Two adjacent waterfront properties on Miami Beach’s Sunset Islands sold to the same buyer for $44.5 million, and one of the houses previously belonged to Enrique Iglesias.
Property records show philanthropists Israel and Tania Lapciuc sold 1753 North View Drive to the Sunset Island Land Trust for $28.5 million, and Spanish Rose LLC sold 1771 North View Drive to the same trust for $16 million.
The combined sales mark one of the largest in recent months in Miami Beach, a market that has been flooded with New Yorkers and buyers from other high-tax states.
The larger property at 1753 North View Drive includes an eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom, 10,158-square-foot mansion. The Lapciucs have owned the property since 1978, when they paid $600,000 for the home, originally built in 1938, records show.
