MI­AMI SOUND MA­CHINE

Uxbridge Gazette - - Property Talk -

There have been some weeks re­cently when the UK charts run­down on Ra­dio 1 ev­ery Sun­day have sounded much more rumba than rock and roll.

One of the main rea­sons for this has been the suc­cess of Colom­bian-born singer Shakira, whose Latin pop hits such as Hips Don’t Lie and When­ever, Wher­ever, have made her a su­per­star both in the UK and al­most ev­ery other coun­try in the world.

Shakira is cur­rently on a global tour which re­cently in­cluded a one-nighter at the O2 in Lon­don. But while belt­ing out the hits, she also has es­tate agents to deal with.

The 41-year-old is sell­ing her huge lux­ury Mi­ami home and down­siz­ing from three to two prop­er­ties; she has a house in Barcelona where she lives with her foot­baller part­ner Ger­ard Piqué and their sons, and a hol­i­day villa in the Ba­hamas.

Her 8,708 sq ft Mi­ami home over­looks the city’s water­front and comes with more than 100 feet of wa­ter frontage, a pri­vate dock and ocean ac­cess.

The six-bed­room, eight-bath­room home is two blocks from the Mi­ami Golf Club and on a street where sev­eral celebri­ties have lived in the past in­clud­ing Matt Da­mon, Cher, Billy Joel and Jen­nifer Lopez.

Since pur­chas­ing it dur­ing the early 1990s Shakira has ex­ten­sively re­fur­bished the two-story house in­clud­ing a new kitchen and a home gym where spe­cial floor­ing for danc­ing has been added.

It’s for sale through Dou­glas El­li­man Real Es­tate at $11.6 mil­lion.
