Two more stars have officially joined Miami Beach’s Star Island. Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez closed on their waterfront mansion for $32.5 million.

The superstar couple are the buyers of 13 Star Island Drive, as previously reported by The Real Deal. The 10-bedroom, 15,011-square-foot home was on the market for $40 million. E&A Estates is the seller.

The property features 100 feet of water frontage, a pool with a Jacuzzi, cabana, covered bar and dock. The Mediterranean-style two-story estate includes a chef’s kitchen, library and wine room.

Jill Hertzberg and Jill Eber of the Jills Zeder Group at Coldwell Banker represented the seller, while Rodriguez’s sister, Arlene Susy Dunand, represented the buyers, according to the Multiple Listing Service. The sale closed on Wednesday.

On the same day, the house next door, 14 Star Island Drive, also sold for $24 million. Hertzberg and Eber also represented the seller of 14 Star Island Drive, Elisa Verastegui de Gosselin. The six-bedroom, 14,268-square-foot estate was built by Mexican developer and hotelier Carlos Gosselin. Ryan Mendell of Maxwelle Realty represented the buyer. He declined to comment.

Hertzberg declined to comment on both deals.

Lopez and Rodriguez’s purchase comes a year after Lopez had her 50th birthday party at Gloria Estefan’s waterfront mansion, also on Star Island. It also follows the $49.5 million sale of 22 Star Island, which Lennar Corp.’s Stuart Miller sold in July.

In early August, Rodriguez posted a photo on Instagram that appears to have been taken from the dock of 13 Star Island.

Lopez and Rodriguez recently listed their Malibu beach house for $8 million.

Rodriguez, who retired from the Yankees in 2016, is a major real estate investor. His Monument Capital Management has acquired more than $800 million worth of real estate in 14 states through opportunity funds and joint ventures.
