New Miami Heat sharpshooter Ray Allen is a man of fine taste when it comes to living arrangements!
The 37-year-old ex-Boston Celtics guard, who signed with the World Champions in the summer, is living in a $50,000-a-month rental in one of South Florida’s most exclusive island enclaves, Gossip Extra has learned.
The nine-bedroom, 10-bathroom Mediterranean mansion opens up on a private beach fronted by a private bay in the gated Coral Gables neighborhood of Tahiti Beach.
Other features include formal dining and living rooms, sitting room and a custom library; marble and wood flooring; an elevator; a master suite with double door entry with a private sitting room and terrace, exercise room, sauna and spa bath.
“It’s as exclusive, secluded and luxurious it gets in South Florida,” said realtor Philippe Diener, who works the Coral Gables area.

Despite Allen’s presence with his wife and their five children, the house (at 5 Tahiti Beach Island Road) is for sale. It’s on the market for a whopping $13.9 million! The owner is healthcare investor Miguel Fernandez, CEO of MBF Healthcare Partners.
So, why would Allen rent, instead of buying a little something?
“People who rent in the luxury market don’t have any intention of staying for a long time,” said Diener. “It’s hassle-free.”
