Happiness begins in Miami: Joe Jonas, Sophie Turner buy Bay Point mansion

Bayfront home was formerly owned by Willy Chirino


Singer Joe Jonas and “Game of Thrones” actress Sophie Turner can finally eat cake by the bay after purchasing a Miami mansion.

The celebrity couple paid $11 million for the waterfront home at 4400 Island Road in Miami’s Bay Point community, The Real Deal has learned. The house previously belonged to Cuban-American musician Willy Chirino.

The purchase comes three months after the couple listed their 15,000-square-foot Encino mansion for $16.8 million. They’ve spent time in Miami, too. The Jonas Brothers filmed their music video for “Cool” in 2019.

The 10,416-square-foot Miami mansion, with six bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms, sits on a 0.4-acre lot. It was recently renovated and features indoor gardens, a koi pond, wine cellar, fireplace and pool.

The sellers are Luis Arguello Jr. and Sylvia Chamorro.

The property was listed in September 2020 for nearly $12 million. Dina Goldentayer of Douglas Elliman co-listed the house with Chamorro. Carl Gambino of Compass represented the buyer. Gambino did not respond to a request for comment. Goldentayer and Elliman declined to comment.

Built in 1980, the house last sold in 2014 for $4.2 million. Chirino owned it between 1992 and 2014, according to property records. Arguello, the seller, is chairperson and CEO of DemeTech, a Miami-based maker of surgical sutures, mesh and bone wax.

Bay Point, north of downtown Miami and the Miami Design District, has seen a bump in high-end home sales. In December, a former Goldman Sachs executive bought a waterfront home in the neighborhood for $11.3 million, setting a record for the community. That record was surpassed in May with the $17.4 million sale of 580 Sabal Palm Road.

Also in May, Jessica Goldman Srebnick and her husband, Scott Srebnick, sold their Miami Beach house and purchased a Bay Point home for $9.2 million.
