How the famous live: Singer Phil Collins said goodbye to the luxury palace he had bought from Jennifer Lopez
Music legend Phil Collins is the author of many unforgettable hits, such as Another Day in Paradise, In the Air Tonight or True Colors, and anyone who's ever heard those songs probably catches oneself humming them every now and then. The star of the music scene has sold his luxury seaside mansion in Miami Beach. His palace, which he polished to perfection over the years, is worth admiring.
Famous names at the Miami Beach address
The two-storey property was built in 1929 and is situated in Biscayne Bay. There are many beautiful properties in this area, each more spectacular than the last. Biscayne Bay is a meeting hub for celebrities, such as Will Smith, Leonardo DiCaprio, Russell Crowe and Ricky Martin.
The property includes a private marina
This mansion had previously been owned by a famous singer who has hot blood flowing through her veins and is a living proof of the saying that age is just a number: Jennifer Lopez. We could easily call it a palace. It stands proudly on 8,094 square meters of land, which includes a seafront that provides great views of Biscayne Bay. The property is surrounded by greenery and planted with palm trees. The icing on the cake is the private port, which belongs to the house.
Everything from a bar to a spa
Overall, the building is designed in a Mediterranean style with specific ostentatious elements. The owner really paid attention to every detail. Even the entrance to the hall itself, which boasts an elaborate rotunda-shaped ceiling, is astonishing. The interior is dominated by wood in the color brown or white and modern white accessories that fit together in design.
Inside, you'll find an incredible eleven bedrooms as well as ten bathrooms, a spacious kitchen, a dining area, a magnificent spiral staircase, fireplaces, a bar or a wine cellar. The mansion also has a media room, a spa for relaxing one's mind and gym for keeping one's body in shape.
An elevator, a piano and a giant cloakroom in which one can easily get lost
If you're wondering whether there's something missing in the property, we can tell you right away: no. The creators have really thought of everything. There's even an elevator if you feel too tired to walk up the stairs. The absolute cherry on top is the dressing room in the main suite, spanning over an area of 1,000 square meters. The owner was apparently a huge fashion enthusiast. The living area, for a change, boasts a black glossy grand piano. We wouldn't be surprised if the singer was kissed by a Muse in this place. He must have drawn a lot of inspiration for his songs here.
The dominant feature of the inner courtyard is a pond with a volume of 22,712 liters. The exterior also includes a long swimming pool, a hot tub, an outdoor terrace with barbecue facilities and an outdoor kitchen for preparing all kinds of specialties for famous guests.
The price is set high
Singer Phil Collins sold his impregnable palace for a nice round sum - 856 million crowns. The price has climbed to dizzying heights, seeing as Jennifer Lopez had once pulled almost 300 million crowns out of her pocket to score it. The singer himself bought the house for a much higher price; he paid 706 million crowns for it.
