Celebrity homes have always been a point of attention for people and one of the celebrity mansions that still manage to make traffic stop is late Gianni Versace’s Miami home which is situated on famous Ocean Drive, facing the Atlantic Ocean. Beautifully forged iron gates featuring the fashion label’s trademark logo guard the grand entrance to the amazing mansion which features 10 bedrooms that display a high dose of luxury, 11 baths featuring custom Italian marble, a personal Observatory room, a gorgeous pool that will steal all the attention and more. The house has been listed for the asking price of $125 million, so if you happen the have that kind of money laying around, the house could become your dream mansion.
The late fashion designer, Gianni Versace, who was shot to death on the steps of his mansion which is also known as ‘Casa Casuarina’, chose to go all original with the designs of his ‘crib’ and opted for fresco paintings on the walls, beautiful colors, all deluxe elements that combine classic elegance with a drop of opulence and an irrefutable high level craftsmanship.
The house built in the 1930s was purchased by Gianni Versace in 1992 and it’s been reported that the Italian fashion guru spent a whopping $33 million renovating the mansion to turn it into his dream house. That is still an impressive sum of money to spend on renovating even today, so no wonder that the house still maintains that classic, fantasy, chateau allure that has made the designer fall in love with the home. In 2009 the house was turned into a boutique hotel and restaurant and now the owner has decided to put the house on the market.
Each room has a different décor featuring hand painted frescoes on the walls and massive wood furniture that goes perfectly with every detail of the home. If you’re an outdoor person, you’re going to love the backyard which features a Versace logo path and a gorgeous 54-foot long mosaic tiled pool lined with 24K gold. This is definitely a dream house to own, so browse trough the pictures and see if you can help yourself from falling in love with the renowned mansion!
