Baseball Great Sells 12,000 Sq Ft, Miami Beach Mansion for Over $8 Million (PHOTOS)

Former World-Series winning Florida Marlins shortstop Edgar Renteria recently closed the sale of his brand-new, Spanish-Mediterranean styled mansion for $8.325 million. The seven-bedroom, 7.5-bath, bay front house located in the Indian Creek neighborhood in Miami Beach is sized at 12,000 square feet on a lot that spans nearly two-thirds of an acre. The “Barranquilla Baby,” as Renteria is known due to his Columbian heritage, custom built the mansion in 2012 to suit desires of even the most luxury-minded dweller.
The house faces over 200 feet of waterfront property with enhanced viewing thanks to the enormous wraparound porch. Top-flight amenities also include a wine cellar, fully outfitted (and huge!) wood-paneled closets, a mini-stadium styled in-home theater, and a full-service gym taking advantage of the copious Florida sunlight with wall-spanning windows. The large internal expanse is made more accessible with the inclusion of an elevator while the outdoors accommodates a private dock and below ground infinity swimming pool.
The hefty price tag broke real estate records for Allison Island when picked up in an all-cash purchase by MG Brown Co. LLC, though the mansion seems a steal given its original asking price of $8.9 million.

Lending, specifically FHA lending, is inching forward in favor of Miami Condos. Before President Trump pulls out any game-changers, I thought it would be the right time to reflect on a Bill passed into law by President Obama this August. The...
