$40M Villa on Miami Beach’s Star Island Is the Week’s Most Expensive New Listing


A luxury estate on Miami Beach’s Star Island is this week’s most expensive new listing on realtor.com®. The price tag for the lavish spread? A cool $40 million.

The mansion has bounced on and off the market over the past few years, but reappeared this week with a new, lower price. The 1.5-acre spread bills itself as the “most prime location on Star Island.”

Rally Manufacturing founder Marco R. Iacovelli picked up the property in 1987 for $1.83 million, according to the Real Deal.

The home first came on the market in 2016 for a whopping $65 million, then it went up for auction in 2017. In 2018 it was listed for $42 million.

Iacovelli, who has other properties outside the area, has said he and his wife no longer need the space, the Real Deal reported.
