Forbes reported that Hilda Maria Bacardi, the great, great-granddaughter of Bacardi founder Facundo Bacardí Massó, sold her 12-bedroom Coral Gables mansion for $19 million. She spent eight years overseeing the house’s construction and first put it up for sale before it was even finished, asking $18 million in 2014. That number bounced upward to $27 million in 2016.

The home, in the Cocoplum area of Coral Gables, sits on 1.3 acres at 300 Costanera Road and includes a wine cellar, a 100-foot dock along 400 feet of water frontage, a swimming pool and living quarters for staff.

Hilda Jacobson and Barbara Estela of Douglas Elliman had the listing.
