Rock music recording artist Iggy Pop transferred title to a Coconut Grove house he bought for $4.1 million to his wife, Nina Alu, after selling a Palmetto Bay house at a loss.

The five-bedroom, five-bathroom house in a gated community has black limestone floors, a library, a 20-foot entryway ceiling and an outdoor entertainment pavilion with a barbecue area that overlooks a swimming pool and a canal.

Iggy, 71, whose real name is James Newell OSterberg Jr., married Alu in 2008 and bought the house in Coconut Grove in 2016.

He transferred title to the Coconut Grove house to his wife after selling another house in Miami suburb Palmetto Bay.

He sold the three-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom house in Palmetto Bay for $235,000 less than he paid in 2006.

The Palmetto Bay property occupies more than an acre and features an aviary, a tennis court, swimming pool and spa, waterfall, wine cellar and library.

Iggy bought the house for $1.46 million and sold it for $1.225 million in June. [NZCity]Mike Seemuth
