The Late Gianni Versace’s Grand Miami Mansion Up For Sale
On September 17th, the legend that is Gianni Versace’s fabulous Miami mansion will go up for auction and we can’t believe how exquisite it really is…
The auction will take place inside the residence which is a whopping 23,000 square-foot property. £21 million was spent on renovation for the house and it certainly shows. Although Gianni’s passing away left a massive scar on the family, including our beloved Donatella as well as the fashion industry and the public as a whole, Gianni left a great legacy behind. This mansion is just a small piece of that legacy and whoever manages to win the auction is a lucky, lucky person!
Is Drake a Potential Buyer?
So who exactly will manage the £49 million asking price? I wouldn’t be surprised if rapper Drake was interested. His recent song, ‘Versace’ with Mingo is a huge hit everywhere. If you haven’t had a listen, some of the lyrics include “Versace, Versace, we stay at the mansion when we in Miami. The pillows Versace, the sheets are Versace…” Hmm. Could that be a hint that ‘The Motto (YOLO)’ rapper is thinking of calling the palace his new home? Considering his countless sell-out tours and #1 albums, if he wanted to, I’m pretty sure he could manage it.
Whether it is Drake or another mysterious bidder who gets the mansion, what will they be in for? A treat, that’s for sure. A 54-foot mosaic pool surrounds the property, decorated in 24 carats of gold, as well as marble statues and beautifully decorated bedrooms with the finest materials. If that’s enough, gold Versace emblems will be everywhere, including on the plant pots! The house itself also sits waterfront on Ocean Drive, in a gated community (obviously). Sounds like paradise!
