This Miami manse is certainly fit for rap royalty. Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is offloading his sprawling Miami home for a cool $29.5 million. Set on a half-acre parcel of land, the beautiful home is located directly on Biscayne Bay and has 110 feet of private water frontage.
The American rapper, born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., is known for some of the world’s greatest rap hits—and it certainly seems to have paid off. The home was completed in 2017 and he purchased it in 2018 for $16.75 million. In today’s red-hot Miami real estate market, it’s understandable as to why he is now flipping it for nearly double the price ahead of his move to Los Angeles.
The Miami Beach home is situated on Allison Island, a 35-acre island within Biscayne Bay that connects to the mainland via West 63rd Street. It’s known for its ultra-luxury homes, spacious plots, and famous residents. It’s the perfect place for those seeking privacy away from the prying eyes of paparazzi and fans, which is why many successful entrepreneurs, businesspeople, athletes, and celebrities love this exclusive area.
The home was designed by architecture and design firm Choeff Levy Fischman, which created a tropical modern masterpiece. It’s accessed through a private gate that leads to a tree-covered driveway. It spans 10,632 square feet and has seven bathrooms, nine bathrooms, and two half-bathrooms. The modern home incorporates many natural elements, like pristine tropical landscaping and water features, and has floor-to-ceiling windows throughout the home that lets in plenty of sunlight.
It feels even more spacious thanks to 22-foot ceilings in the two living rooms. In addition to these two sprawling lounge areas, there’s a kitchen with custom Italian cabinetry and top-of-the-line appliances from Sub-Zero and Wolf and a chef’s kitchen with separate staff quarters, great for those who love to entertain, and light-filled dining areas.
The primary bedroom is quite stunning and is the largest in the house. It also has dual primary bathrooms, a walk-in closet, sitting area, and a private terrace that overlooks Biscayne Bay. Every room in the house feels connected to nature; like the living and dining areas that overlook plenty of lush greenery, or from the terraces.
The first floor of the home opens onto the deck, which has a pristine infinity-edge pool; several loungers; a covered cabana with a grill, TV, and dining table; and access to the water. There’s 110 feet of water frontage on the sparkling Biscayne Bay with a teak dock perfect for a boat or as a jumping off point for kayaking, paddle boarding, or jet skis.
A simple, yet spectacular feature is the interior courtyard flanked by two towering living walls. Not only does it act as a respite from the sun but is perfect for Zen yoga or meditation. Other interior features include a movie theater, wine cellar, elevator, and more. The home’s soaring white walls also provide ideal spaces for a fine art collection. The exclusive gated community also has 24-hour guard-gated security to ensure the ultimate privacy and protection.
