MIAMI BEACH Farewell, County Wade?
Former Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade and actress-wife Gabrielle Union kiss their Miami Beach pad goodbye. They just sold their waterfront mansion for $ 22 million.
An undisclosed acquired buyer the property at 5980 North Bay Rd., as first reported by The Wall Street Journal. The couple, who now live in Los Angeles, bought the six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in 2010 for around $ 11 million.
Originally built in 1940 by Director of Insurance Mel Harris, the two-story house was extended in 2006.
Family-friendly amenities include a game room with old arcade games, a cinema room, a basketball court, and an outdoor children’s area with a Jungle Gym and swimming pool. There is also a home office, wine cellar and bar for adults.
Despite high demand for luxury homes in South Florida, the home sold for about 20 percent less than its Listing price of $ 26.5 million. The Wades, married since 2014, have been trying to sell the place since 2019, when they put it up for sale for $ 32.5 million.
Douglas Elliman Realtor Brett Harris represented both the buyer and the seller. He declined to comment.
Buyers in California and New York have picked up real estate along North Bay Road, an upscale area of Miami Beach that offers views of the mainland across Biscayne Bay. Recent buyers include billionaire businessman Thoma Bravo and his wife Katy Bravo, Joshua Kushner and Karlie Kloss and Rande Gerber and model Cindy Crawford.
