It is rumored that Rudolph Valentino himself spent his winters in Miami during the early 1920s and slept in this 1910 landmark compound located at 1855 South Bayshore Drive in Coconut Grove. The property features three structures, including a two-story guest house and pool pavilion. The 11-bedroom, eight-bathroom Mediterranean-style compound, known as Villa Valentino, recently underwent extensive renovations. The home retains much of its original architectural details, such as a grand great room with pecky cypress ceilings, covered loggia, a tower, a courtyard and original tile lend panache. There are four separate air conditioning and heating systems, updated electric and plumbing systems, new fixtures, refurbished bathrooms and kitchens, new roofs and impact-resistant windows. The home sits on .5 acre and features a pool, garden and bay views. The 8,155 square-foot two-story residence has built-ins, a circle driveway, parking for six cars, as well as marble, Terrazzo and ceramic floors.
