Deceased American mobster Al Capone’s Miami Beach mansion hit the market this month for $6.85 million.
According to Alex Shay on MiamiBeachLuxuryRealEstate.blogspot.com, the home was first listed back in 2006 for $6.8 million. The property had two pending sales, but no closing ever took place.
The home at 93 Palm Avenue in Miami Beach, built in 1922, has six bedrooms and five bathrooms according to its listing on Trulia.com. The property is over 6,000 in square footage and is on a 0.69 acre lot.
According to PBS.org, Capone arrived in Miami from Chicago in 1928, not long after being named “the greatest gang leader in history” by the New Yorker. Miami was less than welcoming to a man with such a reputation, they called his mansion “a menace to the safety and well-being of residents.”
Still orchestrating crime across the country, Capone was unable to be completely evacuated. He spent time in prison and stints in other regions, but died in the Miami Beach mansion in 1947, according to miamiarchives.blogspot.com.
93 Palm Avenue is listed by Enrigue Tejera of Keller Williams Miami Beach Realty.
