Casa Casuarina, had already been known as Versace Mansion, due to the Gianni Versace, the former head of Versace, the Italian fashion company.
Big houses, lovely gardens and amazing swimming pools is something that almost everybody has dreamt. And is everything it can be found in this Mediterranean Revival style Palace.
Commissioned and built in 1930 by Alden Freeman and bought by Jacques Amsterdam in 1937 after the first owner death. Just in 1992 Gianni Versace bought the place, converting the former apartment building named The Amsterdam Palace into his Miami mansion. Nowadays, after being bought by Barton G. in 1999, after Versace death, the mansion was converted into a boutique hotel, The Villa by Barton G.
Gianni after buying the estate he spent 33 million dollars on improvements, adding a south wing and a pool. This Italian Palace was first inspired by the Alcazar de Colon, where the family of Christopher Columbus once lived. This America’s Most Expensive Home was sold for $41,5 Million. By the time, every inch of architecture and interiors were totally Versace’s taste and the 23,000-square-foot mansion had 10 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, and a 54-foot-long mosaic pool lined with 24-karat gold.
Located in the heart of Miami Beach, this Palace had and have it all, an amazing view over the ocean and an incredible view for every morning wake up.
