Former New York Yankee A Rod Buys Star Island Mansion

For $18.5 million, a company run by former New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez just purchased a mega-mansion on Miami's infamous Star Island in Miami Beach.

Casa La Bonita, located at 14 Star Island Drive features 0.9 acres with over 100 feet of water frontage directly on Biscayne Bay. The estate was built by renowned Mexican developer, Carlos Gosselin.

The property boasts imported entrance gates that welcome guests to the gorgeous Mediterranean-style estate opening to arched hallways and courtyards. Throughout the home, it is evident the custom-made Hindu doors, a movie theater, a poolside gazebo, an elevator, high-impact windows, a pool, and a boat dock.

Rodriguez is the manager of Star Island 14 LLC, which is the name of the purchaser of the home. The former MLB All-Star Rodriguez's addresses in Miami and Woodland Hills, California, were included in the $20 million mortgage from First Republic Bank.

The off-market transaction cost $463 per square foot. In 2020, the house last sold for $24 million.

Rodriguez has purchased on Star Island before. In 2020, Rodriguez and singer/actor Jennifer Lopez bought the home next door, 13 Star Island Drive. Rodriguez and Lopez are no longer together and it is unclear if 13 Star Island will be sold or if either will take sole possession.
