Argentine prodigy Lionel Messi picked up a new four-bedroom perch in the greater Miami area back in the spring. The soccer-playing fellow paid $7.3 million for the 4,992 sq. ft. condo, which is located in a luxury tower in Sunny Isles Beach.
The full-floor unit is one of only 39 in the upscale building. It begins with a gallery floored in the limestone that runs throughout much of the residence, and culminates with a living room and a master bedroom, both with walls of glass that take in the panorama of city, beach and ocean.
The condo boasts first-rate amenities and craftsmanship, but the blue ribbon goes to the curving 2,100 sq. ft. wraparound terrace which, in this corner of the world, should be as well traveled as the unit’s interiors.
Messi is one of the highest-paid athletes in the world. His annual earnings typically exceed $100 million.
