Colombian singer Silvestre Dangond just closed on land in Pinecrest where he’s planning to build a mansion with a recording studio.
The Latin Grammy-nominated singer paid $1.22 million for the 38,000-square-foot lot at 5750 Southwest 91st Street, property records show. Francisco Mendez sold the property.
Dangond plans to build a 10,000-square-foot home on the site, according to Marianna Dubinsky of Engel & Völkers Miami. He also just listed his home at 5975 Southwest 102nd Street for $4.6 million. Dubinsky is representing him in both deals.
The new house will feature seven bedrooms, eight-and-a-half bathrooms, six walk-in closets, maid quarters, a home theater and a pool deck with a man-made beach and a spa.
A number of celebrities have owned homes in Pinecrest, including current and former Miami Heat players Dwyane Wade, Chris “Birdman” Anderson and Dion Waiters.
Dangond and his wife paid $3.9 million for their home on 102nd Street in 2016, according to property records. The 6,700-square-foot, six-bedroom house features a private master suite with a large terrace overlooking the pool and deck, a summer kitchen and more than half an acre of trees and landscaped grounds.
Dangond, whose albums are produced by Sony Music Colombia, has been nominated four times for Latin Grammy awards and eight times by Premios Nuestra Tierra, a Colombian award.
