MIAMI BEACH — Latin crooner Julio Iglesias, 73, has listed four adjacent waterfront lots on Miami’s ultra swanky Indian Creek Island for a heart-stopping $150 million.
The singer, who has sold 350 million records worldwide, has a net worth valued at $300 million.
The lots span 7.3 acres with 800 feet of ocean side access, a private marina and spectacular views of Biscayne Bay. The area, which includes gated access, is populated by under 100 residents and features an 18-hole golf course, as well as its own private police force.
According to listing agents Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg, known to the Miami glitterati as The Jills, the Spanish songster had “held onto the lots for his children, but they have settled all over the country, and he felt like it was time to sell.”
The two of the lots have been owned by Iglesias since 2000, while the third and fourth lots were acquired in 2012 and 2014, for $14.8 million and $21.6 million, respectively. The singer also owns a fifth property on the island with a mansion, which he bought in 2008 for a paltry $7,000,000. He spends roughly two months a year there.
The area, known as Billionaire Bunker, given the number of wealthy residents, houses Former Miami Dolphins head coach Don Shula; hedge fund tycoon Eddie Lampert, who paid $38.4 million for his 17,000-square-foot estate in 2012; automobile mogul and former Philadelphia Eagles owner Norman Braman; and investor Carl Icahn, an advisor to Donald Trump, who bought a 14,000-square-foot foreclosed property in 1997 for $7.5 million.
Retired professional basketball player Marko Jarić and Victoria’s Secret model Adriana Lima, who divorced last year, own a slightly less impressive homestead, which they purchased in 2009 for mere $9 million.
Other divorced couples, such as supermodel Elle Macpherson and billionaire real estate magnate Jeff Soffer shared a 30,000-square-foot abode on the island until going their separate ways earlier this year. While Dutch businessman Geert-Jan Bakker paid $9.3 million for a 8,000-square-foot house in 2010, which he bought from power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z, who owned the property for approximately 3 years, paying $7.6 million.
