Cashing Out of Cocoplum: Marc Anthony Lists His Gables Estate for $27 Million
Based purely on the amount of news coverage it garnered, the biggest event in Coral Gables as 2020 wound down was the listing of Latin superstar Marc Anthony’s mansion for $27 million. Located in Cocoplum, the three-story, 12-bedroom, 21,000-square foot home with 480 feet of waterfront was designed by architect Rafael Portuondo.
The story of the sale appeared in media platforms, from Yahoo! Finance, Architectural Digest, the Real Deal, Variety and Hola! USA to MarketWatch, Celebrity Net Worth.com, EliteAgent.com, Forbes and The New York Post. Most made note of the $8 million price hike.
Anthony, whose real name is Marco Antonio Muñiz, is a singer, songwriter, actor, record executive and TV producer. He bought the estate from Hilda Maria Bacardi, the great, great granddaughter of Facundo Bacardí Massó (founder of the Bacardi spirits empire) in 2018 for $19 million. Does that mean that the top selling salsa artist of all time is leaving the Gables? That depends on whether ex-wife Jennifer Lopez continues to quarantine at the nearby mansion of fiancée Alex Rodriguez, where they have been raising the twins of Lopez and Anthony along with Rodriguez’s kids.
