Scoop: They Just Keep Coming-Sunset Island Estate Trades for Almost $20M

Known in the real estate community as Villa Tranquilla, the home of George Lindemann Jr. discreetly changed owners for $19.8M. Located on prestigious Sunset Island I, neighbors include Enrique Iglesias Jr., Robert Toll and Anna Kournikova. Kournikova recently listed her home on Sunset Island III for $9.4M.

Sunset Island, Lindeman Estate

1736 W. 28th Street, Miami Beach, Sunset Island I

Lindemann bought the property in 2000 for $8.425M. Villa Tranquilla was built in 1936 and was designed by noted Palm Beach architect Mauricio Fatio. The single-story neoclassical estate has more than 11,000 SF and seven bedrooms and baths. The equally impressive lot boasts 70,000 SF and 453 linear feet of prime, wide-bay water frontage.

Lindemann, an avid contemporary art collector, purchased the property in 2000 and enlisted German architect Annabelle Selldorf to refresh the property. Originally listed in March 2009 for $29,900,750, a sale price of $19.8M doesn’t break any PPSF records, BUT puts it right up there with Star Island estates, which sell for $1,700 to $2,400 PSF.

In 2008, Lindemann’s parents sold their home in Palm Beach for $68.5M.
