Location: Miami Beach, Fla.
Price: $24,000,000
The Skinny: Shoe designer Donald J. Pliner is on a selling spree in 2011. First, he sold a majority interest in his namesake company to a private equity firm. Next, he put this dramatic Moroccan-style Miami Beach manse up for sale at $24M. Now, his Los Angeles pied-a-terre is on the market, too, albeit with a much smaller asking price of $1.695M. We're not sure what the leather maven is up to, but rumors point to a much larger L.A. spread in the works. No matter, for now we're content with the photos of his palatial waterfront estate in South Florida. The 10,000-square-foot four bedroom sits on man-made Star Island, where celebs Shaquille O'Neal, Will Smith, Rosie O'Donnell, Madonna, Alex Rodriguez, P.Diddy, and Sylvester Stallone have all shacked up at some point. Pliner's estate boasts Star Island necessities like 100 feet of waterfront, a dock, and a swimming pool, but also includes some of the designer's exotic—and, frankly, incongruous—personal touches from far-flung corners of the globe. The Moroccan architecture meets with antler chandeliers, enormous elephant murals, and slip-covered Balinese furniture. For the full effect, check out the video after the jump.
