A waterfront home formerly belonging to alleged mobster Chuck Delmonico has been listed for $8.1 million, The Real Deal has learned.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home is in Miami Beach’s San Marco Island, and includes marble floors, an open balcony and a Florida room, according to listing agent Julian Johnston.

Johnston, of Calibre International Realty, said the Venetian Islands property is being sold for the land, and the listing reads, “build your dream home.” The 13,382-square-foot lot features 105 feet of water frontage and a dock.

Delmonico, who changed his name from Charles Tourine Jr., was the son of Charles Tourine Sr., one of the New York Genovese family’s top members, according to Mafia Today. He was under investigation until after he died of natural causes in 2008, according to published reports. The “Delmonico Crew” was charged with racketeering, operating illegal gambling businesses and transporting stolen property, among other crimes.

In 2003 he pleaded guilty in connection to a scheme to have members of the mob settle disputes related to gains from a boiler room stock operation, according to Mafia Today. He served probation for one year.

The existing 4,893-square-foot home was built in 1938, according to Miami-Dade property records. Delmonico sold it to Virginia and Luis Dominguez in 2003 for $1.7 million. He bought it in 1976 for $115,000.

Not far away, on Palm Island, Al Capone’s former mansion is getting a facelift and a new life as a production, filming and photo shoot venue. A wealthy, Northern Italian industrialist family bought the storied property at 93 Palm Avenue in April 2013 for $8 million. Since then, MB America, a Miami-based property investment firm that represents the owner, has been renovating the Mediterranean-style estate.
