Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
For the past several days, news on buying the Versace Mansion by Victoria and David Beckham have been floating around major media outlets (UK MSN Money, Miami Herald). To provide a little bit of professional real estate insight, Marcela Catapano Criscito of The Criscitos International Luxury Real Estate Group who runs BuyMiami.net sat down to a brief interview on the issue.
The Versace Mansion and the Beckhams
The Beckham’s may or may not have purchased the Versace Mansion. At this point, reports are conflictual. For people who want some insight from a knowledgeable professional, the below quote offers a bit of information on why the rumor of the purchase is creating so much buzz.
“This (the mansion) is a famous place. It’s one of Ocean Drive’s main tourists destinations. Gianni Versace’s Mansion is actually one of the most photographed houses in all of North America.”
This piece of Miami real estate is located in the heart of SoBe Ocean Drive, one of the most active entertainment and nightlife areas in Miami. The mansion, reportedly purchased for $50 million, “might not be the best place” for a family like the Beckhams, says Marcela Catapano Criscito.
Luxury South Beach Real Estate Options
South Beach island real estate might just be a better option for people who consistently remain in the public eye. After years of finding the rich and famous the perfect home, Marcela Catapano Criscito of The Criscitos International Luxury Real Estate Group that runs BuyMiami.net had this to say about the potential purchase and other real estate options in the area.
“Although she (Victoria Beckham) wears Versace designed clothing and likely loves the idea that she could live in a house that used to belong to a person who she admires. I don’t think that the Versace Mansion is a good place to live in when it comes to their daughter and three sons. It is just too public, too noisy, too exposed. SoBe Ocean Drive is not the place to live with your family.
“This is especially true if you are a celebrity. Usually celebrities of their level buy properties on Miami South Beach Islands like the Venetian, Hibiscus, and Star Islands. Those areas are more private. They are waterfront properties, with places to dock a yacht and with stunning views of the Miami Skyline.”
Rumors continue to spread about the purchase of the famed mansion. One thing is certain, the rich and famous are coming to Miami, but where they purchase is up for debate. The beauty of areas like the Venetian Islands in South Beach continue to draw the famous (and their money).
