Al Capone’s Miami Beach Mansion Sells for $7,000,000
The last days of mobster Al Capone’s life were spent in a mansion on Miami Beach, a 36,000 square foot place he bought in 1928 for $40,000, bought from Clarence Busch of the Anheuser-Busch brewing family. That $40,000 in today’s money would be $538,000 but the mansion sold for much more than that.
The Mediterranean style house was recently restored and sold for $7,431,750. It features seven bedrooms and seven baths, a guest house and pool cabana and a 30-by-60 foot swimming pool, which was once the largest pool in the area.
Despite the beauty of the mansion, Capone’s last days spent there were not happy ones as he had dementia caused by syphilis and was prone to violent outbursts.
