we're hoping the home is furnished with a gorgeous piano.This property, along with other celebrities homes are being closely monitored by myself and updates will be provided. Luxury homes are hot. Luxury condos (especially Setai with the recent record sale) are even hotter!
