Grammy Award-winning record producer and rapper Timbaland bought a mansion in Coral Gables, property records reveal.
The musician, singer, songwriter and DJ purchased the home at 5400 Hammock Drive in his name, Timothy Z. Mosley. Luxury homebuilder Balli Development Group, led by Giorgio Balli, sold the property.
Timbaland, who’s worked with artists such as Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, Rick Ross, Madonna, Drake and Jay-Z, paid $7.95 million for the seven-bedroom, 8,600-square-foot home in the Gables.
Stefano Balli of Compass’ Audrey Ross team represented his father, the developer. Balli declined to comment on the buyer’s identity. Toni Schrager and Sandra Metrakos of Brown Harris Stevens in Miami represented Timbaland.
Stefano Balli worked on designing and developing the home with Giorgio Balli. It was completed in August. The mansion, in the gated Hammock Lakes community, features imported marble, granite and custom woodwork. It’s surrounded by mature oak trees and other native landscaping.
The non-waterfront house was listed for nearly $8.6 million.
Nearly two years ago, Timbaland sued to evict a failed buyer of his mansion at 10395 Southwest 67th Avenue near Pinecrest. Property records show the rapper still owns the house.
Timbaland also closed on a double unit at Aria on the Bay in Miami’s Arts & Entertainment District in January 2018.
