Christian Slater has paid $2.2 million for the Villa Dolce Far Niente, a three-bedroom home at 3618 St. Gaudens Road in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood, the Daily Business Review reported.

Built in the 1920s, the home hit the market in January, priced at $2.59 million and listed with Antonio Rios of Shelton and Stewart Realtors, according to Zillow.

The actor, best known for his role in the black comedy “Heathers,” was represented by Taylor Corey of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, which first announced the deal. The sale has not yet appeared in public records in Miami-Dade County.

The villa last sold for $1.8 million in August 2011, but the most recent owner renovated the home with updated plumbing, air conditioning and a pool, the listing said. The two-story property also features a guesthouse, a misted pool and patio area, and marble floors.

“It was a genuine pleasure to work with Christian and his fiancée Brittany [Lopez] to find them their perfect home,” Corey told the Daily Business Review.

Earlier this year, a home at 3825 Bayside Court in Coconut Grove — with the nickname “Fantasy Island” — sold for $4.7 million, as The Real Deal reported. [Daily Business Review]Leigh Kamping-Carder
