Lil Wayne Finds a Buyer for Contemporary Miami Mansion

Rapper and music producer Lil Wayne has found a buyer for the Miami mansion he paid $16.8 million for in 2018, according to TMZ. Weezy, as he’s fondly known, listed the Allison Island property in September of last year for $29.5 million, is now in contract to sell the property for an unknown amount.

The 23,760-square-foot home designed by architecture firm Choeff Levy Fischman, sits on the edge of Biscayne Bay and comes with one hundred and ten feet of water frontage, a private dock, a pool, and an outdoor kitchen. Despite being a new build, Wayne made upgrades to the seven-bedroom nine-bathroom manse, which probably accounts for the nearly $12 million jump in price.

Inside the 10,300-square-foot, two-level abode is an elevator, a movie theater, wine cellar, two family rooms, staff quarters, and a chef’s kitchen and butler’s kitchen. Floor-to-ceiling sliding doors are found throughout, ushering in the glorious Miami weather from almost every room. There is even a lush, green interior courtyard accessible through the chef’s kitchen and one of the family rooms.

At 2,500 square feet, the massive primary suite is impressive. There is a boutique-style walk-in closet, dual bathrooms, a large sitting area, and a giant terrace that overlooks the backyard.

In 2017, Lil Wayne sold another contemporary Miami beachfront property, but at an $8 million loss. Although the current deal is still in its final stages and we have yet to find out the closing price, by the looks of things, this sale more than makes up for the prior loss. Cyril Matz of Douglas Elliman held the listing.
