Prolific drug lord Pablo Escobar had multiple homes and properties at the time of his death, including a pink mansion in Miami Beach, Florida.
While it’s impossible to know for sure, Escobar’s wealth was estimated at $US30 billion at his peak.
“The King of Cocaine” was the leader of the Medellín cartel for many years, which was responsible for 80% of the global cocaine market in the ’80s. He was gunned down in 1993 trying to escape a hideout in his home, though it’s unclear exactly by whom.
But in 2016, it was demolished by owner Christian de Berdouare.
Escobar was known for hiding cash and valuables in the walls and under the floors of his houses, according to Sotheby’s Realty, which is selling the property. When the house was demolished, two hidden safes were found.
“I’m very excited to see the house of the devil disappearing right before our eyes,” said Christian de Berdouare, the home’s then-owner, when the house was demolished.
“This was the biggest criminal in the history of the world. I would like to be associated with something more uplifting, but nevertheless, it is a part of the city,” he told the Associated Press.
Three years later, the property is up for sale again for a cool $US15.9 million.
The property is 30,000 sq. ft., and boasts a 150 ft. long waterfront edge.
As you can see from above, the house’s former location wasn’t totally isolated, but still surrounded by land.
There are plans to build “a new modern mansion on site,” according to a statement provided to INSIDER by ONE Sotheby’s International Realty.
Sotheby’s features images of homes like this as possible replacements on the property.
Sotheby’s describes it as “a sprawling piece of property with a unique past.”
From the backyard, you can see downtown Miami in the distance.
A nearly $US16 million-view.
To anyone who wants to live out their Colombian cocaine “Narcos” fantasies, this is the property for you.
… without all the cocaine and crimes, of course.
