ROSIE O’DONNELL’S MIAMI MANSION: PEEK INSIDE HERE
Rosie O’Donnell is clearing out her real estate. This time, she is put her huge house on Miami’s Star Island up for sale. Gloria Estefan is her neighbor as well as many other celebs. And it is where Rosie hosted Barbra Streisand a few years ago. TopTenRealEstateDeals.com has the scoop…
Former talk show host just sold her Chicago home and has now listed her Miami Beach estate. Purchased in 1999 at the height of popularity of “The Rosie O’Donnell Show” for $6.75m., she put it on the market for $19.5m on the last day of her Oprah network cancelled talk show. Even though the county tax appraiser has it appraised at $8.04m. Since the purchase in 1999, some improvements have been made, though not publicly detailed.
Joining the unemployed masses, looks like Rosie is bailing out of extra real estate and will be living full-time in New York. She is now engaged to Michelle Rounds and probably will be “starting over” on a number of fronts.
The man-made islands between Miami and Miami Beach have been there for ions and are lush, private residential enclaves that are buffered from the Atlantic by Miami Beach, away from the noise, traffic and hordes of tourist revelors.
Rosie’s house is on the much coveted and charming Star Island with its quaint little guard house and oval street with mature tropical landscape.
Built in 1923, not long after the island was constructed by the Army Corp of Engineers, the house has 11,000sf on 1.1 waterfront acres with a dock and 203 feet of bayfront. Totally renovated, it has an up-to-date kitchen, new master suite with private office and terrace, new fireplaces and a swimming pool.
