Matt Damon has finally sold his one-acre property on Biscayne Bay in Miami Beach for $15.375 million. Lucky buyer is Patrick Markert, CEO of the Atlanta-based AmeriSave Mortgage. The waterfront property was originally listed for $20 million on April 11, 2013, but was later reduced to $18,999,000 late last year. The Mediterranean-style compound, built in 1935 and since updated, includes a main residence, a guesthouse, a pool and spa, a pool house with a summer kitchen and a rooftop terrace, 170 feet of water frontage and a dock on an acre overlooking Biscayne Bay.
The 12,705-square-foot home with seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms is surrounded by an eight-foot tall, palm tree-lined security wall.
The two-story main house, with dark hardwood flooring, detailed molding and wainscoting, features a gourmet kitchen, a theater room, an office, a wine cellar, seven bedrooms and 9.5 bathrooms.
An oversized living room centers on ocean views. The master bedroom features a spa-like bathroom with a free-standing soaking tub and dual vanities. The guesthouse adds an additional two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Damon bought the property in 2005 in two separate transactions for a combined total of $14.5 million. His former neighbors there include Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Calvin Klein and Alex Rodriquez.
Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber of Coldwell Banker Previews International were the listing agents.
