After receiving a covert communique from Billy Baldwin (not the actor Billy Baldwin, but another Billy Baldwin) that Shaquille O'Neal had finally sold his shaq on Miami's Star Island, Your Mama spent a little time digging around on the interweb to sort out the haps with dirty looking rock star Lenny Kravitz's recently rehabbed residence on Miami's guard gated Biscayne Point which had been listed for sale in late March of 2009 with an asking price of $2,850,000.
Well butter beans, believe it or not, without a single price reduction the 5,717 square foot house has been sold. According to listing information, the deal has yet to close but even in a slumping real estate market and despite many naysayers saying Mister Kravitz was real estate krazy a deal has been made.
Listing information reveals the house includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full and two half custom marble bathrooms, polished concrete floors and a custom wall of glass that slides open turning the living room into a giant covered porch. The back yard area has been completely tiled in some sort of expensive stone with a rectangular swimming pool and spa sunk between the house and the 1,100 square foot tiled dock.
Unfortunately, Lady Good Fortune is not smiling on Mister Kravitz up in New York City where he has been trying to unload his 6,000 square foot party penthouse on SoHo's cobble stoned Crosby Street. The 5 bedroom and 7 bathroom building topper has been for sale on and off for a good number of years with an asking price as high at $19,500,000 and as low as $12,000,000. Currently the asking price sits at $14,995,000.
UPDATE: Mister Kravitz got $2,450,000 for the property.
