BEAUTIFUL CASA CASUARINA
An incredible look inside Gianni Versace’s world famous Versace Mansion, now called Casa Casuarina, this amazing property is an opulent gem in Miami...
The Miami Beach home of iconic fashion designer Gianni Versace is as glamorous as its owner despite ultimately becoming the location of his 1997 murder.
Recently on the market, and represented by Coldwell Banker Real Estate, the late designer Versace incorporated his artistic vision into the luxury mansion’s many expansions. The 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom, gated property is highlighted by a 54-foot long, thousand mosaic pool, lined in 24-karat gold, frescos, ornate statues and an open air courtyard. In true extravagant Versace style, the European craftsmen villa on Miami’s world famous Ocean drive boasts hand-painted walls and ceiling frescoes inspired by artists around the world, with custom tile mosaics, fountains, sculptures and chandeliers adoring every room and courtyard.
Built in 1930, the house is more like a trip back in time or a day out of the museum due to the intricate details and colorful designs overflowing from the real estate masterpiece that even has a 54-foot long mosaic-tiled 24K gold lined pool!
Versace both lived and died at the mansion, as he was tragically gunned down by Andrew Cunanan following a walk to pick up the morning papers on July 15, 1997.
