Al Capone bought the mansion designed by architect Clarence Busch, in the 1920’s for $40,000. However, he invested a great deal of money renovating the estate which acquired then a new cabana, an above ground swimming pool and a guard house. The gangster lived there until his death, caused by cardiac arrest, in 1947.

In 1971 the house was bought by Hank Morrison, a retired Delta airlines pilot, for $70,00 and rented it as separate units. In 2011, the luxury estate was sold once again for $5.65 million. The current owner, a Florida company managed by New York accountant Anthony Panebianco, purchased the home about six months ago for $7.4 million.
