Fort Lauderdale attorney Anthony Russo and his wife Gina Russo have decided to sell their brand new waterfront Fort Lauderdale home with an asking price of $5.1 million.

Russo, a personal injury lawyer and founder of Russo Battista Law Group, completed the 6,018-square-foot, six-bedroom house in August and decided to relocate elsewhere, listing agents Dennis Stevick and Jill Johns told The Real Deal. Dale Atkins, also part of the DND Associates team of ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, is listing the property at 156 Fiesta Way with Stevick and Johns.

The Mediterranean-style house features contemporary interiors, a pool and spa overlooking a canal, 95 feet of waterfront and a concrete dock. LaVallee Construction built the home and Tuthill Architecture designed it.

“They had a great opportunity to relocate and this makes sense for them,” Stevick said, adding that they could be downsizing.

The Russos paid $887,500 for the 11,400-square-foot lot in early 2012 and took about three years to build the new home. Johns told TRD it would be “perfect for a yachter, especially with the boat show coming up.”

Russo is well known as a Democratic fundraiser, and the law firm’s website features photos of him with such political bigwigs as former President Bill Clinton, Vice President Joe Biden and former Florida Gov. Bob Graham.
