    The ‘Piano Man’ is Movin Out!’ Singer Billy Joel has sold his nearly 9,000 square foot Mediterranean Revival style mansion on Miami Beach’s swanky La Gorce Island for just under $14,000,000. Property records show the buyer is the deep-pocketed Italian billionaire shoe and handbag mogul Diego Della Valle, who founded and still owns a controlling interest in the Italian luxury leather goods brand Tods.

    Joel paid $13.5M in 2006 for the 8,880-square-foot Mediterranean-style home, set on a .67-acre slice of waterfront on the luxe, celeb-studded island of La Gorce.

    The home boasts expansive open areas with breathtaking views of the bay. Home amenities include a luxurious bar with wine cellar, gourmet chefs kitchen, formal living and dining room, office and sumptuous master suite, all of which showcase the finest details and finishes. A must have in Miami, the home has 165 feet of water frontage and room for new owner Valle’s yacht.
