Calvin Klein is reportedly looking to sell his Miami Beach home.

The fashion designer is moving and has a Hollywood Hills, California house under contract, Page Six reported.

“Not to compare apples to oranges, but Miami Beach is a resort,” Klein told Page Six. L.A. is where people work, not only in the entertainment business, but all different walks — the social media world — it’s a new experience.”

Klein has owned the six-bedroom, six-bathroom home at 4452 North Bay Road since December 2005, according to Miami-Dade County property records. He paid an undisclosed price for the property. The 5,802-square-foot house was built in 1929 and sits on a 16,709-square-foot lot.

He won’t sell to “just anyone,” Page Six reported.

“It may sound crazy, but I wouldn’t sell it to just anyone. It would break my heart. I hate to use the word ‘unique,’ but I have never seen another house like it . . . I want to sell it to someone who appreciates the aesthetic.”

North Bay Road has been home to celebrities such as Ricky Martin and Matt Damon. And in January, the founder of Chicken Kitchen listed his newly built home at 5004 North Bay Road for $36 million. [Page Six] — Katherine Kallergis
