This 12,000-square-foot Miami Beach home once echoed with the vocal stylings of Jennifer Lopez, who sold to health care honcho Mark Gainor in 2005. Now, Gainor is attempting to more than double his $13.9M investment with a $29M asking price. One glance at the market would tell you that 2010 is no 2005, but with its vast catalogue of lux features, this seven-bedroom, 10-bath mansion might have a chance at avoiding the chop house.
Among the litany of winning features: grounds by famed landscape architect Edwina von Gal, a 6,000-gallon koi pond, 200 feet of prime water frontage with dock, massive wood-paneled dressing room, and the obligatory swimming pool. The muted tones of the interior provide welcome respite from the blazing Florida sun, with the classic detailing of a rare Florida pre-war. None of this comes Jenny-From-The-Block cheap, but it does come for $29M.
