Lil Wayne might not be commanding the same respect he once did for his more recent musical releases, but he’s still making big money moves after listing his Miami Beach mansion for a whopping US$25.9 million (AU$46.2 million). The waterfront property has everything you could possibly want to set yourself up in a tropical paradise, located on the stunning blue chip Allison Island and complete among some of Biscayne Bay’s very best views.
Born Dwayne Michael Carter Jr, Lil Wayne can credit his lengthy discography of 14 studio albums for his net worth that’s estimated to total more than $250 million. While he’s got more than his fair share of luxury cars, watches, and jewellery, his waterfront mansion in Miami resulted in one of the biggest cheques he’s ever signed when he purchased the property back in 2018 for US$16.75 million (AU$26.22 million).
Originally constructed just a year before Lil Wayne purchased the compound, 6480 Allison Rd (the only road on the prestigious island) contains no less than seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms, and is situated on a palatial half acre block. The multilevel mansion boasts nearly 35m of private waterfrontage and has an internal space that covers over 10,600 square feet designed by the Choeff Levy Fischman architecture firm.
After arriving through the palmtree adorned front gardens and making your way past the turquoise blue pond at the entrace, you’re greeted by an enormous open plan living space complete with windows that stretch from the marble floor all the way up to the 22-foot-high ceilings. You’ll also come across the kitchen that is fitted with bespoke Italian cabinetry, as well as Sub-Zero and Wolf appliances, all before you even make it to the door of the private chef’s kitchen.
The wild waterfront home also boasts a full home cinema and extensive wine cellar, as well as an rear garden and alfresco entertaining area that would impress any guests. The gardens at the rear also feature a infinity pool for relaxing as you look out over the bay, outdoor dining area and even a cabana.
It truly is a tropical mansion deserving of rap royalty and fittingly, will set you back more than a couple of milli to take it off the hands of the rapper of A Milli fame. The property is listed by Douglas Elliman and is currently seeking expressions of interest.
