By Martha Brannigan
The sale of ex-Marlin Edgar Renteria’s Mediterranean-style home on Biscayne Bay set a new record for the Allison Island area of Miami Beach.
Former Marlins’ baseball player Edgar Renteria sold his sprawling Mediterranean-style Miami Beach home for $8,325,000, a record for Allison Island.
The 7-bedroom, 7-1/2 bath home at 6633 Allison Road, was sold in an all-cash transaction to MG Brown Co. LLC, according to One Sotheby’s International Realty, which represented both the seller and buyer.
The home, which boasts an expansive 200 feet of waterfront on Biscayne Bay, was custom built for the Colombian-born ballplayer, according to One Sotheby’s vice president Kevin Tomlinson, who represented the buyer.
Amenities include an infinity pool, a wine cellar, a movie theater, and an elevator. The house is on a 25,682-square-foot lot with a private dock. Closing on the property, originally listed at $8.9 million, was Dec. 21, 2012.
"It’s a record sale for that island,’’ said Mayi de la Vega, owner of One Sotheby’s, who listed the property. “We’re finding the trophy properties are really performing the best."
