A Sunset Islands mansion is on the market with an asking price of $19 million.

The three-story, 9,696-square-foot Mediterranean estate underwent $2 million in renovations over the last two years, according to Thursday’s written announcement from Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. Coldwell’s Jill Eber and Jill Hertzberg are co-listing the 1525 West 24th Street property with Gilles Rais of the firm’s Gilles Rais Fine Homes Team. Rais is based in Coldwell’s Fort Lauderdale office.

Charles Fouad Mejjati Alami and his wife Orianne Collins own the mansion, according to Miami-Dade County records. The couple acquired the property through bankruptcy court for $8.4 million in May 2012.

The home has seven bedrooms, eight full bathrooms and two half-bathrooms. Other features include dual two-car garages, dockage that can accommodate a mega-yacht and six custom-made Fendi Casa chandeliers that are valued at about $1 million, according to Coldwell. Interior furnishings are not included in the asking price but are available for purchase. — Eric Kalis
