Lionel Messi arrived in Miami in the middle of the year after signing with MLS club Inter Miami, to continue the brilliant career of a player who is undoubtedly already among the greatest footballers of all time.
When Messi and his family arrived in Miami they didn’t have to worry about where they were going to live, as the family had a few properties in South Florida.
But that was not enough.
Lionel Messi’s new mansion
The Argentinean world champion with the Albiceleste, has just bought a luxurious mansion in Fort Lauderdale, in Bay Colony, and made it his new home.
The characteristics of his “humble home” are neither few nor minor, being a property for which Messi paid $8.5 million in exchange for 3,200 square meters and a mere 16-minute drive from Inter Miami’s stadium, the DRV PNK Stadium.
The house is a modern architectural masterpiece with 10 bedrooms, nine bathrooms, large windows to let in the warm Miami sun and, of course, a swimming pool.
In addition, the house is surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens and landscaping to create a tranquil atmosphere, in contrast to the hectic Miami street life.
As if that were not enough, the house has a gym, spa, garage for three cars and even a small jetty to moor some boats to visit the family.
Messi’s presence increases the value of homes in the area
Messi’s arrival in this exclusive area of Fort Lauderdale has increased the value of properties near the Argentinean’s home.
Businessman Patrick Bet David said in a YouTube interview that Messi’s arrival in the neighborhood increased the value of his property from $7 million to $25 million.
