If you don’t already know, record producer Scott Storch used to own this home. He bought the mansion back in 2006 for $10.5 million. SunTrust Bank foreclosed on the home last year, but Storch bought it back at auction for $5.5 million. Scott sold the property, dubbed Villa Ferrari, to Rockstar Energy drink co-founder Russell Weiner for $6.75 million in February of this year. Well, Russell has just heaved the home on the market after just 8 months of occupancy for a spine tingling $20,000,000. I really have no idea where he gets that price from considering past sales of this home have been nowhere near that.

The 20,000 square foot mansion is located at 70 Palm Avenue in Miami Beach, FL. It was built in 2004 and boasts 9 bedrooms, 15 bathrooms, a grand 2-story foyer with y-shaped staircase, billiards room with custom bar, massage room, custom walk-in closets, wine cellar, home theater, 8-car garage, swimming pool with spa and a volleyball court.

    Funny, as I was looking at the listing just 2 days ago.

    First, lets get the price issue out of the way – DREAMING! Worth $12 million TOPS. And that’s IF you can find someone in love with this very particular style.

    The home itself is a menagerie. I like how it faces the MacArthur Causeway, only because every time I go to Miami I love ogling at the homes on Palm Island, as I’m sure many tourists do as well. The home is built to impress (at least on the outside pool view) and it does. I really do like the rear elevation, with the multiple balconies and double staircase.

    With that said, I don’t really like the way the home was executed, overall. Obviously, the home was purposely meant to be vulgar and to shout “I have $$$$$$$MONEY$$$$$$$$$” as much as possible, but I think you can have vulgar *and* make it look magnificent (AKA the Malnik Mansion in Ocean Ridge, FL). The front facade, although grand and imposing, comes off as cheap. It’s probably because of that hideously huge porte-cochere – it’s missing something, perhaps some more columns on the front. Either way, I don’t like it. Inside, I think it’s the same problem – too big with no sense of scale. Good luck trying to fill that living with a logical use of furniture. It’s simply too big to make it look elegant. The rest of the home is obviously decorated as neutral as possible.

    Mostly what I love about the house went with the original owner – the cars. Storch’s Veyron, Rolls Royces, Ferraris, Lamborghinis and everything else would make up for this not quite right mega-mansion.

    And overall, if you want this type of lifestyle, I think Star Island is a better choice. A little cliche, but so is the lifestyle….

    Egads…make it go away. I hate everything about this house. This is just a big ugly white elephant that shows what happens when people have more money than taste. Tear this place down and build something attractive and tasteful in its place. This is clearly the antithesis to the previous house in Bridgehampton.

    Weiner did the same house flipping thing with an incredibly tacky house in the Hollywood Hills back in 2007; the interior looked very much like the one in this house. He bought that place in June 2007 for $8,600,000 and then put it back on the market in October 2007 for $20,000,000. Apparently he thinks that having his name on the deed makes a place worth 2 to 3 times more than he paid for it. There’s no way he’s going to get anywhere near his asking price for this Miami house.

    Did I mention that I really, truly hate this house?

      Ha! I’m going to the S. Florida International Auto Show on Friday. Shall I leave a note on the front gate, something along the lines of “How does it feel to own a supposedly $20 million tear-down?”

      I agree with almost everything you said. The cost to make this place feel like a home and not a monument to new money would better be spent starting from scratch.

        It looks like those pics were taken through the front gates, which raises the question: Why would someone leave their cars sitting out, and sitting in garages with the doors open, unless they wanted to show off? Tacky…

          Honestly, if I lived in a home where the public could see my driveway (A1A, Star Island, Royal Palm Yacht and CC, etc.), I would leave a couple cars out as well (and if my collection consisted of over 10 cars, I’d rotate it daily. but I’d NEVER leave them out overnight). I’ve seen it many times where 2-3 gorgeous cars are left outside…highly unlikely that they would be used that day too. Maybe it’s tacky, but if you have it, flaunt it! 😀

          scott storch built his entire lifestyle around showing off, which is just sad because that’s what ended up ruining him. he was actually a really good music producer until everybody stopped working with him.

          THIS FLAMING, REPULSIVE LITTLE TWERP WIGGER is THE ABSOLUTE WORST of what I HATE about materialism and GREED RUN UTTERLY AMOK. HE MAKES ME WANT TO VIOLENTLY WRETCH. With that said….

          This TEAR-DOWN should have EXACTLY THAT done to it. You’d have to PAY ME to live in it, A LOT. And everyone’s exactly right….the seller is CLINICALLY PSYCHOTIC if they think they’re gonna’ get EVEN HALF that price. LOLOLOLOL…….

    This guy is on crack.
    My buddy is going through a divorce and just sold his house that he built for $1.5 million for $850,000 and I have seen $3 million to $5 million homes sell for a little over a million here in Michigan and I know Florida is way worse than we are, so there is no feasible way this house will get more than he paid for it and if so, not much more.

    I have a neighbor who is a Bank of America exec and he told me some months ago that under no circumstances will they do a mortgage for a condo in Florida, no matter the down payment. I don’t know if that is still the case.
    Perhaps Damiel could give some insight as the the market in Florida and the financing situation.
