Rick Pitino Sells Miami Mansion For $17 Million

Rick Pitino Sells Miami Mansion For $17 Million

Besieged college basketball coach Rick Pitino released its impressive mansion on Indian Creek Island in South Florida in November 2017 (about a month after a graduate of the University of Louisville for his involvement in a “pay to play” scandal), with an asking price of $ 29 million. Now, two and a half years later, the mansion has finally found a buyer – at a significantly lower price of $ 17 million.

If you are not familiar with Indian Creek Island, this is an extremely rich enclave in the Miami area, nicknamed by some as “Billionaire Bunker”, and for an idea of ​​the precision of this nickname, the recently sold Pitino manor has been specifically billed in marketing materials as the cheapest property on the island!

Magnificent house

And this, despite the 12,000 square feet of living space of the magnificent house, the complex-style swimming pool and the luxurious interiors in Italian marble. But with Pitino’s new concert at Iona College which earns him $ 1 million a year (relatively paltry compared to the nearly $ 8 million a season he made when he was laid off), he is probably relieved of having finally concluded the deal for such a large and expensive property.

300-acre island

Inside, the house includes eight bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, with additional amenities, including a private elevator, a home office, a large gym that could be refurbished to serve as a ninth bedroom, and a dock at the edge water with elevators in the back. This is in addition to the other amenities found on Indian Creek Island, of course, like the 18-hole golf course and its own island police force 24 hours a day. And then there are these incredible views on the waterfront which are common to almost all points on the 300-acre island
