Julio Iglesias pays $15.2 mn for Miami mansionApril 10th, 2012 - 10:50 am ICT by IANS
Washington, April 10 (IANS/EFE) Spanish singer Julio Iglesias has just bought a $15.2 million mansion on an exclusive island in north Miami’s Intracoastal Waterway, The Miami Herald reported.
The 68-year-old singer is revving up the Indian Creek Village real estate market with his purchase of the 510 sq m home, which he will then dwarf by building a far bigger mansion on an adjoining plot of land he owns valued at $7.2 million.
Iglesias plans to renovate the mansion-plus-yachting wharf that he just made his own and settle there late this year with wife Miranda Rijnsburger and their five kids - Miguel Alejandro, 14, Rodrigo, 13, Victoria and Cristina, 10-year-old twins, and Guillermo, 4.
The singer, meanwhile, plans to supervise from his new home the construction on the adjoining vacant lot a 2,000-sq.-meter hacienda on the island off Miami Beach, an exclusive residential area with its own golf course.
“After a lifetime of traveling the world, I can say that Indian Creek is my favorite place on the planet,” Iglesias told The Miami Herald.
