The South Beach, Fla., mansion once owned by Italian designer Gianni Versace and the place he was fatally shot is headed for the auction block.
Fisher Auction Company is handling the sale, set for Sept. 17. The 23,000-square-foot oceanfront mansion had previously been listed for $125 million.
Originally built in 1930, the 10-bedroom, 11-bathroom, gated home features a 54-foot-long mosaic pool lined with 24-karat gold. It also includes numerous frescos, ornate statues, arched doorways and an open-air courtyard.
“We are very pleased to have the opportunity to manage the sale of this one-of-a-kind property,” said Lamar Fisher, President and CEO of Fisher Auction Company, who said the sale should draw prospective buyers from around the world.
The property had been operating as a 10-room boutique hotel for several years but closed this year. A bankruptcy court has appointed Fisher Auction Company to handle the sale, in conjunction with Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate.
