This is how the home of one of the most famous gangster’s home looks like from the inside!
Are you ready?
The interiors of Al Capone’s 1922 Mediterranean Revival estate on Palm Island have changed a bit since his death.
In August 2016, the estate went though some serious renovations spearheaded by Miami-based, Italian-run MB America.
According to them, they bought the estate for around $8 million and invested approx. $1.4 in renovations.
MB American co-founder and architect Monica Melotti led the architecture and design renovations of Capone’s mansion.
The renovations of the house had the sole purpose of video and audio production. So, Monica and her team did an amazing job maintain some of the original details of the property.
They kept the wooden multi-pane windows, the same windows with their original crank shaft mechanisms. As well as a black and yellow mosaic bathroom with original elements in the main entrance.
How big it is?
The L-shaped 6,077-square-foot main structure spreads on a 30,000 square-foot waterfront site.
Al Capone’s former home is awash in white, topped with white terra-cotta roof tiles, and accented with white awnings.
Some amenities include a red coral miniature lighthouse fountain with a bridge installed in a series of renovations made by Capone, a pool house with a bedroom and floor to ceiling mosaic bathroom, mini private beach and a seven-foot white cement wall perimeter.
When did he buy the house?
Al Capone came to Miami Beach in 1927 and bought the Palm Island property in 1928 from Clarence M. Busch.
Capone loved the property because it reminded him of the sunny shores of Italy.
Needless to say, Capone did not receive a warm welcome from the Miami authorities. Many people became outraged by his presence, leading to multiple questionable arrests of the man.
According to Paul George, Florida Governor Doyle Carlton told every leader in every county to do what they could to prevent the gangster’s move into Miami.
So,what do you say about this luxurious property?
