Tennis Pro Andy Murray Unloads Condo at Jade Brickell
Tennis pro Andy Murray, currently ranked the #2 tennis player in the world and a 2012 Olympic gold medalist, is selling his $2.9 million 45th floor unit at Jade at Brickell Bay, according to Variety’s Real Estalker. The Scotsman picked up the unit, with distant views of the tennis center at Crandon Park, in July 2008 for $1.575 million, must have used Jade Brickell Unit #4501 as a vacation home since then (as evidenced by the limited interior decoration and kitschy Union Jack pillow as a memory of home), finally listing it for $2.9 million. MLS data now indicates a sale is pending.
Since setting up camp at Jade, Murray picked up two UK homes, including a ‘mock-Regency’ outside London, and a 19th century Victorian mansion called Cromlix house outside his hometown of Dublane. Just like many a local boy gone big, yes even Murray returned home to nab the village manor. Museum or not, just think of how many a very young Miamian has walked into Vizcaya and thought “someday I’ll buy this place.” No word yet on whether Murray is finding somewhere else to stick his flagpole in Miami, or going home to play ‘country squire’ full time.
