Hollywood actor Matt Damon’s old Florida mansion for sale
Having been The Departed from this house for almost two years, Matt Damon has finally captured a buyer for his luxury Miami Beach waterfront home.
Now living in Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades on the same street as his mate, Ben Affleck, since leaving Florida, Damon has recently starred in George Clooney’s The Monuments Men and Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar. He is currently starring in a science fiction film in Budapest, The Martian, based on the novel by Andy Weir. The film is set to be released in November, 2015.
Matt met Argentine-born Luciana Bozán Barroso in Miami in 2003 while she was working as a bartender and he was filming Stuck on You. They married in 2005, purchased double lots on La Gorce Island for $14.5 million that included a 1935 Mediterranean-style house that they updated to reflect their own style. The privacy and security of the island has attracted many celebrities in the past such as Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, Calvin Klein and Ricky Martin.
Matt and Luciana have four children and renewed their marriage vows in Saint Lucia in the spring of 2013, renting out the entire Sugar Beach resort for $600,000. The star-studded guest list included Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and Don Cheadle. The ceremony was officiated by Damon’s good friend, and occasional arch enemy, Jimmy Kimmel.
Originally listed in April, 2013 for $20 million, the Mediterranean-style mansion looks like Old Florida glamuor but with an updated modern interior containing 12,705 square feet with seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, home theater and custom office. With 170 feet of water frontage on Biscayne Bay, the estate also has a boat dock and views of downtown Miami. The Atlantic Ocean beaches and multi-million dollar Miami Beach condos and luxury hotels are just a few blocks away. Matt’s former neighbours include Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Calvin Klein and Alex Rodriquez.
Originally priced at $20 million, with no takers and continuing to lounge on the market, it was reduced toward the end of 2013 to $18.999 million. The luxury Florida property finally went under contract on December 2014, with a final sale price of $15.4 million.
