Former Miami Marlins World Series hero Edgar Renteria paid $3.6 million for a house on Miami Beach’s Allison Island, where the retired infielder previously owned a home.

Renteria purchased the 4,000-square-foot 6341 Allison Road residence in a transaction recorded on July 7, according to Miami-Dade County records. Rolando and Bertha Santos sold the three-bedroom house to Renteria. The couple paid $295,900 for the property in 1990.

No financing was recorded.

Renteria sold another Allison Island property for about $8.3 million in January 2013.

Ancona Real Estate owner Peter Ancona represented the sellers. Sharon Parra of Realty World Executive Homes represented Renteria.

Buyer interest in the home was strong, Ancona told The Real Deal. The broker received 11 cash offers for the property.

“Our showings included A-list celebrities, international royalty, local developers, hedge fund managers and professional athletes,” he said. “Demand for the island and quality waterfront listings is strong.”

Renteria’s three-year stint with the Marlins was highlighted by his game-winning single in the 1997 World Series. — Eric Kalis
