Latin Pop Superstar Shakira Lists Her Longtime Miami Beach Mansion for $11.6M
Jason Merritt/Getty ImagesLatin pop star Shakira is shaking her hips out of her immaculate six-bedroom mansion in Miami Beach, FL. She had picked up the property for $3.3 million in 2001, just before her first English-language single, “Whenever, Wherever,” hit the U.S. airwaves. The 1950s-era mansion is now on the market for $11.6 million.
Seventeen years later, Shakira is known the world over, with a string of music awards and best-selling albums. Her house in Florida underwent a similarly dramatic transformation, from top to bottom. Located on a half-acre lot on Biscayne Bay with a private dock, the 8,700-square-foot home is a short drive from the Atlantic Ocean and the white sands of Miami Beach.
The house is bright and white, with a minimalist, contemporary aesthetic. Double doors open to the dining room, and a large window looks out onto the backyard and pool.
