Mexican Family Buys the Property for $2.7 Million
A Mexican family just snapped up the home of famed nightclub mogul Roman Jones for $2.7 million. The 6,660-square-foot unique home located at 1200 W 63 St. in Miami Beach sat on the market for more than a year and a half until Prestige Realty Group secured the buyer. Douglas Elliman listed the residence on January 15th, 2015 for $3.895 million and it closed October 20th 2016.
“This house sat on the market for some time but the key is to find the right buyer,” said Tony Rodriguez-Tellaheche, broker and co-founder of Prestige Realty Group. “We have helped several families from Mexico find beautiful homes this year and are finding that significant purchases on primary residences made by Mexican buyers have not waned.”
Jones was the former managing partner of the now defunct Opium Group and son of former rockstar Mick Jones who founded Foreigner. Mick Jones is also famous for writing 80s rock ballads such as “I Want to Know What Love Is” and “Waiting for a Girl Like You.” The luxury home is draped in Ipe wood and synthetic turf. It has interesting features such as a giant tiki hut and elephant tusks in the living room of the home.
"The buyers were looking to relocate from a condo to a home with a larger lot for their kids. They plan to do minor renovations but keep the unique nature and natural charm of the home,” said Delainy Quintero of Prestige Realty Group who represented the buyers. “They own other investment homes in Miami, but this will be their primary residence."
