Al Capone is one of the most infamous personalities of the 20th century. Well, the world’s most feared gangster had a home that showed off all the wealth he got during the great depression by smuggling liquor and other dark businesses. His Miami beach hideaway is for sale at a price of $8.5 million.
The 10,000 square-foot, 7-bedroom estate sits on the exclusive Palm Island and consists of one of the largest porperties in LA. It includes a main house, a two-story guest house, a pool and a private beach.
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.
