JUST LISTED | 93 Palm Ave, Miami Beach, Florida - Al Capone's former Miami Beach Mansion restored to its glory and ready for its new owner.

A rare opportunity to own a piece of American history – the former waterfront mansion of the infamous prohibition-era gangster, Al Capone. Located on guard-gated Palm Island and overlooking pristine Biscayne Bay, 93 Palm has been carefully restored with the utmost attention to details and the sole purpose of preserving the timeless grace and historical appeal of this magnificent waterfront estate.

Secluded with century-old trees and lushly manicured grounds, providing the ultimate intimate lifestyle are the 4-bedroom 3-bath main house, the pool cabana with delicate mosaic-tile bath, and the 2-bedroom 1-bath gatehouse. Relax by your private beach, the remarkably large and heated pool, or any of the many porches while breathing and remembering history like-no-other. The gatehouse, now turned guesthouse, comes with two bedrooms, one bath, and a large family room with a fireplace. As you pass the guesthouse and enter the property, on your right you will spot the original pond with a grotto lighthouse and a bridge made of red coral. Sitting centrally on the expansive 30,000-sf lot is the main villa. With its simple yet elegant design, the 2-story house features a beautiful living room with a front and back covered loggia, bright and spacious family room – also with loggia, large eat-in kitchen, and four sun-drenched bedrooms. Some of the original features include the black-and-gold Art Deco powder room, the fireplace in the living room, and the porch. French doors, wood floors, columns, open archways, and multi-pane, double-hung windows complete the enduring look of the interiors of main house. As you walk outside and towards the waterfront you will catch a glimpse of the almost ageless-looking pool cabana towering over the enormous pool - standing still, persisting time, preserving history! A spiral staircase will take you up where you will find two same size rooms - one bedroom and one full bathroom. Next to the pool cabana, a private beach with swaying palm trees offering space to rewind, relax, and enjoy beautiful water views.

Story has it that Al Capone bought this waterfront home because “it reminded him of the sunny shores of Italy.” He used the property as a getaway-home from his life as a big-time gangster in Chicago, until he died in his bedroom in 1947. At Al Capone’s time, the pool at 93 Palm was the largest private pool in Florida. The size of the pool measures 30 feet by 60 feet and was built to beat the Biltmore Hotel’s record pool for largest pool in the area. Now a prominent landmark of history, 93 Palm is offered for sale at $14,900,000.
