Marc Anthony is the buyer of the $19 million Coral Gables mansion recently sold by a Bacardi family member.
Property records show Vici Amigo Estates LLC, a California-based company led by Marco Muñiz, a.k.a. Marc Anthony, bought the 12-bedroom, 21,000-square-foot, three-story mansion at 300 Costanera Road. The company financed the purchase with a $15.2 million mortgage from Bank of America.
The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will be only 2 miles away from his ex-wife, Jennifer Lopez, who is dating Coral Gables resident and former Yankees player Alex Rodriguez. Rodriguez owns a home on Ponce de Leon Road. Lopez also previously owned a home on North Bay Road in Miami Beach, which she sold to singer Phil Collins for $33 million in 2015.
Hilda Maria Bacardi, the great, great-granddaughter of Bacardi founder Facundo Bacardí Massó sold the Coral Gables property. She spent eight years overseeing its construction and first put the home up for sale before it was finished, asking $18 million in 2014. That number increased to $27 million in 2016.
Barbara Estela and Hilda Jacobson of Douglas Elliman had the listing for the 1.3-acre Cocoplum property. It includes a wine cellar, a 100-foot dock along 400 feet of water frontage, a swimming pool and living quarters for staff.
Bacardi’s main United States office is located in Coral Gables and Hilda’s brother and company chairman, Facundo, also owns a home in the city.
