Alex Rodriguez Selling His Homes, Estates of the Day
Baseball player Alexander "A-Rod" Rodriguez has been in the news a lot lately and it hasn't been for his skills on the baseball diamond. A-Rod is currently going through a divorce and is rumored to be Madonna's new man. He's also dropped a bit of real estate on the market. The Real Estalker recently had a piece on the New York and Florida properties he has up for sale.
Rodriguez and his ex-wife Cynthia have put their four-bedroom unit at the Trump Park Avenue on the market for $14 million. The apartment has been renovated for today's casual buyer with a large family room and open kitchen space. The listing for the apartment is here.
He has also put his home in Coral Gables, Florida on the market. The Mediterranean home built in 1952 was purchased by the Rodriguez family for $12 million in 2005. The home sits on the water with more than an acre of land and has six bedrooms, a pool and a three-car garage. The grand home does have some rather dramatic choices in wallpaper but the pool area and outdoor space is lovely. It is listed at $14.876 million.
UPDATE: As of January 2009, Rodriguez has done some major price chopping. The NYC apartment is down to $10 million and the Coral Gables home is listed at $12.3 million, not much more than he paid for it.
SECOND UPDATE: The NYC home has sold and the Coral Gables home is now listed at $9,999,999 million.
