Shakira moved to Miami in the late 1990s, buying a house in 2001 at the edge of Biscayne Bay for $3.38 million. Making Spain her home for many years, she recently did an extensive modern update to her Miami waterfront home and has put it on the market.
The 8,708-square-foot home overlooks Miami’s waterfront skyline and lights of the Julia Tuttle Causeway with more than 100 feet of water frontage, a private dock and ocean access at Government Cut or Haulover Inlet. The six-bedroom, eight-bath, two-story home sits on a half-acre lot only two blocks from the Miami Golf Club greens.
Located on a street where many celebrities live including Matt Damon, Cher, Billy Joel and Jennifer Lopez once lived, Shakira has completely renovated the two-story house into a Zen oasis with light hardwood floors throughout, an updated kitchen with high-end appliances and home gym where specialty flooring for dancing was added when she purchased the property. It has a fireplace for the rare chilly night and an attached two-car garage framed by crimson bougainvillea. Rooms are large and airy and filled with sunlight and there is a low profile “hookah" lounge area in the entertainment wing. After purchasing the home, Shakira added a wooden deck around the pool area with open air dining pavilion with built-in bar and an entire three-bedroom wing measuring 1,663 square feet. Surrounded by tall privacy hedges and an iron entry gate, the property meets all the privacy requirements sought by celebrities.
