Matt Damons Miami Beach Mansion Finally SellsPosted: January 5, 2015
Matt Damon has finally captured a buyer for his Miami Beach home. Now living in Los Angeles on the same street as his good buddy, Ben Affleck, Damon has recently starred in The Monument Men. He is currently doing a science fiction film in Budapest based on a novel by Andy Weir.
Matt met Argentine-born Luciana Barroso in Miami in 2003 while she was working as a bartender and he was filming a movie. Matt and Luciana married in 2005 and purchased double lots on La Gorce Island for $14.5 million that included a 1935 Mediterranean-style house they updated to reflect their own style.
Matt and Luciana have four children and renewed their marriage vows in Saint Lucia in the spring of 2013, renting out the entire Sugar Beach resort for $600,000. The star-studded guest list included Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and Don Cheadle. The ceremony was officiated by Damon’s good friend, and occasional arch enemy, Jimmy Kimmel.
Originally listed in April, 2013 for $20 million, the Mediterranean-style mansion looks like Old Florida glamor but with an updated modern interior containing 12,705 square feet with seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, home theater and custom office. The acre of premium waterfront land includes the main house with wood floors and extensive moldings, gourmet kitchen with professional appliances and prep areas, pool house with roof terrace and outdoor kitchen, both a serenity and walk-in tiled pools, hot tub and a two-bedroom guest house all behind lush palm trees and an eight-foot security wall. With 170 feet of water frontage on Biscayne Bay, the estate also has a boat dock and views of downtown Miami. The Atlantic Ocean beaches and multi-million dollar Miami Beach condos and luxury hotels are just a few blocks away. Matt’s former neighbors include Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Calvin Klein and Alex Rodriquez.
