These South Florida homes may be far from Hollywood, but the region is the place to be if you’re looking to rub shoulders with celebrities.
Shaggy, Cindy Crawford and Sylvester Stallone are just a few of the bold-faced names who’ve bought in and around Miami in recent months, and trendsetters in tech and finance also flocked to the region. Some New Yorkers seeking more space have traded Soho for South Beach, and even Pastis wants to be part of the action.
If you’re looking for your own luxe home that would be fit for a celebrity — with plenty of space, privacy and swanky amenities — take a look at our editorial team’s picks for the top Miami area homes on the market.
